We have enjoyed PE and RE this week

In PE this term we are learning about Athletics. After warming up we practised running for speed and sprint starts. We ran for short bursts, then gave each other feedback about how we could improve. Maximus told Szymon, "Using your arms harder will make you faster."

We learned about symbolism in Christianity in our RE lesson this week. As part of our work we were asked to design our own symbol which could represent Christianity and the beliefs within this. This was Joshua's idea: 

This was Julia's suggestion:

 

 

 

Terms 5 and 6 - Inventors and explorers

We are very excited about next term, we'll be learning about exciting explorers, like our own local Matthew Flinders who went exploring in Australia 200 years ago. This will link with our Geography topic of rivers and human settlements - we will need to practise our compass and map skills too! Journeys and travelling will be a focus in English and Guided Reading. In maths we will continue our learning about fractions then move on to measurement, perimeter and area.

Please please please encourage your child to read over the Easter holidays! Ask them to read to you, you might read to them, ask them questions about the book they're reading, encourage them to ask you for help if they find vocabulary they don't understand. Reading is at the heart of all our learning at school so it is vital your child develops the habit of reading, at least a little, every day.

To encourage this we have a challenge at the moment for the children to have their photograph taken while reading in the strangest way they can - read in odd places or in peculiar positions, with pets or siblings. Help your child to have a go at this and bring us the photos after the holiday to be displayed in our reading area, or put them on Twitter and link it to GreatOaksFederation.

Try online reading games to engage your child's interest:

Websites such as The Book People have suggested reading lists for all ages of children so if you would like ideas for which books to offer your child, why not try here? They always have offers and their prices are low!

 

What a WOW day!

We had a Tudor WOW day on Friday, and what a fun day it was! Many of us dressed up as poor and rich Tudors and spent the day (including break times) in role. First we had a maths challenge - to create a banquet for 6 rich Tudors, working out what we could afford to buy while keeping to a budget. Then we did the same for poor people, choosing suitable foods - the cheap and nasty options from the menu! - with a drastically reduced budget.

We learned lots of new facts about Tudor lifestyles and presented the information to each other.

We were very keen on going in the stocks, which we are sure was not the way people in the Tudor period felt about it!

In the afternoon we were very excited to dissect poo! The challenge was to become archaeologists, dissect the poo and determine which era it was from - Roman, Viking or Tudor, based on what was found within. 

The Stump visit

We went to the beautiful and impressive Stump on Monday. The guides kindly told us all about the stained glass windows, we explored the building while on a treasure hunt and sang songs from the Tudor era while Mr Ford played the organ, a replica of a real Tudor instrument. This developed our learning in both RE, understanding how people worshipped and learned from the bible in the past, and our Tudor topic. As the building itself predates the Tudors, we could see evidence of changes over time, identifying features from before and after this era.
