I feel really pleased with the children's writing this week. They have worked hard and used their knowledge of Rio de Janeiro to complete 2 pieces of work. First, an information text focussing in depth on one site in Rio. We based this on the book 'A Walk in London' so it became 'A Walk in Rio'. They have also written a diary entry in Geography imagining that they lived in the city. Some of these were really creative! They feature facts about Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana beach and much more.
In Maths, we have been learning about shapes and their properties. Next week, we will be looking at co-ordinates and how to plot on a grid. It is assessment week next week so we will have a reading assessment on Monday, 2 Maths assessments on Tuesday but then that's it. Plenty of fun to be had after that! We will even be doing some Brazilian cooking in D.T... Watch this space as I might be asking to borrow some kitchen equipment please!
Have a great weekend everyone.
Hello everyone. We've reached the end of another busy week in Ash Class! Here are some highlights...
In Maths, we have been learning all about angles and found lots of examples of right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles in the classroom.
At the start of the week, we took our English lesson outside for our very own 'Walk in London' during which the children looked at some of the tourist sites in London and used this to inspire their writing for the day.
In the afternoons, we've virtually travelled to another city - Rio de Janeiro - during Geography. The children have worked hard to research and compare life in Rio to our own lives in the UK.
We continued our RSE programme with a lesson about some of the physical changes that happen during puberty and the importance of maintaining personal hygiene.
Finally, have a look at some of the pictures from yesterday's OCRA Quad Kids Athletics tournament! It was a great morning and lots of fun was had by all.
Just a quick reminder that the expectation is that children are reading daily. This could be anything from magazines, newspapers, manuals to cookery books, as well as their reading books. All reading is important! Please record in their reading diaries (children can do this themselves) and just initial so I know you've checked it. Keep practising those times tables too. There are lots of children who are close to moving up on TTRS, let's see how many can next week.
Have a fab weekend everyone!
It's the end of the first week back! This week, we have learnt all about statistics in Maths and the children have been able to read and interpret data from a variety of different graphs. In English, we have read a book called 'A Walk in London' and will be writing our own version called 'A Walk in Rio de Janeiro' using some of our Geography learning.
In PE, we have started Athletics and today did some long distance running and had great fun using javelins. See some photos below.
Yesterday, we had our first RSE lesson and learnt the scientific names for all the body parts. We discussed the PANTS rule and listened to a song to help us remember how to keep safe. https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/support-for-parents/pants-underwear-rule/
It looks like great weather for the weekend so have a good one!
