Autumn 1, Week 6

It was so lovely to see so many of you at open session last Monday. I hope you enjoyed looking at your child’s work and classroom environment. 

We are still studying 'Eye of the Wolf' in English - a book about a wolf who has been captured from Alaska and placed in a zoo in Paris. It is here he strikes up a friendship with a young boy who sympathises with him. We have been revising descriptive techniques such as similes, metaphors and personification and the children used these in a descriptive paragraph about the wolf's eye. 

We are currently on Stop 4 on our USA road trip where we will be visiting Alaska and writing a non-chronological report. The children used the iPads yesterday to research Alaska and collect fun facts that they wanted to include. They couldn’t believe that a 13-year-old boy designed the Alaskan flag or that Alaska is biggest yet most sparsely populated State in America.

In Maths, we have been looking at multiples, factors and Prime numbers. The children used the ‘Sieve of Eratosthenes’ which is an ancient algorithm for finding all prime numbers to any given limit. 

On Thursday, to mark World Mental Health Day, the children took part in a special  BBC live lesson. This included various activities and a group session of meditation using a hand breathing exercise. We later reflected on what we had learnt and recorded our reflections in the class PSHE Journal. 

I hope you all have a lovely week!
