Our week in Blyton - 14th June - 18th June 2021
We've had a another wonderful week in Blyton Class and the children have worked extremely hard. Well done Blyton. We have enjoyed a further week of sunshine, using our special bag of equipment at playtimes and lunchtimes. The children have had lots of fun playing a variety of games.
Just another polite reminder that our PE days for this half term are Mondays and Fridays. Children must always change for Physical Education (PE)/Sports lessons for health and safety reasons and should have their full PE kit in school on the days that they have it.
This week in English, we have continued to look at the classic poem - The Spider and the Fly. The children have loved picking parts of the poem and acting them out. We have also created a story map of our poem to help the children remember the stanzas.
Our grammar focus this week, was to continue to use use appropriate intonation, tone and volume in order to present their story maps to an audience.
We have also continued to read our brand new class novel - Charlotte's Web. The children love reading it and can't wait to hear what happens next.
In maths we have been dividing, by chunking using a number line. We have even begun to use remainders and worded problems involving division.
In our science and topic this week we have continued to think about the parts of a plant and their functions. This involved us going outside and seeing how many different plants we could see and their parts. The children enjoyed drawing what they found.
During our Music lesson, we are continuing to learn the ukulele and the children are really enjoying it.
Within our RE lesson this week, we have been thinking about the qualities and values we expect to see in a good person.
