Thank you for all your continued support this term!
Both Miss Osborne and I are very proud of all the children, they've excelled in Maths, Writing and their reading this term.
In English over the past 2 weeks we have enjoyed creating our own 'Winter Dreams' poem, the children were able to retell their poem and use actions. They have also made their parents a snowflake with their poems written on (we hope you love them as much as the children do !)
The children wrote their own set of instructions about mummification! They watched their own teacher get mummified by Mrs Richards.
In Maths the children have been using their addition and subtraction knowledge to complete 2 step word problems.
In RE we have also learnt about the first Gospel of John, the children were able to summarise the key parts and created some wonderful art work to represent the light and darkness of their own lives.
To end the term on a high, the children also performed a fantastic and festive Eucharist! The children performed the Gospel, sang 3 carols and read their own sorry and thanks prayers. We are extremely proud of them all!
We wish you all a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
Mrs Patrick and Miss Osborne
Welcome to Azraq Class!
We have been working extremely hard since returning to school in September.
English- In our English learning this term, we have already written an amazing adventure story about Tadeo Jones, a diary entry about Harry Potter and Howard Carter and we're also planning on creating some amazing non-chronological reports.
Maths- we have been focused on the place value of 4 digit numbers and using these skills to solve a range of reasoning problems. We have also been using Maths Stems in our learning, we try and explain our answers by using these stems ' I know this because...' ' I can check my answer by..' This is the same because...'
In our RE learning we have learnt about the story of 'Creation and the Fall' and 'The Prodigal Son'. We have focused on accepting and understanding forgiveness. We have also remembered the 'ripple effect', this is where the children think about their actions and the impact this could have on other people.
Theme- in our Theme lessons we have been learning about' Ancient Egypt!' We have mummified oranges, created our own Gods/Goddesses, drawn our own messages using hieroglyphics and created our own canopic jars.
Science- In our Science lessons we have looked at the topic 'Living things and their habitats'. We were able to go out on a mini beast hunt and identify the different mini beasts that we found in our local area. We also had a visitor from a Park Ranger named Mr. Moat. He came into our school and informed us about all the different habitats we can find in Castle Park and how to protect them.
Our new science topic is 'States of Matter' we will be identifying the differences between solids, liquids and gases.
Music- We were very excited when we attended a drumming workshop in October and we all played the 'Djembe drum'. We have also been listening to a range of music and identifying the pitch, tempo and musical instruments used.
If you have any questions or anything you wish to discuss with me please don't hesitate to email me Amber.Patrick@dcvst.org
Thank you for your continued support,
