The children have been working really hard on creating a booklet about Pompeii. We have had some really good discussions in class about Pompeii and found out lots of facts. 3W would like to go on a school trip to Pompeii as they have been very enthused - this may be a little difficult to arrange so we will be planning something else instead. In Maths the children have been looking at measuring and converting lengths. We had some very good artists creating in the style of Andy Goldsworthy and we hope to put some pictures on the website soon.

The Autumn term has gone very fast. This term 3M completed their class assembly and all the children took part in the Christmas Play - Silent Night. Thank you to all the parents who helped out with costumes and learning words to songs / lines. All the children were amazing and it was good to see so many of you there. The children all enjoyed a Christmas Party during the last week and we were very fortunate to receive a visit from Father Christmas. We would like to thank you for all the lovely presents and we hope that you have a good Christmas and New Year. We will soon be back at the school for the Spring Term!

The children have spent time this week starting our new maths topic of multiplication. Children have started by drawing arrays and we will be going onto written methods. Both classes have been working on non-chronological reports and have written about their predators. We are editing these and will look at publishing them in the next few days. We will publish these next week on the website.

During the week the children have spent time researching predators. They are now writing reports about their predator. During Maths children have seen the connection between addition and subtraction and used this to solve problems. Thanks to all the interesting homework pictures that came in about predators.

I hope you all enjoyed your half term holiday which went so quick. The children are enjoying our new topic of Predators. We were very pleased with the 3M assembly and hope to put some photos/video on our website soon. The children all spoke to clearly and confidently as shared their knowledge of heroes.

Both 3M and 3W visited the Jesus Life Museum yesterday at the Evangelical Church in Broomfield Road as part of our RE learning this term based on Christianity.

Thank you to all the adults who volunteered and helped us.
Enjoy the half term holiday.
