Venus Catch up

Orienteering was introduced to Venus Class this week. They were most enthusiastic about trying it out and ran the course well. They used their map reading skills to follow the course and find the stations, where they uncovered a letter. They recorded their findings as they went along, overcoming the challenges of outdoor pursuits admirably. Once all stations had been visited, they unscrambled their letters to find a word relating to our History topic.

Venus class have been experiencing our new ‘Book Nook’. Each guided reading group have reclined inside on cushions and beanbags to enjoy reading for pleasure. Luckily, it is large enough for everyone in the group to settle inside, get comfortable and lose themselves in their chosen book. We are hoping to upgrade the Nook in the near future using funds kindly donated by Carlton Friends. Watch this space for news on our ‘refit’!

Venus Class began their new science topic this week: Light! We learned about the need for a light source and how light travels to an object and is reflected into our eyes. We also learned that we need light to see things; this was tested by entering the ‘dark room’, where it is pitch black once to door is closed. We definitely couldn’t see a thing! It was great fun to experience this fact. We also learned that the iris is actually a muscle and watched it contract.

Venus Class has some impressive gymnasts who have been inspiring the rest of the children perform their very best. Over recent weeks we have focused on rolls and balances and today we have been putting them together, thinking about our final objective of performing a sequence in front of an audience. The children have made considerable progress and they are looking forward to including bench work next week.

Venus Class worked on the Archie Project during the week, with a focus on leadership: what leadership means and the qualities needed for successful leadership. A practical activity was carried out by the children where leaders guided blindfolded partners around an obstacle course, and they learned about leadership and trust . They then learned about famous inspirational people and gave a short presentation on the qualities of each one.

The enthusiasm for our Science topic, Earth, Sun and Moon has been almost tangible this week in Venus Class! The children have produced ‘out of this world’ homework which has astounded all of the adults, including Mr Watson! Their drive and focus has promoted an excellent learning environment and ensured a deeper understanding of our Solar System. We’ve had a brilliant week, one which has shone as brightly as Venus itself. Thank you!

The children have been learning about the Earth’s rotation and how this results in day and night. They shared impressively detailed explanations and enjoyed modelling the process using balls and torches.  They also discussed how shadows are formed at night and moved on to  investigating the various time zones around the world. We had great fun comparing time across several countries, which involved  imaginary jet setting around the world!

Continuing the school’s Christmas tradition of delivering gifts to the senior members of our village, Venus Class, with the help of Mercury Class, played Santa earlier this week. The children  thoroughly enjoyed handing over the gifts, along with letters and Christmas cards. Our older parishioners showed great appreciation with smiles, chats and even a few tears of joy! The children also sang to every person they delivered to; a great start to the season.

We love reading in Venus Class!. The children really enjoy their silent reading session during guided reading and are eager to share their reading experiences with their peers. Our Beowulf story is coming to a close; it is proving to be a gruesome end for the hero on his final quest. The children have really enjoyed the blood thirsty  language and the wonderful imagery created by the generous helping of kennings.

Venus Class have begun our Christmas preparations this week by wrapping the gifts for the senior people in our community. The gifts were bought with the proceeds from our Harvest produce sale and they will be distributed around the village before the Christmas break. They also wrote cards and are in the process of writing a letter to send with their cards, sharing  their learning and interests. We like to keep in touch with these special people.
