Autumn Term 2020

The term is flying by and before we know it, it will be Christmas! In the meantime, we continue to focus on our learning and are grateful to remain in school as the nation locks down for a second time.
As a class we are loving reading our current class text: A Boy and a Bear in a Boat by Dave Shelton and have written some super poetry in response to the story so far. We also particularly loved designing sandwiches to satisfy the strange tastes of the bear!
Whilst we may not have managed to change the world with the letter we wrote to our local MP, we were very excited to receive a reply. 
In Science we have been thinking about how we will change as we grow older, as we learn about the human life cycle.
In Maths we have spent some time revising our previous learning to give ourselves a great foundation to build on. Year 6 have got to grips with long multiplication and division and are now getting their teeth into fractions. Year 5 are currently learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers and enjoyed the topic on statistics.
As the weather turns colder and often wetter we have moved our PE lessons into the beautifully redecorated Coronation Hall and are very excited to be learning street dance this half term. 
We have played some great team games in the forest on Friday afternoons with Mr Coyle and relish the opportunity to both demonstrate and witness in each other the fruits of the spirit which underpin everything we do.
