Knowledge mat for our current maths topic - Four Operations

As part of our recovery curriculum and settling the children back into the routine of school, we have been taking time on a Friday afternoon to go on Wellbeing Walks. Hopefully the weather will allow us to continue this.

Welcome back. I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and ready to get started with our new school year. Below, I have attached the knowledge mats for history, Come and See and our first maths topic - place value.

The Year 6 children were finding the area and perimeter of our school playground. We even tried to find out how many marshmallows we could fit in the classroom.

I have attached the home learning resources for Year 5 and 6. Pleases read through the activities and work through them.

Class 4 recently visited the Halls of Justice Museum in Nottingham. The children had a fun and fact-filled day out, as they took part in a reenactment of a real cyberbullying court case and ventured into the depths of the former prison. The children were impeccably behaved, which various members of the public and center staff commented on. Their understanding and knowledge of crime and punishment was amazing and impressed all of the guides. Well done Class 4!

Class Four have been learning about how to dissect animal hearts as part of their work in biology on 'Circulation'- Why are veins blue but blood is red?

In Class 4 we will be exploring the Circulatory system and discovering just how the heart works.  Below is an image of our new topic's knowledge mat.  Discuss this with your children as you question  'Why do veins look blue yet blood is red?'

Animals including humans Knowledge Mat

The children performed their class assembly.  They demonstrated the knowledge they have learnt about over the last six weeks.  It was safe to say the Punishment Parade was very popular.

Crime and Punishment Assembly

Amy, Isabelle, Niamh, Orla, Jessica, Kate, Daisy, keira and Holly had a cake sale to raise funds for, 'Redwings.' Well done to you all. The children raised £64 for their chosen charity.

Our next topic after the Christmas break will be Crime and Punishment. The knowledge mat below is there for you to look at with your children and discuss some of the key vocabulary and 'Criminal Knowledge' facts in preparation for them starting this topic. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.

Crime and Punishment Knowledge Mat

Thank you to the senior chaplaincy team for helping to raise funds for St.Mary's church at the Parish Fair on Saturday 9th November. Niamh and Isabelle managed to raise £49. The name of the puppy will be revealed at Monday worship.

Class Four 2019/20

In Class Four we will be learning about electricity. This will include the history of electricity, how to build a circuit and how to draw a circuit using the correct electrical symbols. Take time to discuss the key vocabulary and the big question during the half term holidays, so that your children are ready to start this topic in the next half term.

In Class 4, the children are responsible for planning and delivering Key Stage 2 worships. Here are some photos of our children enjoying their liturgies.

Class Four - 2018/19

Native American Assembly

I would just like to say a massive well done to all the children in Class 4 for their efforts and determination during their assembly this week.  They should be extremely proud of their performances and the pictures are certainly proof of their achievements.  I am truly looking forward to the next assembly and the children performing another epic!  I would also like to thank parents and family for their continued support and we look forward to inviting you all to another class assembly soon.
