3rd February 2023
Next week is Internet Safety Week and Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week – look out for conversations about learning on these topics.
In English, the children have completed their diary writing and started to look once more at non-chronological reports. This has allowed us to use the science learning about digestion to provide the content of the reports, including human and animal teeth.
In Maths, we have looked at efficient methods for multiplication and subtraction and we are looking forward to a unit on measuring length in metres and kilometres. This will also complement our geography work using maps.
In art, the children are very excited to be continuing to work with the theme of dragon's eyes. They have sketched and shaded an eye and also created a coloured piece using oil pastels. There will be more work after work with clay, to bring their designs to life..
The dodgeball lessons remain as exciting and tense as always – this week we had competitive games that helped us to also make useful connections to concepts such as fair-play, good sportsmanship and coping with winning and losing! Next week is the final session with more games. We will aim for small-sided games in our hockey lesson next Wednesday also, weather permitting.
We had a number of visitors to class this week to observe the progress of our recorder lessons in music- they were extremely enthusiastic about how well the children were playing. They are now combining the notes B, A and G, and creating a lovely sound that reverberates around the school on Thursday afternoons – keep remembering to bring in any recorders that are going home.
Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Barriball and Mr Newberry
