WOW! What an amazing set of performances! We are so proud of all of the children for their excellent singing, dancing and performing. They have all worked incredibly hard and performed their hearts out during all three productions. ‘Proud’ really is an understatement!
Thank you to everyone that came to watch and be part of this special moment.
What an amazing and busy half-term! Africa Class have thoroughly enjoyed Live Advent, engaging in lots of super activities and busy learning!
Mrs Connolly and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in the lead up to Christmas. We hope you all have an enjoyable Christmas holiday and Happy New Year!
This term, we have been learning all about ‘Places.’ We have: explored our local environment, walked to Tesco to buy toppings for porridge tasting, learned how to make play dough, built lots of models of buildings and created observational drawings of different famous landmarks.
It has been a super-busy half-term, jam-packed with lots of busy learning and we have loved every minute!
As part of our Awe and Wonder week, we have been learning to investigate and explore. We are learning to think critically, make predictions, explain our thoughts and question ‘why?’
To help us with this, we made mug cakes in the microwave and explored the process of change. We also investigated hidden objects in ice cubes and talked about how we could get the ice cube to melt.
In celebration of World Book Day 2020, we are taking part in the ‘Share a Million Stories’ challenge (more details about this have been included in children’s homework books).
Africa and Antarctica classes have been learning about the Illustrator, Nick Sharratt. We have enjoyed exploring and sharing some of the books he has illustrated.
In Phonics, we have been continuing to learn our sounds in addition to our ‘tricky words.’
