Good afternoon everybody - Happy Friday!
It's been another busy week, full of learning and what a scorching Friday to finish the week!
This week, we have been working hard on our new English unit, immersing ourselves in the text and recognising the features of our text type. The new text fits in nicely with our upcoming Geography topic of Energy and Sustainability. In Maths we have completed our unit on Properties of Shape. The children completed their end of unit assessment with pleasing results today. In History, we completed our unit on Medieval Monarchs, thinking about whether Queen Elizabeth I was a strong Queen.
On Tuesday, we had a great Forest School session, starting with some team games to warm up and then exploring our obstacle conquering abilities (see photos). This week in Guided reading, we have explored the setting of Miss Honey's Cottage in Matilda by Roald Dahl. The children have put their writing skills into action to write their own description of the cottage, with some super results.
Today, we thought about diversity in Life Skills and how we are unique and different, designing a logo that represented our unique qualities, talents and interests.
Finally this week, we finished with an Athletics based session with our Saints Southwest Coach - Mrs Edwards.
As the Sun is hotter, could I please ask, that children now have a hat and a drinks bottle and sun cream is applied, prior to them coming in to school, so that they are protected. We are lucky enough to be out on the field at the moment, if your child has hay-fever, please make sure that they are medicated.
Please look out for this half term's home learning on Class Dojo, as well as this half term's spellings. The Home Learning Diary that was sent home, has been used by many of you already, with some really good pieces of work evident, remember I will ask your children to bring this in on Friday, so that I can check their progress so far, they can also bring it in whenever they like, to show me what they have been doing beforehand - I really enjoy looking at these with them.
Next week, we will continue with our English unit, work on our new Geography unit of Energy and Sustainability, start a new Maths unit on Position and Direction, work on Adaptation and Evolution in Science and continue work on Databases in Computing
Have a great weekend, enjoying family time, enjoy the Sun! (Make sure it's safely)
See you on Monday
