We have been working on our writing skills this week by creating newspaper articles about last week's shipwrecks! News has reached home and the children used their reporting skills to tell the terrifying story of the events.
In Maths we have been sharpening up our addition and subtraction and all the children made great progress and seem really confident at using column method.
In RE we looked at the Gurdwara, the place of worship for Sikhs. We enjoyed a great discussion about the similarities and differences between the Gurdwara and a church, and by the end of the afternoon the children were able to talk about what happens in a Gurdwara and how Sikhs use it.
In Geography we looked at what a river was and we followed its journey from the source all the way down to its mouth. The children were able to name the different parts of the river and were confident in using lots of new geographical words!
On Friday we started work on a top secret piece of art! So I apologise if your child came home a bit mucky! We have been using paper mache, and all the children worked well in applying this technique in their work. You'll have to wait until our class assembly on the 18th May to see what we have been up to!
We were very lucky to take delivery of 60 saplings this week. These have been sent by the Woodland Trust and we will be planting them very soon to form a hedge on the school boundary. We have been sent crab apple, hazel, dog wood, dog rose and hawthorn. This will enrich the school environment and create even more habitat for wildlife to use close to our school and that the children will see them using.
