The Christmas decorations were brought down from the school loft on Tuesday and suddenly Christmas seems just around the corner! The children have been decorating their classrooms and the rooms have been filled with the strains of Bing Crosby and George Michael once again. How time flies, even in the midst of a world pandemic! Mr Moore's recovery continues and I am hopeful that today will have seen a return to proper 'high hovers' in assembly - much as I have loved standing in for him, there is no real substitute for a Mr Moore assembly. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
The next two weeks look set to be cold and possibly snowy. Please make sure children have warm clothing in school, as necessary. Please also check they have warm PE kit as we will have a school cross country event on Dec 11th. Bikeability - starts Monday for Yr5 & some Yr6, so remember your bikes!
The Foxes have been very busy this week as usual - during their Erasmus activities they had lots of fun trying (and succeeding) to identify European countries from their outlines, coming up with great ways to remember them such as 'Owlful Tower' to remember France has the shape of an owl with wings outstretched! Narnia continues to dominate their English lessons and brings a wonderful, magical, wintery feel to the classroom.
Hedgehogs have been playing a skittles-like game from Finland for their Erasmus activity and have made delightful reindeer wrapping paper which has enchanted everyone who has seen it. There have been lots of reasons to be jolly this week and seeing the faces of our youngest class when outside learning and playing, is certainly one of them.
In English, our eldest pupils have been re-writing sentences to create more detailed imagery and in maths they have been reacquainting themselves with the properties of shapes. In other lessons they have been painting watercolour washes, looking at the 1861 census, improving hockey skills and making mazes through programming. On Monday and Tuesday pupils had lessons for our virtual Erasmus meeting, thinking of future classroom designs and researching how other Europeans celebrate Christmas. Emily was particularly excited to hear about marzipan pigs in Norway!
Despite obvious changes to our normal routines, pupils still have the following to look forward to in the coming two weeks:
Christmas decoration making
Annual Christmas hat competition
School Christmas lunch
Class Christmas performance
Class Christmas party with a 'special visitor'.
