Weekly Update 2nd February 2018
This week we have been thinking about how astronauts get fit and healthy. We have thought about ways we can keep healthy through eating the right food, exercising and being happy. There were many discussions about what we should eat lots of/ some of and little of!
Our RE unit this term has included learning stories from the new testament as we have begun to explore the question-‘ what do Christians believe is special about Jesus and the message he brings? Today we have been looking at the calming of the storm, but so far Zacchaeus is still the firm favourite story.
In maths, we have been playing games which involve adding 2 single digits altogether. This links with the home learning this week. Please try to use the word ‘add’ and ‘altogether’ at home to help consolidate this new learning.
We have had lots of discussion about the super blue moon this week- many children were sharing their sightings of it!
Today we are looking forward to Class 2 assembly. The children always come back excited about what the other children are learning which is lovely to see.
As we need to keep the readers changed and monitored please leave the yellow contact book in the book bag for us to see, unless of course it’s put into the ‘ please change me’ box at the beginning of the day!
Have a lovely weekend!
On Wednesday we met Mr Singh, who came in to talk to us about Sikhism. He visited all the classes, but we were lucky enough to meet him twice for a storytime. The children listened so well and asked lovely questions.' Little Mr Singh' was a highlight.
Wednesday morning saw us all creep inside a huge astrodome, ready to explore space, the planets, the stars and watch clips from the moon landings. A wonderful way to begin our Space Topic! Our Wendy house is well on its way to becoming a space station. We have begun to create questions we would like answers too. Check out https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/stargazing for some lovely clips, which may answer some questions your child may have.
Our children were helped to create their Christingles by the worship committee following a little presentation on the symbolism involved. The older children as usual were very caring towards our youngest members of the school family. We all went to the church together where Rev Hills helped us think about the true meaning of Christmas. The sight of the all the glow sticks being held around the whole church was very moving. Our children sat so well and we were very proud of them.
