This week in Literacy we will begin investigating various forms of poetry. We will look at how a range of poets use different literary techniques to add power and pathos to their work. To do this, we will link our writing to our World War 2 Themed Learning topic and continue to imagine what life would have been like for an evacuee in 1939 England. Having studied various forms of poetry we will then begin to write our own, concentrating on using advanced metaphors and similes to give our work dramatic power.


Metaphors, similes, World War 2, evacuees


This week in Maths will be learning all about angles. To start with, we will be revising the various types of angles and then look to identify them in complex patterns. We will then move on to look at the accurate measuring of angles using protractors, looking to be as precise as possible and identify whether our answers are logical. Finally, we will move on to looking at diagrams that are not drawn to scale and see how our knowledge of angles can lead us to find missing data without using a protractor.


Acute, obtuse, reflex, protractors


We will be continuing our World War 2 topic and building on the foundations of knowledge we have laid in the first weeks back. The children will be investigating the Blitz and discovering what life was like for children under the rain of bombs falling upon London during 1940. They will also be using a range of challenging techniques in Art to construct a multi-layered piece of printed work that depicts the destruction of war. This will be coupled with an investigative scheme of work using laptops and iPads to study how shelters were built to keep the population safe from falling bombs.


Blitz, evacuation, bombing, incendiary, lino


This week the children will use a new touch typing program and will continue to learn the coding language ‘Python’.


Touch-typing, coding, Python


In PSHCE this term we will be looking at teamwork and collaborative working.  We will focus further on fostering new relationships, creating rules and expectations for the group and how to work together successfully.  


Trust, bravery, commitment

Welkom bij Reisbureau SDS!

De medewerkers van KS2 van Reisbureau SDS blijken zeer ervaren reizigers die fantastisch kunnen putten uit eigen ervaringen bij het oriënteren, plannen en beschrijven van hun reis voor de reisbeurs van donderdag 29 september a.s. . De leerlingen werken deze week verder aan hun reisprogramma: een beschrijving van dag-tot-dag incl. details over slaapplekken, kosten, vluchten, etc.

Deze week ronden we alles af, zodat we ons kunnen richten op de kraam voor de reisbeurs. Leerlingen mogen de kraam naar eigen inzicht indelen. Denk daarbij niet alleen aan visueel materiaal, maar vooral ook aan de andere zintuigen (lekkere hapjes, muziek uit het land...). Wellicht kunnen de ouders hier een handje bij helpen.

Spelling met Staal (spellingmoeilijkheden in het rood)

Groep 4: klankzuivere hakwoorden, kilowoord, zingwoord, luchtwoord

Groep 5: klankzuivere hakwoorden, luchtwoord, zingwoord, plankwoord, kilowoord
