Great acting, speaking and singing. 

Well done Cherry Class

Autumn term workshops

Water workshop 

It was run by Engineers without borders ( Bristol University Outreach) and introduced children to the need for clean water around the world. They enjoyed making a simple water filter.

Medieval workshop

Jasmine came from The Medieval barn at Winterbourne to tell us about a medieval Christmas. She showed us the sort of food they would have eaten, we made masks for George and the dragon and we created Christmas wreaths.

Computing

Cherry class have been using Word on the computers to write their names using different sizes, fonts and colours.

Literacy

Our Literacy book this term is Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure by Kristina Stephenson.                             

The children have had great fun learning to retell the story with actions - ask them if they can tell it to you!

Mathematics

In maths we have been working on place value - knowing that in a 2 digit number the first number is a tens number and the second number is a ones number.                      We have been ordering and comparing numbers using more than > and less than <.      We have also been practicing counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and you will soon be able to join in at home with Rock Stars (logins will be sent home soon).
