This Week In School…
Year 3 – have had a very exciting week making sandwiches in DT to learn about how to make a healthy lunch. They even got to take their sandwiches outside for a picnic! In English, they finished their non-chronological leaflet based on the book Pebble in my Pocket while in Maths, they have expanding their learning by starting to investigate the properties of shapes.
Year 4 – have travelled to Kew Gardens to take part in an exciting outdoors Maths lesson that had Y4 collecting leaves then measuring the lengths and perimeters, comparing the data on a line graph. Back at school, they have been busy completing their money topic in Maths and finishing off their narratives of Edward Tulane in English. In Science, they were inspired by their trip to redesign the courtyard to make it not only more environmentally friendly but to make it the ideal place for lots of plant and animal habitats.
Year 5 – have become co-ordinate whizzes this week - they have learned how to reflect and translate shapes to certain points on a grid. They even had the opportunity to play battleships - it was a very competitive game for some! In English, they have been writing a poem in the style of Philip Gross; they learned all about each other’s favourite animals through their poems. In Science, Kipling spent a lot of time working hard on their documentaries, they had a great time (and a giggle) watching these as a class! Finally, Year 5 have created their Van Gogh inspired painting, which have made the classrooms feel that extra bit summery! A great half term.
Year 6 – have been renewing their focus on their writing and have produced some lovely poems about Spring at IVJS. They have now started writing a fantasy story about a dragon slayer and everyone is looking forward to reading the finished stories. The children also took part in auditions for the end of year production this week and we were exceptionally impressed with the quality of the singing and acting we saw.
