In English this week we turned into elves just like Coco. We learned more about question marks and our elves asked each other questions. We learned that when a question is asked, you give an answer.
In RE we talked more about our new topic Advent. We learned about the Advent wreath and how there are 5 special candles - 3 purple, 1 pink and 1 white. The Priest lights a new candle each Sunday as we wait for Christmas. We learned what each candles means - hope, love, joy, peace and Christ. We made a class Advent wreath to hang in the hallway.
We also hung up our new Advent display and decorated our class Christmas tree.
In RE we had a special faiths lesson on Judaism. We learned about the father of Judaism - Abraham and the prophet leader - Moses. We learned about the story of Moses and how he led the Jews to safety through the Red Sea. We talked about what things make a good leader - kind, brave, loving. We talked and looked at lots of special artifacts - menorah, synagogue, Torah, kippah, Star of David, Hanukkah. We made menorahs using our fingerprints and paint to light the candles. Take a look at the autumn photo gallery to see more pictures.
In Art we finished our beautiful tissue paper wreaths for the hoops. They are now hanging in the big hall for everyone to see.
We also did made some paper Christmas trees and baubles to decorate the hallway and the classroom. Check out the Christmas picture gallery to see more pictures.

I thank parents so much for their continued support during this difficult year. We have been busy this week getting back into our school routine. Look at all the wonderful things we have learned.
In English this week, we reviewed our nouns, adjectives and verbs and how to use them correctly in sentences to make our writing more interesting. We had a very special friend arrive in our class and his name is Coco the elf! We described him using our adjectives and verbs. Take a look in our photo gallery to see more about our new elf friend.
In maths we reviewed our addition fact families and how we can write addition sentences with the equal symbol at the end and at the beginning.
In Science we continued our topic on the 4 seasons - winter, spring, summer and autumn. We chose our favourite season and created it using toilet rolls, cotton wool and paint. Take a look at our photo gallery to see more pictures.
In Art we made Christmas wreaths that will hang on our class hoop in the big hall for all the children to see. We made these using small paper plates, tissue paper, pompoms and glitter. Stay tuned next week for when they are all finished.

Super work this week children. You have worked very hard and completed fabulous work. A hip hip horray for you all! Parents, please ensure you are checking the class page frequently as it is our main source of contact. There are many great resources on our page and I encourage you and your child to have a look through.
In RE we started our new topic on 'Belonging.' We thought of all the groups and clubs we belong to and how it makes us feel to belong to something. It made us feel happy, special and loved. Check out the RE tab for more information on our new topic.
In maths we continued learning how to add. We started to look at how the part whole model can be represented in different ways/pictures. Our new words of the week were: add, plus, equal, altogether.
In science we continued our topic on 'Animals including humans' and our 5 senses - touching, seeing, smelling, tasting and hearing. We did a fun experiment where we had to smell and taste different foods and try to guess what it was. We smelled ketchup and vinegar and we tasted onion and lemon. Check out our photo gallery for more pictures!
