Today we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. The costumes were amazing! We have spent our day creating our own story boards based on books by Frank Cotterell-Boyce and Steven Lenton where we made our animal characters come to life. Our animals have very interesting jobs!
Sky Class enjoyed their first Forest School session on Friday. They explored their environment, finding plenty of places to hide during a game of hide and seek. There were some very innovative hiding places. We worked together as a team in games of trust. We enjoyed the mild weather and the mud! Next time, please…
To celebrate the Year of the Pig, Sky Class participated in some traditional Chinese dancing. We learnt a dance sequence where we had to use fans and then worked together in teams to make the lion dance! It was a very colourful sight. Well done Sky Class.

We have focused on working together to create some imaginative sequences including balances and travelling. We have also solved problems to create balances using each other to counter balance – very tricky!
In November, children wore their slippers in school to help raise money for the homeless. We enjoyed wearing our warm and cosy slippers knowing that we helping others at the same time.
Our half -term task was to design and create a Roman helmet. Sky Class did not disappoint! We each presented our design to the whole class, explaining how we made our helmets and what materials we used. There were many inventive creations, each one different to the next.
On Thursday 18th October, Sky Class were lucky enough to be taught some Indian dancing. We learnt some great moves which we put together to create a super dance. We now do this as a warm up in P.E.!
