WELL DONE MR BOWER!
This week we have been thinking about what sometimes worries them and reading the book Silly Billy by Anthony Browne. The children have been talking about their worries and even making their own worry dolls to take home.
In Maths, we have been looking at ordinal numbers and trying to remember first, second, third etc. We worked together with our friends to put people in the correct order when waiting at a bus stop.
We also made our Cauliflower Cards. They were sent home in the Reading Folders on Wednesday. If you would like to purchase an order of them, please do return them as soon as possible. These must be returned by Wednesday 14th October next week.
Next week, our focus will be ‘Animals around the World’. We will be looking at different habitats and matching the animals to their environment. For Show and Tell, we’d like each child to bring one animal and be able to tell the class one fact about the animal, e.g. its habitat. We will be learning about our artist of the term, Matisse, and recreating his famous snail, as well as looking at the book The Journey Home by Frann Preston Gannon.
With best wishes,

Year 2 know how to keep safe when using the internet and other devices!
The children watched Kim and Lee’s adventure with interest:
All the children in Year 2 decided on rules they think are important when using the internet, agreed to the class rules and signed the pledge.
The children had fun making masks and acting out different characters from the story.
In 5NA's Jigsaw (PSHE) lessons this term, the children have been thinking about different members of society. They have learnt lots about Refugees, Migrants and Asylum Seekers and some of the International laws and rules relating to these different groups. This week, Miss Francis gave 5NA a bag of random items including a tape measure, a ball, plastic frogs, a book, a dice, some house points, a maraca, etc. Their task was to work together as a group to make up a class game involving as many of the objects as possible. They quickly realised that for a game to work, they needed clear rules. We compared this to society and decided that rules are there to keep us safe. Rules are needed to help make the world a more harmonious place and to help us all live a more civilised life. Well done 5NA!
Bones 4 U
In Year 6 we have been combining D&T and Science to make models of our hands. The straws represent the bones, and the cotton represents the muscles, and the model shows how the muscles work to move the bones when we use our fingers.
