Our learning this week

This week in English we have planned a newspaper report based upon the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have then tried writing reports independently.
In Maths, Year 2 have been learning about position and direction. Year 3 have been learning about perimeter and have looked specifically at solving measurement problems. In Science, we looked at different light bulbs and thought of ideas for how to make a bulb light. We had a very lively discussion and couldn’t wait to try some of our ideas so we did some extra science exploration this week.

In Art, we have been learning about sculpture. We looked closely at some natural objects such as acorns and pine cones. Next, we made mini-models out of clay.

Coming up next week!
Monday: Bank Holiday
Tuesday: Forest School
Friday: Come dressed as a Rock Star for the NSPCC.

Bags to School

Please remember to bring your ‘bags to School’ (any unwanted clothes, shoes etc) tomorrow morning. The collection is usually early so please bring them first thing.

It is also Forest School for Red class group 1 tomorrow too!

 

Our learning this week

Welcome back Yellow Class! We have enjoyed a wonderful week together and have worked extremely hard. In Maths we have continued to learn about fractions and in English we have started to learn about newspaper reports. We have looked at the story of a local hero saving a little girl and her Grandma from a vicious wolf!

We have been discovering how we can learn about the past by studying artefacts.

In Science, we have started a new topic about electricity. We have sorted appliances into groups, thinking about whether they use electricity or not.

We have designed and painted our own ‘Ancient Greek’ vases.

We celebrated St. George’s Day with strawberries and cream in the sunshine.
