Class Armstrong have certainly earned their Christmas break with all of their hard work over this half term. We kicked off Numeracy with exploring addition and subtraction number families. Children have used part-whole models as well as ten frames and cubes to solve number problems. In Literacy we have been learning about adjectives and produced our own poetry book on fireworks. We are now furthering our knowledge of The Victorians; writing facts about their toys and festive traditions.
In Physical Education they have been refining their movement skills to aid them in invasion games. We were lucky enough to have been invited to St Mary’s Church to look at how Christians worship and use the church. The children had an opportunity to have a go at lots of activities and listen to information about the church. Back in the classroom, we have also been using local maps to identify human and physical features. In our weekly Science lessons, the class have been learning the names of different materials why they are chosen for different purposes. More recently the children have worn odd socks to celebrate individuality and explore the issues surrounding bullying. We are now fast approaching our nativity show and are busy practising our song words and developing our acting skills. We are looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. Tickets are available from reception.
