Autumn Term 2020
Maple class have settled back into St George’s really well, after many of the children have been learning from home for 6 months. They have worked incredibly hard and I couldn’t be any more pleased! Well done Maple!
This term we have focused on the topic ‘The Romans’. We have linked the topic to our Literacy lessons and written some fantastic information and explanation texts. We have also studied Roman numerals, which made us feel like code-breakers!
The children have been completely fascinated and let their enthusiasm on this topic lead them in their Art and DT tasks. The children worked on a carousel of activities to complete tasks such as: Roman soldier sketches, Lego Roman temple construction, mosaic art and designing and making a clay bust - see our photos below. They thoroughly enjoyed these tasks and it was a fantastic way to fully embed learning.
Year 3 have been working on a Roman dance in PE with Miss Ewers, which I can’t wait to watch. Year 4 will also be completing this dance activity after half term.
The children took part in a 2.5km run raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. As a school we raised over £900! Thank you so much to all who donated and thank you to the children for taking part and raising funds for such an important charity that is very close to the school’s heart.
Next term, Maple are looking forward to taking part in a 4 week Forest School activity. More information to follow shortly, I know they will be very excited to use the local resources and making the school’s vision, ‘Live Learning; Love Learning,’ so we make living ‘life in all its fullness’ more meaningful.
