The Spring term has just flown by!
The children have learned about rivers and created informational leaflets about a specific river (Ganges, Nile, Mississippi, Yellow, Amazon, Rhine), don't forget to ask them to tell you about their river! They have explored how to write in the style of Roald Dahl after our visit to the Roald Dahl museum. Children have also written play scripts with the help of Fantastic Mr Fox, both acting them out and creating interesting stage directions for the actors to follow.
In maths, the children have worked hard to problem solve and use their reasoning skills and arithmetic to help them solve a variety of problems. Children in Y3 have worked hard to understand the grid method for multiply a 2 digit by 1 digit number while Y4 has been learning how to use the ladder method to help multiply 3 digit by 2 digit numbers. Their methods and strategies have grown in adding, subtracting, dividing and working with fractions of amounts.
Children have thoroughly enjoyed learning handball and volleyball in indoor PE and have even had two inter-house competitions, one for handball and one for volleyball led by Y5/6 sports captains.
They are looking forward to the Summer term and the exciting learning that will take place!
A group of 10 year 3/4 children were able to attend the Evendons STEM fair on 23 May. There were many exciting exhibits. Some of the children's favourite parts were seeing robots a group of year 7 children had made, learning and see goats, baking on a fire pit, seeing a variety of different rocks, respiratory life saving equipment and just seeing all the exciting exhibits set up.
