In RE this week, we have been researching Christian peace makers. Most of us chose Owen Thomas who fought in WW1 and lived locally in Devizes. We are finding out how he followed Jesus’ teachings to prevent conflict in a peaceful way. We are continuing with this next week….
In topic work, we carried out an investigation to see how different types of bird’s beaks have evolved so that they can pick up different types of food more effectively . First of all we made some predictions before trying out pegs, tweezers, chopsticks etc (beaks) with different food (pipe cleaners, play dough etc). We recorded our results and wrote up our experiment later in the week.
As requested by school council, our classroom has had a sprinkling of Christmas decorations to get us in the festive spirit! On Thursday, with Mrs Butler, we made paper chains, snowflakes and beautiful hanging baubles. We think they look brilliant!
For our class advent calendar this year, Mrs Wren has given us some sweets but also we open a card each day. It reveals an act of kindness which the whole class try to achieve the following day. So far we have had: share a smile, give a compliment, pick up litter and lay the table at home.
