We are sharing our weekly news every Friday.

Week 31+

We have had another fun filled week in France class! For English this week we have read the story ‘dear zoo’,  focusing on the adjectives to describe the different animals. We then wrote our own letters to Chester Zoo asking for our favourite animals. The pupils worked hard using lots’ of adjectives to describe their chosen animal and structuring their writing into a letter format. For Topic, we have continued our Coastline topic by comparing features of the seaside to features in our local park. We spoke about the similarities and differences between the locations and identified whether the features were natural or manmade. For Art we made some beautiful Coastline pictures using powdered paint. Keep up the hard work class France!’

Week 30+

We have had another fun filled week in France class! On Tuesday, we had our final swimming lesson of the year. The pupils have thoroughly enjoyed their lessons over the last week and have developed new skills and confidence in the water.  On Wednesday, we continued our visits to local coastlines with a trip to Crosby beach. We identified different features of the coastline and discussed whether they were natural or man-made. For Food Technology on Thursday, we made delicious chicken salad sandwiches. The students developed their cutting and chopping skills as well as their awareness of a healthy, balanced diet. Keep up the hard work France class!

Week 29+

We have had a really busy week in France class this week. On Tuesday we started our swimming lessons a week earlier than expected!- thanks to France class families for being so flexible with this change and having the swimming kits ready. The pupils have all thoroughly enjoyed their lessons this week and have made so much progress! It has been wonderful to see their confidence in the water increase and their swimming skills develop over the last few days. As well as our swimming lessons’ we have been busy learning more about our Coastlines topic. This week we have looked at seaside’s from the past and present identifying features we saw on our visit to New Brighton. On Thursday we also continued our ‘quick meals’ food technology topic and made some delicious Spaghetti on toast. The students developed their cutting and spreading skills as well as their food hygiene and safety awareness. Keep up the hard work class France!

Week 28+

This week in Class Portugal, we have been learning all about the coasts! We made some beautiful seashells from clay – we worked really hard to follow the instructions! We also went to Hale Village on the minibus to see the coast and the lighthouse. We sketched the lighthouse when we got back to school.

In English, we continued reading Hansel and Gretel and made our own biscuit houses based on the story. We used sweets and icing to decorate them. We also chose some adjectives to describe our houses to our friends.

In Maths, we have been learning all about doubling, we had a doubling machine which we put cubes into to calculate the answers.

Finally, in Geography, we helped Paddington Bear sort out his travel photographs into ‘city or coast’.

A fantastic week!

Week 27+

We have had an excellent first week back after our Easter break. The pupils have really enjoyed the start of our Coastline’s topic and have used their ICT skills to research local sea-sides. Next week we will be visiting New Brighton to look at the features of the coastline and see which parts are manmade or natural. For our English Fairy Tales’ topic, we read the story of Hansel and Gretel. The class worked hard recognising the different emotions of Hansel and Gretel throughout the story then wrote excellent book reviews all about their favourite part. Keep up the hard work class France!
