Autumn 2

Week 6 (WC 6.12.21) 

This week we have been very busy making arts and crafts for Christmas. We have also been thinking about people who may be alone over Christmas and we have made these beautiful cards which Morisons will be distributing over the next few days.

Week 5 (WC 29.11.21)

This Week we have been thinking all about  "Advent".  Advent means “arrival” or “coming,” and we will be thinking and remembering why Jesus came at Christmas.


We have also made Christingle candles. Each part of the Christingle candle has a special meaning:


  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon is for the love and blood of Christ
  • The dried fruit represent the four seasons
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world

This week we have completed our Celtic brooches, the detail and work that has gone into them is amazing, well done! In literacy we have begun a new writing unit about instructions. In class we have been trying to follow verbal instructions. We also had a lovely afternoon of Friday celebrating Children in Need.

This week we have been learning all about 'Hillforts' and 'Roundhouses'. We learnt what life was like living in an Iron Age Hillfort and we read about the life of an Iron Age girl called 'Brenna'. Then we drew some sketches of a roundhouse using the text. 

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
