We are Sycamore Class (lower Key Stage 2), Years 3 and 4. We are excited learners and very busy in our Class with Mrs Peall, Miss Bottle and Mrs Deacon.
We are aiming to be independent learners and know we have to try our very best in all we do. We know we need to take more responsibility for organising our belongings and completing tasks but the adults in our lives will support us with this.
Things to remember:
Home learning is given out on a Monday and returned for a Friday.
Our P.E. takes place every Tuesday afternoon.
We should aim to read every night and this can be either a book from home or a school book.
Weekly round up!
This week we have continued with our mystery text and focused on synonyms and antonyms to respond to the situation of the old man. Today we revised questions and question marks and pretended to interview the old man. This provoked thoughtful comments about landfill and when did rubbish begin to clutter our land. Year 3 thought back to their work on the stone age to help them solve this dilemma!
In Maths we have continued to examine place value and patterns in numbers- we have generated 'Always, Sometimes and Never' statements. Y4 have counted and solved problems in 25's and Y3 have counted in 100's and 50's.
We have prepared for our assembly (next Wednesday in the church) thinking about 'Respect' and what this means.
In Science we have classified animals and begun to think about classification keys to help sort living things.
We have shared the story of 'The magic Finger' today and completed activities linked to it. We began by talking about the phrase 'seeing red' and what this means. We thought about times this has happened to us, and then the consequences of this behaviour. We then tried out a couple of 'defusing' activities to reduce anger.
We had fun making a flick book to animate changes and we also viewed the world from a bird's point of view and wrote words and phrases to describe the feeling an experience- there were some incredible ideas which we hope to compose a class poem with next week.
We've also been busy this week finding more out about our local area of Pluckley and comparing maps of the area .
