A Strange Way to start the Term!

Date: 25th Jan 2022 @ 4:08pm

Since returning in January Class 2 have had, as you know,  to weather the storm of a Covid outbreak!  As ever the children have shown great resilience and good spirits in getting on with things!  And so it has meant that although on some occasions we have had over half the class working at home, we have still been able to make excellent progress.  Ask the children and I am sure they would tell you all about the baby photos you have been sending in to help with our human growth work in Science.  Thank you so much, especially those of you who did so without the children knowing!  We had some lovely faces of surprise!

Another highlight has been the work the children have been doing on their Roman shields!  Check out the gallery from today's training session where the children learnt how to form a Testudo!  This classic Roman defensive formation was named after a tortoise and I am very pleased to report that even an attack from a Celt with a tennis ball could not get through their defensive shells!

In PE we have started our journey to be sharp shooters in archery.  Mrs McBride has overseen some amazing aiming and the children are enjoying racking up the points!

We spent the first couple of weeks in Maths looking at money and some of the children got to grasps with the concept of pounds and pence very quickly!  It was surprising how little cash children see nowadays - even pocket money can come on a card! We have now moved on to multiplication and division and it is clear who has been learning their times tables as they are now coming in very handy!

In English, we have been looking at 'Escape from Pompeii' as the basis of our writing.  You can listen to an audio version of the book here:

There is still lots to do as we move into the warmer spring weather, but I am sure that the children, as ever will rise to the challenge!
