Welcome to Week 7 and to this lovely fresh morning. There is a lovely feeling about a cool autumn morning that turns into a mild and sunny day! The term is starting to get busier in terms of our class preparing for assembly with whole school activities and events just around the corner. This time of the year also reminds us of our journey through Lent, which brings us closer to Easter and Jesus’ resurrection. A time central to the Catholic faith and our love for all human beings.
Happy Birthday to Sreyleab and Michelle, both 8 years of age!
Thank you to Michelle’s mum and grandma who delighted the class with a beautiful cake to celebrate Michelle’s birthday. They cut it up for the children, placed it on plates with spoons, and a drink was offered as well. It was delicious and the children loved the treat! The teachers loved the cake too.
Let’s Eat Cake!!
Our new reader is The Most Colourful Frog in the World by Julie D Morris. The frog wanted more than anything to be like all the other frogs that he knew. We noticed that there were quite a few paragraphs in this story and this is something we will be focusing on over the next week or so.
Literacy Investigations – rotation #1
In Maths Mini we were practising our doubling skills using deck of cards. Some of us were practising doubles to 20, whilst others were confident enough to try doubling and doubling again. Joshua and Riya were feeling super confident today and just wanted to keep on doubling, reaching 100s of thousands – accurately!

Mrs Handforth viewed some of Keith Haring’s art work with the students. The children had a go using his style of art and did quite a good job.
