Week beginning: 19/11/18

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen because she is always on task, listening well and applying new skills in her learning (Ralph the risk taker!). She wrote a fantastic poem about London.

This week in writing we have been looking at features of a non-chronological report and we have continued to learn the chocolate information text of by heart.

In maths this week we have been learning about division. We have been looking at dividing into groups and groups of.

In Art we have continued to complete our painting of cityscapes. They look amazing!

In PE we have been continuing our dance routines.

In RE we have been discussing celebration and looking at different things Hindus might celebrate such as the birth of Krishna. We then acted out the story.

Please note, on Thursday after school, we will be inviting parents first, into the classroom to look at our art and poetry and then into the computing area to see our significant buildings (Hopefully) light up!

Have a lovely weekend!

Well done for our pupil of the week who was chosen for her creativity in her problem solving.

This week in computing and science we have been so lucky to have Mr Allen come in to show us some exciting things you can do with computer programming. The children then had a go at putting together a circuit.

In Maths we have been learning about different strategies to multiply and divide. For instance 11 x 6 is the same as 10 x 10 + 1 x 6. Or 60 + 6.

In Art we have been continuing our city scapes, using Ton Schulten a Dutch painters art work to help give us ideas.

In PE we have been continuing learning different skills for football.

Well done for persevering with the homework. It looks like some children picked up the wrong second sheet for English. So for those who used the internet to find the answers well done and thank you.

I have been handing out different extension challenges for those children who have been asking for a challenge. If you feel they would like a challenge please ask.

Week Beginning: 5/11/18

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for his resilience, focus and communication during our electricity afternoon, it was clear he had learnt lots from the session.

In writing this week we have been learning about embedded clauses and also alliteration. We had a go at innovating the first verse of our focus poem.

In Maths we have been continuing to solve word problems. This has been quite tricky but we have enjoyed the challenge.

In Science we have been exploring electricity. The children had a go at creating circuits. They explored the school to find electrical items and recorded these. They had a go at writing electrical symbols and and also sorting objects that might require electricity to work.

In art we have begun to look at the art of Ton Schulten a Dutch artist. We looked at his impressionist art of city settings and started to design our own in a similar way.

Have a lovely weekend

Week beginning 29/10/18

Congratulations to our pupil’s of the week who were chosen for their resilience in there writing, there writing was the most improved. Well done!

Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term. We have had a great start back. The children have been reading and learning the poem ‘The Cave of Curiosity’.

To get them excited, we created a cave for the children to go into and find lots of curiosities. They then came up with abstract nouns to describe what they had seen.

 

In Maths we have continued to learn about addition and subtraction. We have then looked at applying what we have learnt to solve problems in different ways.

Friday Immersion day – During the day we found facts about Europe. We visited different areas with facts about different countries in Europe, including England. Next the children were shown a map of England showing light pollution. We discussed why certain areas had more light pollution than others. We then focused on London and chose a significant building in London that would cause light pollution to create using junk modelling.

In computing we have begun to look at algorithms and computer programming.

Have a wonderful weekend.
