Our Class Agreement
We shared our thoughts on what makes a great learner, teacher, classmate and lesson and the reasons why school is important. We then used these ideas to draw up our class agreement.
We begin every morning with a fun, fitness workout. Have a look at the kids zumba we have been enjoying!
We are learning about
Materials and their Properties
We will carry out a range of investigations to help us learn about the many properties of a range of materials.
This half term we are developing our skills in
Striking & Fielding
We had to use our teamwork skills to complete two challenges. The first was to build a pyramid of cups using only string attached to an elastic band and the second was to build the tallest structure from spaghetti that would support a marshmallow on top - the tallest structure was 43cm!
Our RE Topic is
'Gifts from God'
We will consider the many great gifts God has given us through his creation and reflect on the important role that we have as stewards of the earth.
We tested a variety of materials to find out which had the best level of absorption. Our results enabled us to conclude that kitchen roll and paper towels were the best for absorbing water.
Homework is set every Friday
Maths and English will be sent out alternately on a Friday.
We also ask that you spend some time each evening reading and practising spellings and learn its.
Leader In Me
This year we will continue to develop our leadership skills through our work on the 7 habits. We have created a Leader In Me tree in the classroom and we each created a design to represent ourselves on the tree.
Each week we plan and lead a worship for the rest of the class. We gather together and spend some time listening to and reflecting on the Word of God.
Each week we have a ukulele lesson with Mr Eady. As well as learning to play a range of songs we also learn many interesting facts about music.
