HOW YOU CAN HELP US
In literacy this week we have been learning all about the story Noah’s Ark. The children really enjoyed the story and were very knowledgeable about what happens in a church. They followed up their learning in our Noah’s Ark area by retelling the story with the puppets. The children have been writing and drawing what their favourite activity is at school for their reports. In topic the children have built an Ark for Noah and all of his animals. The children discussed what materials would float so fingers crossed all of the animals remain dry. Our numeracy lessons have been very active this week as we have been timing ourselves doing lots of challenges, like how many balls can we get into the bucket in a minute and how many star jumps can we do in a minute. We have also been learning the days of the week and the months of the year so challenge your child to tell you them all. I think they may impress you. In phonics the children have been learning the long o sounds; o (no, go) and the split digraph oe (Joe, toe).
Our next big events are our graduation ceremonies:
Miss Lambert’s graduation will be in the hall from 9am-10am on the 15th July.
Miss Pyatt’s graduation will be held from 2pm-3pm on the 15th July.
Key Stage 1
This week we have continued our learning around time. The children are doing so well with this extremely difficult concept! Please can you continue helping the children to learn the time by looking at some digital and analogue clocks. The children are going to prepare some presentations to explain all that they have learnt about time. Perhaps they could have a go at teaching you everything they know. Can they explain it clearly? Do they know how many minutes are in an hour? Do they know what each of the hands mean and where they should go? Can they write digital times? Start with o’clock, move onto half past, then quarter past and quarter to and if they are ready for it move onto the five minute intervals.
What a hard working week the children have had in topic! Now that they have designed their beautiful sea creature toys, they have spent the week cutting, sewing and stuffing. This is no mean feat with shiny, stretchy fabric that likes to slip and slide out of their fingers – but they have persisted and worked so well together to create some truly fantastic outcomes. Very well done!
We have had another fabulous, fun and jam packed week in LKS2 and again have been extremely proud of all the children for their sensible and mature approaches towards their learning. On Tuesday the whole of LKS2 took part in the Tour de France themed sports day as part of the national sports week. The children had a great time working together as a team to try and earn the most miles in relaying, high jump and climbing. Thank you to everyone who came along to watch our phase assembly this week. I’m sure you will all agree the children have been very busy with their learning over the last half term and it was fantastic to celebrate all of their magnificent outcomes with you.
This week, the children have been learning all about symmetry and how to recognise lines of symmetry in different shapes and patterns. We then have been using our skills to identify lines of Symmetry in world flags and everyday objects. Next week the year 4’s will be solving lots of tricky problems. They will be using all of their knowledge and understanding of the number system and both mental and written strategies.
Don’t forget to check out our blog where you will find lots more information about this week’s learning as well as important reminders and dates for forthcoming events. http://year34rhps.blogspot.co.uk/
