Cheetahs

Welcome to Cheetahs

Year 4 & 5

TERM 2

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.

We wrote some descriptive pieces about being caught out at sea in a storm. These two children worked incredibly hard and challenged themselves to use some new and exciting vocabulary. Well done!

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!

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!

Week 4: This week we have welcomed Miss Davies into our class. She is from Bath Spa University and this afternoon she worked with groups of children on a science investigation. This term our Science topic is ' Properties of Materials' and the children were looking at various substances and coming to conclusions about whether or not they would dissolve in water.

This week the children have been writing diary entries as if they were Jim from our class text Street Child. They clearly found it helpful to have the opportunity to read what they had written to a learning partner. The process enabled the children to then carefully edit their work.
