St Bernadette Week 6
It has been so lovely to be back with the children this week and we certainly have been very busy. We started the week with a lovely awards assembly, congratulations to Mia and Thomas for your hard work in RE and maths.
In English, we have continued working on our phonics, reading, writing and spelling during our RWI sessions. Reading books have been sent home today and Bug club books will also be updated. They are paper copies of the book your child has been reading at school so please do not throw them away as they must be returned to school to be changed on a Friday. They need to be read several times during the week to improve fluency and comprehension. Please send in your child’s book bag if you haven’t already done so. New book bags can be purchased from the school office.
In maths, we have done some work on counting in tens forwards and backwards from any number and the children have completed some maths assessments ready to begin our next unit of maths, addition and subtraction.
In RE, the children heard the story of Daniel in the lion’s den. They role played the story and wrote about it.
During our PE lesson today, we completed our sponsored walk. All children managed between 10-12 laps of the field in 30 minutes so a very big well done. Please send in any sponsorship money next week.
Our virtues and values assembly today saw Sofia, Thomas and Annabelle receive certificates for being curious and active this week. Well done children.
We also had a visitor in school this week to teach us even more about the Great Fire of London. He was very impressed with how much the children already knew. The events of the fire were really brought to life for the children when they got to act in role as residents of Pudding Lane. They also pretended they were flames spreading between the houses, they fetched buckets of water and listened to the events of the fire from the perspective of Samuel Pepys and William Porter, a resident from Pudding Lane. I was so proud of the children and how well they listened and participated.
