This week our Pupil of the week is Maryam. She has shown she is a Successful Learner able to learn independently and as part of a group; and a Confident Individual who is achieving success in different areas of activity. Well done! 🙂
This week during our RWI lessons, we have revisit the sounds we worked with during this first part of the term, and introduce the sound “air”. We practiced our reading, spelling and writing of words with this sound, and of tricky words too. You can click on the sound to practice at home too!
We have celebrated this week the School Diversity and Equalities Week. We created unique monsters, with different looks and abilities; shared them with our classmates; and discussed what made them different and unique, but also what things they had in common with the other monsters. You can find their lovely work below, they did a fantastic job!
Linked to that, we talked about how each of us are unique, and how rewarding is having people around us that have different interests, skills, physical appearance, personality… We read a story about the theme, and wrote about the differences and similarities between a classmate and themselves.
We also enjoyed a very interesting discussion with Mrs Henry, during which we developed our understanding of the equalities and the stereotype concepts. We had the chance to share our opinions and thoughts about it, and learned about the importance of not stereotyping people because of the way they were born, their gender, where they come from, their family structure, their believes, their abilities, their interests…
Following the lessons taught during the previous weeks, we have revisited the analogue clock, the minutes hand’s function, and the half past concept. We have started learning about digital clocks, and how they link to what we know about clocks so far.
They can practice telling the time at home, they will love to show you how much they have learned!
During this week, we also practiced number and shapes sequences. They created their own sequencing patterns with shapes and letters, and worked hard to find out the rule followed on different number sequences (counting in 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s, forwards and backwards). Great job!
During this week we focused our Topic lesson on the Ring of Fire, an area of the Pacific Ocean which is home to around 75% of the world’s volcanoes. We learned about volcanoes: how they are formed, the different parts, the different types, how they erupt… We watched videos about how volcanoes erupt on land and underwater, and we created our own volcanoes too! They had an amazing time getting them ready and watching them “erupt” in the playground (you can find some pictures below).
