Words of the week – we are introducing our children to new vocabulary every week. These words will be sent home on a weekly basis. Please ask your child what they mean and encourage them to use them as often as possible when speaking.
Please encourage your child to read a few pages of their reading book every night. We love to read in our school and believe ‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’
That is the way the mind grows
Not with a test, but a tale…

Letters from Mrs Simons
We have been doing an Experiment in Science for our topic of Human Nutrition using eggs!!! What do you think we have been doing?
We haven’t been eating them!!!!
We used eggs to represent our tooth enamel and put them in different liquids for a week to see what would happen. We used:
Water, Vinegar, Cola, Milk and Orange Juice.
We left one egg with no liquid in to make it a fair test. Look at our Results below. Can you guess which egg was placed in each liquid?
Art – Soap Sculptures in the style of Barbara Hepworth
We have been inspired by Barbara Hepworth and her Sculptures. We used lots of skills to carve our own sculpture out of a block of soap! It was very tricky to do and we got through quite a few bars of soap. We realised if we carved it too deeply, our soap would break and we had to start all over again. We learnt lots of skills in this lesson including how to be patient and to take our time to produce our masterpiece!
Reading Plus Star of the month for October!
Well done to Jamie who was nominated by his teacher – Mrs Kenwright for Reading over 50,00 words in Reading Plus between September and October. He has won a £25 book voucher and a trophy from the Reading Plus Team. We are very proud of him and the Challenge is on with the other children trying to beat him! Watch this space!
Christingle making in Religious Education
We have made Christingles in class for our RE topic of Jesus being the light of the World! Did you know that the first Christingle was introduced in Germany in 1747. The first Christingle Service was held in the United Kingdom in 1968 to raise money for the Children’s Society. Christingle actually means Christ’s Light. We know the meaning of each part of the Christingle. Ask us and we will tell you!
Mince Pie making with Mr D from Classroom Kitchen!
We really enjoyed making a mince pie today with Mr D. We made our own pastry and they were really tasty! Some of us are keeping them in the freezer for Santa on Christmas Eve!
