Growing In Faith and Learning
It has been a very busy month in school with our Christingle service in Church, Robins and Kingfishers Nativity Baubles, Christmas Fayre, Christmas dinner and Christmas trips.
Robins have been getting into the Christmas spirit, performing their Nativity Baubles. They all did so well, getting on the stage and remembering where they needed to be. This week they have enjoyed their Christmas dinner, where the children had a surprise visit from Santa, who gave them all a present. They all loved seeing Santa at school! They also enjoyed their Christmas trip to Winter Wonderland. All of the children behaved brilliantly and enjoyed throwing a few snowballs! To finish off the week, they have had hot chocolate as well as doing lots of creative activities.
In English Kingfishers have been developing their understanding of using non-fiction texts and have produced a great piece of informational writing on the Great Fire of London. In Maths they have been focussing on problem solving and reasoning involving 2D and 3D shapes. They explored the significance of each part of a Christingle and then made their own which we lit during our lovely service at church. The highlight of these past few weeks has been our production, which the children thoroughly enjoyed! And to top it off they shared a fantastic morning with Robins at Winter Wonderland this week.
Owls have created films all about themselves. They practised performing their lines and filmed them this week. In maths they have been learning how to solve division calculations and have completed some Christmas symmetry. In RE they have been writing a diary entry based on the shepherd’s experience in the Christmas story. In English this week, they have written their own stories based on the Iron Man. They also enjoyed their Christmas trip to the Pantomime.
Falcons have had another busy 2 weeks. Last week they finished their science unit on light and the children enjoyed doing different experiments. We have nearly finished our class text for this term and the children are looking forward to our new topic on Harry Potter. Falcons enjoyed their Christmas trip with Owls to the Pantomime.
