Space & Christmas
This term we have been busy learning all about space. We have created stories, postcards and posters about the moon. We also designed and wrote about our own alien! Our reading has really improved this term as we are making great progress with our new Accelerated Reader scheme.
In our maths classes, we learnt about the different coins and notes we use. We had fun solving lots of different money word problems...I think we may have some future bankers on our hands! We have also been busy learning multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We need to keep practising these facts so we can speedily solve word problems.
What else happened this Term?
Wow! What a busy term. At the beginning of November, the whole school went on a trip to Chatham Dockyard. We investigated two different ships, learnt about the history of the dockyard and made our own skipping rope in The Ropery. It was a fantastic day.
We started celebrating Christmas by going to the Brook Theatre to see the pantomime, "Archie the Mouse." We followed this up by putting on a fantastic nativity service at church. Owl children sang beautifully, acted superbly and impressed everyone with their hard work. We particularly liked singing 'Silent Night' and holding our lit candle christingles. We were treated to an excellent (and really funny) nativity story by the Family Trust. We enjoyed listening to the story, laughing at the puppets, taking part in the game shows and singing a happy song. We really enjoyed creating Christmas decorations, especially as lots of our parents and carers came in to help.
Merry Christmas everyone!
