Christmas is approaching, this week we have begun rehearsing our 2023 nativity in readiness for the up and coming performances. Learners class will be angels and shepherds and we have been busy allocating parts and lines.
On Friday, we delighted in creating decorations for the school tree at St Mary’s Church in Whitby. Our theme was to show our continued school support for The Zambezi Sunrise Trust. After a class discussion, we decided on making baubles displaying sunrises and globes, the finished products were very effective. We were also lucky to be joined by Jo from the Zambezi Sunrise Trust.
This week in computing, Learners class have used the chrome books to type a Michael Rosen poem. We are still learning to log-in independently and are persevering with using capital letters on the keyboard.
In Art, we have been applying our recently learned drawing skills to create some observational drawing. We identified intricate details of plants and the results were brilliant.
We enjoyed some gymnastics in PE and used benches to travel across, concentrating on our control and balance.
We have begun to learn about the first Christmas in RE and enjoyed listening to the story and identifying key features while drawing story maps sequencing the characters and key events.
In phonics this week we have learned about split digraphs and have been avidly spotting split digraphs in everything we have been reading.
Learners achieved best attendance (again) this week and were proud to be able to choose the ‘coming to school song’ on Friday.
The weather is turning colder now and Christmas is just around the corner, hold on to your hats!
