What a lovely end to the term. We celebrated Christmas in so many ways. Some wonderful nativities and our Christmas craft morning – attended by so many parents and grandparents – really got us in the festive spirit.
The children really enjoyed their Christmas meal, particularly being served by the staff, and our Christmas cinema experience and our party rounded off the festivities. We were even lucky enough to be visited by Father Christmas and one of his elves.
We hope you all have a joyful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
We the Curious
This term, Year Three have been continuing their topic on Frozen and Magnets and Forces. To support their learning, we went on a trip to We the Curious where we took part in a workshop and had some time to explore. During the workshop, the children looked at pushes and pulls, how magnets work and completed an investigation on friction. The children really enjoyed their day and we feel it has deepened their understanding of this topic.
Christmas Carol Concert
Last week, the pupils took part in a Christmas Carol Concert. The children used amazing oracy skills to share the beginning of the Christmas story with the audience. We also had children who acted out the story. These children had to listen carefully to the events being told so that they knew when to come on and off of the stage. All the children worked extremely hard, performed well and sang beautifully.
The Christmas season is officially upon us!
We have been ‘wowed’ by the children’s level of enthusiasm and effort that has gone into their singing and dancing this year. The Year One children were absolutely AMAZING in their performance and we are incredibly proud of them.
Even though the Christmas chaos has begun the children are still putting fantastic efforts into their core subjects. In our writing lessons we have been learning the story ‘The Tiger Child’. We have been blown away by the vocabulary and structure that the children have used in their story writing. The children have also been working hard in Maths lessons using their amazing Oracy skills to prove addition and subtraction equations.
