Key Stage 2 - Start of 2019

September in Year 4

We have had a great start to the new school year in Year 4. 

In maths we have been revisiting the multiplication facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 timestables including the related division facts. 

In English we have been securing our understanding and use of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. We have looked at punctuation including inverted commas and have started our new book called The Lost Thing. 

During Topic time we have begun to look at the Romans – we have explored why the Romans wanted to invade Britain and how they defeated Boudica. 

We are really enjoying using Timestables Rockstars – please remember this can also be accessed at home. 

September in Year 6

We have had such a fantastic start to the school year and have settled into year 6 very quickly. We have already produced fantastic writing – we have rewritten the story of Hansel and Gretel and are currently writing a newspaper report about Goldilocks. We have been learning lots about the Ancient Greeks and have enjoyed discussing whether we think the story of the Trojan Horse is a myth, historical legend or fact. We have also done lots of other things so far including playing netball in PE, having a visit from the fire service, learning about how we see things in science and learning to play the ukulele. Please have a look at our pictures below.

September in Year 2

We have had a very busy but fun start to the year. We have created numbers using concrete resources, looked at place value of numbers and completed maths investigations. In literacy we have been pirates and experienced life at sea drinking ginger beer and eating dry crackers, we also made a sea shanty to sing a long to. In science we have been looking at habitats and hunting for bugs in our environment. Soon we are going to create our own habitat in a shoe box.
In History we have been looking at significant people in History and in particular Guy Fawkes. For PSHE we have been designing our ideal classroom and in PE we have been developing basic skills. Please have a look at the photos below of our September fun.

September in Year 3

We have had a great start to the new school year in Year 3. Everyone has settled back into school really well and are working very hard. In Maths, we have been looking at place value, recognising the value of digits and we have now started work on addition and subtraction. In Literacy, we have been writing our own version of the True Story of the 3 Little Pigs. In Science, we have been investigating magnets and looking at which materials in our classroom are magnetic. In History, we’ve been looking at the Stone Age and comparing how their lives were different to ours. The children are thoroughly enjoying swimming on Friday afternoon and they are all trying their best. Please see our pictures below.
