Sleeping Beauty - the ugly truth

I am incredibly proud of all the children this week after their fantastic performance on Tuesday evening. They have all worked so hard to learn the lyrics and their lines and they were truly amazing!

A big thank you to all the parents who came to watch and  provided their children with excellent costumes.

Here are a few photos from the evening.....

Have a great weekend!

Hi all,

The children are really enjoying reading Iron Man! We have just started chapter 3 and are all really intrigued to see what happens next. We have all made predictions, so are waiting to see if any of them are correct.

In Science, the children have continued their work on classification keys. Each table were given 5 objects and they had to create a classification key to identify each object. The keys were then shared with another group for them to have a go at finding the answer.

In RE, we have been looking at the conversion of Saul. The children created fantastic role plays to recreate the story, and then wrote their interpretation. 

Have a great week!

We have had a great few weeks back after Easter.

In Literacy, we have been looking at poetry. The children have performed and created their own poems based around those poems we have studied. Next week, we start our fiction topic and we will be studying the book 'Iron Man'.

In Maths, we have been looking at the 11 and 12 times-tables and mental strategies for multiplication. Next week, we begin to look at Roman numerals, the children will begin to read Roman numerals to 1000 and start to recognise dates.

We have started our new geography topic on 'Our Local Area'. The children have looked at the counties in England and have plotted Harpenden on a map of the UK.

In Science, we have started our new topic on 'living things'. The children watched a clip from the Lion King and recorded all the animals they saw. They then tried to classify the animals into groups. We looked at different methods of grouping and classification keys to help the children identify different living things. We then went on to create a giant classification key to identify different members of the class. The children also played a game called 'who am I?' where they had to ask questions to the class to find out which animal they were.

Hope you all have a lovely week!
