NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

RECEPTION CLASS

This week Reception performed their very first Nativity shows to parents and carers! They were all fantastic – they sang their hearts out, danced their life away and mustered up the courage to face a room full of adults watching! We are so proud of each and every one for all their hard work and effort in this.

While we were not busy rehearsing or performing, the children used their sounds to write a Christmas wish list to Santa. They turned pine cones into beautiful Christmas pines, in two steps. First, they painted each little bit of the pine cone and then let them dry. The next day, they decorated with pompom ornaments and heaps of glitter!  

Not only was the home corner nice and cosy with Christmas decorations and advent calendars, right beside it, our water area turned into a festive lounge. The mixologists fixed up an array of festive drinks – from frothy hot chocolates with marshmallows to yummy iced mint and berry concoctions.  

If you missed the EYFS meeting for Reception Class, please click here to see the PowerPoint from Mrs Phillpot.

REMINDER: P.E days for Reception Class is Friday.

YEAR 1 & YEAR 2

YEAR 3 & YEAR 4

Year 3 and Year 4 have been immersed in our topic this term, India.

This week they have been creating yoga movements based on Indian Gods and physical features, like the River Ganges. They discovered the stories behind the yoga positions and showed how amazingly flexible they all are! Very impressive work and a big thank you to Mrs Kelly.

The String Scheme Concert last Friday was a highlight for Year 4 and it was an absolute joy to watch them perform having only started in September! There was a definite sense of pride amongst them and rightly so. Hopefully it will inspire them to keep music as an integral part of their lives as it can be so rewarding and playing with others builds invaluable life skills too.

Well done Year 3 and 4 for another very busy and productive week!

Reminders: PE on Wednesday (outside) & Thursday indoors (shorts and t-shirts will also be needed)

Year 4 String Scheme takes place every Friday, please ensure all instruments are in school.

YEAR 5 & YEAR 6

Year 5 and Year 6 have been finding out about the harsh world of slavery as part of their trade topic in history and geography.

As part of this, we also looked at how slaves would attempt to escape this and the ways they would communicate with each other in a code to help keep spirits high or to communicate ways to avoid capture.  One of these was to make freedom quilts with different code symbols.  We have begun to research and design our own version as part of DT so I am re-learning to sew!

REMINDER: P.E. days for Year 5 is Tuesday and Wednesday and Year 6 is Tuesday & Thursday.
