- Uniform Reminder - Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy at http://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/shanghai/puxi/our-students/student-life/our-school-uniform
- PE and swimming are a core part of our curriculum. All children should take part unless they have a note from a doctor or a parent to excuse them. When children are not taking part, we ask that they still bring their PE kit as we can adapt the lesson for them. We can often include them in the lesson as a coach, a referee or to give feedback to others. If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.
- Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
This week in Literacy we will begin investigating various forms of poetry. We will look at how a range of poets use different literary techniques to add power and pathos to their work. To do this, we will link our writing to our World War 2 Themed Learning topic and continue to imagine what life would have been like for an evacuee in 1939 England. Having studied various forms of poetry we will then begin to write our own, concentrating on using advanced metaphors and similes to give our work dramatic power.
The children in Maths will be learning all about angles. To start with, we will be revising the various types of angles and then look to identify them in complex patterns. We will then move on to look at the accurate measuring of angles using protractors, looking to be as precise as possible and identify whether our answers are logical. Finally, we will move on to looking at diagrams that are not drawn to scale and see how our knowledge of angles can lead us to find missing data without using a protractor.
This will be our first week with iPads at school so we will teach a range of lessons on their safe and responsible use, particularly focusing on E Safety. We will also be continuing our World War 2 topic and building on the foundations of knowledge we have laid in the first weeks back. The children will be investigating the Blitz and discovering what life was like for children under the rain of bombs falling upon London during 1940. They will also be using a range of challenging techniques in Art to construct a multi-layered piece of printed work that depicts the destruction of war.
Our focus this week in PHSCE will be looking after our possessions and how to make the correct choices when on the internet.
