This Week In School…
Year 3 – have developed their knowledge of time by converting from the 12-hour clock to 24-hour clock. They have also discussed duration and used that to work out word problems. In English, they have used their understanding of adverbs, verbs and adjectives to create a poem all about their dream summer. They were really creative with their ideas from playing video games to meeting the Queen. In Art, they were introduced to art from Tobago and used the colours and ideas to create their own piece of artwork using watercolours. They developed their sketching skills and how to use a pencil differently to gain different outcomes. In P.S.H.E, they looked ahead to next year and write a letter to their new teacher. Year 3 have done so well this year and we are sure that they will continue to thrive as they enter year 4. They have some very lucky teachers next year.
Year 4 – have been working extremely hard in the hot weather. They have been thinking about next year and writing a letter to their new teachers. They shared excitement and worries with their new teacher, and some even included humour. In Maths, Year 4 have been recapping all the different shapes they have learnt and practising how to plot them on a grid using coordinates. In DT, the children have been rehearsing a cooking show, building on their Oracy skills. They have performed these amazingly and cooked up a storm in the classrooms. They all appeared to enjoy the tomato pasta that they had made.
Year 5 – have been busy writing a narrative based on a video 'The Black Hole'. They have been trying to include as many language features as they can, thinking about if they are placed in the most appropriate place. In Maths, they have been comparing volume and estimating capacity and volume. When making estimates with volume they have focused their attention on being mathematical. They have used layering and multiplication to make their estimates. They have started our DT topic about bread. They have looked at the history of bread, evaluated bread by tasting a variety and designed their flat bread ready to make next week.
Year 6 – have excelled themselves with some brilliant performances in our production, Splurged. We are so proud of them - under very hot conditions they all gave excellent performances: they were clear; loud; remembered their lines (most of their lines anyway!); acted and sang well. We couldn't have asked more of them. Away from the production, the children have been preparing for their Leavers' Assembly and finishing any topic work that needed completing.
