What we've been doing in class
We've been trying to have lots of fun this week to celebrate Christmas. We had our Christmas party, Christmas Jumper Day, our Christmas Nativity recording, Christmas film afternoon, Christmas dinner and Christmas music! That's a lot of Christmas and it has put a big smile on all of our faces. We also had a class elf, called Elphick, who has been with us this half term who has been up to all kinds of mischief but has also done some nice things for us too. He brought us a tree and decorations from the North Pole, completed some of our work but also left us a leaving gift. Have a look at some of what we have been up to below... keep an eye out for that pesky elf!
We've been having lots of Christmas fun in class. We've been making decorations to make our classroom look more festive, creating cards and even having fun making Christmas shapes in maths!
This week was national Anti-Bullying Week and so we have been doing some activities about how we can put an end to bullying. The children decided to each write a pledge of something that they can do to help stop bullying. They wrote their statement on a section of a jigsaw puzzle then we assembled it to show that if we are united we can help end bullying and realised that we are stronger together.
This week we remembered those who gave their lives for our today. We made poppy crosses and planted them in our memorial at the front of school. We held a silence in honour of the fallen as our teacher, Miss Lea, played The Last Post.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Laurence Binyon, 1914
Our topic this term is 'Ourselves'. We have learnt about and labelled parts of the body, our senses and how we use them. Here are our amazing self portraits on display.
This week we were lucky enough to have our first bubble assembly of the year with the vicar. We were learning about the significance of a mandala. A mandala is something that is created with beautiful colours, pictures and patterns that have a very special meaning to their creator. We have spent some time designing our own mandalas which we will add to our class RE display, showing all of the things that are important to us. Can you spot yours?
