We started using Times Table Rock Stars to practise our multiplication tables- Ruby
We played hide and seek- Samir
We enjoyed making comic strips about Mojo and his moods- Oscar
We enjoyed doing our Maths Assessment- Sokhna
We made pictures of the Solar System in art using water colours, oil pastels and black paper- Reggie
We have had a fantastic week learning all about the way the rotation of the Earth causes day and night to happen across the world. We have been working hard on our non-chronological reports in English and using line graphs in Maths.
This week, we have begun to build on our knowledge of the Solar System to prepare for a non-chronological report. We used drama to reenact the way the planets move around the sun in an orbit. We also welcomed the return of ukulele lessons with Ella; we have started our own arrangement of the song We Will Rock You.
Week One: Welcome back!
We hope you have all enjoyed a welcome break and are ready for a busy term! This week we kicked off our topic of Space with a giant mind map to share what we already know.
Half term is here; it’s time for a well-earned break!
It has been a fantastic start to the new school year and we are all really proud of the way the children have adjusted to the new routines of school life at SMRP. The first term back is always slightly longer than usual and there’s been lots for the children to take on board, so we know that they are looking forward to having a chance to relax and recharge before we head into Term 2. Please take some time over the break to use the Oxford Reading Buddy with your child and make the most of this wonderful learning resource.
In Term 2, we will be learning about Earth and Space and will be sharing the book ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cotrell-Boyce with the children.
PPA will be on a Thursday afternoon and covered by Mrs.H and Mr.Germain.
PE days will remain on the same: Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing the correct kit, consisting of a white t-shirt, black shorts leggings or tracksuit bottoms and black daps or trainers. They will also need to wear their school jumper.
This year, we will be using Knowledge Organisers to share information about what the children will be learning each term in Science, History, Geography and RE. You can find out all about what we will be studying by reading a copy online at the top of this page.
