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!
Today the Reverend Marcus led the harvest assembly . We all enjoyed a good sing . Thank you for your donations of food, these will be sent to the food bank .The vegetable characters were brill!
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!
We are looking forward to the term ahead and have some exciting things planned. During our first week back at school we have begun to explore our topic – Ancient Greece. The children have been looking at different Greek Myths and re-telling them to the class, some children really enjoyed the dramatization!
A big thank you to the children who brought in photographs of them reading in an unusual place, our ‘We Read Everywhere’ display is looking fantastic.
Year 6 visited UKSA on Thursday morning to try their hand at sailing. Everyone had a great time, some getting wetter than others!
Later on in the term, we will be making papier mache Greek vases; if you have any old newspapers we could use, please bring them into class.
