Growing In Faith and Learning
It's been a busy 2 weeks in school, with lots going on.
Robins enjoyed their Goldilocks theme when they came in their PJs and made their own porridge. They acted out the story, sung songs and played a lot of games. The children have had their first formal Phonics, maths and literacy lessons.
Kingsfishers have been comparing and ordering numbers in Maths, and writing captions for postcards in English. Their topic work has focused on the human and physical features linked to the Island of Struay from their Kate Morag story. They also enjoyed their first Forest school session this week.
Owls have been counting in multiples of 10, 100 and 1000; ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers and representing numbers in different ways in Maths. In English the focus has been on writing a description of an ancient pirate ship using expanded noun phrases. Their topic work involved making Roman clay plaques and Ancient Roman purses. Cars have been whizzing around the classroom, whilst they have been learning about friction.
The Kestrels have had fun with the key boards, chime bars and recorders recreating their own Mamma Mia soundtrack. In PE, the children have been developing their Netball skills. Science has focused on the space theme.
Falcons have really been enjoying their new text ‘Letters from the lighthouse’ and produced some excellent descriptions and diary entries. Maths has focused on place value and negative numbers. The children have been choreographing some excellent world war 2 dances which we hope to put on the website. In RE, we have been exploring faith through the arts.
