This week, Pre-Kindy pupils have learnt about hygiene, being independent and self-care. The pupils also learnt the 'hand washing song' with their teachers. They continued their colour hunt activity this week and all deserve a well earned break this weekend. Kindy pupils have enjoyed making their listening hats during Phonics this week and went for a listening walk around school. After the walk, they were able to recall and describe the sounds they had heard. Well done Kindy Class! Reception pupils started Phase 2 Phonics looking at the graphemes (letters) S, A, T, P and the corresponding phonemes (letter sounds). They completed a scavenger hunt searching for and sorting items to match these phonemes. In Maths, they have been exploring capacity and continuing to count and recognise numbers.
Year 1 have read the book Rosie’s Hat by Julia Donaldson and wrote about their dream jobs in the future. They also shared their baby and family photos during show and tell sessions. In Maths, Year 1 have continued to work on counting, representing numbers and recognising numbers in words. Year 2 built clay ‘meerkat burrows’ and wrote postcards to Sunny the meerkat all about the adventures he went on from their story Meerkat Mail. In topic, Year 2 have looked further into different habitats around the world, including the ocean and the arctic. In Maths, they continued their learning with place value. They looked at the different ways they can make tens and ones and how to partition numbers to 100 using their tens and ones prior knowledge. Year 3 have had a wonderfully colourful week slicing, chopping and grating their own rainbow vegetable salads and writing the recipes so others can make them too! In Maths, they have continued to look at place value up to 1,000 and also continued with number rolling to help learn their times tables.
Year 4 have described settings using the five senses. They completed comprehension questions based on the second chapter of their class book ‘The Beasts of Olympus’. In Maths, they learned to find 10, 100, 1000 more or less than a given number. Year 4s also completed their own keynote speech about a Greek God of their own choice and in Science the pupils studied food chains. Year 5 have looked at poems describing the moon. They collaborated on a class poem using metaphors, before producing powerful poems of their own. In Maths, they used number lines to order numbers up to 1,000,000 and memories were tested with the reappearance of Roman Numerals! Continuing to boldly explore our topic of space, Year 5 have discovered the order of the planets in our solar system. They also researched which ones are made from rock and which are made from gas. Year 6 and Year 7 have been rapping about respiration with imagination and dedication. They continued exploring Victorian Era London with Tamara kindly sending back wonderful photos from the Sherlock Holmes Museum during her trip to London. Prepositional phrases have helped to write the descriptive paragraphs on the journey through cobbled streets to 221b Baker Street. In Maths, they used number lines to order numbers up to 10,000,000 finishing off with a successful end of unit test. Finally, a clue has been unearthed in the Hound of the Baskervilles for all our Yr6/7 detectives. The plot thickens!
Have a great weekend!
