Weekly Bulletin - 29th April 2022
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been very busy this week learning about weighing in grams and kilograms in Maths. In English, they have been exploring the features of poetry, followed by writing their own poems about the journey of a pebble. They have been incredibly creative with their ideas and use of vocabulary. In Humanities, they have begun to learn about Pre-Historic Britain and have created their own timelines. On Thursday, they had a very exciting Zoom call with Farmer Nicola! She showed Year 3 around the lambing shed. They have had 86 lambs born on the farm over the last two weeks. Nicola showed us a very hungry lamb being bottle fed and it drank the whole bottle in 56 seconds!
Year 4 – have taken on a classic fairy tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and twisted the story to tell it from a different point of view. Some have a very misunderstood wolf who was just concerned about Red’s safety as she quite happily shared information with a stranger! In Maths, they have been working on comparing and organising decimals. They have also started their exciting Romans History topic by discovering what Iver would have been like as part of a Celtic tribe and comparing it to the life in Rome at the same time. They have also been comparing the lives of rich and poor Romans. In Science, they have begun looking at their topic on habitats. Year 4 have also been very lucky to have taken part in an exciting music lesson this week. They have been singing and playing glockenspiels along to different songs including Mamma Mia and a song about IVJS.
Year 5 – have continued their work learning about decimals in Maths. They have added and subtracted decimals within ‘one’ and understood how number bonds help to make one whole. They have been creating a leaflet about Epcot for English to identify it’s features and watched a video about Epcot which inspired our writing. They planned what information to include then began writing our paragraphs. Year 5 have also continued to study the work of Van Gogh. They have looked closely at his Starry Night painting and used his style to create their own interpretation of this famous art work.
Year 6 – have all been working exceptionally hard on their return to school after the Easter Holidays. SATs are almost upon us, so much of this week has been focused on grammar revision in English; and covering one of our last topics in maths - Statistics. We have started our new Humanities topic - The Maya civilisation, where the children have found out where this ancient civilisation were and how their abandoned city of Chichen Itza was discovered by the Spanish conquistadors just over 500 years ago. In PSHE this week, we looked at mental health and discussed how we can look after our mental health. The children have begun coding text adventure stories in computing.
