The week ended on a high with the class producing a newspaper. Everyone contributed and news stories ranged  from the Queens wedding anniversary to a restaurant review for K.F.C. Copies will be available on Monday . Earlier in the week we started a Forces topic in Science and began an investigation to compare the stretch  of a Newtonmeter , spring and elastic band. In History,after looking at reproduction artefacts, the class wrote a ‘A day in the life of an Ancient Greek child’.The papier mache pots are nearly done-Hooray!

Week 3

Class 4 have worked hard this week and made good progress.Well done to those who achieved their Bronze times tables award and lots of improvement in the Big Maths.I was very impressed by the scientific thinking during the Science investigation ‘Which paper towel is best’.Out of the brands tested Plenty performed the ‘best’ for absorbency and strength.I’m looking forward to reading the final versions of the Mythical creature reports over the weekend.

Autumn 2 week 2

Rowling class have been working hard this week and I have included pictures of the learning walls.We are working towards a non-chronological report on a mythical creature so have discussed what is meant by formal and informal language.The children researched ‘What the Ancient Greeks did for us;in Science explained how we get day and night and the seasons.In our Remembrance assembly we thought about the symbolism of the poppy and listened to children who had relatives who had served in the wars.Please take note of the new dropping off arrangements starting Monday.

Happy Half Term!

We have been continuing with our Ancient Greek topic this week. Everyone has written instructions on how to defeat a mythical beast and some more work has been done on our Greek pots!

The pumpkin display in the hall looks fantastic! The hard work and creativity that has gone into carving the pumpkins is evident, well done, everyone!

We hope all our families have a wonderful half term and we look forward to welcoming you back after the break.

Maths games

It was lovely to see so many parents in school for our afternoon of maths games, the children loved sharing them with you. As well as having arithmetic and reading comprehension assessments this week, we have been working on our Greek pots and finishing our planet mobiles. The Greek Myths are now complete and some are on display outside the classroom, please do come and have a look.

Could we  please ask parents not to use the Class Dojo app as a form of communication as it is not always possible to check the site regularly and we would hate for any important messages to be missed. Please use the homework diary instead.

 

Creative learning!

This week we have been very ‘hands on’ in class.

During history, the children started creating their Greek pots with the help of balloons and papier mache. As part of our science topic, space, we have been studying the planets that make up our solar system and the children made some lovely models. We looked at the poem ‘The Wreck of the Hesperus’ during English and used Plasticine to create a scene from one of the verses. On Thursday, all of key stage 2 came together to play different maths games and even created their own.

Well done, everyone!
