What a busy start to the term the children have had.
During our Maths lessons the children have been thinking about ways to pay for items and have been selecting correct coins to buy the item. The children have also been working on a task that helped them to consider what jobs around the home and garden could be done to earn pocket money.
In English the children have continued to explore pattern and rhyme in a poem. This week they focussed on a poem called ‘Monsters’ and enjoyed changing the words to create their own version of the poem.
There was much interest shown on Wednesday when the ‘Women with Waders’ came to work on the school pond. The children were keen to find out what was happening and had lots of questions to ask, such as:
How did you get the fish out?
How many days will it take to clear the pond?
How many fish did you find?
How did you get all the water out?
Why are there piles of bricks around the pond?
It was a wonderful experience for the children to see and I am sure they will have much fun exploring the pond during Science lessons.
We began our new topic this week and had a very successful trip to Pizza Express on Thursday. All children had the opportunity to make their own individual Margherita pizzas. They learned about the different ingredients in the actual dough and how to handle it. They spent time stretching the dough out, spreading on the tomato topic and adding the cheese. At the end of the morning all children had a pizza of their own to take home and enjoy for tea! A big thank you to all our parents who accompanied the children on this trip, it was much appreciated.
In PE the children have been using the large apparatus to demonstrate a variety of movements such as over, under and through. This week a number of children did not have PE kits in school so please can you ensure your child has a PE kit in school.
In RE the children have been thinking about thanking God for all the wonderful things that they have in their lives.
Next week is going to be another busy week. On Thursday it is World Book Day and I am sure the children are excited about dressing up or wearing their pyjamas of a favourite book character. You will have noticed that for homework the children have been asked to design a book cover in preparation for the day.
We will also be getting ready for our Mothers’ Day Liturgy which is on Friday at 2.15 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there.
Enjoy the weekend!
