Our learning this week...
On Wednesday 23rd October we had a Diwali day in class. We learned all about Diwali and took part in a rangoli pattern workshop.
We have been very busy writing a play-script for the Christmas story. We cannot wait to perform this to you next month! Last week we used lots of superb verbs in our writing. This week we will be writing autumn poems.
Here are the the common words we are learning I class. You should have a copy of this at home.
Children can also access spelling activities on Spelling Shed.
