Mulberry Class News

12th November 2018

Mulberry class have had a great start to the new half term.  Last week we focused on Remembrance and what it means.  We learned that whilst this year is a special Remembrance Day, as it is the centenary of the end of the First World War, we also need to remember all those who have helped our country and played a part at home and abroad during all conflicts.

Children each completed a guided drawing of poppies and took great care during each step.  I am sure you will agree they did a wonderful job and they are proudly displayed on the wall outside our classroom.

We also created acrostic poems using the Remembrance theme and I was most impressed with the thoughtful sentences and ideas the children had.

Excitement was in the air on Thursday as children were each surprised with a letter addressed to them from a child in Miss Young’s class in Calgary.  They had great fun reading the letters and learning a little about their new pen pals.  We hope to write our replies soon so that they can reach Canada before Christmas.

Our topic for the next few weeks will be Europe but we first looked a little closer to home and during our first lesson learned a little about the British Isles.  We look forward to finding out more about the countries across the North Sea and English Channel!

During this half term, Mulberry class will be enjoying sessions with Newcastle United Foundation.  Children across both year groups have also taken the opportunity to join ICT, tennis and multi-skills clubs after school.
