On Monday, we started the week with our class visit to The Deep. We had a fantastic workshop all about plastic pollution and how we can help to save our planet. Some children volunteered to take part in some demonstrations, where they had to try and break a plastic bottle....they didn't succeed! After this, we split up into groups and explored the different areas filled with marine life, it was great!
This week, we have also researched more information about the RSPCA. We have decided that we would like to have an 'Animal Dress-Up Day' after half term. This will raise money for our charity through the children bringing in voluntary donations.
On Thursday, we had a fantastic morning learning about Sir David Attenborough (Mr Spetch's favourite person), where the children watched a short tribute video. After this, the children then worked in small groups to complete a biography fact sheet about him. We will be researching David Attenborough more next week, where the children will present short presentations about him. Enjoy your weekend!
Another very busy week for us in Beech Class. In maths this week, we have completed our rounding unit and moved onto numbers to a million. In literacy, we have started our Recount unit of work, looking at the features of a recount and vocabulary used. Next week, we will be comparing recounts and beginning to write our first drafts about our class trip to The Deep in Hull. As a class, we have also researched different charities and fundraising ideas. We will shortly be deciding on our main class charity. Everyone is really excited for our trip on Monday and to learn more facts about Plastic Pollution!
Another very busy week completed! I must say that I am very proud of all of the children who prepared speeches or presentations for house team vice-captains. Well done to the following people on being successful:
In the classroom this week, we have continued our work on Place Value, moving onto Rounding to 10,100 and 1000. The children have found this tricky but have shown great resilience to succeed. We have also finalised our letters to Boris Johnson regarding plastic pollution. All children have worked really hard on this unit and have produced a fantastic final letter. On Friday afternoon, the children researched different charities in the area as part of Feel Good Friday. Next week, we will be deciding on a class charity and fundraising ideas.
Well done to all Year 4 children on what looks and sounds like a great residential at Kingswood.
There were a few sleepy heads in class on Monday morning after a tiring week previously at Kingswood! However, we have produced some more fantastic work throughout the week and learnt lots more about plastic pollution. In groups, the children have produced their very own plastic pollution PowerPoint's with lots of great information. We have also been working really hard on Roman Numerals and Rounding to 10's, 100's & 1000's in Maths. In Literacy, the children have been planning their own letters to write to Boris Johnson about plastic pollution. We finished off the week with a great day on Friday, where the children got to see the Junior Women's UCI Cycling World Championship ride through Hensall. The children really enjoyed seeing the police motorbikes, the cyclists and all of the cars that followed. I can't wait to see what work we produce next week!
Wow what an amazing residential at Kingswood for Years 5 & 6! The children all had great fun and completed activities such as; Nightline, Fencing, High Ropes and Low Ropes to name a few. The children were a real credit to our school and showed lots of determination to complete the activities. Thank you to all the children for making the residential so fantastic! Take a look at the photos below to see how much fun we had!
Wow what a busy first full week in Beech class. This week we have started our place value work in Maths, started to explore letter writing in Literacy and made a great start in researching plastic pollution. The children are already hooked into our topic and are starting to think of their own ways to reduce plastic. As a class, we have also explored different sketching techniques and will use these in the next few weeks.
On Friday, we also decorated our own buns and biscuits for the bring and buy sale, which was a huge success! Thank you to everyone for their kind donations and to the children for a great week!
