Week Beginning 11 December 2017


  • Wednesday 13th December - Festive Frock Day and Class Parties.
  • Friday 15th December is the last day of term, and some of the teachers will be performing a pantomime for the children!


This week, we will follow a Christmassy theme as we look at different Christmas television adverts over the years and discuss the emotions used within them. We will use this to practise our speaking and listening skills by creating our own Christmas adverts. Following this, the children will use the Christmas context of the ‘Monty the Penguin’ advert to practise letter and diary writing skills.


Emotion, empathy, advert, diary, letter


Next week in Maths, the children will be looking at multiplication and division. Children will be applying their knowledge to a range of contexts including problem solving. They will also be solving some Christmas related maths challenges which will include many areas of the curriculum we have covered so far this year.


Multiplication, division, method, solve, apply


Next week our theme will be…Christmas! We will write some Christmas poetry and copy them up for display. We will be learning about symmetry through the making of paper snowflakes, and we will use our knowledge of 3D shapes to make Christmas decorations.


Symmetry, create, snowflake, decoration


We will focus on using search technologies effectively to inform our understanding of topics. The children will search for information and develop methods to narrow their search.


Key words, precise, results page, synonyms, alternative


Deze laatste week voor de kerstvakantie oefenen we alle categorieën van spelling die we tot nu toe behandeld hebben in het kader van ‘de puntjes op de i’. We lezen de nieuwsbegriptekst over de Kindervredesprijs en maken de bijbehorende opdrachten. Ook maken we het lokaal startklaar voor juf Irene die na de kerstvakantie zal beginnen. Tot slot schrijven we mooie kerst- en nieuwjaarswensen aan elkaar, onze familie of onze vrienden.
