As we approach the end of the Autumn term Lions Class are going out and about to have some fun!
On Wednesday most of the children in our class went on a coach to the theatre at Rotherham to see the pantomime story of Jack and the Beanstalk. There was lots of excitement and the children had a great time shouting at the bad guy and cheering for the good guys.
Thank you to all the parents who came with us.
Next week the children are looking forward to showing the adults just how amazing they are when they take part in the Birk Hill Christmas concert. Don’t forget to buy your tickets, places are filling up fast!
The children are, of course, still taking part in lots of learning activities. This week will be the last Maths Challenge for this term so please make sure that all your challenges are handed in before Thursday 14th December so that you can receive your certificate in Gold Book Assembly.
The Good Old Days! Or were they? The children in Lions Class have been finding out all about wash day in the 1930s. They were able to see first-hand how the whole process of washing and drying clothes in the 1930s happened. It was extremely hard work! Lots of children had an opportunity to ‘have a go’.
Last week Lions Class helped to raise money for Children In Need by holding a toy sale in Class 4. Everyone in school had the chance to bring a toy they no longer wanted and 50p.The 50p was to buy a different toy from the sale.
Well Done Lions, you were amazing!
This week the children in Lions class we have been learning to measure the length of different things. We all worked together in groups to use a metre stick to measure lots of rooms and corridors around school.
We found out that the Nursery has the longest room and Lions class has the shortest.
We are all looking forward to selling the toys at the Children in Need toy sale this afternoon.
In maths Lions Class have been learning how to divide. They have certainly mastered the strategies and some children have even taken their learning outside! Can you see what this number sentence says?
Bonfire poems written this week are amazing! The children have used noun phrases and similes to give a super picture of the things they enjoyed on Bonfire Night. This is the poem we created together.
Silver, sparkly sparkler as bright as a flashlight,
Red, warm bonfire as shiny as a star,
Yummy, sweet chocolate as sweet as sugar,
Flashing, green firework as enormous as a bomb,
Delicious, amazing popcorn as buttery as toast.
This week in our weekly Aspirations Group we decided to learn about dinosaurs. This is a model of a dinosaur made by some of the children. What sort of dinosaur do you think it might be?
In maths we have been learning how to multiply two numbers together. We learn to do this in lots of different ways. First we learn a rhyme that helps us with our times tables, then we learn how to put counters into groups and finally how to draw and interpret arrays. (Arrays are patterns that represent a multiplication number sentence).
What an exciting week this has been for Lions Class!
On Wednesday the whole school flew off to spend a day learning about the culture and customs in India.
When the children got off the plane they had to queue up at Passport Control.
We were very lucky to have a special visit from Adeela who taught us some Bollywood dance steps.
Most children tried a taste of Indian food and we discovered that it was very hot and spicy!
Throughout the day we were very busy making Indian elephants out of paper plates, Indian flags,
sweet Barfi and Rangoli patterns.
A special ‘thank you’ to the parents and carers of children in Lions Class who came to support our assembly.
Well Done, Lions! As always you were amazing!
In English we are learning to read and write instructions. This was a great opportunity to combine learning with fun (and eating!). We made chocolate crispy buns with Mrs Farnen and Mrs Hartburn.
This week Lions Class have been learning how to collect and record information. We went out onto Chesterfield Road to conduct a traffic survey. We saw lots of cars and vans but no buses or bikes. We were very excited to see an ambulance go past!
This week Lions Class have been out and about in Eckington. They visited the local church and learnt lots of things about it. Everyone was brilliantly behaved !A special thank you to all the parents who came with us. Without you it wouldn’t be possible to go!
We have had a busy week in Lions class this week. Did you know that we have been writing our own poems about autumn and the fruits and vegetables that we see? Can you remember your poem?
We have also been reading, “The Day the Crayons Quit” by Drew Daywalt, you can hear this story online at
