Highmoor week commencing 12th October
Date: 16th Oct 2020 @ 1:43pm
On Monday we went on our first class trip to the River and Rowing Museum. We had great fun learning all about bridges, why, where and how they are built, how they have changed over time and some of the features of them. We walked to and sketched Henley Bridge then returned to the museum for a bridge building workshop where we constructed our own bridges. We had to build a bridge that spanned across a 22cm gap and held at least 20 2p coins. After lunch we investigated the galleries in the museum finding out more about bridges in general and Henley Bridge.
Back in the classroom we continued learning addition and subtraction techniques and applying these to word problems.
We wrote a playscript for a scene from the book Matilda; thinking carefully about how we set our script out. We also wrote autumnal acrostic poems which was trickier than it sounds as we had to include a noun, verb, adjective and adverb in each line.
We thoroughly enjoyed doing some leaf rubbings with wax crayons in art ready to display along with our poems.
Our week ended on a real high with our sponsored walk to raise funds for the Dipper family whose 2 children are members of Peppard Class. The sun shone for us and we had great fun walking through the woods stopping to refuel on hot chocolate halfway. Please can any sponsor forms and money be returned to school?
Spellings for this week can be downloaded from the school website. Sumdog homework is also posted on there as a reminder but you just need to log on to Sumdog and complete the challenge set for you. As always please find the time to read and practise times tables every day.
Have a great weekend everyone!
