Diamond class had a fantastic week. All our lessons were based on ‘After the Fall’ by Dan Santat, we produced some great art work, collaging Humpty Dumpty on his wall and producing his paper birds. In maths we measured how far Humpty Dumpty’s birds travelled and produced a graph to compare the distances. We discussed the difficulties that Humpty faced through out the book and how he over came them relating Humpty’s bravery to our own lives. On Wednesday, Mr West came in to help us create our own walls for Humpty and his own house, unfortunately that collapsed too, after playing wall jenga. We loved dressing up as our favourite book characters, the children and their families had put so much hard work into their outfits. Can you spot Cruella De Vil stealing the Dalmatians in the picture? Diamond class helped her to come up with her plan….
On Wednesday 6th November,Diamond, Ruby and Quartz class went to Stratford Court to take part in a school rugby tournament. The children were all placed into countries to play against each other, we saw some fantastic sportsmanship. The children had all worked really hard over the half term to learn the rules of tag rugby in our PE lessons.
Well done to Scotland who won our tournament.
This week Diamond class has been turned into a giant place value grid. The children have been learning how to multiply and divide by 10 and 100. The children have learnt how multiplying makes a number move to the right to get bigger and dividing makes it smaller, meaning it moves to the left.
Today the chidlren created their own Stonehenge out of clay! They started by designing their own backgrounds, deciding if they wanted a dark night or a sunset. Then they spent the afternoon sculpting Stonehenge out of clay. Can you spot any of our clay people who are visiting Stonehenge?
This term Diamond class have been learning about the Stone age. Last week we travelled back to the Stone age to try some stewed fruit. The children were in charge of cutting up all the fruit and then we cooked it, some of the children were hoping it would be over an open fire!! The children all loved the stewed fruit, but that may have been helped by a sneaky bit of sugar that was added. See if your child can make you some lovely stewed fruit.

Mrs Lynham has been in touch, checking in that everyone is doing well. She is regularly checking the blog to see what you are all up to so keep the photos coming in!
Here is a message from Mrs Lynham: Lovely to see what everyone has been up to on the website.
We’ve been doing lots of home learning (even me!) but also managed to get out in the sunshine. We have done some orienteering and created a map of where we went using a compass and counting how many steps we did. We also took our binoculars so that we could look for birds. On Wednesday last week we drew some rainbows so that we could stick them in our window for people to spot if they walked past.
Lovely to hear from you Mrs Lynham- Keep safe

It was lovely to speak to Niall yesterday and hear all about what him and his family have been up to! I love the story you sent through, good use of fronted adverbials and you’ve remembered the comma afterwards (2 dojos for when we get back to school)! Keep up the good work Niall, your cooking looks fabulous :) Sorry that I could only upload the first page to this entry…
