This term the timetable has changed slightly and PE is now at the beginning of the week. Mrs Allender is now covering Science on a Tuesday afternoon and violins is still happening on a Friday.
This week we have been creating animations in Computing. The children created a short animation using Espresso Coding, which included creating a countdown timer that launched a rocket.
They really enjoyed the lesson and are looking forward to next week.

We have had a lovely first week back, Mrs Spencer and Miss Samuel have really enjoyed getting to know the children and the children are starting to know who is teaching when!
Just a reminder that PE is on a Thursday every week this term and PE kits should stay in school. Long hair must be tied back and earrings removed or covered (we have tape in school if necessary).

In Literacy this week, the children have been developing their speaking and listening skills through learning and performing several poems. They have also used instruments to furhter develop and enhance their performances. In Maths the children have been learning about the different types of lines including parallel lines and perpendicular lines. They have also been identifying right angles within shapes.
The children really enjoyed coming to school on Thursday in their pyjamas and bring their favourite book, teddy and pillow for World Book Day. They were able to talk about why they liked their book and could recap what their story was about. In English the children have been writing their own version of a play script and then having a go at performing it to the rest of class.
We have had a very busy week in Chestnut Class with the children helping to create our new Under the Sea book corner. They have also enjoyed using their own creative writing skills to write an adventure story based on Dragon independently.
Our Prefects for this term are - Kali, Ava and Tom,
To finish our work on the Stone Age topic, the children have enjoyed using their D.T skills to design and create amazing Stone Age homes. Here are some examples of these wonderful homes.
A wonderful day was had by all on our trip to Avebury. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about the Avebury Stones and Henge and further information about what life was like in the Stone Age Times.
