Autumn 1, Week 5

This week has been action packed. We started the week with a skipping workshop, where we learnt difficult individual and paired skipping techniques. The playground has been full of ropes this week – don’t forget to bring your ropes in next week.

Later in the week we were visited by a reptile roadshow, where we met and learnt about different snakes, lizards and bearded dragons. This really brought our class book, Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor to life. Did you know that reptiles smell with their tongues and that snakes have hundreds of ribs!?

In science this week we have been testing the permeability of rocks. The children made careful observations and recorded their findings.

Your RE home learning was wonderful, well done. I have enjoyed learning which Bible stories are the children’s favourites. We have started to learn about Psalms this week.

Home learning:
