Weekly Review: 21st January 2022

This week saw two new children join our classes and we are so lucky to have them.  We can now tell you that our school trip will be split between the 9th (1D) and 10th (1C) March. We will all be going to Kew Gardens where we will be completing a workshop all about ‘Amazing plants’ and if we are lucky will get to have a go in their fantastic playground.  We continued to learn about our different types of animals by taking a deep dive into the underwater kingdom, and learning all about fish. We continued to learn about our art and design skills in art by looking at a painting by Louis Wain and talking about the stories and events that we think are happening.  In Geography we looked at what life would be like to live next to the sea.  Our RE stories this week looked at tales from the Bible and the lessons that Christians have learnt about being kind and building your life on a foundation of respect, much like our School Values teach us.

English – We continued to read our story about the wild girl of the forest where she has now been taken in by two psychiatrists to study and teach her how to be a human.  She is missing her animal friends and her tree-bed.  I wonder what she will do next.  All our writing has continued to focus on our 6 star writing.  In our grammar lessons we also looked at nouns.  We now know that a noun is the name of a thing, such as an object, a place, or a person. Nouns are often described as naming words.

Maths – Our Maths lessons have started to look at numbers again and we have been looking at different ways to write and represent our equations.

IIn PSHE, we focused on looking after our skin and staying safe in the sun. Remember to slip on a hat, sunglasses and some clothes, slap on some sun cream, sip some water to stay cool and sit in the shade if you are getting too warm.

Vocabulary  - This week our vocabulary words were; unroll, flush, shampoo, brush and untangle. 

PE & Dance: Next week Music and Dance will start again, 1D with Dance on Tuesday and PE on Friday, while 1C has Music on Tuesday and PE on Wednesday so will need their kits then.   Children can come to school wearing their kits on PE and Dance days and will get changed as part of their lessons.

AOB: We will be looking for adults to support us on our trip.



  We hope you have a lovely weekend.
