‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term B

Week 2

Christmas began on Monday in our bush craft session where we have begun to make our Christmas Stars by Lashing and frapping willow together using wool. We are going to create 2 triangles and then over lap them to create our Christmas Stars. It was quite tricky but we never gave up and no one managed to tie themselves up which is always a bonus!

On Thursday we had a Remembrance Day assembly in class and thought about all of the brave soldiers who have fought for us and made great sacrifices for us. We then rehearsed and performed the poems In Flanders Fields and Lest We Forget and then we went on to write our own acrostic poem for Remembrance Day using ideas we had learned and discovered.

Week 1


This week we have come back ready for another exciting half term in the lead up to Christmas and have enjoyed being Maths detectives solving bonfire night Maths Mysteries to find out who stole all of the hotdogs. We found it quite trick but didn't give up until we had worked out the culprit. In Music we have been continuing develop our understanding of rhythm during our Rock Steady Music sessions. 

We are all excited about the fire works tonight and hope every one has a fab time and stays safe.
