We started our week with our termly writing showcase in English. This time, our inspiration was the importance of a healthy diet and the children wrote a narrative about the perils of junk food – with tips on how to lead a healthy lifestyle! Some children also had the opportunity to share their stories with children in year 2 – inspiring them to eat healthy!
Our focus in maths was calculating volume. There are a selection of great tips on this website to support your child with learning about volume and are worksheets from this week are below!
We’ve been learning greetings, colours and numbers in Spanish and the children have been enjoying a number of songs to support them in their learning of these topics.
In forest school, the children have learned how to map read; tie knots and whittle so far. We’ve also been looking at our surroundings in Science as we learn about energy. This has included measuring sunlight and wind power in our school and uploading it to the University of Cambridge’s website to contribute to sustainable research in the area!
You may have heard your child talking about ‘Natterhub’ as well. This is a platform on which we can teach children how to be safe and responsible when communicating online. If you have any questions about it, please do ask your child’s class teacher.
