On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.
We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.
The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.
And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.
We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.
With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
In science we were pretending to be chicks and parent birds collecting worms. We found that the brighter ones were easier to find. There are also predators that animals need to hide from. (Lily and Rares)
We started to plan the middle of our magical land story in writing. ( Callie)
This week we have also started to practise our Christmas Play. (Alfie) We are keeping it a secret until the big day (13th December). We also wrote our invitations to parents and these should come home today.
Today we discussed our learning this week and here are a few things that we would like to share.
In science we put animals in their habitats and talked about how these habitats were good for them. Tayler
We used different materials to create some fairies for our Enchanted Wood. Some bits were tricky but we did it and they look great! Lacey
In writing we have started to invent our own land by drawing a picture of it. Alfie.
In maths, we made a fairy door for Silky because some Goblins broke her door. We had to use a ruler to measure the length of different parts of the door and then decorate the door. Robert
We started learning about kg and g. We had to help Miss Heatherill with her shopping bag by making sure heavy items were at the bottom and lighter items were at the top. We know that there are 1000g in a kg. Kayla
In Health and Wellbeing we have been looking at friendship we spoke about what makes a good friend. We also did a lesson with an apple. We said nice things to one and not so nice things to the other. We learned that if we say nice things it makes people happy and if we don’t nice things, people hurt inside.
P3b have been discussing all of the things we have learned this week.
We have now completed our background artwork using oil pastels and a green wash for the woodland and have now started to make our display. Tayler
In science we have learned about the sorting different types of animals and now feel more confident at this. We’ve also sorted leaves into different piles and worked out which tree they came from. We know that their are simple and compound leaves. We enjoyed going out into the garden to search for different leaves.(Callie and Steffan)
I writing we drew a picture thinking about what Roundabout Land looks like. We used our senses to describe the setting of this land and next week we hope to use this to write our own setting of Roundabout land. (Tayler and Robert)
In maths we have been learning about area and converting cm into mm. Some of us now know how to do this all by ourselves.
Some of us have also shared our learning with the rest of the school at today’s assembly. Well done!
As you can see lots of learning has taken place this week.
This term we are visiting the Faraway Tree and all the magical adventures that Beth, Jo and Frannie have in the Enchanted Wood. Here is what we have learned so far:
“We have been learning about the Faraway in the Enchanted Wood” Honor
“We had a letter from the Head Elf to ask us to write an email about why we would make a good Enchanted Wood Explorer . We also said that we wanted to join in with his magical adventures and I would love to meet Silky.” Callie
“Last week we explored our woodland area and we had to use our four senses to describe this. This week we used this to draw and coloured in a picture of what we thought the Enchanted Wood Looked like. Then we described the setting using some of the information that we found. ” Brooke
“We have learned about different categories of animal – mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, invertebrates and vertebrates and are beginning to classify animals into these.”
“In maths we have been using rulers and meter sticks to measure the length of different objects or lines.” Tayler S
We are looking forward to next week’s learning in the Enchanted Wood!
