Another wonderful week in Birch class flies by! This week…
We completed our second unit of maths, the four operations, and I’m looking forward to see the results of Monday’s assessment paper; I feel that they’ve really come a long way over the last 5 weeks, particularly with times tables – thank you parents for supporting with that at home!
In Literacy, Michael has washed-up ashore on a mysterious island somewhere in the South Pacific. We’ve designed our own desert islands and we’re looking forward to using the great vocabulary we’ve ‘magpied’ from Michael Morpurgo in own stories next week.
In Science, things were getting pretty sugary as we tried to create a classification key with over 20 of our favourite sweets. Zero sweets were harmed in the process of creating the key, but some are now closer to extinction.
In our Geography lesson, we learnt the different regions of England as well as wondering why the largest (South West) was the least populated. We also used atlases to find all of the UK’s major cities.
In RE, we looked at the story of Rama and Sita and discussed how we thought Hindus might use this story to help them be good.
And, in PE, we got very rosy-cheeked and puffed out during Mr Ansel’s circuit training!
