What an amazing start to the year!
The children thoroughly enjoyed the events of Monday 11th September when a time traveller visited Farley and took the children and staff on an Anglo Saxon adventure. Children learnt how to make beeswax candles, decorative pieces of metal work, coloured inks for manuscripts, weaving cloth etc. After a thoroughly modern lunch, the children then took on the role of archaeologists and examined artifacts from the 800’s.
The children have thrown themselves in to the Talk for Writing process again this year and are almost fluent in their first text, Alien Landing. Do ask your child to perform the text, complete with actions. They are also learning poetry for National Poetry day and are looking forward to reciting this for your pleasure in due course.
Maths is now divided into 5 different groups to reduce numbers in the classes so I don’t actually teach all the children in 5B. However, as always, I know that the children will work hard and diligently to ensure that they achieve. To this end, please do keep up the hard work on the times tables.
We are looking at evolution and life cycles this term. We hope to arrange a school trip in the second part of the term to tie in with this area of the science curriculum.
