Week 2

This week in English, we have retold the story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe whilst catching a ball. The ball is thrown to one person and then that person tells a small part of the story and then they pass the ball on. We also wrote a diary entry as Lucy on the day she found her way into Narnia through the wardrobe.

In PE we have been practising Yoga, working on our balance and concentration. We have tried the cat pose, the tree pose and snake breathing.

We have continued our study of mountains this week by using atlases and identifying the different types of maps – political, which show all the countries and relief which show all the physical features of a country, its rivers and mountains. We have been investigating the continent of Africa.

In Music we have been practising African drumming. You use different parts of your hand to make different sounds. The heel of your hand in the centre of the drum makes a deep booming sound, and if you tap with your fingertips it makes a higher sound. We have also started learning about 12 bar blues.

We have continued to learn about 5 digit numbers. We have been rounding them to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 and we have been ordering them using inequalities symbols. Most of us feel confident about it. J

In Games we have been learning skipping Rugby to train for the Tag Rugby Tournament.

Congratulations to Sophie Phillips and Oliver Kershaw who are our School Parliament representatives and Ellis Talbot who is our Eco representative.
