Derwent Class are loving their new History topic. We have been looking at different technology over the decades. The children have been great at sequencing phones and computers and the Year 3s have also been able to label objects with the correct decades. 

We are really excited  because we decided to write letters to Grandparents to ask them to come into school or send letters, to help us to learn about what life was like for them when they were children. We can't wait to learn more!

 This half term, Derwent Class have been thinking about different festivals. After celebrating Harvest, we began learning about some Hindu festivals. The children have enjoyed learning the Story of Rama and Sita and why Diwali is celebrated. However their favourite festival was Holi where people throw paint at each other to celebrate their festival of colour. I have been really impressed with the respect the children have shown this topic.

Derwent Class have been enjoying their Maths this week. We have been using number facts to help us to work out other calculations. The children particularly enjoyed playing “Hit the Button” finding the facts that add together to make different numbers. Derwent are so good at collaborating on the computers and supporting each other to work out answers.

Derwent Class had a wonderful morning at St Mary’s Church last week. The theme this year was “The Church” and the children loved the different  activities they took part in. As usual the children showed impeccable behaviour and asked fantastic questions to the kind members of the church community, who led the workshops. These events are so lovely to take part in and really add to our curriculum. Thank you to everyone involved.

Derwent Class are enjoying their metacognition lessons this term. These are the lessons where we think about how we think. Last week we started to learn the new skill of sign language. Each week we are learning it in a different way to see which works well for us. So far we have tried to learn it through looking at pictures and watching a video. I am impressed with how quickly the children are picking it up!

What a fantastic time we are having in Derwent Class, learning all about Moi (Me) in our French lessons. The Year 3’s are being great mentors to the year 2’s, helping them with pronunciation and learning a song called Bonjour, bonjour! You may have heard it? Also during computing, the class have shown a good understanding of following instructions - Algorithms. Well done Derwent Class for showing respect and great collaboration with one another.

Derwent Class have been working really hard in Maths this week. We have been making numbers using different resources then comparing them to see which is “greater than” or “less than”. Year 2 have been working confidently up to 100 and the Year 3s have been using numbers up to 1000! The children have particularly enjoyed problem solving, trying to work out which number will fit. Great work Derwent Class. Keep it up!

This week, Derwent Class have been learning about the invisible buckets we all carry. We know when we do kind things for people not only does this fill other people’s buckets but it fills our buckets too. This means when we’re kind to others it makes them and us happy. We also learned about bucket dipping. When people do something that is not kind this is bucket dipping. However, we know when we dip into someone else's bucket we end up dipping into our own bucket too! Derwent Class have definitely filled my bucket this week with their fantastic attitudes! Well done Derwent Class.

What a lovely day we had on Tuesday for our rounders competition. I was so proud of the way the Year 2  children encouraged  and supported the Year 1’s. Every child worked well with their team and shook hands with their opponents afterwards. We had some brilliant batting and fielding. I couldn’t believe they’d only played a few times! The children were full of enthusiasm even after the 6th game. Thank you to everyone for making it such a fun day.
