Term 6- week 3 (Olympic themed fortnight week 2)
Another fantastic week full of sporting activities for the children! This week has included squash, tri-golf and tiempo dance! Take a look at our photos underneath, including a snap shot of our tiempo dancing!
And now for the finale! Friday finished off our Olympic themed fortnight fantastically with our sports day in the morning and afternoon of fun! Miss Burgess was really impressed with all who took part in the races as we all persevered! We hope that all the children enjoyed their afternoon of activities which included golf. archery, bungee running and an assault course! It was definitely a day to remember!
Well done to our star of the week, Herbie! Although he was injured during the tri-golf, it did not stop him from trying other activities! Well done Herbie!
Term 6- week 2 (Olympic themed fortnight week 1)
We have had a fantastic start to our Olympic themed fortnight, jam-packed with all sorts of sporting activities! From American football to volleyball to hockey, we have all had a go at different kinds of sport, whether they were familiar to us or new! Our star of the week went to Jacob as he persevered at all the different types of sport and gave each one a go!
At the beginning of the week, we wrote Olympic pledges. We thought about what we would like to achieve by the end of the sporting fortnight. Our pledges include persevering at new sports, being a good sportsman or simply being a good team player. Ask us about our pledges at home! We have also been writing up to date diaries which help us to think about whether we have achieved our pledges in each activity.
We have also been working hard at our optional SATs this week! All of us have tried our best at maths, reading and spelling tests!
Watch this space for more photos coming up!
Term 6 Week 1
I hope you all came back refreshed after having a week off! It was great to see the children back and ready to learn!
Well done to our merit badge holders this week: Eve for striving to challenge herself in her learning and Lilly for improving her spellings in her writing.
In our maths learning, we continued exploring data handling by looking at Carroll and venn diagrams. The children were very good at categorising shapes and numbers, including 3D shapes, prime numbers and factors. Our homework this week is to find out what foods our friends and family like and to sort our data into a 3-circled venn diagram.
We began to look at our new narrative 'The Great Kapok Tree', which links very nicely with our topic this term: rainforests. We discovered that the book aimed to teach the reader a lesson about why the rainforests were so important and opened our eyes to what was happening around the world regarding deforestation. The children wrote fantastic character and setting descriptions using A CARP PIE to help them! Can you remember what each letter stands for?
On Friday, we began our STAR reader tests online to help us find out our reading ages and find books which will challenge us. We will be using STAR reader to test our knowledge of the books we read and there will even be prizes and certificates for those who have read up to 1 million words! We are looking forward to seeing our new library form into a rainforest and be able to access all the wonderful new books!
