Year 4 have been studying the Sikh story of the Milk and the Jasmine Flower. We made Modrock bowls and decided on what we thought there was always more room in the world for. We put the words in our bowls. What do you think there is always more room for in the world?
Thank you to all the year 2 parent’s for their comments during the latest parent’s evening. After some observations we have put together this as a resource for you to support your child with their writing and reading.
As you may be aware during the next half term the children in year 2 will be doing the government SAT testing. Please can we reassure parents that these tests are handled in such a way that the children are not put under any pressure. The children already do weekly assessments and we use the SATs only to support our professional judgements.
If you feel that you need to discuss this further then please come and see a member of the year 2 team.
I hope you find this useful.
Well done to all of 2R, we successfully managed to cram into one lesson cooking, ICT, team work skills, literacy and numeracy!
The class had great fun making their Easter nests and even more fun eating them!
The children recorded their methods by using the Learn Pads.
During our DT topic we have been looking at the effects that heat has on bread.
In small groups we cooked some white bread. We described the white bread before each piece was toasted and predicted the changes that would happen.
After we observed the bread we spread yummy butter on and shared the delicious, hot toast in our small groups.
Mrs O’Connor thinks there is far too much eating going on in our classroom this half term, it’s a good job its a healthy eating topic! We are having so much fun tasting all of the wonderful things which can be used to make healthy, tasty sandwiches. Mrs O’Connor’s personal favourite was the spread tasting, we pulled lots of unusual faces for the camera, she found our reactions very amusing. 🙂
We hope you enjoy the pictures of our toast tasting. We have also included some photographs from our other tasting sessions. Both classes have really enjoyed DT this term.
The year 3 team.
In year one, we had a special assembly about the eclipse and we talked about how to stay safe.
when we went back to our classrooms, we observed the eclipse by piercing a piece of paper and allowing the sun to shine on a piece of paper.
The whole school enjoyed our ‘world Book Day’. The day began with an assembly where we all sang a song related to this special day. Lots of book Characters enjoyed work related to various books.
Staff have displayed books they are reading where children can comment or ask questions.
Here are some pictures of us trying the different types of foods! I wonder if you can guess the children who really liked the tastes and the children who didn’t!
In year three we have been learning lots about different kinds of rocks, their properties and how they are formed (our trip to the Wyre Forest is really going to help us too!).
To discover how rocks were formed and to make sure we could remember them we used chocolate! We had lots of fun melting, squashing and stacking chocolate to make our igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock (it tasted really good too!).
We had a great lesson and wanted to share the pictures with everyone.
We would like to say well done to year three today for a wonderful dress rehearsal of our yearly production. Thank you to all of the staff involved in making the props and creating the dances, thank you to Mr shepherd for writing the musical and supplying us with the music for it too.
The children have worked so hard to ensure that this was a success and we cannot wait to perform it to our parents at the concert on Thursday.
The year 3 team.
