This week Reception looked at counting. On Friday we used a graph to find out the classes favourite fruit. In Les Papillion Rouge the favourite was strawberry but Les Papillion Bleu chose apple and Les Papillion Vert picked bananas.
This week in Year 6 we are studying area and perimeter in maths. We have been working hard to prove our answers and explain our mathematical understanding using specific vocabulary.
Danger-Us club had a wonderful time baking this afternoon. We all worked hard to make the KS2 corridor smell wonderful, and have taken home armfuls of treats to share!
After reading the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, we tasted fruit from Kenyan and described using adjectives. We used four of our senses to help us describe. We tried banana, mango, passion fruit, oranges and kiwi!
Today we launched our new school topic ‘Our Place in the World’. Children across all the school have been finding out about the UN rights of the child, designing their own ideal city, exploring the history of famous Kings and Queens and having a go at Morris dancing!
This week we have enjoyed finding out about the children’s Christmas holidays. Les Papillons Verts were intrigued by this tarantula cast brought in by one of the children. They practised their art skills by looking closely and drawing what they could see. They enjoyed singing incy wincy spider and made spiders and water spouts in their busy time.
Year 5 have hit the ground running this week, throwing themselves into their new learning with fractions, decimals and percentages (in maths) and the Romans in Britain (in English). Swimming lessons have begun too, with nearly 40 of us taking the plunge today – and more lined up as soon as spaces become available. We are looking forward to our trip to Colchester Castle next week too- be sure to ask as about what we learn there!
Year 2 looked at what being a good friend was today. We discussed and acted out different scenarios and thought about whether they were friendly or unfriendly.
Year 3 enjoyed their theatre experience today. They laughed, cheered and booed throughout the Cinderella pantomime. We will compare the story of Cinderella with another narrative in the new year.
