Term 5

Welcome back everyone. We have had a very busy first week:

– investigating states of matter in our new science topic

– reading and writing Spring poems

– using co-ordinates in maths and practising problem solving, putting into practice all the methods we have used this year. Homework consolidates this.

– clubs have started and we are dancing and playing cricket in PE, please can we all have water bottles this term.

Our English homework this week is to write another Spring poem and as promised here are some examples of the styles we have looked at

(These are photos of the slides we have looked at in class. Please search online for let’s more information )

Your poems do not have to be from the above samples, you can write your own poem in the traditional style.

 

End of Term 4, Happy Easter Everyone

We had a lovely day for walking to church for our Easter Service.

We also had a quick assembly, where Skye was awarded 3 certificates which she missed in the last KS2 school meeting and then many of Lime Class were awarded 100% attendance certificates-well done everyone 😀👍

We then then had to say goodbye to Sam 😟 Good Luck in your new school Sam. we will miss you!

Earlier in the week we had our Yr3 & 4, house handball competition, which was great fun.

We also made Easter Cards with Mrs Crichard

 

and completed our topics with presentations of our topic homework. They were fantastic, thank you. I really enjoyed reading them all.

It was also our last judo lessons and Katelyn and Sam won the Gold medals this year. Congratulations both of you!

Finally here are some examples of our Descriptive Writing Hot Tasks…

 

Have a lovely, well earned Easter Holiday everyone 🐰🐣

 

 

Week 6 – completed William Morris pictures and Fencing Club

This morning, we completed our descriptive writing Hot Tasks

(Hot task examples to follow)

and this afternoon most of us finished our William Morris pictures.

The time taken and detail of these are fantastic.

I also took a few pictures of  the after school fencing club

Can you recognise anyone from our class? It looked like you were having lots of fun, well done.

Next week is the last week of term and is very busy; don’t forget we have judo on Monday and Thursday afternoon and it’s our Easter Service, in church, on Friday morning.

Week 5 – Maths and Mothering Sunday

This week began with revision of naming and classifying 2D shapes…

Triangles and Quadrilaterals

Can you name a triangle that has 3 edges which are all equal, with three equal internal angles of 60 degrees?

What do we call this triangle?

Can you describe an Isosceles triangle or a Scalene triangle?

Quadrilaterals are 4 sided shapes. We can describe the properties of a: rhombus, square, trapezium and parallelogram 

We have also been preparing for Mothering Sunday and our Mothers’ Day Service today. Everyone spent a long time thinking about their messages, they were all heart felt and brought a tear to my eye.😌

We hope you enjoy your surprises on Sunday and didn’t cry too much during our Service. I can’t share the photos of the surprise until Monday but I will…

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Week 4 Danceathon and William Morris Art

We completed our 20 minutes dancing with Oak class and had a great time. Please can I remind everyone that our sponsorship forms and money should be returned on Monday.

Well done Lime class.

In art this week we looked at the work of William Morris, a famous Victorian artist and designer. We looked at his textile and wallpaper prints and then had a go at drawing them ourselves.

Week Three

On Monday morning KS2 had a Stay Safe Assembly with the NSPCC. We met Blot and heard all about Child Line.

Ask any of us the number and we will show you how we remember it…08001111

We were also reminded to say S  T O P!

S – several

T-times

O-on

P-purpose

and

S-start

T-telling

O-other

P-people

 

In the afternoon we continued our exploration of the Victorians and Victorian life…

We looked at how life changed during Queen Victoria’s reign. We also had a good look at our school as the oldest parts are typical  of Victorian school buildings…

 

Also here are a few pictures of our rose bush in the library, that were omitted from last weeks blog.

Who Stole the Tarts and Alice’s Evidence

And so to the last two chapters of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

We have had a wonderful week, ending with our performance of the Lobster Quadrille in school meeting. Congratulations  to Ava who won the book cover competition.

Here are a few more pictures of completed illustrations and our entries for the competition.

Maths today was based on the White Rabbits pocket watch that had Roman numerals on its face. First we had to work out what numbers these were then we had to solve some tricky time problems. Some of us filled a page with Roman numerals!

We have all enjoyed a fabulous week in Wonderland! 😀

World Book Day-the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

The best yet…. reading, watching and participating in the maddest but best tea party ever!

We read the chapter in our book, watched the Disney clip and went over to the table in the corridor to freeze frame the beginning of the chapter- can you spot who is playing the Doormouse? This afternoon our school tea party was a fantastic success and all our jam or marmite sandwiches disappeared.

The World Book Day costumes were also amazing….
