We had a fab time at the pantomime this week. The children were brilliantly behaved and had a wonderful time.

Earlier in the half term:

We had a great time at Pizza Express.

We have had a busy week. We have been rehearsing for our Christmas play, thinking about our spelling – especially the Common Exception Words we have learned so far, adding and subtracting 10 in maths, thinking about dependency in Science and in History / Art we have started to make our planets.

We have thought about Guy Fawkes this week and the reason behind why we celebrate with fireworks.

We made some lovely world habitats in Science and were very creative ( and messy!) 

We wrote some brilliant diary entries in English, imaging we worked on the moon. We did really well at remembering to write in first person too!

We had a brilliant day on Friday 1st November for our Lord’s Prayer Enrichment Day. We split into groups with children across the school and did a range of activities including learning a version of the Lord’s Prayer in song and sign language, made bread, wrote prayers, made an artistic representation of the Lord’s prayer and made things to hang in our school reflection area.

We have had a busy first week. The children have been identifying common and proper nouns in Literacy and we have started to look at the story ‘The man on the moon’, a text linked to our History topic.

In art and History, we finished our clay moon footprints by painting them.

We had a great first gym lesson with Tom on Tuesday. We loved using all of the equipment.

We also loved hockey later in the week.

Useful Links

Here you will find a useful website, should you be interested in finding more interesting texts for your children to read. You can browse by age so that you know they’re appropriate, as well as finding some above or beneath. Sharing stories with your children is such a powerful tool and can accelerate their reading, vocabulary, writing and general outlook.
