Our topic this term was 'The Weather' we particularly enjoyed being weather reporters and reporting daily on the weather from our weather station that we created.
We made weather boxes for our display board which showed different types of weather and objects for our weather station.
We learnt all about the water cycle and painted pictures showing how the water cycle works.
We wrote simple explanations of how the water cycle works.
During the term we also took part in special event days. These included Rememberance Day activities where we painted pictures of Poppies and learnt about why people wear Poppies on Remembrance Day.
As part of Anti-Bullying week we took part in Odd Socks Day. Both children and staff wore odd socks to celebrate individuality and allow everyone to express themselves by showing how unique everyone is.
We also had a day when we wore something yellow to support Children in Need 2018. All these days add an extra element to our learning whilst supporting very worthy causes.
Of course the second half of this term we turned our attention to Christmas. What an exciting time we had in class, the classroom was transformed into Santa's workshop and the children turned into elves, of course we all know that elves have to go to school to learn as well as working in Santa's workshop! We also went to the panto in Oxford to see Dick Whittington. It was lots of fun!
Christmas lunch was as always delicious and enjoyed by all. The Christmas party was good fun, with lots of games, drinks and nibbles and we even received a special delivery from Santa. Thank you Santa Claus.
The highlight of the term was the nativity production 'A King is Born'. This was a fantastic production and was enjoyed by both the participants and the audience alike. The children never cease to amaze us with their fantastic singing which was not only evident in this production but also the carol concert at St Andrews Church, in Shrivenham.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
