Year 1 have been busy bees this week working on our farm topic. We have been moving from writing labels to captions about food from the farm as well as creating tractor paintings and singing farmyard songs. We even made our own class band and were using percussion instruments to accompany our singing. In Maths, we have been looking at repeating patterns and finding missing numbers in number lines. Miss Szarko has been putting some tricks into our number lines to grow our brains even more but we are starting to spot them!
We have been working extremely hard planning, writing and publishing our adapted stories this week. We used the model text Little Red Riding Hood and created a class version called Little Ginger Cat. We chose this title because there has been a little ginger cat wandering around our school grounds.
Our own titles include: Little Blue Shark, Little Brown Horse, Little White Tiger, Little Green Chameleon, Little Pink Pig and many, many more. We changed the characters and lots of other things including the setting and our language choices.
Miss Ward has been overwhelmed with the amount of Topic homework being produced. There has been copious amounts of Pokemon top trump card, gorgeous adapted songs to the tune of ‘London’s Burning’ and some beautiful wind chimes.
We are looking forward to visiting Sainsbury’s bakery on Tuesday morning. It’ll be interesting to see a real life bakery and understand more about how the Great Fire of London started in a bakery on Pudding Lane.
The term is flying by and we are hitting our stride in year 4. We have already had a trip into Stroud to look at the Victorian building and to see how Stroud was built up during the Victorian era.
In year Four this year we will be having a big focus on our times-tables so any practise at home will be crucial. I will be sending how a different practise sheet every Friday.
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.
We are *loving* Year 6. The children came in on day one, rested and ready for the challenge!
We just had time to settle in, then we were off again: on our PGL residential at Osmington Bay in Dorset.
We really had a fantastic time. We really want to thank Mr S and Mrs Bateman for coming along with us. You guys are fab!
We hope you enjoyed hearing about our adventures in our class assembly.
Now we’re back, we’ve got to work! We have really upped our game, our writing is joined and we are choosing really ambitious vocabulary to express people’s feelings. We are doing whole class reading, looking at the book Once by Morris Gleitzman.
In Science, our focus is electricity. We have been building simple circuits and are experimenting with conductors and insulators.
