Class Story: - Our class story this half term is called 'The Boy in the Tower' written by Polly Ho-Yen.
Summer Term 1 - Week 4:
This week, the children have been busy taking their SATs test. They have all been really focused and have worked hard all week to do their best in each test.
On Thursday afternoon, the class had a surprise visitor in school. During their art lesson, a hedgehog crept into the corridor and poked its head into the classroom. After much excitement from the children, it was rescued and rehomed back in the wildlife area.
Summer Term 1 - Week 3:
This week, the children continued to write their narratives based on the short animation called 'Alma'. Using precise language for description, the children wrote some superb pieces of writing which described how the little girl entered a shop and built up tension and drama towards the end of each piece. In maths, the children have been continuing to revise their key arithmetic skills, whilst also looking at reasoning and problems in a variety of forms.
Within their PE lessons, the class continued to learn about athletics, this week focusing on the sport of shot put. They particularly enjoyed this, proving that there may even be some future athletic stars among the class in the future!
Summer Term 1 - Week 2:
This week, Lola was awarded the trophy for her Tic Tac Toe homework project from last half term. She wrote some really interesting reports about the RSPCA, Serena Williams, as well as drawing some incredibly realistic 3D shapes and wrote a detailed book review about a recent book that she had read. The new Tic Tac Toe homework sheets have now been handed out for this half term and so the children are able to make a start on these. The work is due in on Monday 5th June.
Summer Term 1 - Week 1:
During the first week back after the Easter holidays, the children have been busy carrying out lots of learning. In PE, they started their topic on athletics. The children watched videos of both Usain Bolt and Eilish McColgan and discussed both of their running techniques. The children then learnt how to carry out both a standing start and a sprint start, and began to understand how to use their arms to propel themselves faster during a sprint.
In English, the children watched a short animation called 'Alma'. They discussed the plot of the film and how the animator used different techniques to give an impression of mystery and surprise. The children will be using this film as a stimulus for their own writing over the next few weeks, where they will focus on different aspects of narrative.
In Maths, the children have been finishing their learning about shape. They looked at the vocabulary associated with circles and solved problems which these involved. They then revised the topic of 'roman numerals', and worked in pairs to solve a puzzle where they had to match up roman numerals to their Arabic number equivalents.
