Welcome back to what promises to be an exciting and fun-filled new term! I am really looking forward to engaging in some brilliant story telling, fact finding and educational exploration across the whole curriculum. I just know it's going to be great. Let's be the very best that we can be!
Feel free to look over the children's homework menu to see what different opportunities they have to further their learning and embed knowledge learnt at school. Homework is expected to be handed in by Friday, every week. We would like the children to select either a Maths or English homework alongside another subject each week. Therefore, two pieces of homework should be completed.
Gymnastics counter balance and counter tension
During our 'challenge and support' day, we looked at a Chinese Artist 'Xu Huan's style of blow painting. The children used straws to blow paint their beautiful pieces of Art work, relating it to push force in Science.
Using line, tone and shading, children in Atlanta class produced beautiful Greeks Art pottery from our topic - 'GROOVY GREEKS'.
Using paper mache, balloons and disposable cups, we made our own Greeks potteries. We designed, to make them stand out.
We enjoy showing off our creativity skills especially in our home work projects. Here are some of the Greeks home work projects we made.
In Science we have been learning about Forces. The children measured different objects using force meters and measuring scales to find the difference between mass and weight.
Our 3D Solar System home work project was absolutely FUN!!!
Our trip to British Museum was amazing, as we had fun learning more about Greeks pottery, everyday life, gods and goddesses outside the four walls of the classrooms.
We enjoy our learning in class, so we improvised rhythms and pitches to perform different poetry in style of Brian Moses.
We are cryptographers!!!
In Computing, we are learning about communicating information securely using Semaphore. Can you guess the word from each picture?
