Growing In Faith and Learning
Robins had a successful open door and we would like to say a massive thank you to all that attended. They are learning all about The Stickman at the moment and have been out and about a lot looking for material to help in class. It is VERY exciting!
Kingfishers have written their own versions of ‘Hurt No Living Things’ using adjectives. On their Welly walk they collected leaves and made leaf windows. In Maths, they have finished addition and moved onto subtraction. In Science they have looked at seasonal changes and in RE they have talked about why we wear poppies.
Owls have been introduced to their new exciting text ‘The Tin Forest’ and have written predictions about what they think the book will be about using expanded noun phrases. In maths they have been working hard on mental maths methods and rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. In science, they have been sorting materials using magnets.
Kestrels enjoyed collecting God’s natural treasures on their Welly Walk which were then used to make clay tiles. They have started their new history topic ‘The Tudors’ and have begun to study the life and works of Shakespeare.
Falcons have studied Walter de la Mare’s ‘The Listeners’ and studied the language and meaning behind the poem. They had a really enjoyable trip to the Arboretum to lay a poppy wreath and pay their respects. In DT, they have started their designs to make model World War 2 planes.
Also in school this week: Choir have started their rehearsals ready for performing at the Christmas lights switch on and at the Christmas Fayre, Two members of the school council, Grace Dix and Madison Williams, represented the school in a Network Council Meeting, and Yasmin Turner won the Parish Council speed awareness competition - congratulations Yasmin.
