We have had a great week celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We began the week learning about Queen Elizabeth II. . We focused on the question – How has life changed since the queen? We compared popular objects from the 1950s to what they look like today. We looked at the similarities and differences. In Art we made a silhouette of Queen Elizabeth II and flicked paint on it. On Friday, we had cake, drinks and dance in the playground.
In English, the children completed their adventure stores, edited them and wrote them up in neat. The stories were exciting, engaging and enjoyable to read. It was a pleasure to read each one, I was impressed that the children used adverbs, adjectives, prepositions and conjunctions to interest the reader.
In Maths, we have continued to solve problems involving fractions. The children have been ordering and comparing fractions.
Please continue to practise timetables. The children should know the 3, 4 and 8 timetables.
Ancient Egypt Day – Monday 6th June 2022
We will be undertaking an archaeological expedition (from the classroom!) to Ancient Egypt.
Not to give anything away, but we will take part in an investigation of a looted tomb.
It would add to the fun if the children can come dressed for the part as either Ancient Egyptians or as amateur archaeologists!
Also during half-term, why not take some time to find out about Ancient Egyptian grave goods.
Have a wonderful holiday!
