Otter Blog (most recent first) :
Week commencing 7th October.
Wow! What a busy week. Most of the children have completed their Cycling Proficiency training over two days. Thank you to the parents, relatives and siblings who volunteered to help. In addition, they acted as guides for new parents who were looking around the school during our Open Morning. Everyone was most impressed by their politeness and their enthusiam for their school.
On Tuesday, we had a lesson in Skateboarding from Rubicon and everyone agreed that it was awesome!
Several children represented the school on Wednesday at Tag Rugby at Wayland School and came back clutching medals and a shiny cup.
In between, we have learned how to use a formal method of long division and written about the character of Tip from 'Street Child'.
Autumn Term 2019
Otters are learning about The Victorians, in particular about how the lives of children changed in Victorian times.
We are reading 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty which tells the story of Jim Jarvis who inspired Barnardo to set up his children's refuge. We are using this to study themes, settings and characters. The pictures below show our freezeframe drama in which we thought about what the characters would be feeling at a particular point in the story.
In maths, we have been reading and writing larger numbers and are now honing up our calculation skills.
We have researched some of the important discoveries in electricity and are making circuits and drawing them using the correct symbols.
