Week 6

Week 6

(scroll down for pictures)

I can't believe we are nearing the end of this half term already! The weeks have whizzed by. The children are still working so hard and making me proud every day. 


We started the week with an independent write, to finish our Stone Age Boy unit in English. We have moved onto our new unit, which is Biographies. The children have read a short biography all about the athlete, Usain Bolt, and answered questions about him. They then also ordered events on a timeline from his life. 


Monday was full of design and technology excitement as we explored seasonal foods and food miles. The children learned how eating seasonal foods with less food miles is better for the environment. In groups, the children made a seasonal fruit crumble, which they were very excited about! The crumbles were delicious and it was definitely a highlight of the day tucking into them! The recipe is below - as requested by the children!


In RE we learned about the Jewish festival of Sukkot, and made comparisons to the Christian Harvest Festival. The children went outdoors to make their own tiny Sukkah designs. 


Our addition and subtraction learning has continued in maths and we have used place value counters to support our thinking. 


The children wrote a myth about The Red Lady of Paviland - the name given by archaeologists to some human skeleton remains in Goats Hole Cave in Wales. The Red Lady of Paviland was actually a man and nobody knows how he died!


The children learned how fossils are created and sequenced pictures and captions to show their understanding of the process. 


Have a lovely weekend!
