SATs presentation for parents HERE.
Today we had our sports day and we had so much fun. The dance warm up was my favourite part! All the children tried their best and achieved some personal bests.
We had a wonderful Harry Potter day, filled with costumes, fun and activities. I, as the head of Hufflepuff, was truly impressed.
Our class has been given Bangladesh. We have researched the country and found out lots of interesting facts. Over half of the people there are farmers. We have made a collage of a Bengal Tiger and design our sun bears with a Bangladesh theme.
This week we are looking at different places around the world comparing them to here. Our class has been given Bangladesh to focus on. So if you have any interesting facts that you know or that you have found out please let me know.
Our new text this half term is the adventures of Peter Pan. We have been exploring the feelings of the different characters. How must Wendy have felt when Peter crashed through her window? Would her parents believe her? Why did they leave a dog to look after them?
Today was our Pirate Day. Our shipmates all dressed in their best pirate attire. We met up with Captain Rocky Cliff who taught about life as a pirate.
Our new topic is called Wriggle and Crawl. We have been focusing this week on minibeasts. We went on a bug hunt and saw lots of millipedes, spiders, worms, woodlice and centipedes. We did get to see a lady bird, but there wasn’t many in the area we were looking. The children loved looking at them, so if you get a chance at home go and investigate what you can find. We then made up our own bug using the different parts that they have. We had dragon beetles, daddy long lady birds and all other mixtures.
Next week we will be having a visitor who is bringing his own collection of minibeasts. I hope he has a tarantula as lots of the class are excited about this.
Today we have been using our mathematical skills to try to create symmetrical patterns.
Today our children visited Our Lady of the Wayside church as part of our RE this term. Father Gerrado was very good and explained lots about the church.
We have been busy planting lots of different things this half term as part of our Scented Garden topic. This week we were planting sun flowers and strawberries.
