Alfred the great  (25.9.20)

Do you know who Alfred the great is?  This was the question we put to the children this week as part of our topic work.  We discovered he was the first King of Wessex and defeated the Vikings.  He also introduced coins to be used to buy things, set up schools for boys and gave the Vikings part of England to stop the fighting.  We think he was definitely great!  We have also found out about Viking longships, where they lived and what they ate. 

Music was lots of fun looking at the tempo and instruments used in Abba's `Dancing Queen,' we also couldn't resist having a dance.  We also held our school parliament elections.  The children presented their manifesto before the class voted for the MP that they wanted to represent our class.

Partitioning numbers in Maths and looking at adjectives in English as well as testing out how fit we are in P.E. 

Finishing the week by starting to make Christmas cards (well it is only 3 months to Christmas).

Have a sunny weekend.


Welcome to Phoenix Class  

We have now completed our second week in Phoenix.  Everyone has settled into their new class really well, (including the teachers).  It is brilliant to be back with our friends and we are all eager to learn, after such a tricky time.

This half term our topic will be Vikings and already we have looked at when the Vikings were around by completing a History timeline.  In Maths we have focused on rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.  The children are also practising their 3 times table and as part of their homework, please encourage them to go onto TT Rockstars so they can practise their times tables.  

Please check the class dojo as we will be updating this on a regular basis.  We can also be contacted via dojo if you have any queries/questions.  Thank you
