Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

 6th - 10th September

Our first full week in school has come to an end, and the children have worked fantastically hard. In English, we continued our learning on traditional tales by reading Blackberry Blue and analysing the characters Prince Wolf, Prince Just and Blackberry Blue. We explored the theme of motherly love and used all this work to create and describe our own characters. In Maths, we finished our work adding to the next multiples of 100 and started exploring the place value of 4-digit numbers. The children particularly enjoyed our Topic lessons where they used atlases to explore where the Anglo- Saxons came from and the place names they inspired. Despite the heat, the children worked hard in PE where we practised our dribbling skills for football. The highlight of our week was singing lots of new songs in RE where we learned about God's promise to Abraham (with the song Father Abraham had many sons) and about Jacob and Joseph (with the song Jacob and Sons/Joseph's Coat). I hope the children enjoyed a well-earned weekend rest!
