Autumn 2 Week 2

In preparation for Anti Bullying Week, the children took part in a workshop to understand how to recognise bullying and how to show kindness to people who are being bullied. The children acted out lots of scenarios to show their understanding. Next week we will complete different activities about bullying and being kind.

In Maths, we have been learning about the magnitude of number. The children have been filling in missing numbers on a number line by finding a halve and a quarter to help justify their answers. Then they have been explaining why they have chosen a number. Please continue halving numbers.

In English, we have been reading newspaper reports and identifying the features. We have been comparing facts and opinions. We made a list of facts about our school and opinions about the school. Next week, the children will be using the skill they have learnt to plan and write their newspaper reports.

In PE, we took part in our first karate session. The children’s focus and participation was excellent. We also learnt how to put tags on in preparation for learning about tag rugby next week.

In Religion, we have been identifying the symbols of Advent. The children made their own Advent wreath and explained what each candle is.

In Science, the children have been learning about how muscles work. The children had the question ‘Do people with longer legs jump the furthest?’ They planned their own investigation to find the answer.

In Geography, we made graphs to show temperatures and described the amount of rainfall.  We also continued learning to play the recorders.
