Although we are not actually in school together, we are continuing to work on our curriculum.
We are dipping into the curriculum on Rivers, Romans and Sound. Tasks will be set, that are suitable for you to complete at home.
Our English and Maths work will be based on work we have already completed, ensuring that you keep these strategies and methods in your mind. We will be using Learning by Questions, Mathletics, TTRockstars and others to support you with this.
Remember if you need any help with your work or need to discuss anything, please contact me through SeeSaw.
Here I would like to include a sample of the work that you have completed so far. I am sure you will agree, it is of a very high standard and I am extremely proud of you all.
This half term, we would have been studying Islam in our RE lessons. To begin with, we have researched The Five Pillars.
We have gone on to look at some of the different festivals that are celebrated each year.
Our History work this term is about The Romans. To begin with we have looked at Roman Gods. We carried out research about the gods and then created Top Trumps Cards for each of them.
As homework is now all online, it will be set on a Monday and the children will have all week to complete it. There will be work on Mathletics, TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed.
Swimming and PE
The children will have swimming lessons on a Monday afternoon and, for this half term, they will have PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that the children have the correct kit in school.
We are extremely proud of April. She has donated approximately 10 inches of hair to The Little Princess Trust. This will be made into a wig for young children. Just look at the difference.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our Mindfulness sessions with @sgmindfulness. We have learned a selection of techniques to help us focus our thinking and ensure that we are 'in the now'.
During our final session we made bead bracelets that we can use to help us focus our breathing. There are 10 beads on the bracelet to encourage us to take up to 10 focusing breaths.
As part of our wider curriculum topic of The Shang Dynasty, we are designing and making a Shang Chariot.
As part of our new history topic, The Shang Dynasty, we have had visitors from UCLan's Confucius Institute who have come in to talk to us. We have listened to information about The Shang Dynasty.
We have also made a Fang Ding using Origami.
We are very excited to be studying Ancient Greece. As our learning progresses we are going to be hosting an Olympic Day for the rest of the school. We will also be celebrating our learning by holding an Ancient Greece Day.
To finish our work on Ancient Greece we were very brave and tried some Greek food. This included: Olives, Feta cheese, Houmous, Tzatziki, fresh figs, vine tomatoes and Pitta Bread.
We used the ingredients that we had tasted to create a delicious Greek Salad. (Some of use enjoyed it more than others!!!) We chopped the salad vegetables and used our hands to combine the ingredients. We then tasted our finished salads.
What a fantastic day we have had today. The children have been able to share, with their adults, the work that they have done over the last term. I would like to say a massive thank you to you all for the costumes that you provided for the day. I am sure that you will agree the children put on an amazing performance this afternoon.
Take a look at the amazing project homework that the Rhinos have produced. We have a clay amphitheatre, Greek shields and facts about Ancient Greece presented in many different ways, to name but a few. Thank you to all of you at home who supported the children in producing such fantastic pieces of work.
On Thursday 7th November we had our first class visit to Leyland Library.
