What a busy first term this has been! Seacole class have settled in brilliantly to their new school and myself and the TAs Mrs Burgess and Mrs Gibbs are very proud of the progress that all children have made so far. Although this week has been short and sweet, we have managed to pack lots in!
On Monday, the whole school walked to the church and had a lovely harvest festival celebration, where Year 3 were also welcomed to Southbroom St James. The children sang beautifully and presented their harvest crowns to the school and parents. I was really proud of the way Seacole class behaved and sung during the service and it was lovely to see the children receiving their own copy of the bible.
In English, we have been using apostrophes to show contraction and possession. In maths, we have built the 3 x table and noticed patterns. We also learned how to estimate by rounding to the nearest 10 to check if our answers were reasonable. Everyone has tried their best this week and lots of house points were earned!
We also created our very own fossils using shells and plasticine to create a mould and then filled this with plaster of paris. These will dry over half term, ready for us to discover on our first week back! We also found out all about Mary Anning and her important fossil discoveries.
Have a fantastic half term break!
