We’ve had quite the festive week. In RE, the children learnt about Advent and the relevance of items within a church. On Tuesday, we made Christmas cards for STFC – they will deliver them to people in the Community that would appreciate a little Christmas cheer. We learnt our Christmas song – ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ by Shakin’ Stevens – we film it next week to share with the other classes as part of our Festive Friday fun.
The children learnt how to multiply and divide fractions – their understanding is now impressive and we are almost ready to move onto the next topic. In Literacy, we continued our Highwayman topic – the children created a new verse to the poem, a diary entry from the perspective of Bess, they then wrote a newspaper article from the time and we finished the week creating a script to act out next week.
It is Assessment Week next week where the children will complete tests to ascertain their current levels. Everyone has made progress this term and I am looking forward to seeing a development in their skills. We will complete a maths paper, a reading paper, a Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Paper and the children will carry out new sociograms. They have already conducted a new Accelerated Reader test and new reading ages and ZPD Bandings will follow soon. I’ll tell your child how they got on so please ensure they feedback to you.
Have a great weekend, hopefully we will see a little sun. The later part of this week has been cold and a little wet!
