First full week

Week beginning 8.9.2014

What a fantastic first full week we've had! I have been very impressed with the children's attitudes to learning in class and know they will continue to shine throughout the year. 

If you were not able to attend the Parent's meeting, I hope you have now received the powerpoint slides. If not, do pop in and I can give you them,

We were delighted to welcome our visitors this week and we particularly enjoyed our 50th Anniversary celebration on Tuesday. In the afternoon we designed and painted ceramic tiles using religious images as our inspiration! Photos to follow shortly! We also wrote some fantastic Kennings poems, which are now displayed in the hall.

In English we have started learning about Historical Setting story writing (based on our WW2 topic). We have learned about the importance of the vocabulary an author uses to grab the attention of the reader and to set the scene. 

In RE we have been reflecting on the story of Abraham, the father of our great nation. The children in Year 4 came up with some amazing comments and questions during discussions about Jesus' family. Next week we are going to read the story of Jacob, if you would like to do some pre-reading at home.

Have a lovely weekend.
