Week 6 – Sports Day and then The Fairford Air Tattoo

 

Thursday was Sports Day at Woodborough. The weather held out and a fantastic day was had by all. Congratulations to Venus who managed to come out winners after a very close finish to the afternoon races for KS1.

On Friday all of KS2 went to Fairford Air Tattoo and had another busy but fantastic day, with Red Arrows, Tech-No tent, Innovation Trail and lots more…

Next week is the final week of this academic year. What an amazing year Lime Class!

Monday  is moving on morning, Thursday is Swimming Gala and Friday is our last day.

Science- Classification, Art and Sponsored Walk

We have been doing lots of classifying in science. We watched a fantastic video which explained how scientists sort all living things using a branching diagram

We then had a go at sorting different plants, looking very closely at their flowers, leaves and stems.

In art we drew the animals we have had in class all term

and then tried following instructions to enlarge a photo.

On Monday we went for our sponsored walk and loved this.

Week 4

In the afternoons this week we returned to our usual classes. On Monday we had our first spelling lesson in class. On Tuesday we looked at fractions of shapes in Maths. On Wednesday we shared our ‘teeth’ homework projects…

They were all brilliant and presented with confidence.

On Thursday we had our first look at classification of All Living Things.

There was no English or Maths homework set this week, however there are spellings, reading and multiplication awards to prepare for before the KS2 school meeting next Friday.

Art Week in Lime Class

This year’s Art Week was all about the six main Christian values for our school. It also found everyone in school working together in mixed age groups. In lime class we were looking at Truthfulness .  As well as investigating our value in class, everyone went to work with Mrs Bethnal, on a Truthfulness banner.

On Monday we thought about what colours, objects, animals and words came to mind when we thought about what Truthfulness means to us.

These are pictures of us doing our Truthfulness rap.

On Tuesday, with Mrs Crichard, we painted our beautiful butterflies-a symbol used as a truth charm. We then read the story of the tax collector, Zaccheaus. Then we went outside to make freeze frames of the story.

On Wednesday we learnt our dance, ready for our performance on Friday afternoon, with  Cheryl from Marlborough Academy of Dance.  We used the freeze frame photos to help us think about what being truthful,  honest and true to yourself means.

 

On Thursday we practised our dance and made handprints to add to our Truthfulness Tree. After this we listened to another story, ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’, an Aesop Fable that told us what could  happen if we are dishonest or tell lies. Here is our collage of the story…

 

And finally everything came together in our Art Week school meeting.

The banners look amazing…

Thank you Mrs Barrett for planning the whole week, we had a fantastic time.

Legoland

We had a fantastic day, thank you to all the parent  helpers , Mrs Johanson for organising it and Rosie for a great workshop on underwater creatures and their habitats.

Term 6, week 2 Teeth!

Another busy week, without Mrs Chapman for the first 3 days!

On Monday everyone should have been given their new ‘prefix’ spellings. We have also spent all week looking at Time in maths. Homework is to be handed in on the 27th June.

In science we have been focusing on Teeth … we looked at ‘baby’ and adult human teeth. We know the different types of teeth we have and the different jobs they do. We also looked at different animals teeth and how their teeth link to the type of food they eat – herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

On Thursday we made model teeth…

Definately some potential dentitions!

As promised here are the pictures of our Digestive System models.

Have a lovely extended weekend and we will see you on Thursday, ready for Legoland on Friday!

 

Term 6 – Science, the Human Digestive System

Everyone has really enjoyed our first science lesson this term. Our following Art lesson started with a practical demonstration of the digestive system.

Here are the pictures, please ask us to explain what is happening in each one…

We have this model in class to help us…

We did show a couple of our finished collages in school meeting but we will put them all on here when they are completed.

The Music Man came to visit and Our final States of Matter experiment.

Yesterday ‘Music for Schools’ came to Woodborough to tell the Key Stage 2 children about the opportunities they have to learn new brass and woodwind instruments. As always the Music Man was very entertaining and the children are now very enthusiastic to try something new; so if they have brought a letter home please come along to see for yourselves tomorrow evening.

The excitement continued back in class when we made chocolate crispy cakes as our final experiment in our science topic- States of Matter.
