In our RE lessons this term we have been learning about Judaism and the agreements and promises that Jewish people make to themselves and those around them. We have also been thinking of good ways to help us remember our agreements and promises that we have made – especially the promises we have made at school!
We came up with some ideas as a class about promises we can make. We even remembered to link our promises to our Learning to Learn behaviours when we promised to listen like bats.
We read an award winning book for Reading for Pleasure day called ‘Gustavo the Shy Ghost’. We learnt about the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico and did some short writing based on our responses to the book. In the afternoon we made our own masks!
2FD had a lovely afternoon yesterday to celebrate winning the carrot competition. We played lots of party games, danced till we dropped (we are very competitive musical bumps players!) and we even had time to decorate some Easter cards.
We hope you all have a lovely Easter Break and have a much needed rest!
What a wonderful message for both Mrs Desborough and I to see when we finished our planning session on Tuesday afternoon. We know how much the children in 2FD enjoy the lessons during our PPA time and we are so proud of their effort and behaviour when working with other teachers.
You are all super stars….and excellent at Mandarin it seems!! Well done 2FD!
We have now started a new unit of work in our Maths lessons on weight!
This week we used the balance scales and counters and cubes to compare the weights of different items in the classroom. We really enjoyed our practical lesson and it was a great chance for some teamwork. Several children received one of our new learning behaviour stickers for their hard work in this fun lesson!
