In our final week before half term, we continued our English work on sentence types. We wrote a story using statements, wrote questions to play 'Draw That Dragon!', used commands to try and trap a dragon and then wrote some exclamations about a dragon video clip (which we loved watching!).
We also set fire to Pudding Lane! (see link below)
After half term we will be continuing our work on The Great Fire of London, including a trip from the fire brigade to show us a fire engine and also a visit from Partake Theatre so we can experience what it would have been like in 1666. Look out for photos from these special days!
Have a great half term Fantastic Foxes!
This week we started work on different sentence types, so try asking your child about statements, questions, commands and exclamations. Can they tell you anything about them or even give an example of each?
What amazing sentences we wrote! (That's an exclamation sentence by the way) More work on sentence types next week and more dragons too!
We also continued our Science work on materials by drawing and writing objects that are made from different materials. PE was fun with Miss Hornsby and we produced some fantastic art work with Mrs Cobb, using charcoal to draw some London landmarks.
Another busy week in The Fantastic Foxes, including writing about superheroes, comparing London past and present, learning songs for our Harvest Festival (a huge thank you to everyone who donated to this by the way) and finishing some Great Fire of London art work. Well done Fantastic Foxes!
This week we welcomed back Mr Stone from PGL and started working in our Maths and Phonics groups. This busy week has just flown by!
In English we have been using superheroes to learn about 'Super Sentences'. Why not try asking your child what a 'Super Sentence' needs? We loved writing about our favourite superheroes and some of us even gave our opinions about why our superhero was better than all the others!
The Fantastic Foxes have also been preparing for our Harvest Festival next week by learning some songs to sing in church and Mrs Cobb has been teaching us all about the different features of a church (see photo below for some of our work in RE).
A huge thank you to everyone for their kind donations (of cake or money or both!) towards our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday. It was all for a fantastic cause.
All children have hopefully brought home their spellings to learn ready for a test on Thursday next week (it will usually be Friday but we are off to church for our Harvest Festival on Friday next week) and please don't forget to read with your child. We need that Fab 5 Reader award on our door! Our percentage this week was just 64%. I know we can do even better next week!
What a busy first week back we have had! All the Fantastic Foxes have settled in really well and we have had a great time finding out more about each other, including sharing our wonderful 'All About Me Bags'. We also started work on this term's topic of 'Fire!' by looking at the events of the Great Fire of London. Can your child remember what year the Great Fire started? Can they explain where and how it started?
We celebrated Roald Dahl's 100th Birthday too on Tuesday 13th September. We wrote some great sentences about Fantastic Mr Fox and even did some Roald Dahl maths too!
Something else we got to enjoy this week was the new MUGA on the field. We loved playing on it and having a PE lesson on there too. It's going to be a very welcome addition to the school!
Just a reminder that Mr Stone will be at PGL with our Year 6 children next week and the Fantastic Foxes will be in the very capable hands of Mrs Barnes (AM) and Mrs Herriot and Mrs Abbott-Lewin (PM).
