It's been a very active week in Hedgehogs this week! The class have enjoyed getting all the gym equipment out and exploring what their bodies can do.
In English, we have written our own play scripts and the children are busy now rehearsing these plays ready to perform to the class. We've been practicing getting into different roles and discussing characters' emotions and feelings. See if you can work out how the characters are feeling below!
It's been an exciting start to the term so far! We have launched our new topic- Famous Britons- and the children having been finding out about British legends who have changed our history. We've started reading Macbeth in English and used the witches spell to produce some imaginative pieces of writing- including: descriptive writing about the witches; poems in the style of Shakespeare and instructional writing based on our spells. Here's some pictures of us acting in the role of the witches:
As well as English, the class have been using Macbeth to learn a song in music and a 'witchy' dance in P.E.
In science, we have started looking at changing materials and discovered that cornflour mixed with water acts like both a solid and a liquid. In maths, we have been calculating the area and perimeter of shapes and the children have persevered with some tricky reasoning questions.
Well done to Mark and Rosie S for receiving certificates in assembly this week- very well deserved too!
We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all in
During anti-bullying week, the children learnt all about what bullying was; the different forms of bullying; why people might bully and how bullying affects the victim. We learnt a song, created posters and powerpoints and also took part in role-plays.
You can see us in role, in the following pictures. These plays taught others about bullying and how it is a deliberate and repetitive act that often involves an imbalance in power.
In Science we are studying plants. We have discussed the different parts of a flowering plant and dissected flowers to identify and label these parts. We're also trying to answer the question- If I cut off a part of a plant and re-pot it, will it grow back? We've propagated our plant parts and will be observing over the next few weeks what happens. Here's a bit of our work in action:
