Macbeth… should he … or shouldn’t he…?

We created a conscience alley to help Macbeth decide what to do about King Duncan. We gave opposing views (for and against). Class 6 are wondering what Macbeth will decide to do….

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to Class One, this term we are having  a HUGE push on reading. We are lucky enough to have fabulous reading volunteers that come into school to listen to the children read, in addition we listen to the children read every week during their Guided Reading session. However, we would also like your help.

If you are a parent, please could you find the time to read with your child at least three times a week. It doesn’t have to be the whole book and you can be as inventive as you like about the location (We would love to see pictures!!) If you are a member of Class One then ask your parent or carer to listen to you read. Maybe they could read you your favourite story afterwards. Remember, if you read 3 times in 1 week you will receive a reading token. Good luck, I hope you enjoy reading as much as we do.

Welcome back Y5 !  Hope you had as good break.

This week we have started one looking at one of my favourite poems – The Highwayman.

We have started to learn parts of it from memory, studied the poem’s structure and met a couple of the characters.

I’m looking forward to finding out more about this classic story over the coming weeks.

Keep writing …..

This week in Y4

 

English:  This week we have been exploring the world through the eyes of a beautiful Egyptian princess, Heb-Nefert.  We have described her character and examined the text carefully looking for adjectives, verbs, nouns and adverbs.
Find out more about Heb-Nefert at:

Maths: We have enjoyed learning more about multiplication – and in particular the Commutative Song – “flip flop go the factors”!!
If you would like to practice this at home the link is here:

History/Geography:  
We learnt about the development of the Egyptian civilisation and why the River Nile is so important to the Egyptians.   We know the Egyptian period is separated into the old, middle and new eras.  We can describe some uses of the River Nile.
This photo from space shows how the River Nile dominates the country of Egypt and its settlements.
