Read all about it...

Last week was feeling good week and this week we celebrated World Book, so we have cetainly got this second Spring Half Term off to a flying start.

4k really enjoyed the drumming workshop and I was impressed at the variety of sounds produced and rhythm maintained after a mere 45 minutes of tuition and practise.

On World Book Day, we were very lucky to have a packed day with lots of visitors, some of whom you probably recognise, sharing their expertise. After our 'parade' of book characters, Mrs Jones talked to us about the process she went through when she wrote her book. We were amazed and impressed at the amount of time and effort that went into editing and proof reading -especially when we heard that she only had 6 weeks to write the actual text!

 Then we had another parent, Mrs Vicente share a story and some Catalan traditions. It was lovely to hear a different language and we recognised the story of St George.

The children are really enjoying learning about World War 2 and certainly have an impressive amount of knowledge already! They are also working hard at understanding Friend or Foe and have written some wonderful letters or diary entries  that show they have empathised with David. 

In Maths we are looking at money and will move onto measurement next. As telling the time is still proving a challenge for many in the class, please encourage them to wear, and use, a watch.
