TIME TO VISIT OUR NEW CLASSES THIS WEEK!
This is a very important and exciting week because we are going to visit our new classes on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
In our Learning Adventure, we will be making picarones, Peruvian doughnuts. They are made from sweet potatoes and squash, but are dipped into a sweet sauce. We hope that they are going to taste delicious!
Last week, we had a lovely rugby skills lesson: we worked in teams to create our own games.
We also carried out another of our very informative PSHE lessons on "Changing Me." The children have been brilliant, really grown up and very respectful.
In French, we learned the names of some of the European countries in the Euro Football Tournament, as well as the months of the year. The children have learned a lot of vocabulary this year and they are very enthusiastic in these lessons.
In maths lessons, we will be working on "Time" this week and in English, we are writing "Stories with Dilemmas." What dilemmas could occur if an animal followed you home?!
Have a lovely week.

DRAGON CONSERVATION! 

This week`s blog has been written by Em, Maisy and Elodie.

It’s here: the time of the week everybody loves - FRIDAY!

This week in maths, we have been learning how to write, read and understand statistics especially line graphs. This is called “interpreting.” We also  practised drawing graphs!
In English we have been busy with testing our imagination by thinking of ideas for Dragon diaries. We went on an expedition in the forest garden, finding clues like dragon tears and we even found some dragon eggs hidden in a tree!
In guided reading, we have been working on some short comprehensions including “THE WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE” which we think some parents may have read when they were children.
And in Games lessons this week, we learnt how to hold and pass a rugby ball… in the BOILING HOT HEAT!

PUPILS OF THE WEEK THIS WEEK: Jack, Lottie, Alex and Xavier.

Have a lovely weekend!
From the 4/5P Team.

 


AN ACTION-PACKED WEEK! 

THIS WEEK`S BLOG HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY THREE MEMBERS OF THE CLASS: Emma, Maisy and Jess. Well done!
Yet again we have come to the end of the week (FRIDAY!) and have started a new topic in maths: Graphs and Statistics. As this is a new topic we have been slowly settling in as we haven’t done this in a while (because of Covid).
We have continued working on our bronze, silver or gold sheets.
In English this week, we have started and come to an end of writing our information texts on Peru. Next week we will be checking through and completing the second draft.
In science, we learnt about the different types of teeth (incisors, canines premolars, molars and of course the wisdom teeth).
In R.E we learnt about special Jewish festivals! We drew a Seder plate.
And lastly, for our lessons in P.E, we enjoyed playing lots of relays and passing on batons.
Stars of the week are: Mark, Joshua and Harry A
REMINDERS .

PUPILS` REFLECTIONS ON LAST WEEK 

This week`s blog has been written by EG and MK from Class 4/5P.
WELL DONE GIRLS.

FINALLY, THE END OF THE WEEK IS HERE!
In maths we have been focusing on ending our topic on money and have been independent on knowing where our work level should be. (E.G bronze, silver or gold.)
In English we have enjoyed planning information texts on the topic “Peru” and have learnt lots of facts and interesting information on the country. We will finally be writing our texts next week.
On Thursday, we enjoyed completing an interesting (and slightly gross) science experiment all to do with the digestive system. We learned a lot by doing this because it was very similar to how are body digests food and nutrients.
It was VERY life like! We really enjoyed the lesson.
We have a new, fun entry for our Blog. In our P.E. lesson this week, we ran lots of relays and played an exciting game called dustbin rounders! Dustbin rounders was great and Mrs H was brilliant (GO MRS H!)
And last, but not least, it was “wear yellow day” on Friday. All the students wore yellow to support the Cystic Fibrosis charity and to support one of our fellow pupils who has this condition. Westcountry TV were in school and we were all on the TV in the evening!
STARS OF THE WEEK were Em, Elodie and Harry!
Reminders:
* P.E lesson on Wednesday and Fit Friday.
* Make sure you have suitable outdoor shoes on Tuesdays in case we do Forest School or walk down to the building site.
* Please bring Reading Records to school each day.
* Remember drink bottles, especially on hot days.

This week, we will be beginning our PSHE/SRE lessons on puberty, changes, having babies.
In Maths lessons, we continue to work on "Money" and in English, we are doing well with our Information texts. We are building up our geographical knowledge of Peru.

In R.E. lessons, we continue to learn about Judaism.

