Autumn

Welcome back! 

 

This term, our topic is 'The Rainforest' and we will be using 'The Jungle Book' to help us with our learning. We are looking forward to exploring the jungle and learning all about the amazing creatures and plants that live there. 

Key Information

 

PE days - Thursday (outdoors) and Friday (indoors) - please make sure that your child has the appropriate PE in school all the time as theses times may vary depending on weekly events. 

 

Homework - set on Fridays - topic homework is due in on the following Thursday

 

Reading - please support your children with reading on a regular basis (at least four times a week) and ensure that their reading record is signed off. 

 

As the weather is getting colder, children are wearing coats, hats and gloves. Don't forget to write names on these items to avoid them getting lost. 

No Pens Day

 

We really enjoyed taking part in our activities on 'No Pens Day'. We used the opportunity to learn more about teamwork, creativity, speaking and listening, and learning to persevere when our learning gets tricky. In the morning, we completed the challenge to making the longest ever paper chain snake by working as a team. We got messy creating some 'Jungle Desserts' using natural resources. In the afternoon, we painted using only cotton buds to teach us patience. We had so much fun. 

Have a look at some of the photos from the day. 

Remembrance Day

 

During this week in assembly times and PSHE we have been reflecting on Remembrance Day and our brave armed forces. As part of a whole school project led by the School Council, we made a class poppy wreath. We added our thoughts about who/what we will remember in our two minutes silence when we are joined by representatives of the Royal British Legion.

A Special Visitor

 

We had a visit from the author Jack Trelawny. We enjoyed listening about what has inspired him to write his series 'Kernowland'. We found it interesting how he uses pictures and real life to help him come up with his ideas for his stories. In class we researched the 'thirteen things' that Jack Trelawny is using to write his next series of books. 

Our Pirate themed day for Jack Trelawny

Being responsible in Science

In Science, we have been learning all about the positive and negative human impacts on our environment. We discussed important issues such as deforestation, littering, pollution and animal endangerment, and tried to think about some of the solutions. We spent some of our afternoon trying to have a positive impact on our school environment by picking up the litter. We were really shocked by how much we found in such a short space of time. We are going to work harder to keep our school cleaner. 

Festive Fire Safety

 

We had the Fire and Rescue Service visit us to teach us all about how to keep safe and avoid causing fires at home. We learnt to think more carefully about using candles, overloading power points, keeping thins away from heaters and checking our smoke alarms regularly. Can you spot any fire hazards in our photos?

 

KS2 Carol Concert

 

We really enjoyed walking down to the church together and singing in our carol concert. It was great to get us into the Christmas spirit and celebrate this wonderful time of the year.
