Week beginning 19th November
It was really great to see so many of you at our class worship last week. The children were really excited to perform in front of you and did a great job, bearing in mind that they were the first class to be asked to take part. Thank you also for your supportive comments.
Later that afternoon, we were chopping, cutting and spreading for our DT learning and photos of the finished topped crackers are in our gallery. We are pleased to report that there were no accidents, so expect to be flooded with offers to help prepare the Sunday roast any time now.
In preparation for our parents’ evenings, time will be taken up this week with formal assessments to check the learning that has been embedded, and to also identify any gaps that require a little extra input. Elsewhere, we continue our multiplication learning, focussing on and practising our 6 times tables, while we will combine our English and geography learning this week, reporting on how erosion can affect the lives of those living near the coast. RE moves onto how Christians express what God is like while we will be researching different sandwich fillings for our DT learning. I have pencilled in Wednesday 5th December for the children to make the final sandwich, and you will receive an invitation to sample it on that afternoon.
Christmas has definitely ‘started’ with Choral Christmas practices starting and boards to be backed in preparation for our display depicting Hark the Herald Angels sing, where your children may have already tipped you off as to the nature of ‘the angels’.
Wednesday is a non-school uniform day for Blue Class, being our reward for the best KS2 attendance for October. While on the subject of clothing, the forecast is for temperatures to plummet, so please bear this in mind for playtimes, Tuesday PE and hockey, netball and football clubs.
Congratulations go to Tyler, who received our behaviour award for last week.
