Mrs Hawes and Mrs Lund – Year 5 and 6

Autumn 2017

Week beginning 11th September 2017

Maths – We have been revising place value and particularly enjoyed playing ‘Beat My Number’.

Grammar – In our grammar lessons, we have been thinking about what a sentence is. We worked in pairs to create a mind map and then put some of these onto our working wall.

English – In preparation for writing our own poems based on ‘The Jabberwocky’, Kingfisher Class have been creating word banks around a topic of their own choice.

PE – We have continued our OAA lessons with Mrs Everest. This week we have been working on positive teamwork interactions.

Week beginning 5th September 2017

Welcome to our first ever Kingfisher Class!

PSHE – We used Art as a way of exploring giving useful advice to each other. We then discussed how it felt to work in our comfort, challenge and panic zones.

PE – We had a go at ‘Rainforest orienteering’.

Mathematics – We explored the ‘crossing the river’ problem, with a focus on modelling the problem and recording our solutions.
