Autumn 2 Week 1
Autumn 2 Week 2
On Remembrance Day, we had a whole school assembly to remember those involved in wars. We looked very smart in our red poppies. We wrote a description of a poppy field and also wrote about life in the trenches of WW1. After the 2 minute silence, we visited our Garden of Remembrance to lay some wreathes there.
Congratulations to our children who received an Achievers Award this week. Well done to Lucy, Mia, Sophie, Jay and Blake 😊👏🌟
Autumn 2 Week 3
In Science, we have been learning how we change and grow. We then lined up in age order to see if the oldest would also be the tallest. We discovered that the line didn’t reduce in height from the oldest to the youngest, and that some younger children were taller than their friends who were older!
Congratulations to all of our Achievers this week! A big well done to Chloe, Elise, AJ, Ella and… the whole class who were complimented by other members of staff on their lovely manners! 😊👏🌟🏆
Autumn 2 Week 4
Autumn 2 Week 5
This week we have been learning about the Jewish festival of light, Hanukkah 🕎. We experienced what it was like to receive gifts and learned the story of the Maccabees in the temple who had enough oil in their lamps for 8 days. We learned about some Jewish traditions for celebrating this festival, such as playing games, giving gifts and preparing special food.
We have been learning a new Christmas song about a Christmas party ready for our virtual performance on Friday. We have also learned the British Sign Language signs to accompany the song so that hearing impaired people can enjoy the performance too.
In Science we have been learning about the importance of staying healthy by exercising. We found out that exercise increases our heart rate and we compared our heart rates after a calm body activity and a busy body activity. After we had been doing star jumps, our hearts were beating much faster, our faces were pink and we got a bit out of breath!
In Science we have also focused on hygiene, including the importance of hand washing. We have sequenced the steps of hand washing and we have also taken part in some experiments with ‘germs’ to see how we can get rid of them! We found out that our secret weapon against germs, bacteria and viruses is... SOAP!
Congratulations to this week’s children who received an Achievers Award this week. A big well done to Ralphy, Freddie, Isla, Jonny and Millie B 😊👏🏆🌟
