Woodlands Afternoon Websites
We started off topic off by closely observing a range of minerals and rocks. We linked this with out Literacy work as we have been using adjectives in both subjects!
It threatened rain but managed to hold off until we had finished! We took part in 6 different activities with 3 minutes on each before recording our best score and moving on. When we went round the circuit for a second time, we aimed to beat our scores which lots of us were able to do. Great fun (and lots of exercise and practising of skills!).
This afternoon, we had our first taster of archery. The year fours were fantastic at teaching the year threes what to do. The year fours have really stepped up to the challenge of being mentors for the younger children.
Meet the Teacher!
I look forward to seeing as many parents as possible at our morning meeting on Tuesday in the classroom. I will go through all the class routines and expectations during this session as well as answer any questions you may have.
Welcome to Our New School Year!
If you are already looking here in August, I love your keenness!
I forgot to hand out the letter to the new Holly Class about ROMAN COSTUMES. For the whole of the Autumn term, your child will need a Roman costume to wear every Thursday afternoon as we immerse ourselves in the world of Roman Britain. Each child will be given a genuine Roman name that they will be known by on Thursday afternoons, someone who they will be able to find out about.
By doing such activities, children can make memories that will last a life time and this will help them to remember what they have learnt and link it to future learning too.

**PLEASE REMEMBER: children need to be able to put their own costume on unaided, something to keep in mind if you are thinking about making a toga!
Also, the children in Year 5 (and some of year 6) covered this topic with me 2 years ago so if you know any of the parents, you could ask to borrow the costume their child used.
