Friday 22nd September 2023

The children have had another busy week with lots of learning taking place.  They have completed an independent piece of writing in preparation for the Talk For Writing unit to start next week. They have had rugby and gymnastics as PE sessions.  All children have now started their french unit which is all about pets. Ash class have been inspired by the artist Hokusai and his paintings; they have been making block prints out of cardboard and string and printing their pictures. Our topic in geography is Natural disasters and the children have started to learn about volcanoes, tsunamis, floods and their causes; this has led to lots of discussion in relation to our climate and global warming.

The children have been learning Place value to 1,000,000 in maths and in English they have focussed on adverbs, adverial phrases and fronted adverbials. In Ash class the children have been sewing their flags ready to be hung around the classroom.  The children have been on a materials hunt for flexible, absorbant, flexible, transparent and hard materials, they went looking both in and outside of the school building. RE they have started to try and answer the big question 'Is believing in God reasonable?' Music has had a focus of pulse and rhythm and the children listeded to the four seasons by Vivaldi to hear and then identify the pulse and rhythm.  PE units are rugby and gymnastics; they had SCS in for rugby and they used the wall bars, ropes, spring board, benches and free standing climbing equipment.
