Reverse Advent Calendar 2020

This year I would like to think about others during advent through a reverse advent calendar. I will give each child a number and ask them to bring in one item for the food bank if they are able to. I have attached a copy of the calendar which has an idea of what to bring for their number. All the items together will create a hamper for a family who are in need.

We will also have a class advent calendar.

Many thanks for your support.

November 2020

After a week of home learning and half term we really enjoyed a day outside making hedgehog houses, creating clay hedgehogs, making fitness trails and toasting marshmallows!

 

    

                      

 

October 2020

This year has been a little different but we have really enjoyed getting back to school and seeing all our friends again. This term we have made sure that we have spent lots of time talking about our feelings and emotions. We created pictures to reflect on life during lockdown!

We have been looking at the Oliver Jeffers book ‘Here We Are’ and talking about the world around us and how precious it is. This has linked well to our science topic on evolution and inheritance.

In English we have been reading ‘Wonder’ by R. J. Palacio which has linked well with the Fruits of the Spirit of kindness and patience which we have been focussing on in R.E. lessons this term. In writing lessons we have enjoyed following Jane Considine live lessons and have created our own stories based on the short animation ‘Feast’


In maths we have been revisiting some of the year 5 objectives in place value, addition, subtraction and multiplication and moving onto the year 6 objectives.

Of course due to Covid, we are unable to sing in music lessons but we are enjoying signing to the song ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams and learning to play parts on the Glockenspiels.

In P.E. lessons we are trying to get outside as much as we can! We have enjoyed developing our physical skills and playing some socially distanced games. In Outdoor Education we have enjoyed using wool and twigs to be creative.

In computing we have been learning about internet safety and looking at a number of different topics (Share with care, don’t fall for fake, secure your secrets, it’s cool to be kind and when in doubt talk it out) using Google’s ‘Be Internet Awesome’
In art we have been developing our painting skills and learning about colour mixing, primary, secondary, tertiary and complementary colours. We have talked about tones and shades and created a class picture of Nelson Mandela which linked to our assemblies for Black History Month during October.


At the end of October we all spent a week working from home. We worked so hard with the lessons that were uploaded to Seesaw:
