The Fox class has been buzzing this week with the excitement of production fever. The playground has become their stage as many of the cast started to learn their parts this week. They have even made suggestive adaptations which just proves how committed they are to its success. The corridors have echoed sounds of singing practice, for not only the play, but the upcoming carols on Horning’s Green for the lighting of the ‘C’ tree.
The children have managed to squeeze all this in between their normal learning week in which they have continued to work on their non chronological reports. We have focused our attention on the important task of note taking and how to turn these into sentences and then paragraphs. This is not an easy feat but there has been some fantastic writing to celebrate.
In topic, we have researched the effects of Operation Sea Lion and how this changed the cause of the war.
Maths has delved into the many different strategies we can use depending on the calculation presented to us. The children have focused on what they notice about a question. This has led to fantastic discussions around the possible ways to solve them.
There were lots of teddy bears and cuddly toys who joined the class on Friday for our Children in Need day. They were dressed in costumes designed by the children and these all linked with our Battle of Britain theme. There were pilots, evacuees and home guards to name a few. What a packed week it has been!
