Science – good vibrations!

We have begun our topic on Sound and it began with a lot of investigation and exploration.

We needed to understand how sound was made and what the differences were with the vibrations and the types of sound.

So much to investigate with rulers, elastic bands, drums and rice, chime bars as well as tuning forks and water! The children were able to talk about their observations and draw conclusions from their exploring.

Sandwich instructions

Part of our literacy this half term has been to write instructions. We made sandwiches as part of this process to develop our understanding of the exact language needed and also encourage a variety of imperative verbs.

Lunch anyone?

good shepherd biscuits

Many thanks again for the biscuit donations sent in for the Good Shepherd fund raising. The Liturgy leaders went to a celebration of this on Wednesday this week and we contributed to raising an amazing amount from the whole school.

Here are the pictures – some very imaginative parents out there!

Natural sculptures

We took advantage of the good weather and our amazing school grounds. We went in to the woods to create some animal sculptures and we also ended up den building.

We were challenged with working in teams and create an animal from a given choice including a crocodile or a hedgehog.

We then used the resources to build dens and pretty much found the biggest ‘stick’ to do this with!

Lots of collaboration going on…

Spelling Homework

Dear Parents,

We understand some of the children have had some difficulty learning their spellings. I would like to take away some of the pressure so with the children we devised a method of learning the hot spellings in orange and then if you feel they want to learn more there is the extra hot spellings in red. They do not have to learn all the red spellings however could learn one or two more depending on how your child is feeling. There will be a spelling ‘try’ on a Friday where I will give the orange words and some of the red words for the children to have a go at.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask and thank you for your continued support

Biscuits for Good Shepherd

Dear Parents

This is a gentle reminder about the Good Shepherd fund raising we are doing this week as a whole school. Tomorrow is our day for selling biscuits.

If you could please send in your biscuit donations in to class tomorrow. There is no expectation to bake something for this, a packet of biscuits will go a long way towards us raising some money. The year 6 cakes sold out very quickly today so we hope we will be as successful!

Many thanks

Class pharmacy

Caleb’s mum came in yesterday to talk to us about her job as a pharmacist. The class were so engrossed and were very keen to ask lots of questions as well as have a go themselves at prescribing and dispensing in to medicine bottles.

Thank you to Caleb’s mum for giving up her time and for presenting such a wonderful real life experience for the class. You really need to understand your patient to be a pharmacist.

I’m really upset I missed it!

Homework

Dear Parents,

Your child should have brought home some homework this evening.

This homework is for over the holiday, if you have time, and due to the fact this week is a shorter week. This homework is to be returned to school by Friday 20th April.

For Year 2 the children have brought home a maths and an english booklet. The additional maths homework is to carry on on Times Tables Rock Stars. If anyone needs a times table sheet or their log in details I will go through with the children tomorrow.

For Year 3 the children should have brought home a short comprehension activity. They too have times table rock stars work to complete and again I will check log ins tomorrow. The other english homework is to complete the following pages from the CGP grammar book – pages 28/29; 30/31; 72/73 and 74/75.

Many thanks
