This week in Literacy the children will be learning about rhyme in poetry and kennings. They will use their knowledge of vocabulary and rhyming dictionaries to produce rhyming poems. They will then spend time reading and discussing kennings to enable them to create their own alliterative kennings at the end of the week.


In Maths the children will be working collaboratively on a Maths project inspired by chocolate. They will be helping Mr. Wonka to decide what to sell in his new gift shop. The children will be given information on products, a budget and need to decide what steps they will have to take to ensure his money is well invested and customers want to buy his merchandise. This project is all about the children using the Maths skills they have learnt across the year and applying it to a real life situation.

Themed Learning


Children will be starting their 3D art project this week. They will start the week by learning about the artists Peter Anton and Claes Oldenburg. They will then look closely at chocolate bars and then start to make their own papier mache chocolate models.

Alle leerlingen van KS2 zijn keihard aan het werk aan de ‘Hoe-overleef-ik-Azië-gids,’ zodat ook u hem van de zomer mee kunt nemen op uw Aziëavontuur! De oriënterende fase is voorbij en alle leerlingen zijn hard bezig met hun onderzoek. Vooral het opstellen van goede onderzoeksvragen en het vinden van informatie op internet staat deze week centraal. De leerlingen komen er snel achter dat niet alle informatie van internet bruikbaar is.

Spelling ‘Laat Zien’ is rondgemaild aan alle ouders van KS2. De leerlingen kennen het als het kaartjesspel van spelling wat we in de klas spelen. Dit spel is een goede voorbereiding op de aanstaande Cito-toetsen omdat het de leerlingen wijst op de verschillende categorieën en woordproblemen. Het draagt daardoor bij aan het woordbeeld en aan het spellingsbewustwordingsproces.
