This week in 3B

Friday, 13 October 2017

This week in 3B we have been doing some exciting art and music. In Art, we created Stonehenge artwork. We created a sunset background using orange, yellow and red paint. Then we used black paper to create an outline of Stonehenge. It was really fun and we all created some lovely pieces of work. In Music we have been learning to play the Flintstones theme tune on the xylophones. We have been reading the musical notes and then trying to play them. It has been quite tricky but we are improving each time.

5C’s Diaries

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

This week, in 5C, we have been looking at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory again. We also have been looking at diaries and their features.

We decided to combine these two items and created diary entries for an Oompa-Loompa working in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory. We included all the features of a diary, such as the date and time, colloquial language, past tense and many more. It’s been a fun week in 5C.

Online Safety Club

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Online safety club started this week, with each class choosing two new online safety officers. We discussed the SMART (Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliable, Tell) rules and how they can help us to stay safe when we are online. The online safety officers then took some information and posters back to their classes and had a class discussion. Next week we will be looking at an NSPCC questionnaire to help get a picture of online usage across the school.

2S

Monday, 2 October 2017

We have had a wonderful start to year 2 in 2S. We have been learning about lots of different things in the last few weeks. We have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We know that the fire destroyed lots of big,wooden houses We drew some Tudor houses for the front cover of our topic books. We wrote our own setting descriptions using lots of adjectives and expanded noun phrases. We wrote some acrostic poems about fire in our topic books. As part of our sparkly start we became bakers for the morning and baked our own delicious bread. We had lots of fun! This week we are going to become reporters and write interview questions for Samuel Pepys.

In maths we have been learning how to partition numbers into tens and ones using chips and peas. We have also been learning how to partition numbers in different way and count ten more and ten less.

In Science we have been learning about different scientists and inventors. Last week we learned about the inventor Charlies Macintosh who invented waterproof fabric. Today we carried out an experiment to see whether some tin foil, a paper towel, cling film and a piece of felt were waterproof. We made a prediction and recorded the results in our science books.

We have been busy practising our singing for the Harvest Festival on Friday and cannot wait to perform!
