Miss Helm and Mrs Williams welcome you to our class page! The children have settled well into their new class with us and work well with the school's new routines and safety measures. Please read on to get a flavour of what we have been doing and for general information about 4/5H.
We have enjoyed a varied half term with the topic At the End of the Rainbow and taken part in many different aspects of learning and activities. These include:
Using the film Aladdin as a stimulus
Hot seating as the characters
Sculpting clay lamps
Creating and writing wishes
Using the 8 points of the compass to find treasure and using coordinates on an OS map.
Our new Deadly 60 topic is well underway and the children are enthralled by all the unusual animals, science and interesting facts that this exciting topic provides So far we have:
Watched a short documentary about a marine iguana and racer snakes and adapted it into a short story using high level and exciting vocabulary.
Written Kennings poems about the Madagascan Aye-aye using non-fiction text and facts as stimulus.
Learnt about animal classification, the 6 main animal groups and their features, in addition to creating branching databases using ICT to demonstrate this knowledge.
Created camouflage art using pastel techniques.
Enhanced our measuring skills and knowledge, using cm and mm and converting cm to m and vice versa.
Created bar charts based on African mammals and their measurements using Google sheets.
It's been great and we haven't finished yet!
A new homework task is uploaded to Seesaw every other Wednesday. This fortnight, the task is to compose a Kennings Poem based on what a good friend should be like. There's a reminder about Kennings poems and a template to add the work to. Please encourage your child to complete their homework. Take a look at Oliver's below.

We have written and role played scenes from The Golden Compass and devised our own contemporary dances based on the scene. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the faiths of Islam, Judaism and Christianity and have written the story of Joseph along with using apps and Seesaw to increase their comprehension of the story.
