Guided Readers: Please ensure that the Guided Reader book, along with homework books, are returned to school on a Wednesday. It is important to return these as other children in the school are waiting to make use of the resource. Many thanks for your help in this matter.
We had a lovely start to our last topic of the year! We had a fantastic time at Oakhill park, collecting sticks, flowers, leaves and berries. With these materials, we made our very own woodland crowns!
We would just like to say a HUGE thank you to all those parents who volunteered their time to come into class and talk about their religion or how they are a real life superhero! It was so lovely to have you all. We really appreciate it.
The Great Fire of London
As we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London, we thought it would be a great opportunity to witness what it might have looked like when the houses caught alight. We made houses from shoe boxes, painted them brown and then added some windows and doors. After one failed attempted, we tried again. From a distance, we were able to see the houses catch fire and spread because of the wind!!
What a fantastic experience! With just a few sticks and elastic bands, we were able to create a moving model of the London Eye! We worked successfully as a team and carefully followed instructions to make the model.
This week in Maths we have been learning to tell the time to the hour and to the half hour. We thought we would take advantage of the gorgeous weather and become human clocks!!!
