Good afternoon everybody - Happy Friday!
It's been another busy week, and only 4 days after the Jubilee Weekend. I hope you all enjoyed the festivities, I really enjoyed Paddington having tea with the Queen!
This week, we have been working hard on our new English unit, starting with an elicitation task to evaluate our report writing. The new text fits in nicely with our upcoming Geography topic of Energy and Sustainability. In Maths we have been working on Properties of Shape, particularly angles, measuring them accurately and calculating them on a straight line. In History, we thought about whether King Edward was a good king and the effect of Henry VIII on the Feudal System.
On Tuesday, we had a great P.E. session, starting with some team games to warm up and then exploring our gymnastic capabilities (see photos). We have completed our Art, looking at our School building and thinking about how we could make the space greener and more environmentally friendly.
Today, we have become life coaches in Life Skills, as we took on the role of agony aunts to help out children with lifestyle related problems.
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 on Wednesday 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 in a couple of weeks to check their progress so far, they can bring it in whenever they like to show me what they have been doing beforehand and I really enjoy looking at these with them.
Next week, we will continue with our new English unit, work on our new Geography unit of Energy and Sustainability, complete our unit on properties of shape in Maths, Adapt and Evolve in Science and have another fun Forest School session on Tuesday afternoon.
Have a great weekend, enjoying family time.
See you on Monday
