    DCIS Proms 2016

26th May 2017

English

The grammar focus for this week was using apostrophes to show possession. The children looked at applying this to singular noun phrases and plural noun phrases. Continuing on with our work on ‘The Willow Pattern Story’, the children wrote an alternative ending. They then wrote their own version of the story using their alternative ending. To end the unit, the children designed and created a willow pattern plate depicting their own Chinese story.

Maths

This week in Maths, the children have continued revising the different areas of the subject through problem solving. They have then started doing their Maths assessment, demonstrating everything they have learnt this year. The assessments will continue during the week after half term.

Project Work

This week in Project Work, the children showcased their outfits in a fabulous fashion show for their parents. Additionally, they finished off some artwork and discussed the impact of fashion and the countries that produce clothes.

Mandarin

This week, the students revised and consolidated their topic on sports through various activities such as Quiz Quiz Trade and flashcard games. Additionally, they played group games to review their understanding of prior knowledge and current topics. Through Kagan activities, the students revised the order and sequence of sentence structures.

Computing

In the code.org lesson, pupils learnt about the difference between an algorithm and a program. They began course 2 on the code.org website to continue learning about computational thinking. Concepts and skills are revisited in each course while delving deeper each time.

Physical Education

During Rounders, pupils have been exploring ways to strategically bat in looking at directional batting.

In swimming, pupils have been looking at backstroke by breaking down the stroke into sections.

Music

This week, Year 4 students explored intervals - the difference between two notes. Students learned how to identify 3rd and 5th intervals on the stave and on the keyboard. Other music terms such as tone and semi-tone also formed part of our learning discussion.

Homework

Due to the half term holidays, there will be no homework to complete or spellings to learn.
