Week 1 Summer Term

The children have come back enthusiastic and eager to start the new term.  Thank you so much for the wonderful Easter Garden’s that were produced over the Easter break.  The children showed other members of the class their designs and interpretation of the Easter Story.

On Tuesday, we also had a fun filled day of celebrating Easter.  The children created Easter boxes using different techniques, incorporating religious messages and symbols linked to Easter within their designs.  The class then took part in an Easter Workshop in the hall led by volunteers from the parish.   After listening to the Resurrection story, the children  had the opportunity to re-live each part by completing some activities. These included decorating some crowns, washing each others’ feet, tasting some bread and grapes, using plasticine to create a face and finally reflecting on the Resurrection using a cross to help them to focus their thoughts and intentions.

The children enjoyed the Workshop very much and participated with reverence.

In Maths the children have continued the topic of division and on Thursday, in teams of three, worked hard to solve a Mathematical Puzzle that had been set  from Wroxham Primary School.  A problem set by our school was given to the Year 4 children at Wroxham to solve also!

I was very proud of their persistence in solving their problems as a team and trying to ensure that each member took turns.

In PE the children had a starter session on tennis skills in preparation for the first of their lessons in Tennis which will commence next Monday.  PE Kits should be in school by Monday at the latest.  Thank you.

Violin lessons will begin back again next Wednesday.
