We will be using the design thinking process to help us design a plane using various types of paper.

This is linked in with our thinking of how travelling by plane has an impact on our environment and the world around us.

PSHCE

This term our new PSHCE / well-being program will begin.  The first core value covered is collaboration.  This is the ability to work constructively with others, and children will learn to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to support agreed solutions. In doing so, they will strengthen their sense of teamwork and realize where they lack certain skills; which they can later hone.

KEY VOCABULARY

Collaboration, groups, teamwork, skills

DUTCH

Deze week staat natuurlijk in het teken van de citotoetsen!

Verder gaan we dieper in op poëzie en dichtkunst. We gaan verder  met “Raadgedichten”. Daarbij lezen we elke dag/week een nieuw gedicht, waarvan 1 woord ontbreekt. Samen filosoferen we over het woord dat mist.

We maken in Year 3-4 een start met dansen op gedichten. Bij year 5-6 gaan we beginnen met het schrijven van eigen gedichten aan de hand van volksverhalen.

Voor spelling oefenen we deze week nog even extra op de categorieën die aan bod komen tijdens de citotoetsen!
