In kites this week we have been writing biographies about L.S Lowry . In maths we have been learning about line graphs, we did an experiment with a thermometer and hot water. In art we have been drawing our own Lowry based artwork. In P.E we have had a one off lesson and did gymnastics, we did different rolls like a backwards roll, forward roll and a teddy bear roll. we had another drama lesson this week with Mrs Slater and we had a lot of fun doing lots of different activities being clowns. Finally we are doing dance and we are learning more different moves for the Jive.

In Kites this week we have been very busy with our maths workshop. In the workshop our parents enjoyed seeing what we have been learning about, we even taught them some things as well! After breaktime we did an exercise called 'Wake and Shake' where everybody in the school is included in doing a dance together.
In PE we started to learn the moves for a dance called 'the Jive' some of the moves were quite tricky but we really improved as we went along.
In English we have been writing biographies.
The most fun we had this week was learning about space - we used toilet paper and fruits to make a scaled down model of our solar system.
On our first day back we had a drama lesson from a Sheldon teacher. We had fun performing one script in different ways. We are looking forward to our drama lesson next week.

What a great end to the term!
The children were brilliant in the school science fair yesterday and impressed everyone with their knowledge of metals and the periodic table. I hope you enjoyed seeing them on display in the hall.
In art we started our learning about L S Lowry and had fun listening to the song 'Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs'. We are looking forward to creating our own Lowry inspired pictures when we return after the holidays

This week in Kites we have been busy building up our science presentations for the By Brook Science Fair on the 22nd October. We really enjoyed researching facts about the periodic table and putting fun and educational facts on our boards.
In RE we have been learning about Hinduism and how Hindus show their commitment and devotion to Brahman. We had fun doing a 'Plickers' quiz.
We have really enjoyed our 7th week in Y5 and are looking forward to spending a whole year in Y5.

It has been another busy week in school. We started with a workshop from the NSPCC teaching us how to be safe and that we have to 'Speak up and stay safe'.
In RE it has been interesting to learn about other world religions and where they worship. We have focused on Hinduism and Puja - the time when Hindus worship in the home.
Our week finished with our Big Buddy Dance for the NSPCC, reminding us of the important message. Our box is in the classroom ready for the sponsorship forms.
Our thankfulness box in class is now getting full, the children have been impressive, thinking of all the people they are thankful for.
Friday 4th October
Last Friday we had a very interesting visit to the REME museum in Lyneham. There were lots of opportunities to handle artefacts form WW2 and this really helped to enhance our learning.
This week we have spent valuable time in the Compassion Bus, thinking about how we can help other less fortunate than us. Our Compassion poems showed how reflective we had been.
We have then spent time thinking about ourselves and how to keep ourselves safe. We had an Anti Bullying
Assembly and a visit form the NSPCC. On Monday next week we will continue this with an NSPCC workshop and on Friday we will do our Buddy Sponsorship dance session.
Friday 20 September
We have had a lovely week all finished off with baking and eating cake. The recipe is attached at the bottom.
In PSHE we have been thinking about making judgements and judging others based on their clothes and what they look like. This has led to some very interesting conversations. It would be good if these were continued at home.
Friday 13 September
We have had a very busy first two weeks in Kites class - getting used to all the new routines and organising our classroom.
We have begun our new learning and are enjoying finding out about WW2 by using our class text Letters from the Lighthouse.
In two weeks we are going on our class trip to the REME Museum in Lyneham. You should have received a letter about this. if not please ask in the office or let me know and I will ensure you get one.
