Weaving our magic!
Date: 4th Oct 2019 @ 4:11pm
One of the highlights of this week was our work with artist, Mark, on the willow structure at the entrance to school. All of the children braved the coldest morning of the Autumn so far, to get to grips with some bendy, wet willow. Hopefully, you've noticed our wonderful work as you come into school.
In Maths we have been looking at number bonds. For year 2 this has meant consolidating our work on bonds to 10 and 20, and moving towards 30. For Y3 and 4, we have been making 100 both in tens and ones (which can be tricky!)
In English we have been making our own books of The Three Little Pigs. The children are desperate to share with these with you - so, they should be coming home next week.
In Science, we explored sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks using chocolate (all the best science lessons use chocolate!). The children were able to shape layers of crumbled choccy into firm strata using pressure and heat - just like the real thing. The only difference, was that we could eat our rocks!
In topic, we have been learning about what Stonehenge would have looked like 4,000 years ago. We learnt how some of the stones have moved, been repaired or lost completely over time.
In French, we can now introduce ourselves and say our ages!
Finally, in Music, we started to write our own songs to be played on the ukulele!
Another busy week, but the children continue to impress me with their hard work and super attitude!
