Another week goes by and it won’t be long until Christmas is upon us! Our thoughts have already turned to this year’s Christmas Show – Bethlehem the Musical – and we have all been given scripts and parts. Please do encourage your child to practice their lines over the weekend – I suspect a fair bit of time will be devoted to putting the show together over the next week and a half so it’d be great if by Monday they have a good idea of what they need to say and when.

Over happenings in Fox Class this week:

  • We have been looking at area, surface area and volume this week in Maths as part of our Geometric reasoning unit
  • In Literacy, we have been using our research (last weekend’s homework) to plan an information text based on recycling.
  • On Monday afternoon in PE, we practised Yoga and Mindfulness – Tuesday’s PE session with Mrs Bayly was all about the Grease Lightening – very funny!
  • We also took the time this week to have a look at what Oil is, where it comes from and how it has been formed in our Topic session this week.

Homework
Start to learn your lines of the Christmas play!

Literacy
Gather as many facts as you can about a renewable energy source – wind, wave, tidal, hydroelectric, solar power, geothermal – whichever interests you most, pick one and find out as much as you can.
Here’s a good place to start: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/geography/energy_resources/energy_rev2.shtml
