In Nursery the children are becoming more independent. They use their imagination. They are able to choose the resources they need and use tools and equipment by themselves. They ask for help if they need it. Look at some of the wonderful things they have made this week.
Anyone for an ice-cream?
A super submarine!
A wonderful wand!
A beautiful butterfly!
During R E this week Year6 have been debating whether Christianity is still a strong religion 2000 years after Jesus was on the Earth.
The children debated as class and then wrote their own personal point of view backing it up with facts.
Mim said ‘ I feel that Christianity is a strong religion because many people even today still believe in Jesus.
Kacy said ‘ In my opinion I think that Christianity is still a strong religion because there are many Church Schools and lots of Christians in the U.K
Malaz said ‘In my opinion Christianity is still a strong religion because many people still worship Jesus around the world today.
The children enjoyed this debate and there were many good points of view raised.
In Year 1, we have been exploring the best material to make an umbrella for our friend Ted. We all made predictions then performed an investigation. We explored the following materials; foil, felt, tissue paper and plastic. We used our scientific skills to observe closely to the change of the material once water was dripped onto the material. We found out that plastic and foil were both waterproof, however later found out that foil can be easily ripped, therefore not the best material for an umbrella.
We are looking forward to making our plastic umbrella to keep Ted dry!
In Year 5 some of us have been learning about different types of angles and how to measure them. It was hard at first to use a protractor accurately, but once we mastered the protractor slide it became easier. We also learnt the differences between acute, obtuse and reflex angles. Why not ask your child about the different types of angles?
Finally we have also been learning about the total number of angles on a straight line, angles in a triangle and quadrilateral and angles around a point. Why not ask you child to explain them?
Why not have a look at some of our work
This week Year 3 have been working hard to plan, tell and write their own tales of fear. Everyone shared their ideas of possible settings for our stories and also fears. Lots of time was spent with a partner in drawing as story map and rehearsing ideas for each of the five parts of the story. Also, each pair listened to and made changes to their stories following peer assessment. Finishing the week on the writing of individual stories and using a checklist to make sure each paragraph had a range of sentences and punctuation.
Miss Mcleod and myself have been astounded with the quality of writing this week. We are very proud of each and every child in Year 3. Mo Farah YOU are STAR WRITER this week 🙂
Ask your child to tell their tale of fear. Can you guess what the fear is?
This week in Nursery we have been thinking about our mommys in preparation for Mother’s Day on Sunday.
The children made some beautiful cards using potato prints. All the children had a go at writing their name. I am very proud of how well they did.
We have also noticed that the radish seeds we planted have started to grow.
Finally, look at our tomato plants. Aren’t they amazing!
Yesterday ,Year 6 finished their 3d model of the heart. The children had to paint and add detail to the hearts to make realistic representations. Why don’t you ask your child to discuss their science and explain to you the functions of certain parts of this very important organ?
