Year 4 have made a fantastic start to the term. We have been enjoying making Roman mosaics in art which will be finished next week…I know all the children are very excited about this. You will be too when you see them.
The children have started some more structured routines whilst enjoying some lovely immersion lessons in both maths and English. The pictures attached to this post show 4WW doing some exciting drama during English yesterday.
From all of us in the Year 4 team, we would like to congratulate every child for their hard working attitude and fantastic resilience during this strange start to a new academic year. We have no doubt that we all have a wonderful year.
The Year 4 team.
We have had a fun filled, action packed first full week and we have lots to tell you about.
In English, we have been learning about poems and how to write one; we have a poetry tool kit to help us. We are reading a poem/book called ‘Cloudbusting’, which is very engaging. We have written a Truth poem, and a poem about ‘Lucy Bronze’ and we have improved a poem called ‘I Like’ by adding pre and post modification to the nouns.This subject is great fun and I am looking forward to learning more!
In maths this week, we have learnt how to round to 10, 100 and 1000. We also explored place value using grids to help us. We are now experts at reading the different columns, as well as writing and rounding the number. We are looking forward to next week so we can learn more!
What a fun week it has been in year 6!
We have been studying how the end of world war 1 impacted across Europe, what happened during the Christmas truce, In science, we have learnt how and why we classify animals.
All of the year 6 team have been super impressed with how the children have started.
Have a great weekend.
Another fantastic week in year 1.
This week the children have enjoyed making their own split pin people in our construction area. They had to use careful cutting and joining skills independently.
It was a week of firsts as we had our first PE lesson and met Jigsaw Jack. Jack is going to help us with our PSHE learning this year.
In Maths we have been busy sorting objects and representing numbers in a variety of ways. We have also been busy practicing our number formations.
In art we have carried on drawing self portraits and also creating sculp tures of faces using natural materials.
Goldilocks and The Three Bears
Wow, what a busy and full week it has been! Your children have all done so well for their first full week at school and will probably be quite tired!
We have been focusing on the story of ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’, which is a very popular story with the children. We have enjoyed pretending to be Goldilocks and tasting some delicious porridge. Luckily it was neither too hot or too cold but was just right!
The children are starting to get used to our routines in school and are becoming very good at washing their hands. We have also been practising our listening ears and looking eyes when sitting on the carpet. During independent learning, the children are becoming confident with navigating around the different spaces where they’ve been cooking up food in the role-play kitchen, threading beautiful necklaces and making multi-coloured collages.
Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities to do at home, including a Goldilocks song that we have learnt.
A few reminders:
Thank you J
This week in Year 2, we have been learning the story of Duckie’s Rainbow. Duckie travels through, around, under, over and past a variety of places to make her way home before it starts to rain. We enjoyed acting out the story on the playground or the field and had fun thinking about all the different adjectives we could use to describe the places that she passed. The sky this week has definitely been blue and sparkling rather than indigo and full of violet clouds, however. What beautiful weather we have had! In Science we have been around the grounds looking out for different materials. Maths has been all about counting and reminding ourselves of the rules for presentation when we are working in our maths books. We have also been enjoying our daily phonics lessons. The children have settled really well back into daily school life – well done Year 2!
