In PSHE this term the children have been thinking about their hopes and dreams for the future. The children have impressed me with the maturity they have shown during these lessons. They have been able to give thoughtful responses to questions and listen carefully to others ideas. They decorated stars with their hopes and dreams on and hung them in the prayer garden.
Thursday was World Book Day and all of the children looked superb in their costumes. Thank you parents for all your hard work, the children had a fantastic day. In the morning we decorated our class door and the children took part in a competition to design a book token for next year. In the afternoon Mrs Lock, a governor at the school, read to the children. The whole school then met in the hall for the parade, where they had the opportunity to show off their wonderful costumes.
Next week in Literacy we will continue to look at non-fiction texts and the children will plan a newspaper article. Their finished articles will be made into a class supplement.
In Maths we will be studying different types of 'measure', starting with time and length. The children will be learning how to convert between times on 12 and 24 hour clocks, calculate time intervals and solve problems involving time. They will then learn how to calculate the perimeter of shapes, progressing to calculating perimeters where there are missing lengths.
Hopefully you have received the letters regarding our trip to Hatfield House this term and a Science workshop which will be held during Science, Maths and Engineering week. Thank you to those parents who have already returned these slips. Could I please ask that any outstanding slips are returned on Monday.
I look forward to seeing you all at parents evening next week. As always, the classroom will be open with books from across the curriculum in their trays for you to look at. There is also some wonderful work displayed around the classroom, the children are particularly proud of the Spiderwick Chronicles book which they created.
