This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been learning all about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes in Maths. In English, they have been writing a persuasive letter to the Iron Man, trying to persuade him to help with Space Bat Angel Dragon. Now that’s a sentence! They have also had their lovely voices on loan to year 4, providing back up singing for the Year 4 production.
Year 4 – have been retelling the story of Varjak Paw from a different character's (Holly’s) perspective and writing it down as a narrative. They have been working hard to use descriptive language to help set the scene and describe the characters.
In Maths, they have working on finding the perimeter and area of squares and rectangles. They have also been practising our times tables.
They have also had the little task of putting on the Lower School Production of 'The Inn Crowd'.
Year 5 – have been hands on in many of their subject areas! In Science, they went outside and found out about chemical reactions by mixing vinegar and baking soda, and mentos and coke. In Maths, they jumped into long division and even learned a fun rap to help them remember the steps. Finally, they explored Ancient Greece through their very exciting Greek Day which was filled with art, food and fun.
Year 6 – have been undertaking their next round of assessments and we are very proud of the effort they have put in and of their positive attitude towards the tests. In English, the children have started to draft their newspaper reports based on an outbreak of varmints in the UK! They are continuing to learn about South America in Humanities and about micro-organisms in Science.
