Miss Barlow's Words Autumn Term Week 10
It seems Christmas has crept in early here at Claires Court what with the Christmas Production drawing ever closer, plus we now have Santa Cams in Lower Juniors so it’s best behaviour all round! As well as rehearsing for the Christmas productions next week and with Santa’s eyes on them, Reception have been learning about the Claires Court Essentials (collaboration, communication and risk taking) and introducing the Winnie the Pooh characters which link to each Essential.
Year 1 have continued to learn about Maidenhead as part of their Marvellous Me topic. They visited the Sounding Arch on Tuesday to not only further their knowledge of the town but also to learn more about sounds and echoes.
In Year 2, the girls have been focusing on their non-fiction writing about the Great Fire of London. The “Stone Shop” is now open in Year 3 and the girls have been using their problems solving skills to buy Stone Age artefacts from the shop! As part of their Never Stop Exploring Topic, Year 4 have been creating and describing characters for their adventure stories and have started to create their Never Never Lands. I am very excited to see what they create. In Year 5 the girls have been introduced to adding fractions with the same and different denominators.
The Year 6 class have been completing a lot of work following their interesting, if a little hot, trip to the Living Rainforest.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
