Second Half of the Autumn Term
Welcome back, we hope that you all had a lovely half term holiday. Thanks to all of you who came to see us for parental consultations, if anyone couldn't make it and would still like a chance to see one of us, then please don't hesitate to ask.
To round up the highlights from last term, the children have settled in brilliantly to their new classroom routines. Well done to those coming in before 9am and cracking on with the early morning fluency tasks. The children have really enjoyed their Roman topic so far, and making their shields has been a lot of fun. They also had a great time on their trip to Nanquidno, where they were lucky enough to see lots of chough!
This half term, we will be continuing the Roman's theme for our topic work. We shall also be exploring in more detail our class book 'Kensuke's Kingdom'. Thanks to those of you who have desperately pleaded with us to read the book in their own time, but have understood when we said please can you wait and share it as a whole class! It just goes to show the power of Michael Morpurgo's writing! We also have some more exciting trips planned; a visit to the Kurt Jackson Gallery in St Just on the first week back and then the Eden project for an overnight stay on the 20th November! Finally we will be enjoying all the joy and excitement that the festive period brings about, the Christmas shows are always such a fun and confidence building experience.
