Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for your lovely cards and the generous gifts.
This week, the children used different everyday items and materials in Science to create simple instruments and investigated them further to see how they can change volume and pitch; making connections between vibration and frequency.
In Art, they looked at Paul Cézanne and his still-life. After learning about his life and discussing his technique and style, the class started replicating his mark making and the effect it creates.
In English, the children started a new unit, based on the beautiful picture book, ‘The Spider and the Fly’. They have written short, interim pieces throughout the week, from advertisements to diary entries, whilst also constructing spider webs using paper straws to create a display area for their later extended writing pieces.
In Maths, the class completed some revisions before moving on to decimal numbers (multiplying and dividing whole numbers by ten).
In RE, we focused on the Feast of the Epiphany, explaining and reflecting on the gifts brought by the Three Wise Men.
PE days, this term will be Monday and Wednesday. Swimming will start next week; please make sure to give permission for children to attend via Schoolcomms.
