LITERACY

In Literacy this week, we will be of using on the writing of diaries. This will all centre on the story ‘Cave Baby’ by Julia Donaldson, to link with our Themed Learning. The children will initially explore the features of a diary to create a self-assessment checklist. They will then use the events and feelings of the main character in ‘Cave Baby’ to turn this lovely children's book into a diary.

MATHS

In Maths this week, the children will be investigating 2D and 3D shapes. Their focus will be on developing language. They will also be linking properties of shapes to angles, such as right angles (90 degrees) and different types of lines, including horizontal, vertical, parallel (two lines on a plane that never meet and are always the same distance apart) and perpendicular (two lines  that meet at right angles or 90 degrees).

THEMED LEARNING

We are moving into our history focus this week in Themed Learning. This will centre on the use of paintings to communicate about life in the past. The children will initially explore a range of cave paintings, and be encouraged to record what they want to find out about cave paintings. This will mean the children will take part in leading their own learning and discovering answers to what they are interested in. Their knowledge and understanding at the end of this short unit will be communicated through the creation of their own cave paintings.

PSHCE

This week the children will be collaborating and listening to each other's ideas. They will also be taking on different roles within a group.

Dames en Heren, Hooggeëerd publiek...!

We richten ons de komende week op het circussmoelenboek, waarin alle circusberoepen de revue passeren.  Ook werken we aan de individuele circusact. We maken een gedetailleerde beschrijving van de act en oefenen de act in.

We lezen in de klas uit het boek De dikke bende van de Korenwolf en de vondst van het stiekeme circus.

Kijk voor inspiratie én instructie (acrobaten, jongleurs) het volgende filmpje van Ketnet over een circusshow:  Ketnet

Denkt u op maandag (Y3 , Y5, Y6) of donderdag (Y4)  aan het biebboek en de Estafettemap? Voor Year 4 hebben we de dag veranderd. Dit kwam beter uit in de planning.

Volgende  week maandag en dinsdag zullen er wat lessen vervangen worden door andere docenten van BISS Puxi i.v.m. de inspectie. Dank voor uw begrip!

Een heel fijn weekend!
