Hub 2 had a super time making shortbread biscuits and enjoying the results of their efforts. The children also worked very hard, starting to look at fractions in Numeracy and learning about the American Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King. With the weather being so pleasant, the children enjoyed their time outside this week and in PE practised their throwing and catching in a series of circuit exercises. It was impressive seeing how these skills are coming on.
The children created their own talking vegetable puppets, which they found great fun, and all concentrated hard on a creative project which saw them designing and drawing their own comic strips featuring superheroes and villains.
Congratulations to Joshua T – for participating and contributing in Numeracy lessons all week as well as fantastic contributions in Guided Reading, and to Joshua M for fantastic research on Martin Luther King.
Hub 3 made fruit cake independently...the room smelled quite wonderful as they were baking! They worked on reading and identified tricky words using song. They also demonstrated that the number of objects remain the same when they are rearranged. With the glorious weather we are having, it was important for the children to understand why and how to stay safe in the sun. They identified a number of ways to avoid sunburn and skin damage and stay safe and healthy in hot weather. The children designed sock puppets and all enjoyed time in the sensory room.
Congratulations to CF for reading tricky words and RKN for developing his confidence in letter and number formation.
F1 are working on so many interesting projects at the moment. The children finished their autobiographies, which has required great concentration and effort. They also used multiplication, addition, subtraction and division to complete a maths project. The Big Apple was the subject of a research project, with children researching the history of New York and the many things it is famous for. Great effort!
Both animal and children enjoyed the group's time with Ernie, the therapy dog and the highlight of the week was unboxing andbeing the very first to touch and play the school's brand new Electric Guitars! The children are looking forward to developing their playing and composition, but simply being able to handle the instruments was very exciting.
F3 have had a wonderful week, concentrating on descriptive writing in English and ordering integers in Maths. They also learned about the bloody and brutal French Revolution as well as the colourful Indian Hindu festival of Holi. A beautiful and peaceful walk to the reservoir was an occasion for the children to learn about comparing landscapes whilst creativity and artistry were developed through watercolour paintings of the Northern lights. Finally, the children were amazed to learn how to make their very own Jammie Dodger biscuits!
What a busy, varied and fun week it has been...now all our approaching the very last week of the school year with much anticipation.
