Week beginning 16/04/18
It was great seeing the children after the Easter holidays and hearing all about what they have been up to. There were so many stories that we decided to write about our holidays in a similar style to a blog.
In Maths we have continued learning about shape and have begun to really practise for our SATs.
In Geography we have been learning about the countries in the United Kingdom. We set the classroom up as a plane and stopped of at different countries sampling food and drink, looking at the Patron Saints, listening to national anthems, watching traditional dances and much more. The children seem to really enjoy this.
In RE we have been learning more about Judaism. We explored lots of things that might be used by a Jewish person and said what we see, think and wonder.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Week beginning: 26.03.18
Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for his risk taking in maths.
This week we have been helping Easter Bunny to write instructions about how to plant a plant. We discussed different sentence starters, adverbs, adjectives and using subordination and co-ordination to help Easter Bunny to be successful with his planting.
In PE we have been learning how to bowl, we practised stepping forward, balancing and and aiming.
In maths we have been learning all about 2d and 3d shapes. The children also created their own shape pictures.
In art we have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy and other artists that use natural resources. We compared art work by looking at patterns, materials used and colour, we then went on a nature walk around school to collect our own materials and created different art.
In RE we have been learning about the importance of praying for Christians.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
Week beginning: 19.03.18
Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her resilience in her writing. She always does her best and loves to take risks in order to make her writing more interesting.
This week we were really inspired by the Author visit! The Author told the children about a little girl who had to venture into a forest to rescue her dog. However, he never told us what happened next. So we pretended to jump into the forest, we then imagined a character that we might meet in the forest and a problem that might occur. There were lots of great ideas.
In Maths we have been learning about statistics, we have been drawing and interpreting, pictographs and tally charts.
In RE we have been learning about prayer and how the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to prey. We thought about what kind of things we say when we pray and the importance of resilience.
Week beginning: 12/3/18
Well done to our pupils of the week. They really impressed me in their writing as you will see below! One from last week when we were writing acrostic poems about Spring and one from this week.
In writing we have been looking at the book The Day the Crayons Quit! and looking at the language they have used to persuade the reader to listen to them. We then had a go at trying to persuade Easter bunny not to hide Easter eggs in horrible places, like the toilet! YUK!
In mathematics we have continued learning about division and we are now starting to look at statistics.
This week in Science we started our investigation to see why plants grow better in Spring. Do they need sun and water to grow?
In RE we have continued to learn about Moses and the importance of Passover for Jewish people.
On Monday we will be introducing a new homework book. More information will be given on Monday.
Thank you for all of your support,
All children this week persevered and did their best in their practise assessments, but this weeks pupil of the week was particularly resilient. Well done!
Along with assessments, we have been looking at acrostic poems. The children came up with a wonderful acrostic poem as a whole class:
Sun gazing beautifully on the soft green grass.
Precious, glistening water, dripping slowly from the sky.
Revealed wonders of the beautiful, fresh rainbow flowers.
Incredible blossoms, drifting lightly when the wind tickles them.
New, surprising and delicate animals springing to life.
Great blankets of golden sweet corn, dancing gracefully in the wind.
We have also been really exploring Spring by looking at the flowers that are beginning to grow and we have started to plan an investigation in Science to find out why plants grow in Spring.
We were lucky this week to have a cricket coach come in and deliver a cricket session. We were shown different games we could play to help develop our balance and agility.
Please note, I have given all of the children their individual spellings that they need to work on. Please practise these every week at home. These are not the spellings I will be testing the children on, they are just to help your child.
I will be testing the children on the following spellings:
badge, bridge, edge, dodge, fudge, age, huge, change, charge, bulge, village
The /dʒ/ sound spelt as ge and dge at the end of words.
I will be recapping 2,5 and 10 times tables and linking these to division, for example:
2 x 5 = 10 so 10 divided by 5 = 2
Thank you for all of your support,
