Spring 2

Ash class should feel extremely proud of their efforts in portraying the Stations of the Cross. They spoke, sang and acted fantastically as they reflected on the significance of Jesus’ sacrifice.

Today we attended a road safety workshop where we had the chance to solve the reason behind a road traffic incident.

For our innovative geography project, we have been using our map skills and knowledge of seasonality to collaboratively plan our own market gardening business.

In maths, we have been applying our learning on area and perimeter to problem solve.

In geography, we have been using our debating skills to tackle some challenging ideas about importing and exporting produce.

We had the opportunity to look at history through Lego by building historical landmarks. We were challenged to do this with just one set of instructions between the whole class.

As part of British Science Week, we were able to join a virtual farm tour where we learned about the farm machinery and daily life looking after animals. We also watched videos on and discussed how anyone can access a career in science by pushing through any barriers they may face. With a focus on how we learn, we looked at artistic impressions of the brain and explored how we strengthen existing connections and make more connections as we acquire new knowledge.

In English, we have been exploring The Highway an by Alfred Noyes and have produced our own newspaper reports and character descriptions.

In geography, we have been exploring where in the world our food is imported from and researching the food miles travelled, to think about the impact on our planet.

In RE, within our topic of sacrifice, we have been thinking about situations when we’ve had to really try to make good choices.

In PE, we’ve been focusing on teamwork and strategy in a range of games, including connect three.

In maths, we’ve had fun playing some games to check our knowledge of converting fractions, decimals and percentages.

In computing, we have been programming microcontrollers to carry out various functions including turning on lights of different colours in sequence, controlling motor directions and following input from switches.

As part of our learning in geography, we went to the Soanes Centre in Mile End to learn about a variety of plants.

We had a visit from a doctor to link to our science unit on human ageing. We enjoyed having the opportunity to ask lots of questions.

As part of world book week, we enjoyed having a reading picnic.

We enjoyed debating what we think is the biggest challenge faced by a farmer.

In maths, we’ve been learning to convert and compare fractions, decimals and percentages. Today we played pairs to practice.

We enjoyed dressing up for world book day.
