What a wonderful time the children have had at school this half-term! Once again, we are so very proud of them and everything they have achieved. We know our second project ‘There’s No Place Like Home’ has been exceptionally well-received and the children have enjoyed learning many new things about the UK and Basingstoke. Not only this, but last week, each class designed and made their very own bread roll which could one day become a symbol of Hampshire. The children practised their kneading skills and the results were brilliant! We hope you were allowed to try a tiny bit too! Here are some of the tasty creations 4G came up with:
We have been busy planning our housing developments for ‘Hampshire Homes’. The children have shared such wonderful ideas, especially about how their construction would impact the environment in a positive way. They have really enjoyed the designing process and it is clear to see their creative juices have been flowing:
We will be sending these off to Mr. Clarke at the end of the week 😉
- We will not be setting any homework over the Christmas break, but please do continue to read most days with your child and use TT Rockstars. We are SO proud of the children who have put the effort into learning their times tables this term and have now received their Diamond Award – well done! After the holiday, we will introduce a piece of Grammar and Maths homework each week.
- You should have now received a link to access our Christmas videos. The children had great fun putting these together – we hope you enjoy them!
We thank you all for your support this term and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
