So here we are, the last week of term! What better way to finish off by going on a trip to London! In the morning, we had a tour around the Houses of Parliament. After Lunch, we went on the London Eye - the views were absolutely stunning. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day.
It's been a very busy week to say the least in Elm Class this week!
In Topic, over the last few weeks the children have been creating their very own Tudor Globe Theatres. We are extremely proud of their hard work and perseverance with their project. Here are some of their fantastic results...
A fun day at PGL where the children (and staff) took part in two activities at the centre, including the giant swing (it was very, very, very high!) and an obstacle course. During the obstacle course, they were only allowed to step within the hoops, working as a team - if they stepped into "lava", they had to do a forfeit. The children enjoyed the day very much and also got very muddy.
To start our week off, we had a special visit from Jonathan Broom-Edwards, Para Olympian and Ambassador for Inspire+, delivering a great inspirational talk in our Collective Worship. Elm Class had the opportunity to ask questions about his experiences, training and achievements together with some of the most fantastic places he has been to during his career so far.
In Literacy this week we have been looking at The Listeners poem. The children have been concentrating on creating their own poems based on The Listeners.
For Science, we have been investigating the different volts and making predictions on light and looked at how volts make a circuit. The cells had different volts dependent on how much light was produced. In conclusion, the children found out that you could see that the light got stronger when more volts were used.
In Topic and D.T, the children have started to make their own tudor theatres from their net plans. Patience and precise measuring will be the skills required to create their master-pieces!
This week we had a special visit from Mr Kilby who teaches Science at Spalding Grammar School. Mr Kilby delivered both practical and theory lessons on the relationship between mass and distance for balancing forces. The children really enjoyed the activities and investigations. They even wore lab technician coats to look the part!
World Book Day!
Our whole school took part in World Book Day. Elm Class all looked fantastic in their Heroes and Villains themed costumes and were taught all day by Batman! Yes Batman!
For Literacy, the children all wrote short stories based on their own Hero and Villain characters and were able to read them out to the class.
In Numeracy this week the children started to work on ratio and proportion using smarties! What a tease but what a fabulous way to learn all about how ratio and proportion works. The children had fun and did enjoy eating the smarties at the end of lesson.
For Literacy, Mrs Ellis was on the hot seat and the children were able to ask questions in order to gain useful information to form indirect and direct speech.
In PE - the children explored shapes and movements using their bodies.
Welcome back! In Numeracy this week, we have been looking at equivalent fractions and decimals, multiplying and dividing by 10,100, and 1000, together with negative numbers. For Literacy, we have been concentrating on writing a Biography about Henry VIII and in Science, the children learned the importance of the major discoveries in electricity. In Art & DT, the children have started to create their own model versions of The Globe Theatre - patience is the key to this task!
In PE with Miss Wantling, the children have had some fun learning some Tudor Dancing, which nicely ties in with our topic this term on Tudors. We had a lovely visit from Sophie Allen this week. She spent some time in each class delivering workshops on Well Being and Ways to Keep Active.
