Sunday 13th October - Junior Parkrun

 

A huge congratulations to those children from Team Whales that took part in a very wet and muddy Junior Parkrun this weekend. It was great to see so much support from family and friends for the children as they completed their 2km run around Forest Recreational Ground. Head over to the Gallery section of the website to see a video and some pictures of the children in action. 

 

We would also like to congratulate all those children that have been regularly attending the running club after school on Thursdays. We understand that not all children were able to get to the Junior Parkrun but want to acknowledge all the hard work and effort the children have put in over the past six weeks.

Wednesday 9th October - Making jam sandwiches

 

This week we have been looking at the features of instructions. In particular we have learnt that an imperative verb is a bossy, doing word and usually found at the start of a command type of sentence. Today we got to make jam sandwiches and thought about the order of the steps it takes to make them - we even got to eat them!

 

 

We will be writing our instructions tomorrow.

Tuesday 1st October - Our version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons

Still image for this video
This afternoon we explored a range of instruments and composed music to represent a season. We thought about the tempo and dynamic of our piece and discussed which instruments would be best for each season. At the end we arranged our pieces and followed a conductor to play the seasons in order.
