The children have returned to school this week well rested and ready to learn. Our topic this week has been all about Divali, which is next Wednesday 7th November. The children have made lovely tealight holders using clay with Mrs Mahoney and they have decorated them beautifully. We have also made rangoli patterns, mehndi patterns and fireworks out of chalk on black card. They look very effective! In PE the children have been making their own fireworks displays using different movements which we had practised together, including jumping, hopping, running and turning around. We added some colourful dancing sticks and pompoms to make our fireworks come to life!

In RWI this week we have learned:
f - Around the flower, around the stem and don’t forget the leaf.
e - Lift off the top and scoop out the egg.
l - Down the long leg.
h - Down the head to the hooves and over his back.

In maths this week we have focused on the number 5. Next week we will recap numbers 1-5, in particular we will be looking at our number formation. If you get chance to practice over the weekend with your whiteboard pens that would be fantastic.

On Thursday we went to church for All Saints Day. The children sat with their Year 5 buddies and we were all so impressed with their listening skills. We thought about our visit to church in the afternoon and enjoyed colouring pictures of just some of the Saints who we were thinking about in particular on Thursday.

Next week our topic is Owl Babies which will span over two weeks. If you happen to go out walking anywhere and find any woodland objects such as twigs, sticks, acorns, pebbles, leaves that you would like to bring into school for us to add to our collection that would be lovely.

Can I please remind you that on PE days children are to only wear trainers with shoe laces if they can tie them.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
