This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been busy writing a descriptive poem about the Iron Man. They have used descriptive language and have impressed everyone with their metaphors and similes. In Maths, the children have been revising taught methods for addition and subtraction. They have also worked hard with missing number problems. They had a fantastic film afternoon this week with popcorn and a drink.
Year 4 – have wrapped up their final piece of English work for this year by publishing their newspaper reports. As well as that, they have been brushing up on their SPaG knowledge and writing Christmas stories. In Maths, they have consolidated the term’s work with questions using all four operations. They have also created some amazing winter kitten and puppy pictures that they couldn’t wait to take home. In preparation for next term, they have begun learning about Norse Gods and Goddesses.
Year 5 – have been very happy to be back in school this week after their isolation. They have had another busy week beginning to plan and write a diary entry in English. They will continue this after the Christmas break. They also enjoyed watching some Christmas adverts and retelling the story. In their Maths lessons, they have been working out perimeters and finding missing sides of shapes, as well as using division to work out the lengths of sides of shapes when the perimeter is given. Each morning, they have enjoyed some PE activities with Mr Hawkes to get everyone ready for the busy days they all enjoyed. As it's the last week before the Christmas holidays, they have also enjoyed completing various Christmas activities, not forgetting our movie! We hope everybody has a lovely holiday and look forward to seeing each other in the New Year.
Year 6 – have continued to work hard. In English, the children have completed their non-chronological reports about owls and have found out some very interesting facts about these fascinating birds. They have completed this half term's Science topic on living things (including micro-organisms) by looking at the results to an investigation into the growth of mould on bread; and by designing their own micro-organisms. They have also finished reading their book, Skellig by David Almond, which they have all enjoyed.
