Term 5

Continuing to improve our team skills with a game of catch the flag (or in our case - beanbag).

Taking an opportunity to plan and improve a previous piece of writing..

Lots happening this week including:

 

A sports tournament of Kho Kho and Kabaddi taking place at Holbeach, we wish all of those participating all the best. Try your hardest and do WHS proud. Taking part and working together at a united team is the most important thing you can do, if you win some, then that would be amazing, but most of all, have fun!! 

 

Our annual Year 6 outing to Lincoln Cathedral for the Church School festival we will also be joined by the Year 6 Children from Tydd St Mary. The children will get to explore the Cathedral and take part in various activities. Hopefully they will all have a great time.

 

Unfortunately, as we are going to Lincoln we will be missing the FOWH family fun day, however, we hope everyone joining in the fun will have a great time. Fingers crossed for good weather.

 

Lastly, we hope you all have a fantastic half term and we look forward to seeing you back for our final term.

 

Happy Holidays. wink

Art - Continued to explore contrast to add depth to our art pieces.

Science  - We continued investigating light. What happens to shadows when a light source goes nearer to the object and further away.

P.E - We enjoyed playing a game of kabaddi, learning to use better strategies to in order to win the game.

British Declaration Of War - 3 September, 1939 - COMPLETE Broadcast

This is the FULL announcement of Declaration Of War made by Neville Chamberlain on 3 September 1939. It was broadcast on BBC Radio at 11:15am, 15 minutes after the British deadline for Germany to withdraw from Poland had passed. After Chamberlain speaks, church bells ring for a short time and then Government public service messages are broadcast.

Reading - We have continued reading Goodnight Mister Tom and listened to the news announcement declaring the beginning of the War with Germany in 1993. We looed at photographs of Anderson shelters that everyone had to put in their gardens.

Pronouns for Kids

In this pronouns video for kids, you will learn what pronouns are, what they do and why they are so much fun to use! In fact, we use them all the time! Move over, Schoolhouse Rock, this is a new generation of learning videos that take a very different, more interactive approach to taking English grammar and other subjects.

English - We have reminded ourselves of all the different kind of pronouns there are and practice putting them into sentences.

 

Maths - We have been using co-ordinates to plot corners of shapes, to reflect, rotate and translate. This was quite tricky for some and it took a great deal of perseverance.  

Thank-you Evelyn, you did a great job weeding and sorting out our planters.

Week Commencing 6/5/24

I-Sing Pop

Main rules of kho kho

In this video you will understand how to play kho kho You can also visit this channel and do subscribe it @Aaohaskejao https://youtube.com/@Aaohaskejao?si=DdP6vtNXjfjcV7Gc

P.E - Mr P from Inspire+ came in to teach us a new sport called Kho Kho which originates from India. It is a fast paced team game. Once we worked out the strategies to win, we enjoyed playing the game alongside developing our running skills and co-operative team skills.

History - We looked at many items which were around during 1939 and compared them with things we have today, to see how life was different. Then we looked at what the children might have packed in their suitcases when they were evacuated.  

Philosophers Cafe in RE

Maths - We have been reminding ourselves of all the names of polygons and working out the size of angles in regular shapes. We also tried to draw some accurately, which was not as easy as it sounds.

Possessives Song, Possessive Nouns, Apostrophe Usage by Melissa | Award Winning Educational Song

I wrote this song about possessives as a memorable tool to help my students learn and understand possessives for life. This song explains using apostrophes to show possession in a very simplified way. The song provides examples of regular single and plural nouns that follow the general rule.

English - We have revised the use of apostrophes for possession, and the different types of clauses there are. We are also working on planning, drafting and writing a report for our topic work.

Another team building exercise with some brilliant OAA games. Outdoor Adventurous Activities.

SATs revision is still talking over our lives but we are nearly done. devil

Week commencing 29/4/24

Reversible and irreversible changes

This video explains that some changes that are made to matter by heating it can be reversed and others cannot. It is part of a wider lesson plan on reversible and irreversible changes that are caused by heating and cooling, which is aligned with Next Generation Science Standard 2-PS1-4: "Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot."

Science - We used our scientific skills to interpret results of a scientific test. Reversible and irreversible changes were explored using a candle. The children saw that as the candle burned and the longer it burned the flame gradually became brighter.

P.E - We further developed our team work skills with the support from inspire+. Later in the week we developed our starting techniques when sprinting and passing the relay baton with precision.

Maths - We studied different types of angles and how we can calculate the missing angles on a straight line, inside triangles and even vertically opposite angles.

Music - continued learning toot toots.

Formal vs Informal writing

This is a video animation explaining the differences between formal and informal language and an explanation of when you would want to use one or the other. The video also looks at some of the characteristics of the two types of language to help you better write letters adopting a formal style.

English - We have continued comparing different registers of language from formal/informal to standard English/very formal and even technical. We then focused on direct speech and making sure it was correctly punctuated.

Another great week fall of revision as we approach the looming SAT's  in Mid - May. 

 

Week commencing 22/4/24

 

 

PE - We started the lesson discussing the various athletic sporting activities that make up both the Olympics and Para-Olympics, we found out that these events are on both track and field and simultaneously take place. 

Interestingly, the programme of the 2024 Summer Olympics will feature a staggering 329 events in 32 sports. This years Olympic Games are being held in Paris.

 

Mrs Edwards then took us outside and practiced different ways to walk, run, jog and jump.

Science - We have started our study on light; recognising light sources and realising that we only see light because light is bouncing off objects and entering our eyes.

Maths - We have been reminding ourselves to use formal methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide. 

Topic for this term is World War II and the Waring World

 

We have found out why World War II began and which countries were involved, and who the leader of each country was. We looked at a picture from WWII which shows the remains after a bomb hit the city. It was interesting how we inferred what might have happened. We discussed how how the children in the picture may be feeling, What are their thoughts? Where might their family be? What will happen to them?  Can we relate to how they may be feeling?  This gave us a great deal to think about.

 

 

Art - Linking to our Topic we are looking at War Artists: Paul Nash & Michael Alford and War photographer: Roger Fenton.

Miss Parker discussed the importance of understanding technical language and there meanings ie: background; foreground; middle ground; hashing etc... 

English - We have been looking at different registers of the English language. We have discovered that it ranges from very informal and standard English to very formal to technical.

We found that standard English was very useful when writing letters of complaint. We used a thesaurus to find synonyms for frequently used words. We know that our knowledge of synonyms is extremely important, as we can use alternative words as opposed to continually repeating ourselves, this makes for more interesting and powerful reading.

Great start back to school and getting ready for our SATs in May, so lots of revision going on.

Our PE days have remained the same and all children should come to school in their PE kit on Mondays and Wednesdays.

 

Can we please also remind you that  all earrings should be removed on the days we have PE. If they are not removed the children will be asked to remove them before they are able to participate in PE.

Welcome back to term 5.

 

We hope you had a fantastic Easter and indulged in lots of yummy treats over the break. 

Lots of things are happening this term.

Our SATs will be taking place in May. All of our children have been working really hard to enrich their skills to support with these tests, so we wish them all good luck.

Our topic this term is World War II. We will be linking lots of our curriculum lessons to this subject. If you have any artefacts from this era or have any information to support this topic, please feel free to bring it in or share it with us.
