Week Commencing 13th November 2017
Winter has definitely arrived this week, the children were very vocal about the cold today! Please remind them to wear jumpers as well as bring in a coat as the classroom can be cold in the morning.
Throughout the week there has been a focus on anti-bullying awareness week. The children have attended guest workshops, worked on special PSHE lessons and watched a thoughtful assembly by 5C this morning, as well as all wearing blue today! For such an important subject, relevant to all of our children, please talk to the children about what they learned throughout the week.
Back in class they have had a very active week in all subjects.
In English they were writing scripts and story boards to perform adverts for the non-fiction unit ‘Museum of Fun’. They worked really hard, producing and filming some very entertaining and persuasive TV adverts. A few pictures of each group are below and we will try to upload the videos next week!
In Maths they have continued with mental and written methods for multiplication and division as well as apply this knowledge to solve backwards problems – please have your child explain one of those to you!
In Science children were testing different surfaces to see which would have the least and most friction. See pictures of them enjoying the experiments below.
In Topic we have been looking at archipelagos in the world and locating them on a map.
In RE the children learned about Judaism and specifically the Sabbath feast where the Cedar Plate takes centre stage and contains different items that represent different meanings of the Jewish community's escape from Egypt 3000 years ago.
Next week the children will be doing their Cycling Road Safety course, please remember to bring in; bikes, helmets, and a change of clothes, including socks!
Finally, thank you to the parents who helped at the class bake sale this afternoon, we hope you raised lots of money. Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Debenham and Mrs Sandhu
