Remember, Remember… and Remembrance

Since returning after half-term the children have been very busy with not only their curricular work but with work around key events at this time of year.

The children learnt about what the different coloured poppies represent during Remembrance (Red, White, Black and Purple if you would like to research it yourself). Below you can see a collection of circular books we created to record our findings and we have hung them in the classroom if you would like to see them. Also, around our door, we have created an archway of poppies which I think looks great facing the library.

In addition, to launch our North America topic, we had a guess the flag competition (with healthy treat choices for the winnings).

 

Art Day

For our whole-school art day, we studied the Water lilies by Monet. Children then produced their own versions thinking about tone and shade to represent the mood they wished to display. Here are some snaps from the day.

 

Spectacular September!

The children haven so busy in class for the last few weeks. DARE 25 is in full flow addressing some hard-hitting topics that children are discussing with such maturity and interest. Parents, there will hopefully (COVID dependent) be an assembly to show what the children have been learning about in the second part of Autumn term – keep you eyes peeled.

We are racing through our Maths really well and English is going great as well. In topic, the children have shown a great understanding of the Trade Routes of Early Islamic civilisations as well as the architecture and artistic styles of the time.

In PE the children have been learning the key skills of cricket in our weekly, Northamptonshire County Cricket Club led sessions.

Welcome to wonderful Week 1

What a start to the year for all of the children. Everyone has come back ready to learn and I am so impressed with he attitudes at the start of the year and how well they have started.

This week, we started our Place Value unit by comparing and ordering numbers into the millions. Following this successful start, we started to rounding any whole number to 10, 100, 1000, 10 000, 100 000, or million. There has been some amazing reasoning and identification of mistakes.

In English, the children have started their explanation text ‘The Teacher Pleaser Machine’ which I think you will all agree is a must-have in all classes.

In Science, the children were exploring circuits in their electricity opening lesson and in Topic they were introduced to Early Islamic Civilizations – a topic much more interesting than the title would have you believe.
