Wow, what an amazing amount of work I have had sent to me this week!
It's great to see so many of you trying different activities and having fun.
When we went for our daily walks this week we saw lots of baby birds on the pond. Can you remember from your science work what a baby duck is called?
Have a lovely weekend ( I will be celebrating something special on Saturday, I wonder what that could be?!) and I look forward to looking at your wonderful work next week.
Lots of love Mrs Bailey

What a busy week it has been this week! I have loved speaking to you and hearing about your work. In particular, I enjoyed hearing about how you were going to celebrate VE Day. We had a picnic with some yummy VE cupcakes and then did a quiz about VE day. At 9 o'clock we watched the Queen and tried to join in with singing " We'll meet again".
Keep sending me pictures so I can add them in.

George's Marvellous Sandwiches
This week we have been having fun following instructions and learning how to make a healthy sandwich We really enjoyed tasting them too!
We then wrote our own recipes for a sandwich to give George's dad enough energy to look after all the animals.
This week we have been learning about different countries around the world, and what makes them special. We thought about the similarities and differences between the countries and where we live. We talked about how we are all children of God, no matter where we live.
On Friday, we learnt about Chinese New Year- watching the dragon dance and then making our own dragons.
We also had some resident experts to teach us some of their home language!
We had lots of fun again on Outdoor Day.
The children were asked to make bug hotels, thinking about where would be the best place for it to go, and also thinking about what the 'residents' would need to keep them safe.
Mr Duffey came along to help us and taught us all how to use a saw safely. We thought that was great!
Oh, and course there was lots of mud!!!

'Thank You' Mass 13.11.19
A big thank you to all the family members who came to our class Mass this week. It was lovely to see so many of you come to help us celebrate this special occasion. The children were respectful and reverent all the way through and all did their jobs beautifully. Let's hope we all remember the very important message we were given- the importance of saying "Thank you"!
Take a look at our amazing Half term homework!
The children have really enjoyed learning about The Great Fire of London and have completed some amazing homework projects over the Half Term holiday. Thank you to parents for your continued support, and thank you children for your hard work and enthusiasm. Every child that took part will get a little treat from Mrs B
Outdoor Learning Day
We all had an amazing day today, despite the horrendous weather! It was so lovely to see the children having great fun running and splashing in the rain, but also thinking about habitats animals might live in. This was linked to our Science topic of materials and we tested different materials as to how waterproof they were. We also went on a 5 senses Treasure Hunt, looking and feeling for different properties such as smooth, rough, hard, soft, flexible and whether or not they would be appropriate building materials. This afternoon, we searched for signs of animals within our school grounds and we were thrilled to see the den hidden deep in the trees.
We rounded off our day by creating prayer spinners, thanking God for all the wonderful things He has created for us, especially the rain to help the plants and flowers grow. We are looking forward to our next outdoor adventure.
