Welcome to Cheetahs
Year 4 & 5
Week 1-It was lovely to see all the Cheetahs again after the mid- term holiday. I hope you all had a lovely break. Thank you for coming to the Parents' Evenings. I am delighted with the progress being made by the children and with the conscientious attitude that they demonstrate. It makes a huge difference when parents are involved with the work we do in school and I very much enjoyed chatting with you all last week.
This term we have a new topic which is SURVIVAL! We will be looking at Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo and some other wonderful texts which focus on coping in the wild!
I am hoping to arrange a Forest School day which will enable us to find out about creating shelters and building fires!
This week we braved the elements and went to the playing fields to learn hockey skills.
With Mrs Ibison, the children looked at a famous painting which is actually a woodblock print called The Wave. It appears on the front cover of Kensuke's Kingdom.
The children created their own versions and this one is particularly impressive!
Welcome to the web page for Cheetahs Class.

Week 2: Cheetahs Class have settled into an excellent routine and have been working hard. Well done!
Friday afternoons provide the children with an opportunity to choose activities which relate to topics we are covering in class.
On offer today:
Making bookmarks with names written in hieroglyphics.
Constructing a pyramid from a net.
Ancient Egyptian research using books on loan from the library service.
Creating scenes from the story of Cinderella in the style of the illustrator Arthur Rackham.
Week 3: On Friday afternoon of Week 3 we once again had an afternoon of varied activities relating to our class topics.
Some children chose to create and decorate a sarcophagus and others annotated a map of Egypt. The other two activities related to our class text-Street Child. Some children chose to act out a scene from the book following a script and others created a story board with their own ideas about what might happen next.
One child pursued his love of maths and completed some arithmetic challenges!
