This half term, we have been working very hard in class on our Passport to Europe topic. We have been researching different places in Europe, including the town of Hamelin where the Pied Piper originated. The pupils have used the internet to fact find and they have designed their own survey to find out where our favourite holiday destinations are. Jupiter have also been listening to music from around Europe, including Ravel’s “Bolero” and Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony” and have produced art work which reflected their feelings about the music.
In Literacy we have been looking at novels and have focused on “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl. We have enjoyed reading the story and identifying features of a novel, in order to start writing our own. We have written character and setting descriptions and are now moving onto writing our own full story. I am looking forward to the end results!
Working hard being authors in Literacy!
In Numeracy, we have focused on decimals and the pupils have worked really hard on their understanding of the concepts involved. We can identify tenths and hundredths and use them to solve problems.
