Cannot quite believe that December is upon us already and the Christmas preparations are well under way. Our new RE topic of ‘Waiting’ has enabled the children to think about how we can prepare ourselves during the season of Advent. The children have made their own little Advent wreath, bells to decorate the Christmas tree, an Adventcalendar and listened to the story of the Annunciation. The RE homework set for this week will support the children’s understanding about how Mary felt when she was told she was going to have a baby called Jesus.
In Maths, the children have been using mathematical language to describe the position of objects in a grid.
In English, the children have been working on the non-fiction book, ‘Who Lives Here?’ They have been creating diary pages which have included headings, pictures and captions.
In Science, the children have been learning about the season of winter and had much fun exploring objects frozen in the ice.
During Art and Design, the children have focussed on three kinds of lines to create their beautiful winter pictures; a thick line for the tree trunk, medium lines for the branches and thin lines for the twigs.
The children learnt a very valuable lesson on Wednesday when Mrs Moloney came in to speak with the children in assembly about road safety. The focus of the assembly was to Be Safe and Be Seen. The children learnt about the importance of looking, listening and holding on to an adults hand near busy roads. They were given different scenarios about road safety to think about and learnt a rhyme to reinforce this important message.
The children have been working hard to learn the words of the songs for the performance of ‘Behind the Stable Door’. We look forward to seeing you on Friday at 10.00a.m. Please remember to send in any slips for seats by Wednesday so that we are able to allocate any extra requests for seats.
If your child would like to take part in the Strictly X Factor show then the auditions will be taking place on Monday lunch time.
Enjoy the weekend!
