This week, we've enjoyed lots of festive activities including writing our Christmas riddles, some Christmas times tables and a Christmas quiz. We have missed the children who have been poorly and hope everyone is soon feeling better!
I'd like to wish a very Merry Christmas to all of you and I look forward to seeing all of the children again in the new year ready for a busy and exciting Spring term.
We are starting each day here in Ash Class with a Christmas riddle advent calendar... Here is today's - see if you can guess what it is! Answer at the end of the blog.
I am usually hung on doors. Sometimes I can be a decoration. I am made from evergreens, twigs and flowers. I am a circular shape.
Next week, when the Mog's Christmas Calamity stories are finished, we will be writing our own Christmas riddles in English so watch this space next week for some of the children's own riddles. We have completed 2 Maths assessments and 1 reading assessment this week. Well done to the children for taking these in their stride and giving the tests their all. We've carried on with our Multiplication and Division topic in Maths this week and have learnt all about factors and factor pairs. In PE, we braved the cold to work on our underarm throws and target practise on Tuesday. We've had 2 science lessons this week to finish off our learning about rocks. We learnt how rocks can change due to weathering and erosion and then we learnt all about the rock cycle - as illustrated in the poster below.
On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to be visited by Father Christmas! He's a very busy man at this time of year so we are grateful to FONTS for organising this. All of the children were so pleased with their gifts - some lovely new books. We followed this with a brilliant Christmas dinner on Wednesday. Crackers were pulled, hats worn and brussels sprouts eaten! Thank you Mandy and Nicki for the amazing meal. We have lots more festive things to come including our carol concert later today, Christingle next week and much more...
Have a great weekend everyone.
P.S. Today's riddle answer is a wreath.
The day of the Christmas fair is finally here! After 5 weeks of incredible hard work, the Christmas tree decorations are ready to sell! Well done to all of the children for their efforts, and special thanks to Miss Wallis and Mr Hunt for coordinating all of the sewing activities.
This week in Ash Class, we've been learning how to write speech into our stories. We will be using this skill next week when we write the story of Mog's Christmas Calamity. In Maths, we've been recapping everything that we've learnt about this term including place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and area. We've had a push on Science this week and completed 2 lessons - the first of which was learning how metamorphic rocks are formed, and the second of which involved identifying a variety of rocks. This lesson was really hands on and the children enjoyed putting their learning into practise.
Today, we've spent the afternoon creating some beautiful Christmas-themed stained glass windows which I hope will brighten your windows at home!
Next week is looking like a busy one. Don't forget Christmas jumper day and dinner on Wednesday.
