Hello to all the Cedar class children and parents!
It's been a whirlwind of a term so far and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down any time soon!
The class have been busy with settling in to a new year and new work as well as getting used to a new 'foreign' teacher who speaks with a funny accent and uses some strange words, but they have been great and have made me feel really welcome! I think we've all had a few laughs along the way!
The class enjoyed the topic on Space in the first half term and many of them wrote some lovely pieces about their journey to space. I hope that many of you got to read them at parents evening. I was particularly happy that so many of you commented that their writing had improved, that's exactly what we want!
Right now we are doing the story of Beowulf and looking at the Anglo Saxons - this has really captured their imaginations and they are enjoying this topic immensely. They all enjoyed their visit to the Anglo-Saxon village on Monday. I hope to be posting some of their work soon on this page, so keep an eye out for that.
Science has become a real favourite with the class as we are trying to let them have a 'hands on' experience with discovering different forces this term, they regularly ask when we are doing Science again and that is so encouraging!
Thank you all for your support, encouragement and interest in your child's education. Lastly, just a quick quote from one of my favourite people - "Education is one of the most powerful tools we can use to change the world." (Nelson Mandela)
