The children have enjoyed listening to traditional Greek music in the afternoons whist creating some amazing Greek masterpieces! They have been learning about Greek pottery and how each design tells a story of every day life of war and heroes! The children focused on geometric designs to make their vases pleasing to the eye. Their inspiration came from the stories including Medusa, Apollo and the Chimera.
In our ICT lesson children have been learning how to keep safe when using the internet. We discussed the importance of keeping personal information private and the dangers of speaking to strangers online. We talked about what was acceptable and unacceptable with a focus on cyberbullying. The children discussed the best actions to take if they were upset by anything online.
Here are some useful links for parents to support e-safety at home. Please help us to keep our children safe online.
The children have been settling in well to class 3 this week. They have been learning more about expectations in learning and behaviour.
In Literacy they have been very busy! At the beginning of the week they wrote poems with our visitor Paul Cookson and performed our class poem Supersonic Ears to the school. They have been enjoying listening to a selection of Greek Myths. They had fun learning about Medusa and how her hair turned to snakes because of her vanity. They learnt how Apollo battled the Chimera, the monster with the head of a lion, body of a goat, tail of a serpent and breath of a dragon to rescue his beloved Athena.
The children then worked together to identify the different features of a myth in order to write there own.
In Maths the children were learning how to write numbers up to a thousand in numbers and words and has started to partition three and four digit numbers. Later in the week the children had fun with the Year 6 children learning how to access Times Tables Rock Stars on the Ipads.
Class 3 have started recorder lessons this week which they thoroughly enjoyed! They were fabulous at reading the notes and clapping the rhythms.
The children have been working hard this week on our new 'Democracy' topic thinking about how we can represent others. We had discussions about our Queen, Parliament, the Government and MPs! The children found out who our local MP is for our area and wrote questions to find out more about his job role. We have wrote him a letter in the hope that he may come and visit us!
