11th - 15th September
It's been a fantastic and action packed first week back for the Fearless Fauns.
At the start of the week we focused in on our new topic - Going Underground. We used the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony as inspiration to get us thinking about the industrial revolution. We then went on a treasure hunt to find out more key facts to develop our understanding.
In English, we've been looking closely at the novel 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. We've thought about the settings and characters and how we can use quotes to support our work.
Maths has been challenging as we are getting to grips with using bar models. We've had great fun using lots of new equipment to support our learning.
On Thursday, a group of Fauns went to Quarrydale to take part in the Cross Country Festival. It was a long course around the perimeter of the Quarrydale field and we ran not just one, but two laps! All the children did fantastically but a special mention goes to Ryan, who came first in the boys' race, and Emily, who came second in the girls' race. The pair then teamed up with James and Freya for an emphatic victory in the team race.
