Class 1 had a fantastic day at the zoo this week and they were a credit to you all. They enjoyed seeing penguins up close and meeting Santa and his Elf. The children learned lots about penguins and where they live, they also enjoyed seeing many other animals at the zoo.
On Thursday the children have written an independent recount of the trip when they tried hard to use all their new writing knowledge and skills.
On Monday we began rugby season in our PE lessons, making the most of the good weather, we have a bit of work to do on our passing skills!
In maths we've been working hard to master our methods for subtraction, while in English we left "Matilda" behind to move onto an exciting new text called "The Labyrinth"
During topic work the children have continued to learn more about the Nile, producing colourful fact files which are being added to our Egyptian display. Finally, after a long absence, Dougal has returned to Class 2, causing much excitement......I will leave this to the children to explain!
Class 3 have had a busy week again! We hvae been finishing our War stories and now we are writing about our trip to Duxford last Wednesday. We had a great day out and were lucky enough to have two volunteers talk to us about their experiences of the War.
On Friday we had Mr Kitcher, a parent of a Year 3 student, come and talk to us about being a solider and showed us some original kit. He even taught us some drill!
This week in Reception we have started learning all about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light! We started to make our own diva lamps out of clay which we will paint next week when the clay has dried.
We were very lucky on Wednesday to go on a trip to Colchester Zoo! We did an amazing penguin experience where we learnt lots of facts about penguins and got to see them up close. We also met Santa and were given a penguin toy to take home!
