It was lovely to meet so many parents and carers last night at our first Parents evening. We look forward to welcoming many others this evening.
This week we have been completing work on our whole class novel studies “Ottoline and the Yellow Cat” (P4C) and “The Legend of Spud Murphy” (P4D). After the October holidays your child will receive a book home with them and will be given pages to read each week. They will also complete written work in class related to what they have read.
On Monday we learned about Viking homes. The children explored what their homes would have looked like and the similarities and differences between Viking longhouses and our own homes. Some of the children weren’t sure if they would like to share their house with the farm animals! The children then began to create their own Viking homes from a “birds eye view”.
In ICT this week the children were using the programme “Textease” to create their own Viking posters. They learned how to change the size, look and colour of our text and the children enjoyed that they could place their text anywhere that they wanted on the page. We’re looking forward to completing the posters after the holidays.
Tomorrow is the last day of term before the October holidays. We look forward to seeing the children back at school on Tuesday 23rd October.
Have a lovely October break.
