Special Mentions and CHAS
Every Friday, we celebrate the children's hard work; we do this by awarding one child per class a Special Mention and one child CHAS recognition. A badge will be awarded for each, and if given CHAS, our CHAS dragon will be able to come home for the weekend. He must be returned on Monday so he can be quarantined before being passed on to the next CHAS recipient. As well as CHAS, a special book to record all the exciting adventures you get up to together will be provided, and we will share this regularly in class.

Half Term Information Sheet
Recommended Reading List
Please see the below recommended reading lists for your children.
In Science this half term we are looking at sound. The children have made talking telephones out of plastic cups and string to understand how vibrations pass through the string and enter our ears.
In PE the children have been team building and it has been lovely to see such great team spirit, encouragement and support from each of them towards each other. They have excelled today in their leadership, group work and persistence. It was a fantastic lesson to watch.
In English, we have used the book Wolves in the Wall by Neil Gaiman. The children have written their own stories with a different animal coming out of the wall and then used the same animal to write an acrostic poem. They have done amazingly well and tried really hard to use different poetic devices within their poems.
In Mission Science we are learning about light. We have investigated which materials would be the most suitable for sunglasses as well as proving that light travels in straight lines.
