1st Week Back
Since coming back to school after the Easter holidays, year 1 have been work exceptionally hard! This week our main focus was presentation and handwriting and introducing our children to narrow lined books! The children completed their work amazingly and have continued to work hard on their presentation and handwriting all week in all subjects! Well done Year 1 and keep it up!
The children love opportunities to take their learning outside, whether they are taking part in P.E. or measuring using trundle wheels.
This week for our Science lesson, we sketched our observations of trees and their leaves around the school. We made comparisons and shared our findings.
We are all enjoying the warmer weather at Branfil and hope you all get a chance to go outside this weekend too!
The Year 2 Team
Ready Steady Grow!
Our new science topic on plants has had Year 3 learning about germination this week! They are ready to start observing some changes while growing different types of plants.
This week we have been learning how to make a circuit! It has been great fun and we found some 'shocking' results!
In year 5 this week, all three classes were able to take part in an interactive workshop around the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
In Aspen and Hawthorn, this meant going to the upper hall and working together to reenact the play. For Alder, this took place online but was still great fun.
World Maths Day
Today is World Maths Day.
In class we discussed how many times we use maths within our day. We created some VERY long lists!
