Welcome to Muntjac Class!
We had Berkshire Music Maestros in this week for the children to have a go at some samba.
This half term we are learning about Plants in Science. We have done some experiments to see how the roots absorb water using food colouring.
Our current topic is 'Ancient Egypt'. The children are writing an Egyptian story based in the pyramids. They are learning about the Pharaohs, hieroglyphics and what life was like in Ancient Egypt. It has been so interesting to see the artefacts and books children have been bringing in on the topic.
One unlucky member of Muntjac even got turned into a mummy for the lesson!
Here is some silhouette art we created:
We also made some Egyptian head pieces, just like the Pharaoh's wore!
We also used clay to make some Egyptian inspired art pieces.
In Maths, our current unit is on shape. We are looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will be learning about regular, irregular shapes, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Our focus in KIRFs are facts linked with the 8 times tables, so please continue to practise this at home to develop this skill.
On Friday's we are sharing books with Reception children. It has been absolutely lovely seeing how engaged the children are with each other!
In Guided Reading we have finished the 'You are Awesome' book. It was a brilliant and inspiring book about developing a positive mindset! The children gave some fantastic reviews at the end and many of them said how they were going to aim to have a growth mindset. We have now started a book called 'Fortunately The Milk'. A funny story about a dad who goes out to get milk and meets some funny characters along the way!
I have also seen some fantastic examples of reading records where children are increasingly reading aloud at home! Keep this up!
What a lovely day World Book Day was! It was brilliant to see the children so excited about books and sharing stories with children across the school. Please have a look at the pictures below.
