12th January 2024

Well what a week it has been.  It was great to see everyone back at school this week and hear all about their holidays.  They were so excited to share all their news.

We started the week with a welcome back assembly and to focus our minds for the new term ahead.  We have lots to get through and we made a good start this week.

In maths we were consolidating our addition and subtraction strategies and in English we were analysing some images from our book for this half term.  Next week will find out the title of the book.  We also did brilliantly in our phonics assessments too.

In Art, we began to think about what is art.  We looked at some photographs of people doing various activities and we had to decide whether it was classed as art or not.  We had a good discussion about what constitutes art.  We came to the conclusion that lots of things could be classed as ‘art’.  We then had a go at being artists with things from around the classroom. 

In computing we were practising our typing skills and in music we explored pitch.  We explored high and low notes on the glockenspiels.  In RE we began to look at our unit on Muslims.  We began by looking at the 5 pillars of Islam and learning the names of each one.  We understood how they are all equally important to each other and all build the foundations of a Muslim’s beliefs. 

We had 4 promotions in Big Maths this week.  These went to JOSEPH, EMILIE, JESSIE and ROSIE BE. Well Done.
