Before the holiday we had our class party in our classroom. Although it was a small party we had a great time dancing, playing games, and winning prizes. It was a fantastic way to bring in the holiday. We also had watched a lovely video organised by the church and Miss Thorpe. Below are some pictures from our party. I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the pupils and parents who wished me a happy birthday and a merry Christmas and thank you for all the lovely gifts you kindly gifted me.
This week we have been busy finishing off our writing linked to our topic work about WW1. We have written letters from the trenches, thinking about how soldiers might have felt. We explored different senses and used this to inform our writing. The pupils have done an amazing job producing these letters, they are now displayed in the classroom along with our posters all about the trenches. I am so proud of the work they produced and the effort that they put into it. Here are some of our fantastic work:
Our naughty elf has also been up to his old tricks this week; stealing the star from our Christmas tree, writing on our board, making a mess of our resources and putting Miss Notman and Mrs Corry on the naughty list.
It has been a very busy week full of Christmas activities. We have been taking part in a film study about the Nightmare Before Christmas, we have taken part in a Christmas quiz, snowman drive and created a Christmas menu using real life prices and working with different budgets. We also snuck in sometime to make some hot chocolate bottles to gift to our families (or keep for ourselves!) we also created some amazing Grinch inspired art work using oil pastels.
We also finished of our clay work, painting our trees and stars. We made these using clay and polymer clay. The trees are candle holders and the starts are tree decorations. These were quite tricky to make but a lot of fun.
Finally we are so grateful to the parent council, we received our present of table football and it is all built ready to play with. Miss Notman also used the money to buy some prizes and treats for the class. Thank you!
As December is upon us we are getting ready for the busy run up to Christmas. In class we have been joined by a very mischievous elf. He has been causing some trouble by putting straws in to our class cactus Collin and rearranging the numicon on the board. Hopefully he will stop being so mischievous and not make a mess of our class room....
We have been taking part in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities. This week we made reindeer fly and worked amazingly in teams to test how far our reindeer could fly. We also spelt out our names using binary code and had a competition to see who could make the longest paper chain from one sheet of paper.
To celebrate Sat Andres day the class tried our hand at some weaving using tartan material. This week we also created a stocking to hand in the school over December, we created among us characters to add to this display. All the children are currently obsessed with this game. I would encourage parents to ensure all children are being safe when using games online.
This week we have continued to learn about WW1. We have learnt about the countries involved in the war, why the war began and the trenches.
We have been doing some research to find more information about what life was like in the trenches to help us to write a letter from a soldiers point of view, which we will be writing in the next couple of weeks.
Some of the class where so enthusiastic about what they were learning they used their knowledge and creativeness to create a trench and dugout model in the woodland area. It was amazing to see everyone working together and communicating as a team.
During the week of remembrance we explored the reasons why this is an important day. We looked at how and why we remember all the soldiers who have caught and given up their lives to fight and protect our country. We created some poppy art to display on our classroom windows to show our appreciation. We learned the meaning and symbolism of the poppy.
as we enjoyed learning about the First World War we will continue to explore this topic further this term.
We also created some art work which will be used for the new school calendar, more information about this to follow.
