This morning class Ash have been busy learning the next part of our dance for Sports Day. We have explored some moves inspired by Bollywood dancing, placing our hands exactly and keeping careful balance. Thanks to Megan and Jazz from CM Sports who made it a really exciting session. Here are some of the children in action.
This afternoon class have been enjoying a real treat – the Ash class talent show! The standard was amazingly high and we enjoyed dance routines, drama, poetry, magic tricks, singing, music, sketching and much more! There of course had to be some winners and Mrs Armstrong really struggled as she wanted everyone to win! Below are the winning entries:
First place – for a spine tingling piano performance of a haunted house.
Second place – an energetic and graceful dance routine.
Third place – an amazing landscape using aerial perspective and effective colour mixing.
Well done to everyone who took part!
This week we will be looking at the River in more depth after our field work last week. Here is some information that might help you.
This week’s spellings include some statutory words plus personal spellings for your child. The spellings for each child will be individual so please see their home spelling sheet for your child’s specific spelling list this week.
Today we have been exploring multiplication in class. First we made arrays and then moved on to drawing number lines, which we then checked with the place value counters. Then some of us started using a jotting (the box method) to record our calculations. Each time we used the place value counters to check we were correct.
Yesterday we had a fantastic morning researching the amenities offered in the village centre. The children made careful observations and decisions about services offered. Then we walked to the Riverside Walk to explore the river. We saw a floodplain, some meanders and tributaries. The children looked carefully at the riverbanks and made detailed observational drawings. Thank you to all our helpers, who asked the children challenging questions. Well done everyone – super geographical skills!
Due to the children’s interest in rivers we have changed the homework task for next week. Rather than the reading comprehension listed on the grid, the children will be asked to research a river over the holidays. Please find details below.
Here is a link to this week’s homework, an amenities study of the village.
