Growing In Faith and Learning
Robins have had another wonderful couple of weeks. They have been exploring different types of transport and enjoyed having a motorbike into school, where they asked lots of questions. The children have been working hard on their writing, linking what they have been learning to their independent activities. Last week they conducted a survey in maths, to see how we got to school and this week they have been measuring the distance of different cars travelling along a ramp. The children have been learning about the Easter Story in RE, developing their understanding of the different days of Easter. The children are still competing for an Easter Egg, by going to as many different activities as possible each day!
In Maths Kingfishers have started a unit on Statistics, looking at pictograms and using tally charts. They have made wonderful ‘New Life’ posters for RE in the computer suite – they are experts at logging on now! They have created sequences of movements in Gym and in PE have applied their learned skills in a game of tag rugby! They continue to focus on poetry for comprehension in Guided Reading and wrote thank you letters to the staff at Sudbury Toy Museum. They made marmalade sandwiches for our Teddy Bears’ picnic and then wrote a set of instructions. In Science they have been looking at what types of food our bodies need to keep healthy.
Owls have revisited their learning on written calculations for multiplication and division. The children have created an animation using PowerPoint in computing sessions. In English, they have written a recount of their amazing Viking Day and have written their very own dragon poems. In Religious Education, they have started to learn about what happened during Holy week. For PSHE, they have been learning about different types of secrets and how these make us feel.
A busy and exciting couple of weeks for Falcons, where the children have again worked incredibly hard. Year 6 are busy revising and practicing for their SATs, whilst Year 5 continue to work with Miss Booth. Children have been working on fractions, decimals and percentages in maths, and in English, both year groups have written their own poems. In RE they planned and held a debate about who was responsible for Jesus’ death. This was a brilliant experience and the children had some well thought out arguments.
