Growing In Faith and Learning
Robins have had a busy but productive couple of weeks. We have made the most of the weather, enjoying taking our learning outside. The children have produced some wonderful spaceships, linking to our Space topic. We really enjoyed our Teddy Bear Picnic, celebrating the year we have had together.
Kingfishers Plants topic has been brilliant – we have lettuces and potatoes as well as flowers in our planters. We are so happy to see that our young children are developing an interest in gardening. We have been lucky enough this week to welcome into school Barbara, who follows the Islam faith. She answered questions and described her life as a Muslim. We have written an account of travelling on a steam train in history. In Maths we have been exploring pattern, position and direction, a practical unit focussing on the language we use for changes in movement. In English we have completed our information writing on ‘Hoverbike’, creating a leaflet. We have also enjoyed our transition ‘play-dates’ with our new teachers.
Owls have made their volcanoes erupt using bicarb, vinegar and food colouring. They were very impressive! In maths, they have been learning how to plot coordinates in all four quadrants. They have created shapes and images by plotting coordinates on a grid. In RE, they have been learning about the features of Gurdwara and compared them to other places of worship. In English, they have planned and written leaflets about Tamworth Castle. In science, the children have been learning about sound waves and how sound travels.
Falcons have had a busy two weeks with the brilliant production and all the year 6 leaver’s events, but have been thoroughly enjoyed by all.
