Class 1 have been exploring life cycles in science and covered human, frog and chicken life cycles so far.
The children have enjoyed looking at models of how a chick grows inside its egg until it emerges from it.
We are working on butterly life cycles this week.
In maths we have been learning about different types of measurements. We have covered time, length and weight since Christmas and are learning about capacity this week.
The children have also drawn a plan of their own home and have started to make their home out of recycled materials.
In RE we are learning about the Easter story.
Last week in Class 2 we were lucky enough to have a visit from Mrs Mallows who helped us to make Aztec masks out of clay. They still need to be painted and then fired in the kiln, but are looking very promising so far!
We also made the most of the improved weather during PE, playing netball on Monday and football on Friday. The latter was a particularly well fought game and I was impressed by how involved all the girls were.
Finally, we began writing some rather interesting instructions - How to get into Mr Wonka's Chocolate Factory (but without a golden ticket). I look forward to seeing how these turn out.
The year 6 children have been working very hard revising in SATs club on a Monday night and the year 5 children ave been completing some fabulous pieces of topic homework linked to different countries.
We are making preparations for Easter and learning songs in assemblies ready for our service.
In maths last week we continued exploring subtraction. We practised using pictorial representations for numbers to help us to subtract from bigger numbers, as well as using physical objects.
We celebrated the end of our Easter topic with some yummy hot cross buns. The children commented on the cross on top and also the shape of them "it could be the tomb" or "maybe the hill where the cross was".
