Weekly Bulletin - 21st April 2023
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been learning how to add and subtract fractions in Maths and have been working on their reading comprehension skills in English. They have made the most amazing moving monsters in DT, exploring the use of pneumatic systems to make moving parts. Everyone worked incredibly hard to create their monsters, which showed great imagination. Year 3 were very lucky to have a Zoom call with farmer Nicola just a few hours after the first lamb had been born on her farm. Nicola explained how she takes care of the ewes and lambs and the children were able to ask her questions. It has been a busy week but all of Year 3 have worked incredibly hard and have settled into the new term really well.
Year 4 – have had a busy week back at school! In English, they have been writing a fact file about Italy, the setting of their new class text this term, Escape from Pompeii. In Maths, they have been working on converting hundredths from fractions into decimals and dividing by 10 and 100. In Art, they began their Environmental Art topic by going outside and taking some photographs of nature. Year 4 were very lucky to end their week by visiting Iver Environment Centre as the opening of their science topic, Living Things and their Habitats.
Year 5 – have settled back into school amazingly, and achieved so much this week. In maths, we have been working hard to interpret different graphs and tables. The children have even challenged themselves to complete tricky tables that had some data missing! In English, we have dived straight into some research about rainforests. Year 5 have gathered loads of excellent information about the different types of rainforests, the layers within them and the animals that live there. In addition, we have been finding all of the countries of Asia on the world map in Humanities. The children have labelled their own maps and explored different facts about the continents.
Year 6 – have started the new term with a focus on grammar; the children have been revising grammar skills and then doing a 5-minute write in each of the grammar lessons to use the skills they have been revising. They have started their new humanities topic - The Victorians - and have experienced some stern teaching from their teachers as they found out what it was like to be a child in a Victorian classroom! In PSHE, the children have started a topic on relationships and have been looking at mental health, the challenges we may face in life and support. We were very lucky to have people in from Heathrow Airport on Thursday to work with the year group.
