I seem to begin every post with a comment on how busy we have been and the first couple of weeks of the last half term of the year have been as busy as ever!
On Friday morning, we celebrated Thanksgiving Mass with Year 3 who all looked wonderful and in the afternoon eight of the class represented the school in a cross country event. The week before, four children had represented us in a World Games event. We have also spent time making and painting clay tiles for display. I'll add details and times tomorrow as it would be wonderful if you could go and see the tiles that the children, ably assisted by Mrs Corcoran, have worked so hard to make.
In class, we have completed our RE topic 'Building Bridges' and will be learning about Islam over the next week or so. As it is Arts and Multicultural Week this week, we will create covers for the Qur'an which we will display at Celebration Evening. Once we have looked at Islam, we will move onto our final topic on 'God's People'.
In English, we have been honing our explanatory writing skills and have written some very creative descriptions including explanations about how we imagine television works. We will complete this after Arts Week.
In maths we completed our work on division and are all now fantastic at long division and complete units on time, negative numbers and Roman numerals in between our artistic creations.
In science and computing we have been using branching databases to classify living things and once we have completed this we will look more closely at some of the living things we have sorted in science.
In history, we will complete our work on the Vikings this week and from next week we will be considering 'Why so many people live in mega-cities?'
Next week will be dancing, making masks, tee shirts and other things on a 'carnival' theme.
