Today Dolphins have been competing for the title of queen or king of the Times-Tables Challenge! Who will it be?
What a lovely week, word-searching, riddle-making and careful illustrating.
The children each found a word out in the school grounds and have used this week to write a riddle or kenning for it. They have illustrated their word. They worked hard and are proud of what they have produced.
They also learnt “lost” songs and circle games and worked alongside older and younger children on different arts activities.
Hopefully, these “lost” words will stay in the children’s memories for some time.
Sharks have been enjoying completing their 12×12 grids and are improving each time they have a go. Here are some people with something to brag about!
Year 4 had a fantastic time at the Benacre estate on Wednesday. In the morning they learnt how sugar-beat is turned into Silver Spoon sugar; went hunting for invertebrates; met some birds of prey and some very cheeky and friendly hounds. In the afternoon they talked with the gamekeeper; found out how important wood is on the estate; dissected owl-pellets to find out about the prey in the area; learnt about working dogs and went on a fossil and amber hunt on the beach.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the day.
Here is the homework. Homework week 6
Last week, Sharks and Dolphins wrote proposals for where they think their clay sculptures should be installed (in the style of Field for the British Isles – Antony Gormley).
This week, they have started their installations.
I wonder what these people are thinking?
Here’s this week’s homework: Homework week 4
Thanks to East Point Academy, our clay models, based on Antony Gormley’s Field series, have been fired. This week we will begin to plan where we want to put the sculptures.
