Growing In Faith and Learning
It has been a very busy 2 weeks in school.
Robins have been working hard in maths particularly focusing on counting and 1:1 correspondence. They have begun their nativity rehearsals and have been learning their Christmas songs.
Kingfishers have begun their new class text - Major Glad, Major Dizzy. They have re-told parts of the story and made predictions. Topic work has been linked to their whole class text and Victorian toys. In RE, they have been exploring why Jesus is special to us. Science work has focused on the weather and in art they have begun to look at the work of William Morris and creating their own repeating pattern wallpaper designs.
Owls have been multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000 in Maths and looking at the effect. In English they have been writing letters linked to their class text - The Tin Forest. They are all thoroughly enjoying the story. In science they carried out an investigation to see which magnets are the strongest, making predictions and analysing their results.
Kestrels have been using formal written methods for multiplication and division and applying their skills to word problems in Maths. In RE, they have started their new unit on Festivals of Light with quiet reflection and class worship. In English they are continuing Midsummer Night’s Dream with lots of drama and writing Agony Aunt style letters. In History, they have been researching monarchs of the Tudor period.
In English Falcons have been writing humorous alternative endings to a chapter. Maths work has focused on fractions - simplifying and adding. In RE the children have written job applications for the role of the Messiah. In DT, they have started designing a WW2 plane which will made out of wood.
The whole school trip to the cinema was a great sucess. The children had a great time and their behaviour was impeccable.
