# Geo boards!

In maths, we continued our shape learning today and used geo boards to make a range of quadrilaterals using elastic bands. We then needed to work out if the quadrilaterals we had made were regular or irregular and draw these in our books.

# Maths

In maths, we have been identifying the properties of shapes. We looked at regular and irregular shapes, how many sides they have and how many vertices. We also looked at different angles in the shapes which included right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles. Finally, we worked in teams of four and in partners, we picked a shape and the other team had to ask questions to try and work out the shape which we had picked. Whoever guessed the most amount of correct shapes, was the winner. We loved getting our competitive maths heads on!

# Orienteering!

On Monday, we started orienteering in our P.E lesson. We had a great time using a map of the school and exploring the school grounds to find the flags which have been placed in lots of different areas – even in the woods!

# Our contribution to the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Hi Everybody,

I hope you have had a lovely weekend and enjoyed all of the sunshine! Over the last few weeks, the news has been very harrowing to wake up to. In particular, the recent horrific fire at the Grenfell Tower. As a school, we have decided to raise money for those who have been affected by this terrible tragedy. Therefore, the children have been invited to wear their own clothes tomorrow and bring a donation of £1 which will be sent to help those within the community of the Tower. I am very sorry for the late notice of this and thank you for helping us to support this charitable event and as always, we send our thoughts and prayers to those who have lost so much.

Many thanks,

Miss Kidd

# Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Today, we had a fantastic time on our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We loved seeing all of the animals, including polar bears, lions, tigers and monkeys! We even got to hold a few mini animals too! A great way to spend a Friday. A huge thank you to the parent helpers, Mrs Murphy, Mrs English and Sarah, we really appreciated all of your hard work. We also had a surprise visit from Mrs Woodhead who got a huge cheer and hug from all of the children – lovely to see her again!

Have a great weekend,

Miss Kidd & Mrs Francis :)

# Science in the woods!

This week, we explored the woods during our science lesson. We had to find six different leaves in pairs and then use a key to identify the key features of the leaves. We had a great time and really enjoyed the sunny weather.

# A celebration of Hindu art and a very special dance!

As you know, on Monday, we celebrated our art week by putting on a display of the art and Y4 volunteered to do some special Indian dancing. We had a great time and thank you to all of the parents who came to celebrate with us…we hope you enjoyed our dance moves as much as we enjoyed performing them!

# Hindu Art

In art, we have been learning about how Hindu’s use henna art on their hands and feet and we created these by making our own designs using outline of hands. We also spent time designing our own Rangoli patterns.

# Re-telling the story of Rama and Sita.

In literacy, we have been learning about the story of Rama and Sita and how this relates to the celebration of Diwali. After we had re-told the story in drama, we then went on to make story maps.

# Welcome back!

This week we have been celebrating R.E and art week. The focus for this week has been Hinduism and we have had a great time exploring the religion and the different art works. At the beginning of the week, we learnt all about Hindu God’s and worship. We also researched lots of different facts relating to Hinduism and the four main beliefs.
