We started our new maths topic, shape, this week. We have been learning about regular and irregular polygons and how to identify and classify 3D shapes. Please ask us to tell you what shape different objects are!
Last Thursday afternoon Dosbarth Tryfan attended a first aid training workshop. They practiced putting casualties in the recovery position, giving chest compressions on a mannequin and putting bandages on fake wounds. They thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.
Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 4/5)
Happy New Year!
We are continuing with the theme 'Tudor travels' for this half term as there is still lots more we would like to learn about.
We have decided to particularly focus on the areas- who are the Tudors? Tudor travels and a day in the life of a Tudor.
There already seems to be particular interest in King Henry VIII.
If any parents/ grandparents/ carers have any resources that they think will be of use to out topic please let us know!
Our class book is going to be 'Bill's new frock,' the pupils are very much looking forward to it and are quite intrigued by the title. before we begin the book, we are spending a few weeks on 'Mr William Shakespeare's plays' as this ties in nicely with our topic on Tudors and script writing as part of our Lead Creative schools project.
Homework has slightly changed and is taking the format of small projects over three weekly periods. the first one is linked to our Religious education topic this half term- Islam. Please read the information on the top of the sheet which has been sent home today (10/01/17) for more information.
Home reading book are changed on a Friday, so it's important your child's book bag is in school on this day. When you listen to your child read, please record in their yellow reading diary.
Spelling lists are sent home on Friday, to be learnt ready for the test on Tuesday.
PE kits need to be in school daily.
