Week 2

This week we introduced our science topic of ‘What if my body was empty?’ by discovering the main things humans and animals need to survive. We made shelters, fire for warmth and tried some basic survival foods. The children (and teachers!) were particularly impressed with the self cooking chicken curry!

Week 1

This week we introduced the children to our class reader and they absolutely loved it! It is a book of poems about being at school called ‘Please Mrs Butler’ by Allan Ahlberg.

Week 6

This week we have been multiplying and dividing by 3 in maths, and showing this in a variety of ways including arrays, grouping, sharing and with the bar model.

(Iga)

In RE, we have been learning about the Mool Mantra and how the Muslim faith have the 99 names of Allah. For example:

5 السَّلاَمُ AS-SALAM The embodiment of Peace
6 الْمُؤْمِنُ AL-MU’MIN The Infuser of Faith

The children then had a go at their own calligraphy!

Week  5

This week we started thinking about how to write a newspaper article about a mystery Stone Age cave painting that appeared on the side of our garage! We pretended to be news reporters to feel what it would be like to really report the news!

Week 4

This week we put our learning about the Stone Age to the test by creating some Stone Age art! We studied various examples and practised making shades of brown before having a go at our very own.

Week 3

This week was a week to reflect and learn about anti-bullying. We wore odd socks on Monday and also designed our own to highlight the importance of celebrating our differences.

We loved creating our own code in our computing lesson. Here is the website if you want to try at home too!

Friday was Children in Need day where we could wear yellow to raise money! Thank you for all your donations, it really is a great cause.
