Otter Class have been really enjoying our swimming lessons this term and have been lucky to work with King's College in some of our PE lessons alongside our Dance topic. We have also been learning Latin music, exploring warm and cool colours in Art and looking at rivers and mountains in Geography.
In Maths we have been looking at the column method and multiplication. Any practice at home would be great. We have been learning new spelling patterns in school and the children are doing much better in their spelling tests, so please keep encouraging Spelling Shed.

We have had a busy couple of weeks in Otter Class in the lead up to Christmas. In Maths, we have been learning our times tables and realising that we can use facts we already know to help work out facts we don’t know. In English, we have enjoyed Writing about ‘How to Train your Dragon’ and we have been practising using adverbials to make our writing more interesting. In Design Technology lessons, we have learnt how we can keep food fresh through different techniques and also looked at the information that comes on food packaging.
We have lots of exciting things happening next week including Christmas lunch, parties and pantomimes. We hope you can join us Wednesday for our carol service at St Andrew’s church, we have some great singers in Otter Class.
Merry Christmas and have I hope everyone has a good break.

We have had great start to this half term in Otter Class, finishing our History work on the Saxons, Vikings and Romans. We have really enjoyed learning about them and have retained so much knowledge. We are now looking forward to looking at some Art and DT!
We have loved our sessions with Somerset Cricket that are now on Mondays, where we have practised our bating and catching skills. If anyone really enjoyed the sessions, you can join our new after school club starting on Monday for years 2,3 and 4. Also, well done to the children in Otter Class who represented the school in Football and Tag Rugby recently, you have done us proud.
Finally, we had our class assembly on Wednesday, where we shared our learning from History, Music and Science so far this year. It was be great to see so many people coming to watch and the children spoke and sang brilliantly.

Otter Class have made a really good start back to school this term. We enjoyed a trip to Somerset Museum and learnt lots about the Anglo-Saxons in a workshop where we acted, painted and wrote in runes. We also enjoyed a trail around the museum and even got a prize for completing it!
In History, we have continued studying the Anglo-Saxons invasion of Britain and linked this to our Writing using Beowulf. In Maths, we have been looking at place value of numbers and comparing/ordering them.
For things to do at home we have got Spelling Shed with the weekly spellings that will be tested on a Friday and also Times Tables Rockstars to practise their multiplication skills.
Thank you for all your support!
