What have We Been Up To?

We have carried out assessments in reading, maths and grammar this week. The children worked very hard on them and are progressing well.

Topic - We carried out a survey of features that children in the class have, such as eye colour, shoe size, the ability roll their tongue and whether their ears are attached or detached. This information was then used to produce bar charts. We have also looked at how different animals and plants have adapted to different environments and how these changes have benefited the organisms. 

PSHE and Computing - As it is Anti-Bullying week next week, we spent time discussing different aspects of bullying, what it is and what it looks like. We also discussed ways we can keep ourselves safe online and wrote a script for a sketch where some of the key messages will be shared with younger children. The children worked in groups and have decided how they will present this.

Art - We are linking art to our reading of Kensuke's Kingdom and the artist Hokusai. The children have used inspiration from Japan and Hokusai to begin to design a nature scene which will be painted on shells using acrylic paint.

Music - We used the chime bars to begin to play the tune of a jazz piece which we have listened to in class.

Don't forget Children In Need next Friday!
