Summer 1 Week 6

This week we have been focusing on London. We read a book called Miles in London who visited many places. The children learnt about the different landmarks in London and wrote about where they would like to visit. They made postcards about a trip to London, letters to King Charles and drew maps of the different places to visit in London. The children made Big Ben, the London Aquarium, the Natural History Museum  from boxes.

Outside, the children have been acting as teachers. They have been teaching phonics, taking the register and writing comments about good behaviour. The children have been very good teachers! Then they had fun in the puddles, making bubbles.

In Religion, the children learnt about Pentecost. They acted out the story in groups, they made fire using blow painting to represent the fire and made kites to represent the wind. The children made birthday cards and birthday cakes to celebrate the birthday of the church. Some children retold the story in a story map.

On Tuesday afternoon, the children took part in different prayer stations led by the Year 6 children. The children were wonderful throughout.

In Maths, the children have continued learning about 2D shapes. They made pictures out of different 2D shapes. Then we learnt about 3D shapes and the children learn the names of cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid and sphere. They identified everyday objects that are 3D shapes.

It was lovely to see some of you at The International Evening. Thank you for donating lovely food.

In Ten Ten, we learnt about what to do in an emergency and the people who can help us. We talked about when we need to call 999. Please practise the children’s address with them (door number and road) so they know if they have to make a call to 999.

On Friday, the children celebrated their first Mass with the school. I was proud of how well they sat and joined in with the prayers and singing.

I have attached a copy of the children’s house colours. They will need the t-shirt for Sports Day and for Year 1 PE.  Reception House Groups

Have a wonderful half term!
