Today we began learning all about money as part of our Maths learning. The children were all given a coin and they had to have a good look and describe the features of it. Some children noticed that there was a picture of the Queen, a picture of a crown, the number of the coin and some children recognised that some coins were silver and some were copper.
The children were then tasked with matching their coin to the written value, they did quite a good job too.
Today in R.E we looked at the differences and similarities between Christianity and Islam focussing on fasting and the special holy festivals of Ramadan and Lent.
The children were able to see that there were quite a lot of similarities such as fasting for many days, giving to the poor or to charity, being a good person and trying your best.
Today we had an art lesson with Mrs Hardwick. We used vine charcoal to draw superheroes. We used actual figurines to do our observational drawing. Have a look at our pictures below.
Arowa is always polite and uses her very best manners every day, she is a real positive role model in The Champions class so is deserving of her Gold Award today.
Christian also is a polite, well mannered member of the class, he always comes in with a positive attitude and gets straight on task. Well done Christian you also are very deserving of your Gold Award today.
This half term our P.E lessons will be all about gymnastics. We really enjoy the lessons with Miss Weston our P.E teacher from Arches.
Today we did our KWL display, this is when we find out what we already know about our new topic Superheroes, and also what we would like to find out. We had a circle time and all of the Champions shared their knowledge.
