Week beginning 14/10/19

Well done to our pupils of the week who were chosen for their descriptive journaling in maths. Great explanations!

This week in maths, we have been learning about finding the difference. We have also been practising our times tables.

In writing, we have been writing our own instructions. The children have been very imaginative.

In Art, we have been painting our canopic jars, they are beginning to look great.

In Science, we have been investigating what will happen to egg shells, when left for 1 hour in different liquids. We will find out the results next week.

Just a reminder, the children would like to show off their canopic jars and some of their topic learning after school on Thursday. Mr Holloway will be teaching that day, he will see the children out and then invite parents in for a few minutes to look at learning left out on the table. If you do not get the opportunity to come. Do not worry, we have parents evening on Monday and Tuesday next week, where you can see your child’s learning.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Well done to our pupil’s of the week who, showed great listening skills in RE. They remembered lots about the Hindu festival Janmashtami. One of our pupil’s was even inspired to do more learning at home.

In Writing, we have been innovating our text. We discussed the amount of pumpkins in supermarkets at the moment and explained that not everyone uses the pumpkins to carve for Halloween, pumpkins can be carved for other events or even just for food. We innovated the text, to How to carve a pumpkin for …….. (Children’s choice).

In maths, we have continued learning about adding and have been particularly focussing on bridging over 10.

In Art, we have been getting very creative. Despite wearing aprons, somehow we still managed to get covered in paint and Mod rock. However, the children had lots of fun, creating a painting for a competition for Poole light house – The Land above the clouds. We have been also finishing our canopic Jars.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for his creativity in his writing.

In Writing, we have been introduced to our new text which is a set of instructions. The children went out side and create obstacle courses through the Egyptian desert. They then had to guide their partner through using time conjunctions.

In PE, we have been learning how to jump, we have tried standing jumps, jumping from one foot to the other, running jumps and much more.

In Maths, we have been learning about adding. The children used resources to solve the problems and explained their methods beautifully.

In DT and Art, we have been making shadufs out of play-dough, straws and paper cups. We learnt about the mechanisms used to help Egyptians move water from the Nile. In Art, we started our canopic jar making.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Week beginning 23/9/19

Well done to our pupils of the week, who were chosen for their creative role play during our Egyptian day.

During the Egyptian day we learnt all about Tutankhamun’s tomb and the discovery of it. We discussed how we know it existed and imagined what it would of been like to have been there.

In our writing, we completed our suspense stories. The Egyptian day, really helped with our ideas.

In maths we have been learning about rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We have been putting this into real life context and thinking about when rounding might be useful.

In Music, we have been learning an Egyptian song about Tutankhamun. We are planning on sharing the song when we invite parents in, to see our learning.

In PSHE, we have discussed children’s rights. We discussed our rights to say how we think and feel. We looked at images and thought about our day and stood behind a picture that represent how we feel. We talked about our emotions and why we felt that way.

Thank you for all the jars we have been receiving. This means we can now start our canopic jar making.

We hope you had a lovely weekend.

Well done to our pupils of the week. In our whole class reading we have been focussing on vocab, inference and predicting. The two children who were chosen, applied new vocab in our writing sessions.

In music we have been practising playing instruments to ABBA tunes. We have been learning about tempo and pitch.

In Maths, we have been looking at continuing patterns that are increasing and decreasing. We have looked at Thousands, hundreds, tens and ones and observed to see which changes in theses patterns. For example: Is it increasing by thousands or hundreds?

In Science, we have been learning about the human body and the organs in the digestive system.

Next week, we would like to start our canopic jars. Please can all children bring in a container with a lid. this could be an empty large pot of natural yoghurt with a plastic clear lid. I will eat my way through as many as possible, so I can have spares in case you are struggling.

Have I wonderful weekend.
