Growing In Faith and Learning
Robins have had a very busy and enjoyable two weeks. Last week they looked at ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and did lots of lovely colourful activities based around crayons. Towards the end of the week, when the weather turned very chilly, they went for a winter walk outside, listening to how the grass and the leaves sounded when it was so cold. This week they are reading the text ‘The Colour Monster’, discussing feelings and emotions, as well as what we can do when we feel a certain way. On Tuesday they had their Eucharist in school, where the children all behaved wonderfully.
The children in Kingfishers have produced some wonderful artwork depicting London burning, using a range of media – chalk, sponge printing, paint, wax. In English they have been learning how to ask questions, label and add captions to pictures. In Guided Reading they are working on developing their inference skills. They are really enjoying their new Geometry unit in Maths, focussing this week on naming, describing and sorting 2D and 3D shapes, including everyday objects. They shared a lovely Eucharist Service with Rev Deb and Rev Liz, both of whom applauded the children on their prayer participation and exuberant singing! They have also made beautiful diva lamps to celebrate Diwali.
Owls have been learning about the early forms of film. In maths they have been learning how to solve multiplication calculations and have been practising their key times tables. In RE they have been writing Kenning poems based on the Trinity. This week, they have finished making their scribble bots and have used the new computer suite to produce a report about how they made them.
Last week Falcons participated in the Lichfield Music Share concert held at the Cathedral. The children were absolutely amazing and a brilliant time was had by all. Rev. Debra was also in school for children to take part in a Eucharist service, which was also very special. In class, they have still been carrying on with their work on fractions and children can now multiply, add and subtract them. They are moving on to look at the perimeter and area of shapes. Children have now also completed their non-chronological reports.
