Alex and Isabelle want to show everyone what the saw whilst out for a walk after lunch today! They saw a frog! They were so excited but remembered not to touch!! They had gone out puddle jumping and came across him in the street!
Yesterday, during maths, we first estimated objects in the classroom and then measured with a CM ruler. We then recorded our measurements in our book and interpreted our answers to compare our measurements.
Wow, what a magical day!! Reception had SO much fun during our Christmas outdoor morning. We went to see Santa, visited the Elf’s workshop and went on a Christmas trail. So much Christmas fun!! 🎄⭐️❄️🎅🏽
A feel-good festive movie was just the ticket for Year 3 after enjoying their Christmas dinner. Santa’s Little Helpers, aka Mrs Smith, Henry, Mrs Pennock, Mrs Wright and Mr Williams showed Deliveroo how it’s done by delivering tasty popcorn and warm hot chocolate (and marshmallows) right on time! There were no complaints from Year 3 who munched, drank, laughed and danced their way through the afternoon.
Eleanors elf, Buddy, came back today. I wonder what things he’ll get up to this year??
As part of our learning “How do Christians prepare for Christmas?“ some children in Year 2 created their own advent wreath in RE. As a class we discussed the significance of an advent wreath and what each candle represented. Miss McKeown and Mrs Pennock were impressed with how independent and creative the children were as well as the discussions that children were having in class.
On Monday 23rd November Year 6 enjoyed a lovely afternoon exploring colour theory. We learned about the colour wheel and discussed how we could mix primary colours to form secondary colours. We even went a step further and had a go at mixing tertiary colours!
Our Stone Age learning took us outdoors last week, investigating prehistoric art materials and techniques. Like the early humans, we searched for natural materials and mixed them with water to make paint. After evaluating the best ones, we set off to create a large scale cave painting that included woolly mammoths, deer and some Stone Age symbols.
On Friday 6th November year 2 practiced logging on to Oxford Reading Owls. During guided reading we read with our partner. We enjoyed reading about the Gingerbread Man, Granny and the scarf! We are excited about reading at home!
I hope you are all well.
Here is the staffing structure for next academic year.
