Two things in particular made the London Frost Fair of 1684 very special.  The first is that out of all of the 24 recorded frost fairs in London the ice in this year was the thickest (28 centimetres  and lasted the longest (nine weeks – more than this term).  

Look at the link below can you work out why the second reason why the 1684 Frost Fair was special?

Hello Thornham

Another great week of learning again!

Half of the class were finally able to swim this week.  Well done to the first two groups who swam on Monday. Mr Holmes said you were all fantastic and you all enjoyed yourselves.

A special shout out for Aaishah who worked very hard with her swimming.

A special mention to the whole class for their work in Maths, particularly learning number bonds to 10.  We have enjoyed different activities, songs and games helping us remember our numbers bonds off by heart.

English – As a class we have created a new story based on our model text ‘ Whatever Next’.  We have had some great ideas and thought about our sentences carefully.  We are now preparing to write our own stories next week.

We had another great PE lesson with our coach Mrs Woods.  The children enjoyed using basketballs to practise bouncing and catching.  We then played some team games practising our new skills.  Great team work Thornham!

Alex and Aaishah have brought in some lovely homework pictures this week.

Aaishah’s pictures

Science

Electricity

Thinking about electricity; what life would be like without it, its advantages and disadvantages, conserving it, using it to control a machine you have designed.

Can you design  own machine powered by electricity to do a job you dislike doing. 

 

PE

In school we are continuing to learn ball skills – throwing and catching and aiming at a target.  If you can please practise with a range of balls or bean bag aiming at a target. Remember to watch the target as you throw. Use an underarm action.

If you can get some exercise once a day – maybe a walk or bile ride with an adult.

 

In addition there are activities on Education City for you to have a go at.

Have a great week

Posted on Friday, November 13th, 2020

Hello Thornham

A great well done to the whole class this week.

Unfortunately we were unable to swim this week but as I write we are still swimming on Monday morning (16th November).

If your child is swimming this week, please bring your full kit, swimming costume, swimming hat , towel.  You may bring googles but these are not essential.  For children’s health and safety, earrings will need to be taken out.

Remembrance

This week Thornham Bubble have been learning why we wear poppies and the story of the Unknown Warrior. We sat in silence for two minutes to remember all the soldiers who have died. I am very proud of the children who showed enormous respect.  During our Art lesson we made our own poppies. Have a look at some of the ones we created. The children used a template to draw around, cut them out and decorated with tissue paper, glitter and  crayons.

 

 

PE – We had another great lesson with our sports coach Mrs Woods. This week we practised our throwing and catching skills and aiming at targets.  We enjoyed playing games trying to hit a target throwing balls underarm.

Over and Above

I am very pleased to say we have had several children who have gone Over and Above this week…

Isabella – who is working hard learning with her phonics, spellings, handwriting and maths work. She has drawn a fantastic rocket too for her homework!

Olivia for great maths work this week.

Ignas for his great work in phonics working with Mrs Wiggs.

Devon and Violet  for their fantastic homework. Here are some pictures.

Violet’s rocket and she decided to make her own Poppy picture.

Here is another copy of the Homework grid – please choose an activity to complete.

Hello Thornham

This first week back has flown by in which the children have settled back into their learning and enjoyed being back with their friends.

We had a great PE lesson with our PE coach.  The weather was perfect for practising our ball skills and moving around safely.  We look forward to next week when we will playing games using the new skills we have learnt.

In maths we have learnt how to add using a number line. We have been practising using bigger numbers.

 

 

In English we completed our Cold Task before learning our new text. We had a go at writing the beginning of a journey story. We all worked hard sounding out our words and making sure our writing makes sense.

 

We also completed our 50 squares for our class reward! Well done to everyone for making good choices and working hard!  As a result we enjoyed some extra playtime in the sunshine!

Here is a copy of this terms homework grid.  Have a look and choose an activity or two to complete each week.
