Changes

 

During this topic, we used the book Rhythm of the Rain, which we all really enjoyed. We created some lovely descriptive writing and studied the images along with the text in great detail. Everyone soon realised the water was the main character in this story. We all wrote a good diary entry about the water’s journey throughout one part of the river. Throughout the work, we were able to use our knowledge about rivers and the water cycle.

 

Our model river basins were a great success and everyone gained new technical vocabulary and could explain the different parts of the river. Throughout the use of diagrams and explanation texts, we could explain each part of the water cycle and the processes that occur.

 

This topic has been so busy and we have learnt so much especially expanded our vocabulary! We are now looking forward to our new topic ‘In the garden’.

 

Minibeasts

 

We are all so back to be back at school, it is so good to see children smiling inside the classroom again.

 

Although we have completed lots of work during lockdown, we have continued to learn more about mini-beasts. Everyone enjoyed using the digital microscopes to find out about a variety of mini-beasts, which Mrs Walker found in her garden. We even tried to identify some we were unsure about. After our research, we wrote a fact-file about our chosen bug.

 

In English we have now completed our story – Charlotte’s Web. I know the parents were sad this happened in the classroom not virtually! As a class, we have listened carefully to the story and used our comprehension skills and inference to learn about the characters and how someone’s choices can tell you a lot about their character. At school we described the web and actually made our own spider and Charlotte.

 

In maths we have worked so hard on all elements of time and everyone has improved their time telling and working out durations of events.

 

All of our work in school has just added to our knowledge we learnt at home as everyone worked so hard. Well done to all children and adults and I personally thank you all!

Remote Learning- School Offer

 

Christmas!

Well what an end of the term! We have had an amazing final week. As a school we have tried to recreate all the Christmas events for the children that would have usually happened. The children have taekn part in bingo, flower decorations, making Christingles, Christmas cooking, crafts, wacky races and a party. It was completed by a very exciting visit from Santa. We are so lucky to have such an amazing community around us. Now it is time to relax and enjoy the break as we all deserve it after such a hard working term where all children have made great progress across all areas.

Topic 3

This term our literacy work has been based upon the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. We have used the film to create ideas for our own factory and characters. We used inverted commas to demark speech and this helped us create a very good narrative story.

To follow this we have moved onto instructions where we have begun to design our own chocolate bar.

In maths we have now completed working on all four operations and looking at the inverse. We are using our skills now to solve a variety of problems.

At the end of this topic we will begin to celebrate and work towards Christmas - very exciting!

Topic 2

During this time we have been using the text 'Pebble in My Pocket'. This developed our science and geographical knowledge, whilst we followed the journey of the pebble. We began to learn about volcanoes and described them using some wonderful language. We then moved onto the journey of our own pebble and where it landed over a long period of time.

In maths we have been working on a variety of tasks. We have learnt our shape names and have used them in co-ordinate grids. We have also been building our knowledge of place value and written methods along with continued work on our multiplication tables.

Topic 1

The beginning of this term will be based upon the Victorian era. We will begin with looking at Oliver Twist, moving onto the Chimney Child (Text) and finishing with finding out about Octavia Hill (Who came from Wisbech!).

In maths, we are working on our number and place value in the morning and shape in the afternoon. Obviously we will be looking at tables on a daily basis.

It is a busy term but I know we are all just going to be enjoying being back together in the classroom.

Welcome Back Kingfishers!

I am so pleased to be back in the classroom and to see you all.

Our timetable is now set and we plan to do PE lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday. Therefore, on these days you will be required to wear your outdoor PE kit and others day you come in your school uniform.

We do continue to keep our classrooms well ventilated so remember to bring a cardigan/jumper or coat in case you need it.

As we are keeping all our belongings in the classroom we do ask that you only bring a lunch and drinks bottle. There is limited space available so the less you bring the more space we will have for learning.

Homework will continue to come home on a Friday and be required to be returned the following Friday. This will allow 7 full days for you to complete the one piece of numeracy and one piece of literacy. I am not currently sending any reading homework home so please try to keep reading books of your choice from home. Reading for pleasure is so important.

Our planner is a great way of communicating so please feel free to write any notes in there and when we have seen them we will sign it to say the message has been received.
