What we have been up to this week (W/C 28.09.20):

We have had another great week in Horse Chestnut class. We completed our first Big Write this week based on the story of ‘The Whale’ and have continued to build up layers onto our shoes in Art. In Science, we began looking at invertibrates and went on an invertibrate hunt around school. The children all enjoyed there guitar lesson, where they looked at three notes this week.

We looked a relay running in PE this week thinking about matching pace and using a relay baton.

In science this week, we looked at classifying invertibrates. We went on a invertibrate hunt in the school garden area.

We continued adding layers to our 3D shoes this week, ready to begin extracting shoes next week.

We spent some time using some of the books in the classroom to find out some more facts about the Romans.

We had another fantastic guitar lesson on Thursday.
