Highmoor 18th February

Date: 18th Feb 2022 @ 3:04pm

Welcome to the final week of half term. 

We hope you have all stayed safe today and that your homes and belongings have avoided any damage.

In literacy this week we have focussed on our performance skills. We read another playscript of a myth - this time Maui and the Sun - and thought more about the similarities and differences between other myths we've read. We had great fun acting out the story in small groups. We researched and created posters about plants with Mrs Griffith ready to present to the rest of the class.

In maths year 4s have been multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. Year 3s have been consolidating multiplication and division skills and using times tables knowledge to solve related calculations eg 4 x 8, 4 x 80. We have also been working on our fractions with Mrs Griffith.

We painted our mythical monsters modroc masks on Monday and are very happy with the results. 

Wednesday was DT day. We learnt about the digital revolution and how things have moved on so quickly. After watching a promotional video for the WAYV harness - a safety harness for cyclists - we designed our own safety pouches/bags for children to use when walking when it is dark. We used ipads to programme leds on micro bits to light up when it becomes dark. We had great fun linking up our code to the actual devices so that we could see what they look like. We then designed a bag or carry pouch for the micro bits and thought about the materials we would use. We then used another app on ipads to design point of sale badges.

Some children were involved in a football competition Wednesday afternoon and had a great time. All children represented our school well.

In French we practised our body parts with a game of Jacque a dit.

Next term we will be reading Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. If anyone has a copy it would be very helpful if they can be in school to make reading easier. 

Have a lovely half term everyone and enjoy the break.
