Autumn 2 2020
In November we designed, created and evaluated our model houses in DT.
In Maths the children we have been learning about multiplication and division.
In December we spent lots of time making Christmas cards, decorations and the children wrote their Christmas lists and letters to explain how they celebrate Christmas.
We even had time for a Christmas party. We played musical statues, musical chairs, danced, ate party food and played stick the nose on the snowman.
This half term has been a strange term for us all. The children working at home and at school have been working so hard and have produced some fantastic pieces of work.
In Science, this half term we have been identifying and naming a variety of common animals and describing and comparing the structure of a variety of common animals (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals including pets). The children have been drawing pictures and naming different animals. Also they have been labelling the structure of the different animals.
In English, we looked at the poem called 'Please don't feed the animals' by Robert Hull. The children drew pictures of the different animals and described them using adjectives.
In Art, we have been looking at the primary colours and colour mixing. The children produced their own version of '0 through to 9' by Jasper Johns.
In RE, we have looked at the four different parables, they were called The Lost Sheep, The Lost Son, The Lost Coin and The Good Samaritan.
It has been wonderful having all the children back in Gipping Class. Since being back in school, the children have been very busy creating some fantastic pieces of work.
We celebrated 'World Book Day' on Thursday 4th March, by taking part in different reading activities and we retold our a favourite stories to our friends. We also made masks of our favourite characters.
In English, we looked at a book called 'Michael Recycle' and wrote some instructions about 'How to Look After the World'.
We also looked at the story called 'The Little Red Hen' and created pictures of The Little Red Hen using handprints.
In Art, we have been creating repeating patterns on fabric using oil pastels and brusho.
In RE, we have been trying to answer the question 'Why do Christians pray and worship God?' The children thought of different adjectives to describe God and they drew pictures to explain the meaning of the Lord's Prayer.
This term we are looking forward to learning about Space.
We will be finding out the planets, Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.
We will be looking at the stories called 'Whatever Next', 'Beegu' and 'The Man on the Moon'.
