Week beginning 16th January
The weather brought a slight distraction to the end of last week, but thank you all for getting your children here in good time and sensibly dressed. Having not been in the building before with snow, we were all amazed and shocked at the noise the sliding snow made as it slid from the roof.
Our learning in English, based on The Hole by Oyvind Torseter, reaches its final week where we will plan and write our own sequel or continuation of the original. I have not used this book before, but thank you for your positive feedback on this learning. In maths, there is a little more practice of finding fractions of numbers before moving onto recording tenths and hundredths as both fractions and decimals.
There is another investigation in science this week, where we are making a gas and trying to explain how we know this invisible substance is present. We started our gym learning last week with log, egg and forward rolls on mats and benches and the theme of rolling continues in our lesson on Tuesday.
This week sees the final swimming lesson for the current group, with the next group starting on Friday 27th January, so make sure all the permission forms are returned.
Geography and art are closely linked by the theme of water this term, with rivers in geography and the works of Monet in art.
Congratulations to Theo D, who received our behaviour award last week.
