‘Growing Together with God’


Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel


What a superb second week of learning! We really are producing some high quality work as well as getting our heads down and working hard. I really am so proud of Class 4 this week for having such a positive attitude towards their learning. It really is paying off!

Literacy
This week we have completed our non-chronological reports all about the Vikings which will be displayed in our classroom. Class four have worked incredibly hard illustrating these pieces and the results are simply stunning. We have also read the book ‘Here we are’ and have started to plan our own poems based on colours and emotions. We can’t wait to share them with you.

Maths
This week we have been using our place value knowledge to help us add/subtract 100, 1000, 10000. 1000000 and 1,000,000 as well as learning about how to round numbers to the nearest 10,100, 1000, 10000 and 100000.We have been carrying out daily arithmetic challenges and focusing on our 6x tables. We have also really persevered in ensuring that presentation in our books is of the highest standard.

RE
Our RE topic is ‘people’. This week we learnt all about Jacob. Mrs Angel helped us learning the song ‘Jacob and Sons’ from Joseph and the Technicolour Dream coat. We really enjoyed ourselves.

PE
We have been learning all about the rules of High Fives (Netball) this week. Our focus areas have been our footwork and passing. We have also completed a treasure hunt based on the Vikings which was so much fun!

Science
In Science this week we have been learning about how to classify animals into groups.

Let’s Celebrate
Well done to Eleanor and Isaac who have had an exceptional week- for always being kind to others, always being helpful in class and for being determined to achieve whatever you put your minds to. You are our super stars of the week.

What have we been up to this week?

This week we have spent time getting to know one another. We talked about our rights at school as well as what our teachers in school expect from us. We created some digital art which we have displayed in our RE area.


Each week we will share pictures of some of our fabulous work that we have carried out and share what we have been learning so keep your eyes peeled. Our first topic is the Vikings and we’ve had a great start in writing non-chronological reports and learning all about them.
