We said it would be a busy week in Yew Class and we weren't joking... Notably, the children sat a range of maths and reading assessments so that we can see what the next step for their learning should be. They tackled these immensely well and should feel very proud of themselves.
However, this has also been a very active and curious week - we have started our topic on the history of London, learning how it was founded by the Romans and exploring what parts of Roman London are still evident today. We also began singing in French, learning the months of the year! Soon the children will have a go at writing these months too, to compare French and English writing. And I feel we must mention the very exciting P.E lesson with Beech Class, testing out everyone's agility and speed by playing banana tag!
Yesterday, we managed to venture outside to hunt for organisms (living things) within our school's woodland habitat - the class did very well to spot plenty in the murky, drizzly weather. This will hopefully inspire some of our artwork this half term as we develop some ideas for our own collages in the style of Henri Matisse. Thanks for remembering your wellies! Please bring them again next Thursday as we will be out and about, investigating microhabitats in more depth.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
