News from across the school
This week in French lessons, we have been preparing for the season of Advent and the countdown to Christmas. To help us prepare we have created our own French edition Advent calendars using the numbers 1 to 25 in French. We are all quite confident at counting to 25 in French so this is a very special way to help us countdown and prepare to have a Joyeux Noel!
This week in maths we have been looking at time. As a class, we have been focusing on how to improve our ability at telling the time more accurately. Since everyone has some sort of access to a TV outside of school, we carried out an investigation today based on time and duration using the TV guide! Having completed this task, Year 3 have all been made aware of how time is something that everybody uses daily, inside and outside of school. So next time you want to know when your favourite TV show starts, finishes or even how long it lasts, why not ask Year 3!
In maths today the children in year 4 continued their learning of angles and used clocks to investigate which times would create a 90 degree angle. The children used small clocks and changed the position of the hour and minute hand to find times with a 90 degree...
As we are looking at play scripts this week in English, we thought there was no better way to explore this style of text than to actually use it by putting on our own short performances. We used David Wood’s version of The Twits, which he has adapted into a play script for performance. We focused our attention on “The Skillywiggler” scene, working in small groups. Each group then had the opportunity to perform their version of the scene to the rest of the class. The stage directions really helped us convey the characters of Mr and Mrs Twit as they told us how to move, talk and also what facial expressions to make. This has gave us a really good idea of how to structure a play script and also the level of detail that needs to be provided to the actors to help them create the character onstage.
Year 1 have been investigating moving story books. We have discovered that some moving books are pop ups but others have sliders and levers and some have tabs to pull. Thank you to our children for bringing in so many books to investigate. [gallery...
Year 1 have been investigating capacity this week and had great fun putting the coloured water into the different jugs. We also compared a set of jugs by how much liquid they have in them.
