    DCIS Proms 2016

26th August 2016

English

This week the children have been recounting their holidays both orally and in their written work. They have then moved on to look at what makes them special and the things that they value, using ‘The Important Book’ as a stimulus. The children then used a similar text layout to create their own page for the book.

Maths

This week we have been asking the children to solve some investigations all about themselves. These have drawn on the children’s maths skills previously taught such as measuring and problem solving. They have investigated whether the oldest children in the class are always the tallest in a small group and put their work together to draw conclusions.

Project Work

This week we were introduced to our new Project Work Theme, Brainwave. We have been trying many different games that exercise our brains in different ways such as memory, sequencing and logic. We have also thought about how practising different skills help us to improve and the conditions that we prefer to do this in. Next week we will be continuing with this theme and work to solve new problems and puzzles.

Mandarin

This week, students have learned how to sing a song related to transportation. Additionally, they have played language games with flashcards to consolidate their listening and speaking skills. There have also been hands-on activities related to transportation. An online flashcards programme will be introduced in the next Weekly Round Up Email.

Computing

Computing lessons will start next week.

Physical Education

In PE Lessons this week,  pupils having been working on their ball familiarisation skills as well as the ability to use space safely in and around others. They have begun to perform some basic throwing skills as they work independently and in pairs. In swimming, the children have been learning about being safe in and around the pool, along with building their water confidence by playing a variety of aquatic games.

Music

This week, we introduced ourselves. House rules were set. The children learned one monophonic non-sensical spoken song and one canonic syllabic model song.

Homework

The homework will start next Friday and will be due in on Wednesday. In the meantime, please keep up with 15 minutes of daily reading. More details will follow on the Curriculum Evening on Tuesday.
