Welcome back !The class have settled down to work quickly and are enjoying the challenge of short and long division !
We have been continuing with our Ancient Greek topic this week. Everyone has written instructions on how to defeat a mythical beast and some more work has been done on our Greek pots!
The pumpkin display in the hall looks fantastic! The hard work and creativity that has gone into carving the pumpkins is evident, well done, everyone!
We hope all our families have a wonderful half term and we look forward to welcoming you back after the break.
It was lovely to see so many parents in school for our afternoon of maths games, the children loved sharing them with you. As well as having arithmetic and reading comprehension assessments this week, we have been working on our Greek pots and finishing our planet mobiles. The Greek Myths are now complete and some are on display outside the classroom, please do come and have a look.
Could we please ask parents not to use the Class Dojo app as a form of communication as it is not always possible to check the site regularly and we would hate for any important messages to be missed. Please use the homework diary instead.
This week we have been very ‘hands on’ in class.
During history, the children started creating their Greek pots with the help of balloons and papier mache. As part of our science topic, space, we have been studying the planets that make up our solar system and the children made some lovely models. We looked at the poem ‘The Wreck of the Hesperus’ during English and used Plasticine to create a scene from one of the verses. On Thursday, all of key stage 2 came together to play different maths games and even created their own.
Well done, everyone!
The children have now settled into the new classroom routine really well and are getting used to making every second count! Everyone has been working really hard, especially during Maths and English where we have been learning about subtraction and direct speech.
We chose our prefects this week. Kye, Jess and Shannon will assist our head prefect, Jodi, head boy Lewis and head girl Maisie in ensuring the rest of the school adheres to the school rules. We have also allocated other jobs throughout the class such as tuck shop monitors, playground equipment monitors and librarians.
Have a great weekend everyone!
