What a busy last week of term we have had in Jupiter class! We celebrated Christingle by making our own and partaking in the Ely cathedral Christingle service. After watching the live stream we all went out to the playground to light our Christingle and sing songs. On Tuesday we shared our homework projects with each other, we are so impressed with all of the hard work you have all put into these projects- well done! On Wednesday we had our yummy Christmas lunch. On Thursday we had our last Tri-Golf lesson, we have loved these lessons! We filmed our play script performance using our stick puppets inspired by Fair’s Fair. We also wrote our own Christmas Kenning poems which we put in our Christmas cards. Finally, we had a fun filled reward day- making lots of Christmas crafts, watching Christmas films and playing some Christmas games. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a restful break! :)

We have had another great week in Jupiter class. In our Maths lessons we have been working with money, and have been calculating totals using a variety of different coins. In English we spent Monday to Thursday planning our own story based off an illustration in the book ‘Once Upon an Ordinary School Day’ and ended the week by writing our stories using all our amazing adjectives and adverbs.
Have a lovely weekend!
Week ending 2nd October 2020.
We have had a great week in Jupiter class! We celebrated European Day of Languages on Monday, we focused on Italian. We learnt how to say hello and we learnt all about the yummy Italian food. As well as Italian, we had our French lesson where we learnt how to ask someone's name and say 'my name is...'.
We also celebrated International Poetry day on Thursday. We have learnt the poem 'The Sparrow Hawk' together as a class, we have been practising our actions alongside the poem, which we will be performing on Tuesday within class.
In our Maths lessons we have been focusing on partitioning and ordering numbers, and within our English lessons we have focused on descriptive writing, specifically focused on the story 'Once Upon an Ordinary School Day'.
This week we completed assessments for reading, SPAG, writing and maths. These assessments allow us to identify areas of learning that need to be a focus within our lessons. We continued to look at Here We Are within our PSHE lessons. We also have looked at our Victorian topic in more depth. We have focused on the differences between rich and poor. We also designed our own peg dolls with a focus on what materials the Victorians would have been able to use for toys.
