A very creative week in Hawthorn class this week. A particular highlight was making lanterns from willow, rushes and tissue paper - a huge thank you to Linda for showing us how to weave and tie the frames for these! They are looking great already and no doubt will be looking spectacular in time for the Christmas lantern parade.
We have also...
Today, we also made a Roman tortoise army formation since we have all finished our shields! See photos below of all the fun we had!
Well done everybody for cracking on with so much learning at an increasingly busy time of the year.
Have a great weekend!
The children of Hawthorn class have been very busy this week as follows...
A particular highlight for us this week has been playing rounders outside on the field - we are so lucky that the weather held for this and the class are getting so much better at working as a team to field effectively and stump more people out before they manage to make it around all the posts! Great progress everybody!
It was a very busy week in Hawthorn Class this week. For starters, the children learnt about Remembrance Day and the impact of war on different people all over the world. On Wednesday (Armistice Day) the class shared the 2 minutes of silence with the rest of the school with real reflection and maturity, with some children sharing the names of family members they wanted to remember especially.
In class, the children really wowed the adults with their independent research on volcanoes! The classroom looks fantastic with the posters they did for homework, and this has really fed into the their writing. We have been writing our own stories based on Michael Morphurgo's Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, with a particular focus on speech punctuation. I can't wait to read the finished stories!
Finally, a huge thank you to Hawthorn Class for such an upbeat end to the week, enjoying our non-uniform day for Children in Need and learning the song Feliz Navidad to gulp start getting us into the festive spirit!
