This week the children have started their new English unit on persuasion and our new book, Leon and the Place Between. The book is about a boy called Leon who volunteers to be in Abdul Kazam’s magic show and gets transported to a mysterious world filled with rabbits, doves, playing cards and magician’s assistants. The children have designed a poster to advertise the circus and persuade people to see the amazing acts.
In RE we have continued to examine the Beatitudes with a focus on mercy.
In Art the children studied the poem, the Highway Man and produced these wonderful collages below:
Have a lovely weekend.
Homework this week:
Your child has come home with a count sheet as we are taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend. The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch is the world’s biggest bird survey and regularly attracts nearly half a million participants. The records from people counting birds in their gardens provides a vital snapshot of the UK’s birds each winter and we would like to be part of this. I look forward to seeing the data that each child has recorded.
Geography work: Water Usage
The children are asked to fill in a table with a tally chart on how much water is used per activity over a given time at home: Saturday – Sunday. They are asked to bring their completed sheet into school on Monday.
