This week in Beavers, we have had another great week filled with fun, new skills and plenty of knowledge. In Maths this week, we have continued to work on our understanding of factors and multiples. We discovered prime numbers, square numbers and cubed numbers. Whilst we found it tricky everyone persevered and I was extremely proud of everyone for their efforts. As part of our new topic, we have been reading 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell - Boyce. We have loved reading about the trouble and mischief Liam gets up to. Our favourite part so far is when Liam's mistaken for a teacher and he leads all of the children out of the school. In PE we had fun testing our knowledge of compass directions, we completed challenges together in groups which were rather challenging but everyone was successful eventually. It's been a fantastic week in school, have a lovely weekend and I'll see everyone on Monday.
I'm so pleased to be back with everyone this week especially since we have had so much fun. This week we have jumped feet first into our new topic as we explored the galaxy we live in. We have researched the eight planets in our solar system, thought about the size and scale of the planets, why we have day and night and discovered the fascinating life of Galileo Galilei. We also began to think about the term "WWJD" in our RE lessons where we had lots of fun building towers on clay or sand which we related to the parable of the wise and foolish builders.
I hope you all have had a fantastically wonderful holiday. Whilst I wish I could've been in school this week I have heard how hard all the children have worked and how much they've all enjoyed starting our new topic Stargazers. In Beavers this week the children have been busy working on their sewing skills to create a 3D stitched version of the moon. As if that wasn't enough they also concentrated on their painting skills in art by creating a beautiful painting showing the different phases of the moon. Finally this week the children thought about their dreams and goals for the future in PSHE and some of the ways they could work towards their goals.
