Fir class have embraced their new computing topic of ‘making movies’ really enthusiastically! We have made props and have begun to take photos and videos ready to edit and voice over using the iMovie software. We have some budding directors in our class!
Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.
We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
KS1 were wowed by the panto this afternoon. Oh yes we were!
In Fir class we have been busy designing and making puppets as part of our D T work. Each puppet is unique and special. We think they look wonderful on display in our classroom!
We are learning about naming ceremonies and Maryam came in to talk to us about Muslim ceremonies, particularly naming ceremonies. We learnt the newborns are welcomed into the world by Muslims whispering the words of Adhan into the right ear of the baby.
On Thursday Fir Class had a visitor. Mrs Bastable from the Watford schools Trust came to talk to us about the Christmas story. It was a really interactive lesson, the children had puppets, puzzles and had to make sound effects to help them retell the Christmas story. We’re feeling festive ready for the Christmas Fair on Sunday!
Why not borrow this book from the library this weekend… The children have loved reading it and writing character descriptions and retells of it this week. We will be writing our own alternative endings for it next week in English, I can’t wait to read them!
Ask your children to explain the story depicted on the willow pattern plate:
On Thursday Fir class enjoyed the assembly about emotions and how to deal with different feelings. The children were very eager to talk about what they had learnt on their return to the classroom. This is in good preparation for our anti-bullying day next Friday.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
