It has been another great week in Windrush Class! I have been really impressed with the children’s perseverance as we have been getting back into the swing of the school routines.
We had a very exciting day on Thursday as Mrs Davies joined us in the afternoon to teach the first strings lesson of the year. Our first lesson involved a lot of organising; the children were each given their instrument (either a violin or a cello) and we learnt how to safely take the instrument out of its case; I was so impressed with how patient the children were and how carefully they handled the instruments. We also learnt how to hold the instruments and had our first got at plucking the strings.
In our RE lesson this week we introduced our big question, ‘What is it like to follow God?’ and over the next half-term, we will be using the story of Noah to help us think about this question. This week we reminded ourselves of what happens to Noah and we then began to bring the story to life using actions and drama.
We have also started our History topic for the Autumn Term, ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age’. This week we thought about what we might already know about this period of history and we used some photos and drawings as clues to find out about what life might have been like.
The class have also really enjoyed their first French lessons with Madame Richards. On Wednesday, the children started to learn how to count in French and had lots of fun playing bingo to help them remember the numbers!
Homework will be set on Google Classroom each week and will consist of the weekly spelling list (also on Spelling Shed), reading regularly at home, and practicing the times tables. The spelling list is set each Friday and we will have a test on the following Friday morning in school.
