Party time

At the end of last half term the children had earned a party for all their fantastic behaviour and good work.  They voted for a pyjama party.  Just take a look at how much fun we had.

Ordering objects from heaviest to lightest.

In maths this week we have been ordering objects from heaviest to lightest.  We felt the objects first then used the scales to check if we were right.

Baptism ceremony

We have been looking at the Christian ceremony of Baptism this week.  We held a number of baptisms around our "font" in which children took the different roles of Vicar, Godparents, Parents and guests.

Let me know if you have been to a christening and what you saw.

Shrove Tuesday

What fun we have had today.  We learnt about the traditions of Shrove Tuesday and how in the olden days pancakes were made to use up all the fresh ingredients that would not be eaten during the Christian season of Lent.  We had a pancake race and then had a pancake feast choosing syrup or chocolate as our toppings.

Repeating patterns

We have been using the dough to see if we could make a repeating pattern.  As we used the shape cutters we were also able to discuss the properties of the shapes we used. Repeating patterns on PhotoPeach

Safer Internet day

On Tuesday it was Safer Internet Day.

With lots of children in our class using the internet for gaming and messaging and also using mobile phones it was important to look at the some key messages to help the children keep safe.

We looked at Kim and Lee's adventure cartoon.  They meet a character called Superhero SID who helps children to keep safe on the internet.
