Diary of a Disciple with Jane Webber

Today we used plaster of Paris to create a Roman tile. We then made power paints and added them to the wet plaster.

This was our practise for our final piece after half term. We got very messy but had lots of fun.

Music with Mr Kitcher

PSHE- Health services

This week we thought about which health services we use in different situations. We thought about the information we would need to give if we called 111 or 999. Some of us were unsure of our dates of birth, postcodes and street names and numbers. We are going to find these out when we get home.

PE- Skipping and Gymnastics

This week we have been using exercise to help us unwind and relax. We really enjoy our daily skipping breaks. We also practised rolls, jumps and kicks in gymnastics and created our own sequences.

Science- Testing how sound travels through different materials.

English- Sequencing The Selfish Giant

We sequenced The Selfish Giant which we have been reading this half term. This then helped us in our next step which was planning our own version of the story.

We have been practising our running stitch and back stitch as well s attaching buttons and items to fabric. Our next step is to analyse different bags and their uses. After half term we will design,make and evaluate our bags.

PSHE- Personal space

We spent some time this week thinking about personal space, both physical as well as online and outside school. The children did a lot of reflecting on this and shared some great thoughts.

In Oak class we love to celebrate each other, we also love to write. Here we are sharing our diary entries from our class book The Selfish Giant.

Worship Council - leading class worship

This week the Worship Council gathered and reset for the year ahead. They kicked off by planning and delivering Picture News in Oak class. What a great job they did.

Geography-using digimaps to produce aerial, historical and OS maps of The Thames

The children used digimaps independently to produce and annotate historical, OS and aerial maps of The Thames and nearby landmarks.

PE- pupils leading warm ups

Our sports leaders have been planning and leading some fun and team building warm ups for us. We are showing courage when having a go at their great activities.

Science- sound

To understand the way that we hear sounds we recreated a model of the ear using clay. We then labelled the different parts of the ear. This helped us to understand the way in which sound travels.

We kick started our topic of The Roman Empire by researching key events in world history. We then rearranged key events on a timeline before recording them for ourselves. We are really excited to get stuck in to this topic.
