In Reception, they have been using repeated patterns to make paper chains for Christmas decorations. They have also been wishing upon a star. This week in Year 1 we have been creating missing posters for the bear’s teddy and in maths we have been learning about division as sharing. In Year 2 they have been busy practising for their Nativity performance. They have also been writing a story based on Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs.

In Year 3 they have been learning about multiplication and using arrays in maths. In English they have been looking at the poetry and writing their own versions. Finally, in Geography they have been looking at Ordnance Survey maps of New Ash Green. Year 4, have been writing persuasive letters to the main character in our book, The Great Kapok Tree, desperately trying to save the tree from being felled. This has linked to their rainforest work; in geography they have found out about the different layers of the forest.  They have also enjoyed creating our advent candles – inspired by Seurat’s pointillism.  Year 5 have been learning about Shackleton’s journey to Antarctica and have taken on the role of one of his crew. In science they have looked at which materials would keep Shackleton’s tea warm for the longest! In maths they have been recapping our knowledge of negative and prime numbers. In Year 6 we have been reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. In maths we have been looking at finding the nth term in algebra.

Remember, Together Everyone Achieves More.
