The children have been learning about rhythm this week being a pattern of sounds. They have also learned to recognise the musical notes: crochet and quaver and their values. We used pictures and words to help us remember the rhythm and length of beat. Then we  progressed to reading only musical notation to create a clapping rhythm. The session culminated in a quiz where a rhythm was clapped and the children had to match this with one of the sequences of notes displayed. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session.

In ReflectEd the children learned about motivation and how motivation can help us to become more successful learners. To demonstrate this, they tackled the challenge of moving oil covered jelly cubes from one plate to another using chopsticks! The motivation was that they would receive extra playtime if they could improve their score on their second attempt. The children certainly rose to the challenge! They had great fun doing this and gained much from the activity. Well done everyone!

In spellings, Pine Class have been learning about the ‘ough’ letter string. After reading a poem about the trials of spelling, the children investigated  the different sounds that the grapheme ‘ough’ can make and identified eight! Next, using as many words as possible with the letter string being investigated in, they created their own poems with their partner and shared them with the class. This exercise revealed what wonderful poets we have in Pine Class, as we were treated to an impressive range of themes and structures. Super work!

Pine Class have truly embraced our space themed dance topic. They have participated in peer led warm ups with increasing commitment and have listened carefully to the music to help them create relevant moves to tell a story.  After only  two weeks of choreographing in pairs, the children have improved and extended their ideas to incorporate unison and mirroring; next week they will be moving on to asymmetrical shapes before forming groups of four where their ideas will come together. Well done Pine Class, very proud of your efforts.

What an excellent example of homework is on display in Pine Class! The children have astounded us with their wonderful work. They have used a myriad of  artistic  techniques to share their understanding of our Solar System and done so to an impressively high standard. We are all looking forward to each child presenting their efforts next week when they will be explaining how they created their work and why they chose to do it in that specific style. Very well done Pine Class; we are very proud of you all.

Well done Pine class for showing determination and independence whilst creating your wonderful cross stitch Christmas cards.

They are really starting to take shape and I know they will be fantastic when finished.

Keep up the good work, Pine class.

Geographical knowledge of the UK was tested this week in Pine Class. The children shared their initial understanding of the differences between The British Isles, Great Britain and The United Kingdom then researched and learned what they really are. They went on to explore atlases and found the capital cities of the UK, each country’s longest river and highest peak. The children showed enthusiasm when using the atlases and took care when recording the information on their maps.

PINE 

 

Independence and resilience have been on show over the last couple of weeks by Pine Class as they have taken on the challenge of designing their Christmas card. Their choice of  designs have been inspired by our topic about Selby Abbey and have produced some very intricate designs. Sewing has now begun  and with the support of Mrs Stones, Mrs Mackintosh and myself (amongst others) we are all determined to meet the deadline!

On Tuesday, in science, the children were learning about the difference in size between the Sun, Earth and Moon. To help grasp the enormity of this, we used a beech ball, to represent the Sun, and a tennis ball, to represent  the Moon, and a child lined the two bodies up from the perspective of Earth. The ‘Sun’ and ‘Earth’ stepped away from the ‘Moon’ until they looked a similar size (as they do in the sky). We were astounded at the distance the three bodies needed to separate before becoming a similar size: the full length of the playground!
