On Tuesday afternoon, we all went out for our races.
Everyone took part in a running race, a skipping race and an egg and spoon race.
We have been discussing the Olympic Games as part of our topic learning and we were able to explain the Olympic values and how we could show them in our own competitions.
Have a look at some photos from the event.
On Friday, to celebrate Pentecost, we took part in the Thy Kingdom Come event at school.
As a class, we visited the school prayer garden and discussed things that are happening at the moment at school, in the wider world and in our own lives that we would like to say a prayer for.
Back in the classroom, we wrote our class prayer. Have a look at the ideas we came up with as well as our finished prayer.

In RE this week we have looked at the story of Moses. We have re-told the story in our own words and Sherwood Class have produced some fantastic and creative pieces. Have a look!
This week during home learning, members of Sherwood class have started looking at some different Polar explorers. I am receiving some fantastic biographies about Earnest Shackleton. Take a look at some of our work here.
During home learning this week, members of Sherwood Class have researched and completed fact files about how people have adapted to life in the Arctic. These are excellent and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Have a look at some of our reports here.
Members of Sherwood class have worked really hard to celebrate Remembrance at home this year. As well as producing poppies for the Church display, I have received some fantastic poems and images of crafts completed during home learning. Have a look at some of each other's fantastic work.
All the children now have a selection of reading books allocated to them on Bug Club. We would like them to work through these around 1 book per week. I will be able to check each Friday what the children have been reading and complete their bookmarks. Where the books offer a quiz at the end, please have a go at these as it will help practise our comprehension skills.
The Bug Club can be accessed through the ActiveLearn website at:
The children will all be bringing their individual login details home.
Please let me know if you have any issues logging in or accessing the reading.
Additionally, I will be sending a further chapter of our class book home this week. We will go over the chapter together in class next week.
This week we have started looking at our new topic of The Ice Age. We have looked at the Polar regions and where they are on the globe as well as the features of a polar climate. On Thursday, we looked at the Last Ice Age that covered the UK and completed some Then and Now sketches to show the similarities and differences in the landscape.
The children have worked really hard over the last couple of weeks producing poems and artwork linked to harvest. The poems were written on the theme of 'How nature helps the harvest' and the children enjoyed learning about farming techniques from each other. We used autumn colours from the school grounds to inspire our artwork and have produced some lovely watercolours. Well done to the whole class, you have worked fantastically!
This week we have looked at Tudor fashion in our History lesson and have begun to sketch elements of Tudor houses in Art and DT. The children have really enjoyed looking at the historical designs and have produced some careful sketches and detailed portraits. Have a look at some of our fantastic portraits of Queen Elizabeth I.
Sherwood Class have really enjoyed our first week of lessons.
We have particularly enjoyed beginning to read our class novel, Spy Master and are really excited to continue this in our English lessons next week!
We have learnt a lot about the early Tudor times; including The Battle of Bosworth and King Henry VII.
On Monday morning, we will have a box available for you to return any school reading books that you may have at home. The children will not need to return their previous reading diaries.
Have a lovely weekend.
You should come to school wearing the appropriate sports clothing for P.E. You do not need to bring your uniform.
