Learning and Achieving Together


Team Turquoise 2023/24.

 Your class teachers are Mrs Vipond and Mrs Short. 

Your teaching assistants are Mrs Buck and Mrs Botha.


This week in Maths, we have been investigating negative numbers and finding out how to calculate with them. We have also been securing methods for rounding whole and decimal numbers. In English, we have written a diary recount about losing and finding a beloved pet. 


In Science, we Investigated light  and found out that opaque objects make the best shadows because they block light. We went on to make shadow puppets and created stories with them. In RE, we learnt about the Eight Fold Path and in PSHE, we debated about whether children's rights around the world are being met. In History, we found out about the key events in World War 2 and in Art, we used different materials to extend a picture of London. In Computing, we created our own games based on 'Splatty Bug' and in French we continued to enhance our spoken and written language with  focus on naming parts of the body.


Next week is PGL week for some but we will also be having lots of fun in school. We will be completing an Art project with Mrs Vipond and a board game with Mrs Boulder.
