Maths and Reading
A mix of Maths and Book club! We are making the most of the current situation and reading at our desks. In Maths we used our resources to create an array of multiplications.

That’s right, we blinked and it’s 2022! Your lovely Larch’s returned to school with an amazing mindset and have given their all in every activity. They have earned a very restful weekend indeed!
Today in History, we explored the meaning of chronology and created our own timelines to show each major period of time in the order that they happened. We understand the meaning and difference between AD and BC and pinpointed where Ancient Egypt appears in the order.
Last Week of Term
This week, the countdown to Christmas started in Larch with some very excited children.
The children used their skills in Pointillism to create a calendar to use for the year.
We made Christingles to symbolise the world and it’s light.
The children completed their DT photo frames and then had an amazing party!
We are grateful to all of our parents and adults at home for their support during a particularly challenging half term for Larch class. We hope you have an amazing Christmas!

This week the lovely Larches were able to return to class after their week of remote learning and they certainly have done everybody proud.
This week we have been able to explore more about Animals and Humans in Science, written a setting description in English and explored different Christmas traditions in other countries during RE. We also found some time to read in our festive looking book corner.

This afternoon we were joined by the fabulous Mr Pearson, who was our "Mystery Reader". He shared a wonderful book by Janet Allan Ahlberg "Cops and Robbers" All children were transfixed by the story.
Thank you Mr Pearson.

Anti Bullying Day- One Kind Word
Today, the children in Larch took part in activities linked to the theme of 'One Kind Word'. They made Kindness Keys and Kind word posters to make sure they understood what kindness meant and show how they would be kind others. Check out the our work below!

Today, we had an amazing day at Celtic Harmony. We learnt so many things about The Stone Age and how the people of the era lived. We started off by exploring how they made fire and then onto building our own shelters - they must have been freezing as there were no radiators! Then, we learnt about the wide variety of tools created by the Stone Age people and then we made a meal using herbs. We followed this up by hunting a huge Wooly Mammoth and then finished our day with a story/play. The children had huge smiles on their faces throughout and we were very sad when it was time to leave.

Today, we had the excitement of a Mystery Reader coming to our classroom to read us a book! Mrs Tish came in with the book ‘Can a Unicorn Help me Deal with being Bullied’ which links to Anti-Bullying week next week. The children were engrossed and learnt a great deal from the reading session. Thank you Mrs Tish!

Today, our lovely Larches really enjoyed their first ever book club! Having the chance to read in the area of their choice was so refreshing and our imaginations ran wild.
