Class 2 enjoyed a running dictation to support their visual memory, improve their use of letter names for spelling and develop their learning powers. The "gatherers" had to collect information to bring back to the "printers" in order that the printers could recreate the page from our core text on their sheet of paper. This required good communication skills, organisation, strategic thinking and at the same time, helped them to understand more about the traditions of sukkot in Juadaism.
Some teams did very well and gathered loads of information, with their printers managing to recreate much of the text. How do you think they compare?

3 dedicated little people kept focused right until the close of play today to produce some fantastic, child-initiated, collaborative, cross-curricular acrostic poems about autumn; demonstrating scientific, religious and geographical understanding! What have you done today to make you feel proud???
Here are this week's working walls for English and Maths. It is São important that you talk to your child about what they have been learning about and these walls, as well as supporting your child's learning, should help you to better support your child in their learning at home, as well as giving you some discussion starters to ensure they can talk to you about their days. No longer can they answer "nothing" to that age old question, "What have you done in school today?"

We used our reading comprehension skills to learn all about the tradition of sukkah building. We found out that they must always have at least two finished walls and the beginning of a third, that the roof must be constructed from something that once grew in the ground and that it must provide enough cover to shelter someone from the sun while allowing them to see the moon. We had a go a building our own little sukkahs.

Today we started thinking about how harvest is celebrated in Christianity and Judaism. Some children went outside to make their own version of a traditional Jewish lulav.
