Welcome to Topaz Class

Week ending Friday 5th April 2019

Well done to our Spring term trophy winners!

We have had a great week filled with lots of fun Easter activities in Topaz class!

This week we have been making our Easter cards to send to our family. We had lots of fun making our cards. We used our knowledge of how to find a quarter of a shape to create the chicks for our Easter card.   We used our scissor skills to cut out the shapes and snip a quarter, we are sure you will love them!

We loved making Easter nests this week using our knowledge of weight to weigh our ingredients to make them. We can’t wait to see if they taste as good as they look!

We had lots of fun taking part in an Easter egg hunt! We loved looking for eggs and when we found an egg we helped our friends to find one too.

 In RE this week we listened to the Easter story and sequenced the story using pictures. We tried to write about the different parts of the Christian story.  

In English this week we have worked really hard on our writing. We started by writing about the chicks hatching and how we felt when we held them. We tried to make sure we used capital letters, full stops and lots of lovely adjectives to make our writing interesting. We also wrote a recount of our fabulous trip to Colchester zoo. We focused on writing in the past tense and using time order words.

Wow! What a fantastic trip to Colchester zoo we had!  It was a lovely way to end our around the world topic. We loved seeing all the animals and learning about the different African animals and their habitats.  We really enjoyed exploring all the artefacts and guessing where they came from. We also learnt how to say some words in Swahili! We had so much fun feeding the elephants.


We hope you all have a lovely well deserved Easter break. There is no homework for the Easter holiday but here are some suggestions of fun activities you may want to do! Enjoy!

Please continue to read with your children. It is important that the children practice this skill.  Reading underpins the whole of the school curriculum.
