Bubblethon!!

After all our efforts with assessments, we managed to earn a class ‘Bubblethon’ reward! We had lots of fun blowing, catching and chasing bubbles! A very different ‘P. E.’ Lesson! It was lovely to see the children having lots of fun after their hard work over the past few weeks!

While the Year 3s were away …..

The Year 4s had great fun while the Year 3s went off swimming on Monday afternoon looking at Fauvism and recreating the iconic London Bridge in an expressive, unrealistic way. Fauvism derives from the French language ‘Les Fauves’ meaning ‘the wild beasts’; the Fauves used strong colours and brushstrokes in a painterly, exciting, wild way.

Well done Class 9 for getting the KS2 trophy for last week’s attendance, keep up the good work!

Super Scientists!

Class 7 have been experimenting with shadows. We used different objects to create shadows, and tested to see what happened when we moved the light source closer and further away. We found out that shadows got larger when the light was closer to the object, and that translucent materials did not make solid shadows. We also learnt that shadows can be coloured if light shines through coloured materials.

Today, we have created some portraits of The Highwayman.


We started by drawing an oval shape, which we then halved.  We drew three further horizontal lines for eyes, nose and the mouth.  Here are three examples of finished portraits.

Class 9 have worked very hard learning about time this week…

…converting from analogue to digital and vice versa. They have improved their use of verbs in literacy and experimented with torches, shadow and light in science. The children found the rubik cube fascinating, brought in by one child for show and tell.

Coordinates

This week, Class 10 have been learning about how to use coordinates to create pictures of minions.  It has been great fun!

Class 9 take every opportunity to read their books and really enjoy reading with their reading buddies.

In maths the children concluded the half term converting units of measurement, in literacy they wrote exciting introductions for their fantasy stories and in science they figured out the difference between transparent, translucent and opaque, by looking at the properties of different materials and objects. Half a great half-term break!
