Week Beginning 23 May 2016

Next year: As the end of year is approaching we are already beginning planning for the new classes next year. However, this is a long and complicated process. Please be aware that information about new classes and teachers will not be available for several weeks, but we do aim to be able to share this with you before the end of term. We aim to provide stability in moving complete classes to the next year group whenever possible. When classes have to be altered we use our detailed knowledge of the children and consider carefully friendships, gender and nationality. As decisions are based on the number of children in each year group, please help us by confirming your intentions for next year to a-morano@bisspuxi.com , if you have not already done so. Thank you for your patience and support.

MESSAGES

  • Now the weather is getting warmer, please could you encourage your child to bring in a hat and also a water bottle so that they remain well hydrated during the day.

LITERACY  

In Literacy this week we will be continuing to look at the book ‘Millions’ to coincide with the launch of our new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. We will be looking at how the narrative progresses as the author moves into the main events of the story. We shall investigate the way characters and settings are developed first before moving into the narrative. We will also be revising a range of grammar topics covered this year.

MATHS 

In Maths this week we will be revising a range of topics that we have covered over the year. This will involve the children self-assessing to consider what areas of Maths they feel they would like extra help with and the teachers re-visiting key areas of understanding.  We will finish by completing an investigation using algebra to see how the children apply their knowledge in a more abstract question.

THEMED LEARNING

This week is the fourth week of our exciting new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. We will be using the wonderful resource ‘Three Minutes to Change the World’ in which various successful business people make pitches as to how they would make the world a better place. The children will then use these as inspiration for their own three minute pitches. We will also be continuing with our art unit of work on collage.

DUTCH

Dit was het nieuws

De redactie is uitgeput, maar voldaan na het afronden van de artikelen voor het SDS Nieuwsblad en het opnemen van het SDS Nieuws. De resultaten volgen spoedig (de twee oudste redactieleden zetten de krant in elkaar en monteren het nieuws).

Superhelden

Stel je voor... je moeder zit in de gevangenis, maar je weet zeker dat ze onschuldig is. De gevangenis  staat op een streng bewaakt eilandje in de Waddenzee. En aan je vader heb je niks, want die zit van de stress de hele dag te gamen. Wat doe je dan?

Dan bedenk je een onwaarschijnlijk reddingsplan!

Het laatste thema gaat over superhelden. Niet alleen die van de tv, met capes en superkrachten, maar juist de helden onder ons. Wat maakt jou een held? Ken je een held in de familie? Hoe kun je een held worden?

Bi(e)bbezoek en Estafette

Denk aan het meenemen van de bi(e)bboeken op maandag (Year 3, 5 en 6) en dinsdag (Year 4). Estafette doen we op maandag (Year 3, 5 en 6) en donderdag (Year 4).
