Happy New Year and welcome to the year of the dog!
We hope that you all had fabulous Christmas holidays, whether it was meeting up with friends and family or just spending time at home.
Our topic this half term is called ‘Does the Earth shake, rattle and roll?’ Watch this space for photographs of us carrying out work and activities relating to this and any information about our topic.
On the last day before our half term holiday we had a 'dress up day' to raise money for our charity S.T.A.G.G set up by a group of Year 6 children. The money that we raised goes to Woodgreen Animal Shelter and W.W.F.
Towards the end of the first half of the Spring term, we have been looking at geometry. We carried out a Mastery activity which involved us making some 2d shapes on a geoboard and then describing them using vocabulary such as: perpendicular, parallel, obtuse, acute and right angles.
In Maths we have been looking at place value and what each digit in a number is worth. We found an excellent game that we greatly enjoyed playing that you might enjoy playing at home - all you need is a dice.
Here are some photos of our emotions whilst playing this game!
We have been looking at the work of different artists and have investigated mixing colours, printing with our fingers to create an impressionist style and creating swirls with brushes and fingers to create a Van Gogh style picture. We are really happy with our results.
