Week beginning 4th December
Our aim from now until the end of term is to keep to our routines in an attempt to quell the rising seasonal excitement. However, with sandwiches to be made, a Christmas Tree festival to be visited and practices for our Choral Christmas and Carol Service to fit in, we may be fighting a loosing battle.
So, in English, we will focus on stories in a familiar setting, using the Horrid Henry stories by Francesca Simon. Maybe not the most challenging of reads, but engaging, entertaining and fun and good for illustrating a variety of grammatical features and writing techniques. This week we will look at describing characters and settings, using adjectives and descriptive phrases. If you have any of these books at home that we can use in our learning, please name them and send them in.
In maths, we look at another method of calculating division while in RE, we look at why Jerusalem is important to many pilgrims. We come to the end of our coast learning in geography by looking at different views on changes of land use and the finale of out DT learning comes with the opening at 2:30 on Wednesday of the pop-up Blue Class café for a strictly limited time. Please check with the children if they need to bring anything from home to help with the making of these sandwiches.
Please remember that Wednesday is the PTA Christmas Bazaar starting at 5pm. These events take a lot of time and hard work to organise, so please support the efforts of our PTA, as all the profits go to give your children those little extras that would not normally be available. Thanks to your previous support of PTA events, we now have two new table tennis tables and class packs of equipment for the children to use at break and lunch times.
Finally, congratulations to Esther, who received our behaviour award last week.
