It seems like only a few days ago that I wrote to say ‘goodbye’ to year 6 and to wish you all a lovely Summer. Where did those weeks go? It is great to be back and you can tell by looking at the smiling faces around the school that we are all pleased to be here! The children have made a fabulous start to the new term and have an exciting year of learning ahead!
Also, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to the new children in Newton, Jenner and Einstein Classes (Reception) and throughout the school. They have already settled so well – you would not believe that they have only been at Discovery for a few days!
Look what we’ve been up to…
I like to give parents a glimpse inside school in these newsletters. Here is what some of us have been doing…
Pasteur Class have been making the most of the sunshine – heading into the playground to measure the perimeter of different shapes. In Curie Class, the children were introduced to The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, as part of their study of "Twisted Tales"!
Year 1 have been learning and retelling the story ‘We're going on a Bear Hunt’.
In Reception, the children have enjoyed building a space rocket to go to the moon! They also appear to be building an extension to their classrooms..!
I love this Stonehenge cake from Hawking Class – made as part of their ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’ topic. Somehow I can’t see it lasting for 4000 years though! Year 5 have also been using the new maths manipulatives to help them read and write numbers to 100,000 including decimals to 2 decimal places! And the children in Berners-Lee Class have created their own artwork inspired by the Japanese artist Hokusai and his painting The Great Wave. Wow what a lot of learning!
