This week we have been learning about Remembrance Day.
We have been thinking about all of the soldiers who lost their lives during the war and added our prayers to the Remembrance tree.
We learned about why we wear poppies and created our own poppy pictures.
We also learned about the animals who helped during the war and wrote sentences to explain how they helped.
“The dog had a cross on him and he helped the poorly soldiers.” – Macie.
“The pigeon carried the messages.” – Daisy.
“The horses helped carry the food. They had to walk for miles and miles.” – Emily.
“The dogs could smell the enemies.” – Thomas.
“They used glow worms for a light.” – Eva.
We have been doing so well learning our Mission Statement.
We have talked about how we are all unique and thought about ways in which we can let our light shine every day.
We painted our own pictures of Our Lady, Mary…
We have really enjoyed learning all about autumn this week.
We have painted autumn trees, made our own autumn pictures, and found out lots of fun facts.
These are some of the amazing things we said happened in autumn:
“The animals get the nuts and hibernate.” – Jake.
“The leaves fall off the trees because they die.” – Erin.
“It gets colder because the earth is moving away from the sun.” – Emily.
“The leaves change colour.” – Alice J.
Today we ended our first half term at school by having lots of fun playing in the fallen leaves.
This week in our PSHE lessons we have been learning about friendship and talking about what makes a good friend.
“A good friend is kind.”
“They share their toys.”
“They don’t hurt people.”
“Play with everyone.”
We listened to the Rainbow Fish story and made friendship bracelets too.
A big well done to all of our amazing children in Reception class for completing their very first Fun Run.
Every single one of them completed 3 laps of our huge playground and crossed the finish line!
A huge thank you to all of our kind families for their generous sponsors too!
We use numbers and mathematical language all day long in Reception class – when we are playing, when sorting out the wellies and even when we’re building imaginary lands with the bricks.
We love to show off how clever we are at ordering and recognising numbers too!
We read a lovely story about pirate school on Thursday which made us all want to become pirates!
We worked as a fantastic team to build a huge pirate ship, eye patches, flags and hats.
We made a treasure island and had so much fun hunting for treasure!
We had such an exciting time this afternoon searching the skies for the NHS Spitfire.
We used our hands as binoculars to try and see the Spitfire as it flew over our school.
Everyone cheered and waved as it flew over our heads.
It was really noisy and very exciting!
