Today, Phase 2 Water were looking at different beliefs on looking after the world and everything in it. We focused on what the Bible says about Christians having a responsibility to care for God’s earth. We also discussed how this does not always happen and we read the book ‘Fish’ by Brendan Kearney which shows how our oceans are polluted and full of rubbish because humans have not looked after them. The pupils then created pieces of art to reflect this important topic.

This weeks home learning is in preparation for our new unit of Pioneers and Engineers.
We would like you to research Pioneers and Engineers who are important to our history and create fact file about them and their work. Or… you can create a list of Pioneers and Engineers and give a brief description detailing why they became so important to the development of the world we know today.

Here is an outline of what we will be learning this week. We are going to have a fab final week of the half term.
Today in group 3, we continued our learning of 3D shapes by making them out of items in the classroom and using paper shape nets. The children did a great job, discussing the shape’s properties as they made them. One student even taught the class to draw the perfect cube.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
This afternoon, Phase 2 learnt about the parable of the mustard seed. We know that a parable is a story that Jesus told and he told this parable to explain that although the Kingdom of God may seem small, it can grow into something great and powerful. Have a look at our Stop Motion videos to show our understanding of this parable.
LO: To compare and classify right angled and equilateral triangles
Today in Maths, Group 4 were learning about right angled triangles and equilateral triangles. We learnt that a right angled triangle is a triangle with one right angle and an equilateral triangle has equal sides and equal angles. We then tried a challenge to see how many equilateral triangles we can fit inside a large equilateral triangle. We did a great job!
The witches in guided reading
During guided reading this week, we have been reading a cryptic text about witches plotting to do something terrible. Group 3 were tasked to predict what would happen next in the story and write the next part of the story in pairs. The children displayed their amazing imaginations today, with some great ideas shown through their writing,.

On Friday we will be learning about the artist Jan Poynter and her work. Please have a look at some of her art and have a go at sketching something from outside your window, taking inspiration for her work. We look forward to seeing your art tomorrow.
Please log into Times Table Rockstars and spend 15 minutes practising your times tables. Please also complete 2 sound checks so we can see how you have got on.
Today, air were exploring 3D shapes and their properties. Using what we already know about 2D shapes and using our new star words (edges, faces, verticies), the children became pros at describing and naming shapes.
LO: To use brush techniques to produce shapes and textures
This afternoon, Phase 2 Water looked at the work of artist Sandra Silberzweig to inspire their own piece of art. They used paintbrushes to make different textures, brush strokes and patterns. We also discussed how Silberzweig’s art shows different expressions and how this reflects our own personalities, which are made up of many different characteristics.
