Week Beginning 1/7/19

Well done to our pupils of the week, who were chosen for their resilience in their art work and their fantastic behaviour, when walking to the Avon River.

This week in Maths, we have been learning to measure perimeter and area of shapes.

In writing we have been looking at character descriptions and writing different character descriptions for wishing tales.

In RE we have been learning about temptation. It was interesting to see how many children could not avoid the big red box that said do not touch. We linked this to the Adam and Eve story and thought about how that links to the way we behave.

In Art, we have been learning different sketching techniques and using this to help us sketch the Avon River.

Next week we have arts week, please ensure your child has an old shirt/top to use.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Week beginning 24/7/19

Well don to our pupils of the week, who have been demonstrating lots of resilience with their learning.

This week in science we have been investigating core about changing states. We learnt about condensation, evaporation. We watched what happened to the water as it was heated in a kettle and then what happened when the steam hit a cold tray.

In writing we had a box with hidden clues, as to what our new text was about. The children pulled out the clues and then engaged with the text.

In maths we looked at measure. We measured and compared the heights of the children in the class.

Well done to our pupil of the week, who was chosen for applying taught skills in new writing.

This week in writing, we completed our boxing up patter for our chosen text and begun to innovate the text.

In maths we have begun to learn about measure. We have been looking at how scales can go up in different amounts and how sometimes the tallest jar does not always have the largest capacity.

In topic we have been learning how to find 12 famous rivers using a map.

In science we have been completing our changing states investigations.

We were very lucky to have a visitor come in last week, who talked to the class about the importance of not wasting water.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend.

What a wonderful start back after half term.

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her resilience and hard work in her science.

The children took part in an immersion day where they explored rivers. They thought about questions they would like to find out, they shared what they knew, discussed bigger issues to do with some countries having a lack of water and found information using the chrome books.

We also had a recap in gymnastics. We practised different types of rolls. Some of the children were really pleased with their own personal development within this session.

In maths we completed our final review on money. We have certainly improved!

In writing we have begun our imitation stage. We looked at our focus discussion text and created a text map. We also looked at the language used in the text.

Week beginning 20/5/19

Well done to our pupil of the week, who was chosen for their resilience in their writing.

This week, in writing, we have been inventing our own adventure stories. The children have come up with some great ideas.

In Science we have been looking at changing states. We investigated what happens when chocolate is placed over different temperatures of water.

In Maths we have continued to learn about money. We looked at what happens if you shared the cost of an item but one paid 4 times as much as another. See if your child can remember how to do this using a bar model.

In PE we have been creating our own dances. We then put our dances together to create a whole class dance. This was a collaborative dance, invented by your children.

In art we have been looking at Maya mask designs. We painted our masks, and reviewed our original design.

In topic we have been looking at what the Maya and what they eat. We linked this to our science learning.

We hope you have a wonderful half term holiday.
