Y5 Egyptians

Our Y5 classes have visited the Museum in Hull this week to learn from first hand about Ancient Egypt.

They took part in an interactive workshop and gained a huge amount of information.

I know the children will now take this knowledge and understanding back into the classroom as their theme on Ancient Egypt progresses further.

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

After the half term break, Y3 will be beginning our new topic – Tremor. This Geography based learning project will explore natural disasters from volcanic eruptions to tsunamis. It will allow children to gain an understanding of how and why these disasters happen.

During literacy, children will be exploring news reports, thinking about verbal and written communication of the news. During SPaG lessons we will be continuing to enjoy SPaG boot camp.

In maths, we will be continuing to explore time. This will enable us to further develop our time telling skills learned last week.

We would like to share our learning from our current topic. Look out for new displays appearing in the year 3 classrooms.

Don’t forget creative homework!

Year 4

After the half term holiday, we will be continuing our fabulous Raiders and Traders theme. History at its best!

Our learning in Design Technology will progress as we select and use a variety of materials to complete our Viking Longhouses before reflecting on our learning in evaluation. Team work is key here and we will be continuing to work hard on our group work, co-operation and support of each other.

In maths, our learning will focus on reading and writing the time and using these skills to solve problems. This is something you can practise at home. You’ll find lots of games on Mangahigh too.

We are particularly looking forward to launching our Picture This 2016 project and using a variety of media to respond to the chosen artwork.

Year 5

Next term in Y5, we will be beginning our ‘Pharaohs’ topic which will focus on Ancient Egypt.

We will be exploring daily life in Ancient Egypt, hieroglyphics, Egyptian gods and the exciting but gruesome process of mummification! We will be moving the children’s learning on from their previous studies in year 3 and ensuring that they have new and exciting learning opportunities this year.

In maths we will be starting with multiplication and division, particularly focusing on problem solving using these two operations.

We will also be continuing with our science topic in which we will investigate how humans and other animals change as they get older, investigating the reaction speeds of the young and old and exploring the gestation periods of animals.

We are really excited about our visit to the ‘Hands On History’ museum in the first week back! This will give us a great start to our topic work!

Have a happy and safe half term break!

Year 6

Introducing our next cross-curricular, creative topic ‘Hola Mexico’ in which we will be holding a Mexican Fiesta. Children will be tasting Mexican food and delving deeper into the traditions and culture of the colourful country. This will also link nicely with Spanish, as we continue to develop our knowledge and understanding of countries that speak Spanish, the Spanish language and much more. Within SFA, we will be moving on to the next units and further develop our writing skills. In RE, we will be continuing our focus of Sikhism and we look forward to learning so much more.

Don’t forget….  

-Remember to read at home in order to earn those DOJO points.

-Remember PE kits must be brought into school every Monday and taken home on Friday.

E-Safety Week

E-Safety Week

4D share a heart

This week we have all been learning about how to keep safe on line.  

We thoroughly enjoyed our Cyber Savvy Workshops with Ann Foxley-Johnson who helped us learn more about privacy settings and the dangers of sending inappropriate pictures.

She explained that we shouldn’t be using any social media sites unless we are older than 13.

Our parents also came for a drop in session which they said was really informative.

Year 6

In our Friday assembly we celebrated all the things we had learned.

The children played their part in Internet Safety day by ‘Sharing their Hearts’

Charlotte and Beth both read outstanding pieces of writing that had culminated from debates in SFA.

5M explained their understanding of on line dangers by sharing masks. – Who might be behind the profile or fake picture?

3D talked about what was good about the Internet.

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

During the final week of this half term, Y3 will be expressing their learning in a variety of forms. We are looking forward to publishing our writing as well as using our pastel skills to create a finished piece of artwork for display.

In maths we will be learning how to tell the time. This learning will involve us assessing different ways of telling the time as well as looking at things that will help us. Don’t forget to keep practicing those times tables.

In music we will be preforming our Glockenspiel pieces to Mrs Headleand.

We are looking forward to using our cooking skills to create smoothies. This learning will show what we have found out about healthy eating this term.

In science lessons we will be completing our cress experiment by coming to conclusions about the learning.

Year 4

In Y4 next week, the theme will be life in a Viking house. Althoguh we’ll not be making our houses from animal poo (like the Vikings did) we’ll be using our design and construction skills to recreate models of houses from 1300 years ago!

Maths will include more decimals, more multiplication facts and even a super fun arithmetic challenge! 

Science will include more on teeth and discovering what goes on in the digestive system.

We’re also learning more about how to stay safe on line and will have workshops on Thursday, showing us how to be more cyber-savvy!

Remember your PE kit (especially for outdoor lessons) and 4G will still be swimming on Thursday morning.

Year 5

In our final week of this half term we will be reflecting on our topic of ‘Time Traveller’, looking at what we enjoyed and learnt since Christmas. We will be using powerful language to describe settings from the past and present. 

In science we will be investigating our reactions and also testing older people to check how age affects our reactions.

In mathematics we will be reflecting on our latest maths assessment paper and making note of our areas for development as well as learning about the digital and analogue clock reading, area and perimeter and continuing to work on our table facts.

We are really looking forward to our next topic ‘Pharaohs’. We realise that the children studied aspects of ancient Egypt back in Year 3 so we will be focusing on unexplored areas of the topic

Year 6

Next week we will be…

-Continuing our topic ‘Tomorrow’s World’ in which we are focusing on technology and how this has evolved over time. Furthermore, in RE, we will be continuing our studies of Sikhism and developing further, our fine art skills.
