Teaching Assistant- Mr. Nobes
Our Class Saint
Our class is named after St. Michael the Archangel and warrior saint. St.Michael helps us to make the right choices. He helps us when we have to make a hard decision or when we are tempted to do wrong. St. Michael is a protector and defender of the Church. He is there to protect us- physically, emotionally, or spiritually - he is at our side.
What will we be learning this Autumn term 1 2022?
We have lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities this half term.
We have just started our Class read 'Rumblestar' by Abi Elphinstone which is full of magic and adventure. We're enjoying it so far :)
We are also embarking into the world of 'Light' and learning all about shadows. We will also be finding out about different astronauts and having a Space Camp :D
We will be exploring.....
Special People- Neil Armstrong
This half term
This half term the children will be learning about 'Creation and the story of Abraham'. The children will hear and learn about some important stories from the Book of Genesis. They will explore some important images of God found in these stories and consider what it means for human beings to be made in the image and likeness of God.
This half term we will be investigating 'Light' and looking at different light sources, shadows, reflection and the importance of keeping safe in the sun.
