19.6.20.

A big well done to all our children this week – they are continuing to work hard in school and have been AMAZING!

During Refugee Week, the children watched an animated poem called ‘Help Them Feel At Home’, which helped them to gain an understanding of what a refugee is. Afterwards, they had the opportunity to create a poem on how they could show kindness to others.



The children enjoyed looking for patterns in nature during our Art and Design lesson on Monday and were surprised at how many patterns they found in our grounds.



In Maths, the children have been representing multiplication using repeated addition and arrays and have been using language such as ‘lots of’ and ‘groups of’.


In RE, the children listened to the story of King David, who wrote psalm 18 about the sky that we share with our neighbours. Afterwards, the children created some beautiful pictures with collage based on this psalm.




Through our Science work, we found out about the sense of hearing and investigated how to make a water xylophone. We also made our own telephones!



During our topic work, we looked at the characteristics of reptiles and found out some fun facts about them. Next week, we will be focussing on ‘Birds’.

Next week, in English the children will be writing a postcard to record a recount of an adventure. The children will be reminded to use capital letters for names of people, places, the days of the week and the personal pronoun I.   

In Maths, the focus is on fractions. The children will be finding a half, quarter, three quarters using shapes and sets of objects.

 The NRICH Maths website has a few activities that the children may like to try at home. The link for these are https://nrich.maths.org/8939 or https://nrich.maths.org/218

 In RE, the children will be listening to the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’.

Afterwards, they will be considering ‘who was a good neighbour’?

 The Golden Moments this week goes to Ted in Group 1.

I was very impressed with his scientific knowledge when carrying out the experiment to make a water xylophone.  He was able to explain clearly, how filling bottles with varying amounts of water changes the pitch of the sound.

The Golden Moment in Group 2 goes to Alessia.

She worked extremely hard to represent multiplication in various arrays. A very well done to both children!

 Enjoy the weekend!
