We have finished Spring 2 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y2..............

The Year 2 team would like to say a big well done to all the children who continued with their learning online during the recent lockdown. We all really enjoyed seeing the children and the children tried so hard. We know that it is no substitute for children being in school, but I am sure you appreciate the effort the children made. The team would also like to send out many thanks to all the parents and older siblings who helped the children during this time. We really do appreciate your efforts.

The children have since settled back into school really well and are working extremely hard to catch up on their learning.

Through our topic ‘The Great Fire of London, we have done lots of learning across different subjects. We have explored the fire in history, reading and writing.  In history we looked at how the fire started and what happened as a result of the fire. The children really enjoy learning about the fire.

In English, we have been using the text The Snail and the Whale. We have explored the language used and used the beautiful pictures to describe the characters in the story.

In phonics, we have been learning all our Set 2 and 3 sounds. We have been finding our sounds in words and practising reading our words quickly without sounding them out.

In Maths, we have finished learning about addition and subtraction. We are using the column method. We are building on our learning in small steps as we know how important it is for children to add and subtract. We have also looked at money and the value of money. We can make different amounts and add amounts together. We have looked at how to work out change.

In D&T, we created a fruit salad. The children had to design their fruit salad and then they made it. They practised the skills that they would need to be able to make it.

In geography, we have been looking at hot and cold places, especially the deserts. We have found out that a desert could be cold as well as hot.

We recently celebrated British Science Week. We made our own paint out of fruit by mashing it and adding water. We also talked about who could be a scientist and discovered that anyone could be. We have some children who can’t wait to be Doctors and Dentists.

Our favourite author is Jeremy Strong, so we are enjoying reading some of his books during storytime. They are really funny and make us laugh. We have been looking at the language that he uses. We have also been reading some of our 10 to read before you leave books.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching year 2 this half term, even though it was unusual circumstances. It has been fantastic to see them back in school and settling back into their schoolwork so quickly.

Well done Year 2.

Its Week 5 - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

This week the children have done a book study on an amazing book called the Fog Hounds. The children have really explored the language used within the text, characters and settings. Drama has been incorporated to get a better understating of the text. They have thoroughly enjoyed reading and writing about this text.

This week has been full of fun-filled activities in Year 3! In Reading, we have been learning about recipes and have been reading Nadiya’s Bake Me a Story. From this book, we baked delicious Cookie Mallows in our classes. They went down a treat! In Writing, we have started our new unit of explanation texts and have started to plan our own. For our Maths, we have started a new unit on measure learning about cm, mm, m and equivalent lengths. In D&T, we have been learning about pneumatic systems and created our very own Moving Monsters! What an exciting week.

Its Week 5 - Lets see what's been happening in Reception..............

This week we have been reading the Easter story and discussing the different ways that Christians celebrate Easter. We have made hot cross buns with the playdough and built chicken coops in the construction area. We have also used our fine motor skills to collect eggs in an Easter basket and made Easter cards for our friends and families. As Spring has sprung, we have enjoyed being outside in the sunshine painting pictures on umbrellas, spotting signs of spring and going on egg hunts!

Its Week 5 - Lets see what's been happening in Y4..............

Y4 have started our painting unit in art and we are loving it. Today we started to develop our painting skills. First, we learnt how to use a paintbrush properly and practised making thin and thick lines with our paint brush. Then, we learnt how to tint and shade colours by mixing them. We used complementary colours to make our shades darker and white to make them lighter. We are so proud of the outcome.

Ancient Greece day in school for Y3

Dear Parent / Carer,

As part of our topic for this half term we are learning about Ancient Greece.

On Wednesday 21st April, we have invited the Dan Tastic Education company to visit us with a range of resources and workshops to support our understanding about ancient Greece and their way of life. To help us fund this visit we are asking for a contribution of £5.00.

Please note that the school and Education company have completed a detailed risk assessment to ensure that the visit can be taken place with all the safety measures including social distancing.

In the meantime why not visit their website with your child at

http://www.dantasticeducation.com/ancient-greece/ and discuss different topics covered during the workshop?

Thank you in advance for your support.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

The Year 3 Team.

Ramadan - Fasting information for Y5 &Y6 parents

Dear Parent/Carer

 

As the holy month of Ramadan will start on w/c 12th April we appreciate that some of our older children will be wanting to Fast. It is extremely important that we have parent/carer consent for children who will be fasting.

 

While we understand children will want to Fast we would advise that children below Y5 keep their Fast during the weekend as when they are in school they are very active and at this time of year there a lots of things happening.

 

For Health and Safety reasons if any child becomes unwell during their Fast we will contact parents for permission to give them food and drink. Parents may be advised to take their child home. On a hot day we will also be asking those children who are fasting to stay indoors/in the shade.

Its Week 4 - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

Following the research, this week the children have designed their own bugbot.  They have carefully thought about what materials they need to use. Their bugbots were fabulous.

The children have also started their Art Unit-Painting. They will focus on the Artist Salvador Dali, a surrealist, and create art inspired by him. They have thoroughly enjoyed researching his art work and critiquing it. Quiz your children about this artist, I’m sure they will know a lot about him.

Its Week 4 - Lets see what's been happening in Y4..............

In P4C, we have been thinking about the difference a positive mindset can have on our wellbeing. We realised that when we have a positive mindset, we are more determined, happy and can concentrate better. We have made a jar full of affirmations and read them each day to make us feel confident, successful and ready to make the most of each day. Try it, it works!
