A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Class Assembly this morning, it was lovely to see so many of you to support the children! I hope you agree that they all did very well to speak in front of everyone and present their learning to you. I am extremely proud of all of them.
In our Literacy learning this week, children have prepared their non-chronological report, based on a carnivorous plant. They have thought of some amazing titles, using alliteration, as a heading for their report. Some examples include: ‘Suspicious Sticky Sundew’ and ‘Frightful Fly-Trap!’ Children have also thought of suitable sub-headings to include within their report and written facts underneath to interest and engage the reader.
In Maths this week, Year 4 Mathematicians have compared and ordered decimals with up to two decimal places. Next week, they will use this knowledge in context as we move on to understanding money. Year 3 Mathematicians are building on their knowledge of fractions to understand how they relate to decimals. For example, they know that 0.5 is the same as 5/10 and 50/100.
For their R.E. learning, children discussed what ‘temptation’ means and why some people find it hard to do the right thing. Children reflected on their previous learning about ‘The Golden Rule’ and then considered their own ‘Golden Rule’ by drawing a scenario within a comic strip and explaining what their rule would be.
Children have progressed with their fielding skills during their P.E lesson this week. They practiced throwing and catching skills as a pair, then collaborated with another pair to make a four. Next week, we will move on to learning batting skills and eventually combine both fielding and batting skills to create a rounders game.
The week ended with much excitement! As our school had been closed for Polling Day yesterday, the children had the opportunity to use the polling booths today. They had a choice of eight venues for a fun day out in Term 6. The voting system was explained to them and they finally had the chance to vote for themselves. The winning vote will be announced shortly.
Finally, we enjoyed a whole school Assembly and afternoon tea to celebrate the upcoming Coronation of King Charles III. The children have made a huge effort with creating and decorating their own crown – thank you for your support with this – they look amazing!
Have a wonderful Coronation weekend!
