Last Weeks Catch Up

Posted 12/12/2018

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!

In PE this week, the children have been working on their sequences which now include bench work and floor work. They are developing their skills and confidence through practise and coaching from our in house gymnasts, who share examples of good practise. Today our focus was travelling along the bench in different ways, incorporating a 3 -5 second balance.  Great enthusiasm by all!

Last Thursday, Pine Class were visited by  two archaeologists. The visit was linked to our Selby Abbey topic as the archaeologists are working on Abbot’s Staith in Selby, which was believed to be part of the Benedictine monastery . The children sorted and  attempted to identify, and sketched various artefacts that had been brought in, including animal bones, pottery and metal finds.

The children investigated the properties of materials this week in science. They tested for electrical conductivity, magnetism, flexibility; considered whether materials may be soluble or not and whether they may be good thermal conductors. They thoroughly enjoyed testing and considering and will go on to think about why objects are made from specific materials.

Elm Class were excited to begin learning British Sign Language as part of their reflected lessons. The children learnt to finger spell their names and discussed how they felt about their learning at the start and end of the lesson. We talked about what strategies we could use to keep improving.

This week Pine Class used the Rally Robin structure to share their homework research on Selby Abbey. Working in pairs, they ‘rallied’ their ideas back and forth, taking turns to explain each fact to their partner. The session resulted in a multitude of information being shared, along with photographs and even books! Many thanks for the support the children had in completing this work.
