Science Week- Dinosaurs
We came into class to find some footprints and leaves. Which dinosaur could they belong to? Class 6 investigated dinosaur poo to find out if they were a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. We used the Ipads to research information about diplodocus dinosaurs and we created diplodocus skeleton artwork using art straws! We used our knowledge of these dinosaurs to write information texts.
Today Class 6 made their own dark, dark towns using junk modelling, chalk and sugar paper. They painted the buildings black and used sugar paper to add colour. Class 6 really enjoyed making their own Funnybones towns.
In Class 6 we have been learning all about the story of Jonah and the big fish.
We have made our own whale using paper plates. The moral of the story was that we should always listen to God and follow in Jesus’ footsteps. We also learned that God will always forgive us.
Stay and Pray for Parents
Today, Class 6 prayed together with their families. The children’s parents were invited into school to take part in our Epiphany prayer and worship. The children planned and led this, choosing hymns, bidding prayers, fabric and psalms.
Today, Class 6 learned all about the Feast of the Epiphany. We discussed why it would have taken the kings so long to get to Bethlehem. The children made 3-crown shortbread biscuits each to remind them of this important event. They took these home with the following Bible scripture to share with their families.
Welcome back to a new school year! We hope that you have enjoyed your Summer holidays and feel refreshed! The children have settled in well to their first day in Class 6. Your child's class teacher is Miss Martin and classroom TA's are Mr Jarvis and Mrs Tilley.
We have lots of exciting things planned for your children this year so we hope your children enjoy Year 2. The half term newsletters will be available to view on this page but if you require a paper copy please go to the main office.
