English

The children's learning in English this week started in a very messy way when they made their very own 'mud' pies, inspired by Dirty Bertie. This was used as the inspiration for their writing. They had to come up with interesting words to describe their creations. They went on to select verbs and adverbs to describe the process of making their pies. The children then moved on to write character descriptions.

Maths

This week the children have been revising 2D shapes. They reviewed the names, sorted the shapes and learnt about the properties of 2D shapes. We found 2D shapes in everyday objects and we had fun manipulating 2D shapes to make patterns and pictures.

Project Work

This week, the children continued their project, ‘The Magic Toymaker’. They continued to sort materials and test them in a range of different conditions. They also carried out a test to see how far toys move once pushed and they learnt about the force required to do so. They discussed how to carry out a fair test and recorded their results.

Mandarin

This week, the students learnt how to say, “I am a boy / girl” and how to introduce people in their family such as mum, dad, older brother/sister, younger brother/sister etc. They listened to a story related to this topic, sang songs, rhymes and played a variety of language games.

Computing

The courses on code.org teaches the pupils about computational thinking and logical problem solving. Resilience is a key attribute and it is important to have the correct attitude to finding a solution to a given problem until the puzzle is solved. This week we started learning to use move blocks by getting the angry bird to the green pig.

Physical Education

This week in PE, the children have been learning how to use space in games whilst showing an awareness of when to chase and evade others. In swimming, the children have been working on their freestyle arm pull technique.

Music

In Music this week, the children have discussed the concerto. They have learned that this is a piece for orchestra and a solo instrument. They have listened to a fragment of Shostakovich’s piano concerto n. 2. Then, the children practised playing a C major scale using the correct fingering. Some children are able to play a 5 finger sequence of the scale using two hands.​​​​​​

Homework

The children have received their new spellings this week.
