Roses fir Year 4

We used drama and role-play to act out the War of the Roses. We belonged to either the House of York or the House of Lancaster.
The War of the Roses lasted from 1455 to 1485.
The Houses of York and Lancaster fought over who should be the King.
In the end, Henry VII won and married Elizabeth of York.

 

We also used different sources to find out historical facts about Tudor Monarchs. We used primary sources (portraits, accounts of the time) as well as secondary sources (books, IPADs). We presented our research as a group. We discussed “bias” in the way the monarchs were painted in their portraits and in some of the primary accounts.
Did you know that Edward VI was only king for 6 years?
Did you know that Elizabeth I gave nicknames to her favourite people?

It’s all counting… but not quite as we know it.

This week in Maths we have been looking at place.  To practice our place value skills we have been looking at numbers from other languages and trying to figure which number is which.  

With lots of discussion and head scratching we did it !! Well done year 5.

Keeeeeeeep counting…

A WARM WELCOME TO OUR NEW STARTERS IN RECEPTION CLASS!

This half term’s enquiry question: WHY IS IT GOOD TO BE ME?

Reception class children have settled really well into their new class and have had great fun exploring their indoor and outdoor learning environments.

They have been busy painting self-portraits and talking about themselves and their families. The children have enjoyed adding home and school learning 

to their ‘Ideas and Interests’ working wall as well as asking questions about the world around them.

The children have explored our school forest area and looked for signs of Autumn; sketching what they have seen, drawing and labelling pictures and taking I-pad photographs of interesting leaves, trees and other natural objects. The children’s ‘Maths Everywhere’ working display is also developing well as they add their ideas and thinking about different aspects of maths. There has been lots of numicon investigating alongside our EYFS assistants (Key Stage 2 pupils) as well as recognising and ordering numerals. Super role-play and conversations have been taking place across the setting but particularly in the mud kitchen and ‘Tankersley Shoe Shop.’ 

What a fantastic start to the new term! Well done everybody!

Rumble in the Jungle

Well done to all the children in Class 2. You have made a brilliant start to the new academic year!

In English this week we enjoyed listening and reciting poems about jungle animals. The children loved picking out the rhyming words and identifying the verbs and adjectives in the poems. In May when the children are tested they will have to know what a verb and adjective are.

E.g. High light the verb in the sentence.

The monkey was jumping  from tree to tree.

On Thursday the children had a go at writing their own poems about a lion, monkey or elephant. We will be displaying these poems on large cut outs of monkeys which are going to hang from the ceiling in our classroom. So look out for the cheeky monkeys in Class 2 next week!!

Thank you to all the children who have completed some brilliant homework.
