We have been continuing our work on time in Maths this week. Children have been encouraged to secure their work on reading and writing the time to the nearest 5 minutes, find the duration of time and problem solve based on their increasing knowledge.
Due to the World Cup starting this week, we deciding to make our English work based around Harry Kane’s last minute goal for England. As you can imagine the children have responded really well to this. We watched the goal in class and then created a bank of ‘wow phrases’ to describe each stage. Children went on to write their own goal recounts which we have since recorded. I wanted the children to work on their speaking and listening skills as well as performance skills to make it exciting and interesting for their audience. I shall try to upload these onto our school YouTube channel so that you can share our experience.
We have been continuing our work on the Stone Age for history and have now started looking at the Bronze Age. Children created a fact file all about the differences of the two Ages and will go on to create some art work next week on Stonehenge.
In Science we have started looking at plants. We are currently conducting an experiment to see what a plant needs in order to grow well. The children are each in different teams and are looking at soil, air, water and light. We will observe our plants over the next few weeks and record the changes we notice.
Chidlren will need to take their PE kits home next week and come into school on Thursday in them ready for sports day. Spellings should all be in their homework boooks and just a reminder that you have a few weeks left to complete any homework off the homework menu which should also be in children’s homework books.
Have a nice weekend!
