Children in Need
We have had a wonderful time celebrating Children in Need on Friday! We dressed up in our PJs or in spots and stripes and the School Council ran a cake sale and a Penny Pudsey at the end of the day! We raised over £200 for this amazing cause!
UK Parliament Week
We've celebrated UK Parliament Week this week! We looked at how Parliament is organised and how the Government runs our country. We then looked at Claude Monet's artwork of Parliament and used watercolours to create a wash background!
We had a wonderful walk on this sunny afternoon along the bank of the River Bain. We drew sketches and noted down vocabulary ready to write our shape poems based on Just Around the Riverbend from the film Pocahontas!
We've had a fantastic 9 weeks of swimming this year! We have worked so hard and have achieved so much in this short space of time. We are really proud of what we have learnt and really enjoyed our fun swim to celebrate!
Islamic Five Pillars
We have explored more of the Muslim Faith this week by learning about their Five Pillars. We learnt about each pillar of their beliefs and then acted out each one for us to guess! Can you work out which Pillar the groups are showing?
New York Padlet Databases
Today we have learnt a little bit about collating information. We researched facts about New York City and then used a QR code to get to our table's Padlet page. Here, we inputted our information into the correct column and created a bank of facts all about the Big Apple!
Native American Settlements
We designed our own Native American settlements today! We learnt about the different things that would be important to the tribe, for example, being close to a forest or river. We then designed our own tribe's settlement, deciding where to put the teepees and totem poles for the tribe, as well as planting crops!
We became Surgeons in our English lessons today! We had to create contractions! We had to cut up some of the words, remove different letter parts and insert the apostrophe punctuation! Very detailed and tricky business!
Addition and Subtraction Vocabulary
We have been learning the column method for addition and subtraction this week. We thought about the different types of language we might use when adding and subtracting and sorted them into two piles. We talked lots about how we might use this vocabulary when we're solving problems!
We were very lucky today to see a real life Native American sword! One of our pupil's is part American and brought a family heirloom in to show us! We loved looking at the patterns and detail on the front and thought about how people might have lived during this time.
I have a Dream...
We have learnt all about Martin Luther King and how his views have affected how the people of America live today. We learnt about his life and what he believed in. We also watched a little bit of his famous speech. We then thought about what we might write a speech about and what we thought needed to change in the world.
Our Disney Letters!
We have posted our letters to Disneyland Florida! We can't wait to see if we get a reply! Hopefully our characters will be really impressed with our letters!
