October 2022

Week 31st October - 4th November 2022
We have a new smartboard in our classroom. We were very excited to use it.
In History this week we have been debating whether we should still remember and celebrate the 5th of November. We had a great class debate and the children really enjoyed it. Some very passionate arguments for and against!
We have been learning about seeds and bulbs in science and what plants grow from bulbs.
In Forest School we weeded the raised bed by the Room of Joy and planted some tulip bulbs. We have also prepared some mustard seeds to observe in the classroom.  We wondered which ones would grow first.
Week 17th-20th October 2022
This week we took part in a Rosary of 1 million children for peace and unity around the world.
The school chaplains led the prayers in Kids Zone. It was a very peaceful experience for the children and they wrote down their thoughts and feelings afterwards. They really enjoyed this opportunity to pray together in this lovely quiet space.
Week 10th-14th October 2022
This week we have been using ten frames to make ten and count on in maths when adding a 1 digit to a 2 digit number. 
We learned about Judaism and why they rest on Shabbat. We acted out a Shabbat ceremony and tasted the yummy challah bread.
Week 3rd-7th October 2022
This week we have been really enjoying music. We are getting more confident at playing our glockenspiels in our music lesson and we were very creative on Laudato Si day at putting actions to the eco song we performed together.
