 Weekly update

 

In English, we completed our descriptive writing about Pip’s first visits to Satis House, highlighting the contrast between how grand the house used to be and how much it has begun to decay, through neglect. We spent a lot of time considering how to describe the outside of this once-magnificent mansion, and also a mysterious room, where we find rotting food on a banquet table, including an elaborate wedding cake…

 

Finding fractions of amounts and finding the whole amount, when we know the value of a fraction, has taken up our time in Maths this week. Now, we are moving onto our final unit before the Christmas break, of co-ordinates. We will also be sitting a few assessments using the end of Key Stage SATs papers from previous years. We will do this a few times throughout the year, so the children know what to expect and feel as comfortable as possible when it comes to the real assessments in May.

 

Forest School came to a conclusion with a banquet of marshmallows, sausage rolls and hot chocolate (with more marshmallows), all cooked on an open fire in the forest. The children have had a brilliant time and it was great to see them reflecting so positively on the experience and telling us all what they’d learnt.

 

CrossTeach came in to lead ‘The Christmas Experience’, with three stations, filled with role-play and investigation. The aim was to highlight the Christian message of Christmas, focussing on who Jesus was prophesied to be and how he came to be a saviour for all mankind. The children enjoyed the experience and we all got to wear silly hats, as you can see below.

Reading Menu

Here is the reading menu for this term.  They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners,  they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge. 

We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading  in order to complete the whole menu by Christmas.
