This week, we started off with Grandparents Day and the school was buzzing with proud children excited that their grandparents were in their school!
The children had their weekly tennis lesson and have continued making their poppies for the carnival on Sunday 10th June. They have made their stencils for their t-shirts which they will be using in their t-shirt workshop when they return to school after the half-term. In English we have continued to learn about the characters in The Runaways and in Maths the children have worked REALLY hard on developing their understanding of division. We even had assistance from some of the Year 6 boys which was a delight to watch! Their interaction with the children meant that they could share their understanding of this difficult concept.
As it has been Spirituality Week, the children have spent time thinking about the importance of their family and God’s love for them. The children met with their Year 2 prayer partners and received special prayers that the children had written for them. On Thursday, with the help of the Year 6 children, the class took part in various prayer stations which they enjoyed: ‘God’s Words’, the ‘Bubble Station’, ‘God’s Creation’ etc..were some of the stations they visited.
On Friday, following the Year 6’s assembly on The Family, we had an act of worship in the classroom in which some of our parents came and participated in. Our focus was to create a class book that contains all the children’s family prayers written in the morning. It was a lovely ending to an uplifting week.
Have a lovely half-term.

Homework for the half-term is for the children to design the cover for the Summer Fayre. Happy drawing!
