It's been a terrific week in Violet 1 and 2, which started with a thoroughly enjoyable trip to Lord's cricket ground! Despite the rain, we all had a fantastic day and the children's excellent behavior did not go unnoticed. The day involved; playing cricket, having a tour of the ground, listening to former English cricketer Matt Prior and even eating lunch in one of the boxes.
On Tuesday there was a real buzz of excitement in Violet 1 and 2 as the children met their buddies for the first time! When the children are in Year 6 they will each have a reception child as their buddy. The children spent some time in Nursey this week getting to know their new young friends, I am sure the Year 5's will be excellent role models.
In English we have continued reading our class novel, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, we have also written some fantastic setting descriptions. In Topic we used maps to locate Brazil and other countries in South America, we looked at the physical geography features in these regions. Our Maths focus has been recapping decimals and applying our knowledge to solve problems.
We are very much looking forward to our orienteering trips to Hampstead Heath next week - remember packed lunches!
Have a wonderful weekend.
