I hope your children are re-energised and are ready for a busy 7 week period to Christmas.
The Christmas production is underway and the children are now rehearsing and practicing ready for that big day. We have a fantastic story to share and are looking forward to the performance in December.
In Maths we are covering statistics, so we will be learning about collating data and how we show and communicate our results in bar charts and pictograms. English we are still using "Escape from Pompeii" as our stimulus text and have created some descriptive Volcano poems and are now looking at newspaper reports and how we can write these. We continue to learn about the Romans and how they influence our lives and technology today which will nicely progress to Anglo-Saxons after Christmas.
Our recent science lesson involved an outside visitor erecting a planetarium inside our hall, the children had a great time inside the dome and continued to discover lots of facts and information about light, including how light is made up from a spectrum of colours.
As always if you should have any queries, questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Lynn via reception or in person after school.
