Sparkle

This week Sparkle went home with William for his super artwork and fantastic perseverance in all of his lessons. Well done William!

Sparkle is our class mascot who loves children that always try their best in the classroom and around the school.

Each week, the child who has demonstrated this attitude, gets to take Sparkle home for an adventure and write about it in the journal.

Paddington Goes to Town

We have tried to retell the story of Paddington in the Bathroom (Paddington Film) by using our previous knowledge of story telling. We then looked at writing storyboards as a whole class to help us remember key events of stories. This helps us include speech and descriptive words in our writing as we can use it to plan stories. We are going to be exploring other Paddington films and being to create our own key word mats and character profiles to help develop our writing.

Trains and Journeys

Our first topic for the autumn term is Trains and Journeys.

Geography

In geography, we have been looking at different maps and their symbols. We have also practised giving grid references alongside our knowledge of compasses and directions. We looked at how to use compasses and what they do. Once we had done this, we challenged our friends to some tricky direction problems!

History

In history we have been learning about the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the work he did. He designed and built the Royal Albert Bridge which is the bridge trains used when travelling across the river Tamar from Devon to Cornwall. We have written our own fact files about him which we are now going to be using to help us explore some of his work in more detail.

Art

In art we have been investigating railway posters and identifying techniques that the artists used. We then looked at Becky Bettesworth who has created artwork based on the 1930’s railway posters. We have also been practising our sketching and developing our colour knowledge, including colour mixing. We also experimented with tinting and shading. We are now going to be planning, designing and creating our own railway posters during our topic lessons.

Maths

We are looking at numbers and their values this week. This includes adding and subtracting 100 from a given number and the relationships between different numbers. We are also using apparatus to help us solve different calculations and help with out maths learning.

More learning we are proud of
