This week we have been learning about how to write letters. We hope to use our new found skills to write letters to all the people we love. Today we have been outside searching for interesting words we can use in our sentences.
We have such a busy week this week in Griffins class. On Tuesday we were lucky enough to visit St Giles Church to sing some fun seasonal songs. We also got to learn a little about how Christians celebrate Christmas.
Also, we have been busy getting ready, rehearsing and performing our Christmas play, Penguin Pete. We have had great fun and really enjoyed being up on stage.
This week we had a special lesson learning about the job of an engineer. We found out about how they design houses and make them strong and sturdy. We then designed and built our own towers using spaghetti sticks and trying out different construction methods.
Recently we had our trip to Warwick Castle as part of our Towers, Tunnels and Turrets topic. We had such a great day out. We learned about many things, from who has inhabited the castle down the years to how the castle was built to defend from enemies.
Particular highlights of the day included the birds of prey show and especially our climb right to the top of Guy's Tower and the spectacular views on offer from the summit.
