Summer 2 Pre-Learning Tasks
To say the least, this Spring term has been anything but what we expected! I have been so impressed by 3B's resilience and determination through this challenging term.
Starting the term on Google Classroom required a lot of adapting and independence from the children and they engaged and worked hard throughout this time. 3B have returned to school ready to learn with such a positive attitude to both the academic and social elements of school life.
The children have been enjoying socialising with their peers and taking part in the Daily Mile. We have started our new Geography topic, exploring the causes and effects of volcanoes and earthquakes, the children were even able to practice their earthquake safety drill! (pictures below).
Our Science topic of plants have given us the opportunity to identify the parts and features of a plant, as well as planting our own sunflower seeds. Using our learning and scientific skills, we have been observing and recording our plants progress and growth since being back at school.
Have a lovely Easter break and I look forward to seeing you all in April!
3B have had a brilliant autumn term, I am so impressed with how they have adapted and taken the new routine in their stride.
At the end of the first half term, 3B embraced their topic and became Egyptians for the day as they enjoyed a workshop to consolidate their learning on Ancient Egypt.
We have since been discovering life during the Stone Age. 3B have enjoyed our class book about a Stone Age boy named Ug and explored the realities of life in the Stone Age from the main characters perspective. This has linked with our Science and History topics, where the children have further developed their knowledge and applied it to designing games and tools using the materials available in the Stone Age.
As we entered December, 3B were very busy taking on the challenges a socially distanced Advent service presented. They were all fantastic, learning their lines, hymns and actions, even in the cold conditions!
Our Geography topic allowed us to explore our local area and school, sketching maps and using keys to help us navigate around them.
I hope that everyone has a happy and safe Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
3B have adjusted brilliantly to being back at school. They have already been producing some wonderful work and I can't wait to see this continue through the year!
In English they have started their new book ‘Lob’ and have been using it’s themes to create poems and write diary entries from the perspective of the main character.
The children have also been enjoying their new reading corner, where they can dive into the world of a book and share their stories with friends. From their lessons and extra reading they have been able to learn more about Ancient Egypt and its landscape. Using their new found knowledge they have created fact sheets and posters for the display board below.
