Week 12

This week was National Tree so we looked closely at the trees in our playground. We drew the trees and the leaves. Then we did some bark rubbings. We identified that one was a Willow tree and one  was a silver maple tree.

In Maths we have been counting backwards and subtracting. We have been using number cards, 100 squares and number lines to help us. Please practise counting backwards at home.

In English we have been using our senses to write some poems. We have been describing objects using great adjectives!

On Wednesday the children were very respectful at the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. They sat quietly and sang beautifully, showing respect. After the children wrote some beautiful prayers to Jesus.

In Religion we have been learning about the story the Visitation. The children acted out the story and made Mary and Elizabeth using different materials.

In History the children have been learning about old toys and comparing them with toys today. If you have any toys belonging to the children’s parents or grandparents, please send them in for our class display.

The children are doing well learning their songs and dances for our Christmas Play. Please send in their costumes by Wednesday 5th December.

Home Learning – Practise singing the Christmas songs.

Have a lovely weekend
