Good afternoon everybody - Happy Friday!
It's been another busy week, full of learning and some really great examples of writing!
This week, we have been working hard on our English unit, immersing ourselves in the text and recognising the features of our text type. The new text fits in nicely with our Geography topic of Energy and Sustainability. In Maths we have started work on our new unit of position and direction, concentrating on coordinates and reflection. In Geography, we started work on our unit on Energy and Sustainability, thinking this week about renewable and non-renewable energy and what sustainability is.
On Tuesday, we had a great P.E. session, working on our gymnastic skills. Next week will be Forest School, so have your old clothes and boots ready next Tuesday. This week in Guided reading, we have explored the chapters The Names and The Plan in Matilda by Roald Dahl. The children have put their writing skills into action to write in role as Matilda. We used some show not tell writing to infer to the reader Matilda's emotions, with some super results. (see photo)
Finally this week, we finished with a cricket based session this morning, focused on throwing and catching skills, over arm bowling and driving when batting. This is in preparation for a mini cricket challenge that we will attend in Chagford in two weeks time, look out for the letter next week.
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. i have had 9 in today and will expect to see the rest on Monday please, so that I can check their progress so far - I have really enjoy looking at these with them.
Next week, we will continue with our English unit, work on our Geography unit of Energy and Sustainability and our Maths unit on Position and Direction, work on Lifecycles in Science and continue work on Databases in Computing
Have a great weekend, enjoying family time.
See you on Monday
