What a busy time we’ve all had in Class 5 and 6 this half term!
We were very excited about Julia Donaldson’s stories ‘Room on the Broom’ and ‘The Gruffalo’.
Class 6 came into their room to find the witches hat, her broomstick and bow. We were all intrigued by this and went looking for her footprints in the Reception garden.
In Class 5 a Gruffalo Hunt took place. Children looked for clues such as poisonous warts, knobbly knees and purple prickles not to mention ‘terrible teeth in his terrible jaws!’
These stories led to some fantastic storytelling, map-making, writing letters and making ‘Wanted’ posters.
All the children were engrossed in the fantasy worlds created in these popular books.
Have a look at the pictures below showing a selection of their wonderful work.
The children have been enthusiastic to learn new skills:
In phonics – blending and segmenting.
In maths – a focus on adding numbers.
In RE, learning about Advent – getting ready for Christmas. A big thank you to all parents/carers who have joined us for prayers of Mondays.
We hope you enjoyed our Christmas performance, I’m sure you’ll agree that they put on a fabulous show and all the children’s hard work certainly paid off!
We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We hope to work in partnership with you – we will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your children’s education in school.
