Chameleons have had an exciting and very busy half term.

We have been busy practising our phonics ready for the phonics screening check. We are proud of all the children’s’ efforts when practising reading alien words and real words. As part of our knights and castles topic, we have been using our geography skills to locate castles around the country and to plan a route to a local castle. In music we have composed our own hairy scary castle song and accompanied it with percussion instruments. This term in history children have been exploring life in a castle. They have learnt about the features of a medieval castles and the roles of the people living inside them.  We have also continued to be scientists carrying out experiments, exploring different materials and their properties. We have enjoyed our PE sessions with our Activ8 coach on a Monday, who has been teaching us some new skills. We have also taken part in another Activ8 PE competition, which was great fun!

 

Well done to all those children who continue to upload their weekly Maths and English work on Seesaw and also the creative pieces you have added as part of our topic. We have been busy rehearsing for our virtual Christmas concert, we hope you enjoy it! Look out for a message telling you when this will be available to watch.

 

 Term 2a

Next half term we will explore the enquiry question "How is where I live unique?". In Geography we will get to learn more about our local area and other places around the world.

In Science we will learn about materials and forces. In History we will compare old and new buildings. We will also learn about an important female aviator and her journey to Australia!


Reminders:

From January our PE day will be changing to a Friday - please come with outdoor PE kit on.

Christmas jumper day on the 11th December. 

Please can children’s reading diaries be updated and brought to school on Thursday for staff to check whether the child has read 3 or more times that week. 

A special thank you to all parents and carers for supporting the children and school by following the routines and rules.
