Here’s something to make with your little explorers! All you need are two toilet rolls or a kitchen roll cut in half to make a pair of binoculars! Decorate them with coloured paper, paints, felt pens or stickers. You can even attach a piece of string or ribbon so your child can hang them round their neck. Great to take outside in the garden or for a walk in the woods to see what they can spot!

I know it’s still November, but just in case you want to think ahead to Christmas and what your children could make as presents… Here is a really easy fudge recipe that would make a great gift for someone with a sweet tooth. It’s basically marshmallows and icing sugar…yum! Try not to eat it all while you’re making it!

In Land Class last week we completed our Stone Age story books and it is good to see how proud the children are of their work. We continued our work on subtraction in maths and we have also been completing both maths and reading assessments. Everybody worked very hard on these, particularly as it was the first time they have done something like this at the junior school. Welldone!
We enjoyed a Children in Need themed day on Friday with our maths and English both fitting around this theme and we have also had an afternoon discussing anti-bullying. We even tried to design our own ‘kind’ playground.
Population Class were busy last week making Iron Age round houses! They made them out of art straws and then painted them to look more realistic. Last week, we completed our assessments. Despite it being quite a challenging week, the children used their JONK qualities to try their best – we would like to say a big well done to all of Population Class for working so hard! We are really proud of you.
In English, we have been reading more of the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We have written diary entries and even pretended to be farmers deciding what to
do. The children have created amazing pastel drawings of the Iron Man which, I’m sure you’ll agree, look very effective!
