PE: Wednesday and Friday (please come to school dressed in your PE kit on these days)

Outdoor Learning: Tuesdays

Homework: Reading, maths and spelling homework is set on the Purple Mash learning platform on a Wednesday for completion by the following Tuesday.



This term we are exploring the question, "Is everything always as it seems?" So far, we have enjoyed considering whether everything is as sinister as it seems with the monstrous, metal-munching Iron Man, in our literacy lessons, and in the way that Jesus behaves in some of the parables we are looking at as part of our Christianity topic in RE.

Outdoor Learning: We have enjoyed making dens, rope swings and Remembrace Day poppies.

Half A Man: Our whole class text for the first half of the Autumn term was Half A Man by Michael Morpurgo. We enjoyed writing Grandpa's recount of the war; creating propaganda posters; dramatising extracts from the book; considering what made Grandpa feel like half a man; and using our zones of regulation to recreate a picture from the text alongside speech, which together reflect the atmosphere in the build-up to each of Grandpa's visits. 

David Hockney: We have been studying Hockney's landscape works and have used watercolours to create our own.

Remembrance Day poppies: We used watercolours and charcoal to create abstract Remembrance Day poppy pictures.

Water lilies: In PSHE and RE we have been discussing the strength and stability of water lilies and how we can benefit from transferring these qualities into our own lives.

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin. Luke 12: 27-28.

Maths: We have been looking at different ways to partition and represent numbers, to gain a deeper and broader understanding of place value, and practising using more efficient methods of addition and subtraction.

Collective worship: We used the Parable of the Lost Sheep to discuss loss and how it makes us feel. We then created these beautiful stained glass windows to help us to remember Jesus' teachings. 

Disgusting Digestion: We can't believe that the Iron Man has been gobbling up all of the farm machinery and we were wondering how on earth he would manage to digest it, so we thought we would explore how our digestive systems work!
