Summer 1 – Week 2

Can we say a huge thank you to all those parents and carers who attended our Open Afternoon on Thursday, those who attended the End of Key Stage Two Assessment meeting. The PowerPoint for this is attached below and on the homework page. If you have any further questions, please feel free to pop in and speak to a member of staff.

In English, we have published our description of the Galapagos Islands and one of the unique animals located here. Children have really tried hard manipulating their sentence structuring to avoid repetition and take their reader on a journey through the islands. We are all really pleased with their final outcome and the hard work they have put in to achieving this 🙂

In Maths, we have studied Statistics through line graphs, bar charts and pie charts. It has been a week of reading and interpreting data represented in different ways. We have looked at increments on the y-axis; positive and negative numbers in temperature; and fractions and percentages in pie charts. Please take a look at some of the videos attached explaining the learning and the questions your child may receive in SATs.

In Science, we expanded our knowledge of adaptation from plants into animals. The children researched different animals around our world and how these have adapted over time to suit their environment. They have then written a report about these findings.

In History, we studied Charles Darwin and created a single-page spread to show the important stages in his life and what made him such an influential person today. We are so pleased the children have been able to share with you the variety of single and double-page spreads they have created throughout the year to showcase their wealth of gained knowledge and understanding within a range of topics and subject areas.

Today, the children created their sketchbook and then planned their sketchbook casing to protect their sketches when exploring the Galapagos Islands later this term. They measured then planned what their sketchbook casing will look like, in preparation for its creation next week.

The Pupils of the Week this week are Mollie for her contributions to descriptive writing and the powerful imagery she created through her choice of words, and Bethany for having super working behaviour demonstrating concentration and listening skills to her peers.

In Maths, we have some Times Tables Superstars who are JOhn, Dominic, Archie, Zak, Shia, Faheem, Isobelle, Eithan, Zarwa, Inaya, Grace, Ajeet, Layla.H, Simar, Gracie, Layla.Bu, Alex and Kitty!

In English, we have some Super Spellers who are Zak, Alife.M, Archie, Faheem, John, Layla.H, Ajeet, Hachem, Roman, Simar, Riley, Madeline, Alex and Lissie!

We are looking forward to next week with the children as we continue our journey into our topic 🙂
