Week beginning September 23rd


The children loved the adults visiting our class on Wednesday.  We were busy with our topic (Wild Wood), thinking of different creatures you'd find in the woods and then sorting them.  First, using a Venn diagram, to arrange animals into 3 categories  - herbivore, carnivore or omnivore.  Then, researching different creatures, to sort them into the correct habitats.


To celebrate the feast of St.Michael's, pupils chose what to create to remember his actions.  They created excellent prayers, posters and comic books.


For maths, we have been practising our 6 times tables.  We took part in some practical, problem solving activities, using our 3 times tables to support our learning.



We have finished reading Christophe's story (don't forget to check it out on ActiveLearn) and created character profiles for the main character, thinking of and using a variety of adjectives to describe him and his actions.    


Homework Menus have gone home and we've already a brilliant variety of work brought in.  Morgan shared this amazing 3D spider with us.  It's currently sitting atop our class tree.

Week beginning September 9th


Thank you to all the parents/guardians who took out the children to local forests / woods.  The children have been able to share great insights and brought in lovely items to aid discussion.


We have been creating different fact files based on different wild life in the woods.  The class have mind mapped different ideas for what they want to learn this term and we have plenty of fantastic ideas to work with.


For our R.E. topic, we have looked at Jesus' family tree and are currently learning about his different ancestors.


Our current Literacy book, Christophe's Story has just been added to ActiveLearnPrimary, so make sure to check it out to help remind you of the different events in the story.
