This week in English, we have been continuing with our book, Arthur and the Golden Rope.  Paige and Terry enjoyed writing the first paragraph about Arthur and his journey across the sea, passing monsters, beasts and pirate ships.

In maths we had a competition where we had to make 3-D shapes, and then we had to count the edges, faces and vertices and then name the and got shapes. We made cones, cylinders, cubes and cuboids, spheres, square- based pyramid, triangular prism and a pentagonal prism.

The rest of the class went to Hardwick Dene, we did some sewing and we had to go in the minibus because of the rain.

We enjoyed learning about Buddhism and we learnt that there are snails and a bump on Buddha's head, the snails stop him fr0m getting burnt by the sun and the bump shows that he is powerful.  

 

Have a lovely (dry) weekend

Talk Homework: Talk about places of worship you know. Who worships there?

Maths was fun this week, as we have been learning about angles, we can identify acute, obtuse and right angles, and enjoyed making the angles with our arms. We did a maths quiz on fractions, and we all think we did well, we'll find out next week.

In literacy, we wrote a letter to Arthur, a little boy who is character in our reading book 'Arthur and the Golden Rope'. He needed to decide whether or not he should go on a quest to find a God, and he needed our advice to help him make a decision.

Some of us went to Hardwick Dene, where we met residents and we started to sew a bookmark.  It was good, but the walk there was a little scary as we saw a grass snake on the path! Those of us whose turn it was to stay at school were able to learn about team building, we watched a video and learnt about different emotions.

In PSHE, we learnt about mindful tasting, we were really excited to get to practice with marshmallows. We are going to practice eating mindfully at home this weekend, so we make take a little longer at the table.

Have a lovely weekend,

Earhart Class

Talk Homework - What if there no trees?

We have enjoyed literacy this week as we have been preparing to write our newspaper articles. We spent the week researching the features of a newspaper and sequencing the events we were going to write about. Then we composed a list of questions and responses before, finally, writing our articles.

In Music, we learnt a little about composition and improvisation. Then we listened to John Williams, Bach and Beethoven. We thought about the music - the tempo, the instrument, the pitch and how it made us feel. Then we drew our responses in our art books.

In Maths, we have been learning to tell the time. We are trying to read the time to the nearest minute, understand a.m and p.m, 12 and 24 hour clock. It has been hard but we are persevering.

In PE, we are busy developing our skills ready for Sport's day. This week we learnt relay - including passing the baton safely, skipping and bean bag race.

In RE, we are learning about People of God. We have talked about promises and the covenant between Noah and God and Abraham and God.

Have a lovely weekend.

We enjoyed making the posters for our healthy eating menus. We thought about what it means to have a balanced diet and the right nutrition.

In English, we enjoyed creating our own illustrations for ' Arthur and The Golden Rope.' We thought hard about the choice of language and the atmosphere it created. We also looked at Norse Mythology and practised our storytelling skills as we used story mapping to retell some of these myths.

In PE, we enjoyed playing bench ball. We were very glad to be inside as the weather has been very unpredictable this week.

We have worked hard in Maths this week. We have had to learn a lot of facts relating to time and the calendar. We made our own clocks to help us with our work. We finished the week off with lots of code breaking activities to help us learn our Roman numerals to twelve.

We had our photos taken this week. We all looked gorgeous!! We think!

We took our first group of children down to the allotment this week. We had planned to plant. However, when we got there the weeds had taken over the whole plot. We worked tirelessly to remove a third of the weeds. We still have more to go!!

Have a lovely weekend.

Today, in Maths, we drew lots of equivalent fractions. We also completed BMBT and CLIC and have decided we are so much better at CLIC than we were at the beginning of the year.

Welcome back to school. We hope you have had a restful Easter break. We are so happy to be back in school learning and spending time with our friends.

This week we have started a new book in English, called Arthur and The Golden Rope. We enjoyed writing letters to Professor Brownstone to try and convince him to let us visit his vault. We are looking forward to reading the rest of the book as it has beautiful illustrations throughout.

In Maths, we are looking at fractions of an amount. We started the week a little unsure, but have grown in confidence and now feel we are able to tackle fractions successfully. 

RE this week has been about People of God. We have started to learn about Noah and the difficult choices he had to make when building his ark. We found it really hard to decide who we would take with us. Noah liked hearing his name being repeated over and over!

Science, we started a new topic this week - Forces and Magnets. We are very confident identifying the force used when carrying out a particular activity.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,
