LITERACY

This week in Literacy we will be building a bank of words to describe a setting. As part of this unit the children will be learning how to use a thesaurus using alphabetical ordering. They will be using their skills to develop rich vocabulary to describe the place, time and environment of a setting.

MATHS

The children in Maths will be learning to measure, compare, add and subtract lengths. They will learn to measure starting at 0 in both centimetres for smaller objects and metres for longer objects.

THEMED LEARNING

In Themed Learning the focus will be on developing the children’s geographical knowledge and understanding. The children will be investigating what the world looks like through the eyes of artists, photographers and cartographers.  They will be investigating maps and symbols and then using their findings to create their own maps. These will then be compared and contrasted to the information you can gain from aerial photography.

PSHCE

The children will be focusing on talking and writing about their opinions, and explain their views with confidence.

Colafonteinen, dansende rozijnen, ballonnen opblazen (jawel, opblazen) met cola, een gekookt ei in een fles toveren én er weer uit... Raar maar waar is het thema van de kinderboekenweek en daarmee van ons Boekenkamp. We doen vrijdag proeven, maken het model van een uitvinding en doen een levend ganzenbordspel. Tijdens de lesweek zullen de verschillende klassen verantwoordelijk worden gemaakt voor de uitvoering van een proef op vrijdag.

De rest van de week staat in het teken van de introductie van het nieuwe thema:

Dames en Heren, Hooggeëerd publiek...!

Alles wat met circus te maken zal de komende weken de revue passeren: functies en beroepen, een circusverhaal, krantenartikelen over het failliete Circus Renz, een actieplan om het circus  te redden... We lezen het boek De dikke bende van de Korenwolf en de vondst van het stiekeme circus.

Er is voor dit weekend geen huiswerk gegeven i.v.m. de korte week.

Fijn weekend!
