Christmas RE lesson

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!

The Willow Pattern Story

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:

Curriculum Enrichment Days in Fir

We studied Kenya and really enjoyed learning all about this beautiful country. We learnt where it is in relation to the UK and about the different languages, food, ways of life and weather. At the end of the two days we created different mixed media pictures of the various landscapes. Take a look at some of our Savannah sunset pictures:

Fir Class are superheroes!

What an busy first few weeks Fir class have had! We have been learning about place value in Maths, we have started our new topic in history ‘the great fire of London’ and in English we have been studying the poem ‘My Mother is a Superhero’ by Pie Corbett. We even had a go at writing our own superhero poems!
