Well that's it for 2020! I think the children went home very excited today (sorry) and they have had a fun day today. They have worked really hard this term so they all deserve a rest and a very happy Christmas. If they do get bored over the next two weeks, they could write a poem of hope for the trust poetry competition (see the newsletter they brought home earlier this week) or have a look at this website:

Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend. I think I have told the story of this week in pictures below - it's been a busy week! We have another busy week coming up with projects to finish and shows to watch. We will be making our Christingles at school and will have a lighted procession which we will film and send to you. On Friday, our last day of term, children can bring in games to play but not electronic devices please. Have a great weekend. 🎄🎄🎄
Hello everyone and happy festive Friday. The children had a well deserved treat this afternoon, making Christmas decorations and decorating the classroom while Christmas tunes played along with a sneaky chocolate! They all tried extremely hard in their assessments throughout the week and the difference in their focus and attitude is amazing. I'm so impressed with every one of them. We have started a new science unit on electricity and on Thursday we modelled an electric circuit with the children acting as electrons and a jug of water representing the cell/battery. We have planned an electricity investigation which the children will be carrying out on Monday. The children have completed some impressive explanation writing all about natural disasters and next week our English focus will be a bit more cheery! (Christmas poetry) We also have a special treat for the children on Wednesday morning which will take them back to their learning on World War 2. Homework is from the maths revision book (page 40,42 and 44) and workbook (page 34 and 35) They have all chosen ten new spellings and have a copy of Ryan's word search which he made using words from our geography topic. Have a great weekend 🎄🎄🎄
