- What have Rimon class been up to this week? 28 Sep 18
After another short week, Rimon class have managed to squeeze in lots of learning.
In Literacy, we have been experimenting with different adjectives to describe the Antarctic landscape, while some of us have explored it through messy play and sensory journeys. Then we met Frank Worsley, the captain of Endurance. We explored the many different emotions he might be feeling shipwrecked on ice caps in the Weddell Sea. Now, Rimon have begun drafting a letter as a crew member, writing home to England.
In History, we looked at time lining key events in Shackleton’s life, and our own. While in geography, we learnt the continents of the world!
In Maths, we have been continuing to work on our place value and number skills. Some of the different areas this week have been: number bonds to 20, decimal places and distinguishing between numbers 1-5 and lots.
Our Middah this week was ‘thank you.’ We also learnt all about the importance of sukkot, and made a miniature sukkah with lego. We have enjoyed eating our lunch in the sukkah and were lucky enough to have a special story from Miss Claire.
I am looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday!

Welcome to Rimon Class’ blog!
This week in Rimon class, we have been continuing to explore what Antarctica is like. After our journey through icy cold winds and snow, we decided we would like to be explorers. We wrote letters to Shackleton asking him to let us go on his expedition. Then we came up with items to pack in our suitcase, describing them with interesting adjectives. Some pupils developed their vocabulary through sensory journeys going under, over and through icebergs and tunnels!
In Maths, we have been practising our number work experimenting with different resources and images – we are experts in counting with dienes, place value counters, pebbles and even penguins!
Our Middah this week was ‘sorry’ We also learnt all about the importance of Yom Kippur, where Miss Danielle helped us practise saying sorry using the four-part apology in Jewish Studies. This will be useful for helping us in apologise in the future.
In Art, we created some beautiful pictures inspired by two different artists. We experimented with pattern, texture and colour and are hoping to hang them in our new Gesher Art corner.
We have also made some place for our sukkah, which we are looking forward to eating in next week.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!
