We had a brilliant time at the Air Tattoo this morning. Here are some photos of the various things we got up to.
Last week we used our LEGO towers and bodies to investigate how shadows are made and how they move. We learnt about transparent, translucent and opaque materials and we know that shadows are created when light is blocked by an opaque material.
When the light source is high the shadow will be short and when the light source is lower then the shadow will be taller.
This week we’ve been busy practising our times tables for our last multiplication awards in Cherry Class. In English we’ve been learning a persuasive advert using Talk 4 Writing and today we finished our text maps which have been Seesawed home.
In P.E. we’ve practised our running technique and passing the baton in the relay in preparation for sports day next week. Tomorrow we’ll be learning how to throw the Vortex and will practise the standing jump.
We have continued with our art work based on the theme of courage and have produced some brilliant pieces of art with paint, chalk, pencils and some decoupage. Each of us have now contributed something to our banner and we can’t wait to see the finished product. Thank you to all the parents who have helped with this. Here are some photos of our amazing work and remember that school meeting begins at 2:30pm where each group will be performing a dance related to our value.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs Johanson told us about a special delivery we had while we were at LEGOland. An extremely kind parent from another class has delivered an astounding 18 boxes of LEGO cards and after some discussion, we decided that we would sort them and organise a whole school LEGO card swap before the end of term. Stayed tuned for more details and we would be grateful for any parents who are willing to come and help us sort the cards.
Yesterday we started Art Week and this year we are doing things differently. The whole school has been split into six classes and will spend each morning together working on a value that makes Woodborough special. Mrs Johanson’s group are spending the week looking at ‘Courage’.
We started the morning by learning about the meaning of courage and then we completed/designed our own mindfulness colouring sheet.
Some of us went in pairs to do some work on our banner with Mrs Gorvin and Mrs Tilbury and each of us will have the opportunity to add something to this over the week.
After break we listened to the story of David and Goliath and discussed who was showing courage before going outside to act it out. We’re looking forward to more activities over the week including painting, decoupage and dancing.
Today we had our trip to LEGOLAND and it was the best day ever. First we explored the Star Wars Models area and thought the moving Death Star was brilliant and had great fun looking at everything else.
Next we went to our computer programming workshop and built a space bot using the LEGO WeDo software. We programmed it to move and change the colour of the light.
Then after lunch it was time to play and explore the rides. We all had a great day!
This morning we were learning about light and dark. We know that dark is the absence of light and that the moon isn’t a source of light. We can see the moon because light from the sun reflects off it. Next we’ll be building LEGO towers to investigate how shadows are formed.
This afternoon we were treated to Year 5’s judo lesson because they’re on residential. It was great fun and we learnt some new moves. Mark has given us letters about Judo summer classes in July and August so these should be in our bags. Sign up quickly as they’ll be full before you know it.
