Head's Update - December 2017
November and the beginning of December have come and gone in a blink of an eye, we have been so busy!
Our class assemblies have continued to showcase learning to parents and peers alike.
Poppy class showcased their learning in a number of subjects. For English, descriptive extracts were read out. To highlight learning in maths, there was an excellent demonstration of how to multiply by 10, 100 and 1000. For science, a chocolate bar hit against a stool certainly proved it was a solid! An understanding of the continents (with comical penguin walk to represent Antarctica!) was shown for Geography and finally, for PE, some first class points and patches balances were displayed.
A special mention must go to the group who retold the story 'The Days the Crayons Quit'. It was word for word perfection!
Primrose class meanwhile told everyone about the Gunpowder Plot and Guy Fawkes. They related some interesting facts about fireworks and showed us posters about staying safe on bonfire night before using instruments to accompany their singing of 'Bonfires Burning' and '5 Little Fireworks'.
Sycamore class assembly was a celebration of their whole term’s work on the Battle of Britain. There was poetry and information on Anderson shelters and planes. There was some coding parents had to work out and even a quiz. The assembly finished with a popular wartime song.