WEEK BEGINNING 7TH JUNE 2021 

WELCOME BACK AFTER THE HALF TERM !
What amazing weather we had over the holiday. We hope you had chance to get out and about and have a change of scene.
This is our last half term in 4/5P and we have a lot of exciting work ahead of us.
In Science, we will be studying "Animals including Humans" where we will be learning about the human digestive system. 
Next week, we will be starting our important SRE lessons on puberty and changes.
In Maths lessons, we are currently working on "Money" and we will then be looking at data and graphs.
Our English lessons are supporting our Learning Adventure based on South American countries (4/5P are learning about Peru) and we will be producing an Information Text after carrying out research. We will also be doing some cooking: the children have been finding out what the popular dishes of Peru are. It will probably include potatoes as these are a staple food of the country.
In our games lessons, we will be carrying out athletics and rounders.
We hope to make the most of the sunny weather to enjoy our school gardens and to nurture the seeds, flowers and vegetables we are growing.
Our Games lessons will continue to be on a Wednesday afternoon and we will have Fit Friday each week, too.

Please keep reading at home and keep learning times tables.

WEEK BEGINNING 24TH MAY 2021 

Welcome to a new week: we hope you had a good weekend.
This week, in our PSCHE lessons, we will be thinking about the value DETERMINATION and in particular, at the life of Martin Luther King.
With a lot of hard work and determination, 4/5P have earned their Reward Morning, so we hope that we will be able to do this on Thursday - we will send a note home to confirm.
In Maths lessons, we will be continuing to work on Decimals and in English, we will be perfecting and writing up our playscripts.
In Science, we have been looking at classification, animal grouping and the seven life processes. The children have built up a good knowledge and understanding in these areas.
We continue to work on improving the school garden and the area outside our classroom, albeit slowly.
In French lessons, we have been learning the names of fruits, as well as revising our knowledge of days of the week, colours and numbers.
This week, we are excited as we welcome a new Year 5 boy into the class.
I think that we are all ready for a break and let`s hope that when we return after the half term, we will be getting the sort of weather we expect for the "Summer Term."
Please keep reading at home, learning times tables, working on telling the time and learning your spellings.
4/5P Team.

 


WEEK BEGINNING 17TH MAY 2021 

We had another very busy week last week: the children have been working really hard - as usual.
We started looking at playscripts in English and we acted out a couple  and identified the features.
On Tuesday, we were caught in a huge downpour of rain as we searched for minibeasts in the Forest Garden. Our vegetables are doing well and the pots outside our room are coming together - thanks to "Gardening Club."
In Maths, we continue our work on Decimals, where good progress is being made. We have focused on using Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract methods to support our lessons. Use of manipulatives have really helped develop our understanding in this unit. We are also battling away at times tables and we are getting there.
Our music lessons with Mr Warwick have finished now, but we will continue to do singing and we will be following a brand new music scheme. This looks very good.
Mrs H has been teaching the children the names of different fruits in French lessons and we have been working on surveys in our Geography lessons.
We started doing tennis in our Games lessons.
All in all, a very busy and rewarding week!
REMINDERS:
* Please bring a change of shoes or welly boots on Tuesdays. This is the day that we aim to be out and about.
* Please wear PE kit on Wednesdays and Fridays. We try to do Games on a Wednesday, but will defer to Friday if the weather is not good. It is Fit Friday anyway.
Thank you for your support.
4/5P Team.

 


Week Beginning 10th May 2021 

We had a busy week last week even though we were only in school for 4 days.
We planted our vegetables in the top garden and we are now hoping that we get no more frosts. They look really good.
Next week, we are hoping to visit the Building Site again and see what is happening. Now that the houses are being built, there seems to be very quick progress.
In Maths, we continue to work on decimals and in English, we will be sharing our newspaper reports and be moving on to playscripts (which will be a lot of fun).
Our Learning Adventure work is focusing on St Cleer as a settlement and we have been thinking about the physical landscape of this area. The children have bought lots of information and ideas to the lessons and we have had some really good discussions.
Thank you to Parents and Carers for catching up with us at Parent Consultations and for all your support.

 


Week beginning 4th May 2021 

Welcome back after a very short break!
We hope you were able to make the most of the sunny days. Let`s hope that the weather warms up so that we can plant out our vegetables in the top garden. They have been well looked after each day and are looking strong and healthy.
Thank you to all of you who have brought in pots, seeds, plants and compost to share. We really appreciate it.
We want to work on the area outside our classroom and make a grand display of all our plant pots.
In English this week, we continue to work on newspaper reports and the children will be innovating a given report on super heroes in order to confidently write their own report.
In Maths lessons, we will be in our second week on a unit about decimals. The children are doing well in this unit so far.
Science: Living Things and their Habitats combines well with our work on plants.
Our Learning Adventure: "Near and Far: What does our World Teach us?" is well underway, with a strong emphasis on Geography. We have been walking in the village and looking at local amenities, as well as drawing maps and learning about OS symbols.
