Sapphire class have PE on Mondays and Fridays, although it is advisable to have PE kit in school every day, as we are often able to have extra PE opportunities with outside providers.

Homework and spellings will always be set on a Monday and spellings will be tested the following Monday.  We also ask that you read five times a week with your child and FIVERS will be checked off every Friday.

Term 2

Sapphire Class really enjoyed Arts week. Our focus was Maths in art and we chose to explore the artwork of Piet Mondrian. Our topic this term has been ‘What Lurks in the Shadows’ and we have been busy investigating light in Science and during our WOW day we have enjoyed making and performing the story of Rama and Sita with shadow puppets. In R.E. we continued to learn about Diwali and the other religious festivals Eid-al-fitr, Passover and Christmas.

Term 1

Sapphire Class learned so much during our Bright Sparks topic. We learned how to make a simple circuit with a switch in Science. We visited ‘We the Curious’ where we made scribble bots using our science knowledge. As part of our topic we found out about several different inventors, including Alexander Graham Bell and the Wright Brothers. During our WOW fay investigated what would make the best paper aeroplane. In D.T, we designed, made and evaluated a torch using a simple circuit.

Take a look at our work, displays and sometimes us. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
