What a busy end to our first term we have had. Santa took time out of his busy schedule to pay us a visit and deliver us gifts, while we drank hot chocolate round the campfire and placed our wishes on the tree. The grotto looked absolutely magical. The children had a brilliant time at their class party, playing games, dancing and enjoying hotdogs. They watched the Emperor’s New Clothes pantomime by The Northern Stage and rose to the challenge of an assault cycling course to test their skills. The children did a wonderful job silk painting and sewing for their cards and calendars.
We would like to wish you all a safe and very merry Christmas with your families. Looking forward to seeing you all in the new year.
Bread making has been our focus this week. The children took part in a great bread bake-off, designing and baking their own bread. They had a brilliant time tasting different varieties of bread and then tasting and evaluating their own. Paul Hollywood look out, we have a class full of talented bakers!
We have decided to share some of our amazing writing with you this week. Enjoy listening to some of the war poems we have written. Also, we have been learning about what life was like for families in Britain during WW1 and writing diary entries about this.
Coding has been our focus this week in Computing. In Art created our WW1 silhouette final pictures, which look stunning. We have been investing square and cube numbers in Maths.
To mark Remembrance Day we have been reading and reciting war poetry and writing our own. We have learnt ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae. In Art we have been studying War sculptures and pictures and using these to form our own ideas to create silhouette pictures.
In Math this week we have been focusing on finding factors and common factors. In English we have been writing letters home from the trenches of WW1, following on from our research in History.
