Welcome to Otter Class
Autumn 2 is off to a good start. The children have enjoyed our new topic of The Romans and have enjoyed learning all about them across the curriculum.
In English we have been writing and reading different instructions. This week we have read instructions for how to make Roman flatbread. The children wrote persuasive introductions to their recipe which inspired us to make our own flatbread and practise following instructions. This was our outcomes
Roman day was such great fun! The children had the opportunity to do Roman maths, read about the Romans, observe some real Roman artefacts and have a gladiator battle. Thank you for all of the effort with their costumes!
In maths we are multiplying by 6,7 and 9 and practising different ways to show multiplication. I am really impressed with how the children have been challenging themselves. We have been really pushing ourselves to explain our reasoning and problem solve.
In Science have learnt about electricity. The children have loved identifying electrical appliances at home and creating simple circuits. You can support their learning at home by reviewing the knowledge mat with them. The knowledge mats are at the bottom of the page. We will soon be moving onto our next unit which is sound.
We have also been building our Spanish vocabulary such as greetings, colours and animals.
In PE we have started a new unit which is badminton. The children are learning how to hold the racket correctly, keep a rally going and serve correctly. Ask your child what their high score is for their rally!
In Guided Reading we are reading a book called "The Butterfly Lion" by Michael Morpugo. This is an emotional story about a lion that gets separated from his owner. We are having a lot of great discussions from this book!
In DT we will have applied our knowledge of electrical circuits to make light houses.
I look forward to the term ahead. If you need to reach me I am available at the end of the school day or by my College Town email.
