This term in Apollo Class…

We have had a busy term full of fun and exciting learning. We have been working hard on place value and addition/subtraction for maths. Miss Pickard has made us work hard on our reasoning skills and explaining how we worked out our answers – she’s so unreasonable! We looked at Jack and the Beanstalk, Harry Potter, The Princess and the Pea and The Nativity story… and we wrote about all of them. We have been using adjectives, time connectives, bossy verbs, conjunctions and many more. We have written instructions, letters, stories, descriptions and posters. Apollo have been singing all about the 5 oceans and the 7 continents and can name all of them…just ask us. We’ve learnt all about the history of Castles, in particular Colchester castle. In PE we have been focused on basketball, and have gotten very good at our dribbling and perfecting our hand eye coordination skills. We have a varied experience of learning, both inside and outside. We are all very excited to come back for the new term to do some more exciting and fun learning. 

 

Apollo have been practising their Christmas production and have done an amazing job. Their singing was beautiful and they all put their best effort into making the performance great. A big well done to Apollo. To keep in theme, Apollo have been learning about the Nativity story. They have sequenced the story in ‘chronological order’ and given descriptive narratives of the characters and scenes. Afternoons have been spent getting into the Christmas spirit with different Christmas themes activities alongside their production practise. We hope everyone has a lovely Christmas break, from everyone in Apollo. 

This week in Apollo Class…

Apollo have all turned into witches and wizards this week. We have been creating gooey, stinky potions and turning our teachers into frogs with our magical spells. With our persuasive letter writing we have all convinced Dumbledore to give us a place at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. We earnt our wand permits by making our wands and performing spells. Lastly, we helped create wanted posters to find Voldemort and put him away for good.
