Welcome back to the 2020-21 school year! Back to school this year was a year like no other and one we will never forget. Extensive planning and preparation took place to ensure a safe school reopening in these unprecedented times and it is great to have our classrooms filled with smiling faces,chatter and laughter again 😊
The boys and girls in 3rd and 4th class settled back quickly into the school routine and have adjusted very well to the new rules and safety protocol in place around the school and in our classroom. They understand the importance of adhering to these rules to ensure that our schoo lstays open and Covid-free. The pupils are delighted to see their friends again and to have face-to-face interaction with their teacher. We were also delighted to welcome our new friend, Kasper, to our class and we have enjoyed hearing his stories about Latvia and Sweden.
I am amazed at how hard-working the pupils in 3rd and 4th class are. They show enthusiasm and motivation for all their lessons and lots of revision and new learning has taken place this term. The children have worked hard at their joint handwriting, reading and spellings. We have had some great fun with spellings games such as Sparke and Boggle and the pupils have been doing a great job so far with their Spellings homework. We are revising and learning our Times Tables and we have had heated competitions with our Tables games like ‘Hit the Button’ and ‘King/Queen of the Tables’. We grew Cress seeds as part of Science, focused on our drawing skills with a range of cool art lessons and have had each other in stitches with improvisational drama activities and funky poetry writing lessons.
The boys and girls in 3rd/4th were rewarded for all their hard work this term with a Halloween party on the last day of term. We dressed up, played some fun spooky games, enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows and ended with a party and DVD afternoon. Check out some of our photos below!
