Growing In Faith and Learning
Robins (Nursery and Reception)
Robins have had a fun and busy couple of weeks. They have had lots of fun learning about the circus and it has been lovely to see them using some of the skills taught in the workshop. The children have been drawing and writing about what they would be in the circus, with Reception really applying their phonics.
In maths, they have been looking at halving and doubling, with the children sharing items in a picnic. Through RE, they looked at the creation of the Earth, with the children producing some lovely paintings, drawings and writing.
Kingfishers (Year 1 & 2)
Although the Y2 children have been busy with their ‘special work’, they have packed a lot into the last fortnight! In Maths they have been learning about telling the time; o’clock, half past and quarter past. In Athletics they have been practising their throwing skills with the javelins and have been creating superhero partner sequences (working in unison) in dance. They have looked closely at flowering plants in Science, to identify and label the different parts and have started to plant their own bulbs and seeds in the outside planters. For our Prayer unit in RE, they have been exploring the various ways we can talk to God. In English they used drama to imagine they were superheroes enrolling for ‘Superhero Academy’ and then wrote diaries about their day. They have ended their English topic with a brilliant Superhero dress up day today which was great fun and also wrote superhero poems. They learnt about a real life superhero from the past, Florence Nightingale, and made lamps.
Owls (Year 3 & 4)
Owls have been learning about the different layers of the earth and how volcanoes are formed. In maths they have been learning how to give change and have started to learn how to interpret pictograms and bar charts. They have been learning how to use Excel during their computing sessions. They have input data and used formulas to find the mean, mode and frequency. In Re, they have been learning about what happened at Pentecost and have created some pieces of art inspired by these events. In English, they have looked at the features of scripts and have begun to write their own scripts for a weather forecast.
Falcons (Year 5 & 6)
We are incredibly proud of both Year 5 and 6 children – Year 6 for completing their SATs last week and all the hard work they did in preparation both at school and at home. Year 5 you are amazing too – the support you showed to your friends in Year 6 was so lovely to see.
It’s that time of year again now – play preparation! Children will still be completing lessons in the mornings and RE, PE and Science in the afternoons but they will have to fit practicing around these. I’m sure the children will be amazing as always!
