Just wanted to share these photos of Onyx Class discussing the nature of different rock formations using starburst! Can your child tell you what a sedimentary rock is? What about metamorphic? igneous? We had great fun!
A warm welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. It was lovely to contact parents through zoom before we broke up and I hope that families feel well informed and up to date about their child's progress. We are very proud of the progress children have made in our Phase in such a short amount of time. Onwards and upwards!
We also finished the half-term with a lovely cross country run. The sun shone. The faces smiled... I hope the photos say it all. A huge well done to all those who took part and congratulations to our winners.
Welcome to the Years 3 and 4 Blog! We have enjoyed some lovely weather in our first 2 weeks back at school so have tried as much as possible to engage in outdoor learning. As you know we have been studying volcanos. Attached are some photos of our sizzling starter. The idea, was to create an eruption. Did we create effusive or explosive eruptions? Ask your child! We certainly laughed alot.
We also enjoyed making the layers of the earth using plasticine. Ask your child whether they can name the 4 layers in order. Can they tell you anything about the layers of the earth? Some photos attached.
Lastly, we enjoyed a beautiful walk to Gobions. We collected some examples of natural beauty and later took to drawing them. These will be published in the next edition of the blog.
We have certainly enjoyed the first 2 weeks, teaching and getting to know your children. We hope they have to. We would like to congratulate the children on their first long piece of writing, which was an explanation on how earthquakes happen. They all worked hard.
Next week we are starting a new Literacy genre for horror/spooky settings. If you would like to share any descriptions or ideas on how one might describe a haunted setting (castle/graveyard) then please do.
