Take a look at what we have been up to:

Easter Celebrations

This week we all busted a move to “I’m a Little Chick” in the church and celebrated Easter with a hunt, seasonal baking and the team treat.

 

English

This week, we wrote some of THE most fantastic letters I have ever read. We found out on Monday that King Henry VIII wanted to execute us because we stole a bread roll when we used to work for him 500 years ago. He then wanted us to come up with reasons as to why he should change his mind! This was a great opportunity for us to remind ourselves of letter features.

Maths

This week, we finished our shape learning and began by solving measurement! We explored length in cm and the children were shown the different methods in how they can count to see what length something is. We’ll continue to do this after our break!

PE

Another fun week in PE this week. Some exceptional teamwork with Tom and continued excitement and development of skills with Larry during rugby.

Science

In science this week, we invited children from yr 6 to help us with our investigation into whether we get faster at things as we get older.  Ash class timed how long it took the year 6s to complete activities and compared the results  to how long it took themselves to also complete them.  We had some surprising results!   I was very impressed with how well both classes worked together.

Useful Links

Here you will find a useful website, should you be interested in finding more interesting texts for your children to read. You can browse by age so that you know they’re appropriate, as well as finding some above or beneath. Sharing stories with your children is such a powerful tool and can accelerate their reading, vocabulary, writing and general outlook.
