    North America – U.S.A Learning Update

    This spring term, we have been exploring all about the continent of North America and what makes the U.S.A so special.

    We have been learning all about how the U.S.A is part of the continent, North America.  We have produced fantastic art work, using Jasper Johns as our inspiration.

    Very soon, we will be completing tasks which look at the U.SA in more detail and we will go on a ‘road trip’ and visit Disneyland to complete some Topic Maths. Check our website soon for more photos of the children’s learning tasks.

    Here’s a photo of the children sequencing events from America’s history, using their knowledge of timelines and showing mathematical thinking to solve number clues.

  • Uncategorised Comments Off on World Book Day 2019!

    Today was World Book Day. This year, our school is celebrating how mathematics is everywhere, especially in books. We came to school dressed in stripes, patterns, shapes and numbers. Some of us had puzzles on our t-shirts relating to how old we are!

    We used today to explore our text for this half term, which is Jeremy Strong’s, ‘This is NOT a Fairy Tale’. We created a story map, which will help as we plan our own writing.

    We also looked at a text, The Viewer, which reminded us of how books open the world to us and give us different viewpoints through chosen narrators, historical contexts and authors’ opinions.

    Our Maths work was linked to circles and the art work contained in the text, The Viewer. We will also complete a puzzle about Top Recommended Reads and the pages they contain tomorrow.

     

    Thank you to all children and families for the effort today with your Maths themed t-shirts and outfits!

    Here’s some photos of the children completing their Maths tasks:

  • Uncategorised Comments Off on Cathedral Visit

    We visited the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool. This was linked to our Come and See topic, ‘Mission’. We learnt lots of facts about the history and architecture. Also, we explored the significance of the tapestries and sculptures within the cathedral. Brian, who was our tour guide, answered lots of our questions and explained about sacraments and the role of an archbishop. At the end of our guided tour, we had a moment of special reflection.
