After the excitement of last week’s Nativity performance, we have tried hard to keep to the usual daily class routines!

In Maths, we have been very busy focussing our learning on the concept of time. The class have had lots of fun trying to complete various challenges against the clock, using both digital and sand timers. Activities included counting how many times the children could race their didi cars up and down the playground in a minute. Seeing how many times they could sing ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’, seeing how high they could build a tower in a minute and counting how many times they could write their name.

The children have engaged in a range of different activities focussing on the Nativity. They wrote their own versions, sequenced the story, role played using props and costumes from last week’s performance, made stables from various materials and even made the road to Bethlehem, complete with a tollgate!

The children also enjoyed watching their friends in KS1 perform their own version of the Nativity.


Children, please remember to practise your act, if you intend to audition for Pope Paul’s Got Talent on Monday!

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
