Autumn Term 1

Week 8

Sport stars of the week.

We've had a fantastic final week to the half term:

Parent's afternoon when the children made Tutankhamun's tomb with their parent/grandparent.

In science we all became "mummifiers", as we investigate how to mummify a tomato. We made our "natron" with salt and baking soda and can't wait to see the results after 2 weeks.

week 5

This week some of the children have been working hard at home, following up their learning to produce work to add to our displays. 

In R.E. the topic, Ourselves, ended with a Respond and Celebrate session. The class planned together and chose the reading, what work to share and how we should respond to the Scripture. We celebrated our uniqueness and how we can use our qualities to live in the way God wants us to.

Week 4

Class 4's P.E. skills are coming along fantastically well! This week we worked on defending skills, first one defender against 3 attackers to try to defend a larger space. Then, equal numbers of defenders to attackers to work on man-to-man marking.

Week 3

This week the children have enjoyed looking in the Atlas and finding out about Egypt. Some of them have brought in pictures and keepsakes from relative's travels to Egypt. Thank you all, this makes our learning so much more interesting and relevant.
