First full day! The children have been on the Giant Swing and shot some arrows at the Archery Range. After lunch, the children climbed up the huge tower at All Aboard and made their way around an obstacle course blindfolded! They played an incredible game of hide and seek after dinner in their game of Ambush in the dark!
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have begun to explore the world of poetry. They have been using rhyme and alliteration to create a silly poem as well as using their Oracy skills to discuss similes and metaphors. They will be developing these skills next week when they write a poem all about 'The Tin Forest'. In Maths, they have been developing their subtraction and addition skills by applying them to real-life situations in the form of word problems. They have discussed what makes a good classroom and decided on a Learning Charter that appeals to all of them in PSHE. For Art, they have investigated all sorts of different foundation art techniques. This week they focused on value, shape and form and produce some lovely pieces of work.
Year 4 – have been working really hard to finish and publish their own adventure stories about their adventuring plastic bag. In Maths, they have been working on solving estimation problems and effective ways to solve addition and subtraction problems. In French, they have been practising how to say hello, ask ‘how you are’ and introducing themselves. Their confidence is building week on week! In Art, they have found their inner artist and started exploring the foundations of art. This week, they have experimented with line, colour, value, shape and form. They are looking forward to completing this exploration next week when they look at texture and space.
Year 5 – have been working really hard to solve problems using multiples and have even been using strategies to test whether larger numbers are also common multiples. In Literacy, Year 5 have begun writing their narratives based on their class text, Odysseus. They have included fantastic character descriptions of the cyclops and described the cave setting superbly. In Art, they have been working on their sketching skills and have been practising how they make circles become 3D. They have been using colour wheels and looking at the various ways they can be useful, like creating different moods in their artwork.
Year 6 – have been assessment week for Year 6. We are so proud of how hard everyone has worked this half term and in their assessments. In Science, they have been learning about evolution and inheritance. They have studied the work of Charles Darwin and used this to help them understand how living things have adapted over time to survive in their changing environments.
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been working hard on subtraction problems in Maths this week. They have been using the column method with exchanging to answer questions, including developing skills to solve real-life problems via word problems. In English, they have continued to use their Power of Reading text (The Tin Forest) as inspiration to write to their local MP about problems that affect the environment in Iver. They planned their arguments clearly and have begun to edit and publish their letters. In Computing, Year 3 have been developing their knowledge of coding, completing a number of different tasks on Purple Mash successfully. This week they have begun their Art and Design topic looking at the different elements of art. They learnt about line in the first lesson and created their own 3D sculptures from card. In the second lesson they explored the element of colour, exploring colour mixing and creating their own colour wheels.
Year 4 – have been working hard on planning and starting an adventure story based on their class text, ‘One Plastic Bag’. In their stories a plastic bag is left abandoned on the hot, dusty Gambian floor and thanks to a strong gust of wind takes off on an adventure across the globe. In Maths they have been working hard on subtraction problems and have been working really hard on learning their times tables. In Science, they had a fun filled afternoon looking at how water changes different states. They investigated what happens when water vapour touches a cold surface, how ice melts from both temperature and salt. They were very excited to start their art topic and have really enjoyed exploring line through mark making and have started to explore warm and cool colours.
Year 5 – have been working hard on addition and subtraction calculations in Maths. They have also been using their rounding skills to estimate the answers to different calculations. In English, the children have completed their fact files about China and have produced some fantastic, stormy ocean art work using charcoal and oil pastels inspired by their class text, Odysseus. In Humanities, the children have finished their China topic, learning all about trade and China's imports and exports. They were shocked to find out just how many different things are produced by China!
Year 6 – have focussed on multiplying numbers using the formal method. They have worked hard to multiply up to 4 digits by 2 digits and thought carefully about how to apply their learning to a range of problems. In English, we have been learning about climate change and the impact it has on our planet. We have begun to right a non-chronological report using our own research.
