Each Year Group page contains news and features as well as up to date home learning and objective information.
On Friday we took our first trip to the shop for our special snack. The children really enjoyed planning, choosing and paying for it but they said the best part was sharing it with their friends! Each week a different group of children will go for our special Friday snack.
We have been practising our number bonds to 10.
We drew round our hands, cut them out and used them to help us work out our number bonds to 10.
This week we had a special visit from Samuel Pepys. He told us all about his life and even read extracts from his diary.
In our outdoor PE sessions we have been learning tennis skills. The children are improving their catching and volleying skills.
Anglo Saxon Day
Year 4's Stupendous Anglo-Saxon Adventure! On Thursday 7th October, Year 4 were very lucky to have a visit from Ash, the Anglo-Saxon Specialist. He brought with him dozens of meticulously reconstructed artefacts from all over the period including swords, shields, spears, axes, armour and many many more! The children were able to handle the weapons and armour to get an idea of just how heavy and dangerous the real things would be! Later in the day, the children learnt all about Saxon clothes, writing and food (including some of the gory bits!) as well as learning about, and acting out, the famous story of Beowulf. It was a fantastic day, made all the better by Year 4's fantastic behaviour and involvement.
Year 5 have been debating in Science this week and deciding which scientist is the greatest with their work on the heliocentric model. Galileo or Copernicus? You decide!
Shadows in Science!
Year 6 enjoyed investigating what happens to a shadow when an object is moved towards a light source. They made predictions, measured the width/height of an objects shadow at different distances from the light source, recorded their results and wrote a conclusion.
