In science the children carried out an experiment to find out which materials were waterproof.

RE

During our RE lesson we explained that Christmas is a time when many Christians thank God that Jesus came to earth to show and tell people how to live. We thought about thankfulness in relation to the Christmas story and then we created a paper chain. We wrote what we are thankful for this Christmas.

Art

In ART, we looked at some different examples of how to create art out of collage. Then, children created some artistic collages of their own. They have thought very carefully about arranging their triangles.

RE

In RE, we read the parable of The Lost Son and discussed how the story showed the idea of God being loving and forgiving.

The children made special hidden meaning boxes. Outside, they showed the story of The Lost Son and inside, they wrote the meaning of the story.

PSHE

In PSHE, we talked about feelings. We discussed how we can recognise how others might be feeling by reading their body language or facial expressions.  The children were really good at playing feelings charades. The first child mimed a feeling, the second child identified it and the third child suggested a reason for this feeling.

Computing

The children have being learning about algorithms. They really enjoyed hunting for treasure during their computing session. During the task, one child took on the role of the robot-pirate. The other child (the programmer), read out their instructions to the robot-pirate who had to follow these exactly.

The children are getting really good at identifying their left and right hand with this hack. If they hold up their left hand, their thumb and index finger will make the shape of an ‘L’.

Role play

Children have enjoyed reading Farmer Duck as part of their English unit. They re-enacted the story and had lots of fun! They got themselves into role of the key characters, using good facial expressions.
