The highlight of our week has undoubtedly been our trip to Chatsworth to visit the 'Faraway Lands' Christmas displays in the house.
We were treated to some absolutely incredible displays from countries all across the world. The decorations from China and Japan were particularly beautiful. As well as this, the guides in every room gave us lots of information about the house and the Dukes and Duchesses who have lived there.
As we were so lucky with the weather, we were able to spend the afternoon exploring the farm park and adventure playgrounds - it was an experience that was enjoyed by both adults and children alike!
Thank you for a wonderful day, Fauns.
We've had a great first week back after half term.
We have spent a lot of time this week looking at travel brochures. We've been getting to grips with their purpose, features and the language that they use. We've really enjoyed reading printed versions and watching digital versions on the internet.
On Thursday, we started on work on 'The Great Project'. We thought about the many different relationships that we have and what makes them positive and healthy.
In Maths, we have been working on our bar modelling skills and using them to solve word problems. Some of the problems have been really tricky but we have persevered to find the answers. Why don't you have a go at them together at home?!
We've had a great first week in school and have settled in brilliantly as Fearless Fauns.
On Wednesday we spent time thinking about what we would like our class to be like this year. We thought carefully about the rights and responsibilities we have and used these to draw up our class charter. This is our agreement on how we will act and behave in class.
On Friday we spent the day looking at the masks the Maya people used. They were an important part of their culture and traditions.
We looked at some examples and have used them as inspiration for our own masks. Next week we will finish them with the final intricate details.
