The children have worked hard on some English and Maths assessments this week. They have worked well and showed off their abilities - well done!
Our mountainous mountains are looking more mountainy now! We will finish decorating them next week and adding all the features that we have been learning about.
Don't forget that Monday is our school trip to the Water Recycling Centre. Please can the children come to school in clothes that can get mucky (and, if possible, bring a spare pair of wellies or rough trainers). The children will also need a packed lunch in a named carrier bag (so that it can be thrown away afterwards). We are really looking forward to it!
We had a rather sticky end to the week in Willow class as we got busy making our papier mache mountains. We showed some excellent teamwork and great creativity. We'll continue working on these next week.
We've also been creative designing Peace gardens which we'll get making next week too!
We have seen some fantastic maths skills this week - we subtraction!! Look out for the maths homework so the children can show you how brilliant they are.
Another busy week in Willow class. Lots of number work and addition happening in Maths (keep an eye out for the homework) and lots of writing up our famous mountain research in English - busy busy busy!!
We hope that you all received your letter about our forthcoming trip to the Water Recycling Centre. If not, just pop into class as we have spares. Just to confirm that Willow class will be going on Monday 16th October and Sycamore class will be going on Tuesday 10th October. This will be a really fun opportunity for the children to see the water cycle up close and apply their knowledge and understanding of it. If you have any questions, please come and ask.
What a fun week! On Wednesday, we had our first ukulele lesson - have a look in our Class Photos section.
We have been writing a magazine article about the Water Cycle. We are now experts and will be more than ready for our trip to the Water Recycling Centre in a few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for a letter about this trip coming soon.
Not only have we been continuing to learn about mountains this week but we have also been finding out about the Water Cycle. We have started to plan out a magazine article all about it and have even started to learn a song (for the link to the song, check out our Lesson Links area on the class webpage).
We have been very democratic this week and have been voting for our school and class councillors. All the children who wanted to apply for the roles wrote a statement about why they would be a good choice which they then shared with the class. Well done to all the children who applied. See our winners in our Photos section.
What a wonderful first week back to school! The children have all come back to school raring to learn which is fabulous!
We have started thinking about our new topic this week - Misty Mountains. We have been ordering and comparing mountain heights in Maths, writing mountain shape poems in English and using Google Earth to find the locations of mountains around the world. Have a look in the Class Photos section on our class webpage to see some pictures.
