Beowulf by the fire!


This week we have continued to enjoy learning about Beowulf and the Saxons. We decided to have our own storytime around a campfire as they did in Saxon times. The children were given the choice of what they wanted to write about Beowulf and decided on stories, diary entries, letters and information leaflets about the Saxons. We were very impressed with the descriptive language the children used and how much they entertained us around the camp fire! Some children even overcome their fear of public speaking and gave it a go anyway.

The clarinet concert will be held next Monday at 2:30pm in the hall and we hope to see you there!


Home learning:

Abacus and Mymaths have been updated as usual with some fractions and place value work as we are working on fractions at the moment in class. The children have been learning to find equivalent fractions and how to add fractions with the same denominator.

Bugclub has now become part of active learn and all of the children’s books have now been assigned to them. So please enjoy the books and activities on there as usual.
