Happy Christmas from Spruce!

We have come to the end of a very eventful term.  Spruce have coped admirably with the new routines and systems and are now ready for a well-desreved break!

As a class, we have tried hard to remember all the things we have studied this term:

  • stained glass windows
  • basketball in PE
  • coordinates in maths
  • volcanoes
  • Renoir’s Umbrellas
  • Nicholas the Sweep story writing
  • Spiderwick
  • DT games
  • fractions
  • the geography of our school in art
  • map readaing in PE
  • animal classification
  • paragraphs and punctuation
  • Haunted Mansion in French
  • Buddhism
  • prime, cube and square numbers
  • daily routines in French
  • Jigsaw lessons
  • celebrating differences
  • Zones of Regulation
  • explanation texts (The Snoozatron!)
  • long multiplication
  • talent show in music……..

The list could go on and on!

The children have shown wonderful behaviour for learning skills throughout the term and it has been a pleasure to teach them. Many thanks for your kind words of support and for your Christmas gifts.

From Mr Burgess and Miss Bernstein.
