We have returned to school with a WOW ! We have been independent learners and shared our amazing ideas with our class mates this week as we learn new things. We continue to explore, persevere and communicate all of our creative ideas.
While we have a flexible timetable we will be continuing with; Times Table Rock Stars, the Daily Mile and PE every Tuesday and Thursday; please make sure you have your PE Kit, including spare socks, hair-ties and earring tape (or no earrings please).
Outdoor PE is on Tuesday, make sure you have jogging bottoms, gloves and a hat as we will be outside regardless of temperature.
Spellings are issued every second Thursday and we have a ‘check-up’ (test) every second Wednesday.
Reading books and Reading Records have been issued and sent home. These will be collected and marked off on a regular basis. Please read as often as possible and talk about what you are reading.
We have started our new theme with some EPIC learning.
To launch our new topic we dissected owl pellets and discovered the undigested bones of small animals. We discussed why these couldn't be digested and how the creates waste products. We identified different bones and what animal they might have come from, then we discussed how this was similar to human bones and human digestion!
Following on from this we investigated different types of cereal bars. We compared them for sugar and calories and were surprised by the results. We tasted some ingredients and then had a go at making our own RAW Fruit Bars. It was messy, but most of us agreed, it was worth it.
We are linking our English with our topic through out the term. We will be using Super Human to inspire instructional writing, explanations and persuasive writing.
Our new topic for Jigsaw this term is Celebrating Difference. We will be learning about to accept peoples differences, how to give and receive compliments and how to help people in the classroom and the playground.
In Power Maths we are using our place value skills to help us with addition and subtraction. We are using place value charts and a variety of equipment to help show exchanges in addition and subtraction.
This term we have been traveling on Points and Patches and using control to create balances using different points. We have been using the apparatus to experiment with movement and balances.
