Welcome to Jade Class!

Our learning this week

It was Stone Age day on Monday......what a great day. We learned so much and joined in with recreating scenes from the Stone Age.

This week in Maths we have been learning all about length, millimetres, centimetres and metres. We have been measuring length and adding and subtracting different lengths.

In English we have been writing our own stories based on the book, The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We have used many of the features we have looked at, including alliteration, double adjectives, similes and sentences of three, to make our stories more interesting. The stories were great!

PSHE- we talked about feelings and what made a good friend. This linked in with anti-bullying week.

In RE we learned about the importance of the 12 disciples of Jesus. It was very interesting!

We had a fantastic Science lesson. We looked at different rocks and their properties. We tested them by adding water to see if they absorbed it, added vinegar to see if they fizzed [this means they contain chalk], put them into water to see if they would float or sink and rubbed them with sandpaper to test their hardness.

As part of our topic we learned about similarities and differences between Stone age and Modern Age. We generated lots of ideas, some of which were quite surprising!

Music was fun, we learned notes D and E on the chime bars and played them, accompanying a piece of music.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mr Sear
