W/c 1st July 2024

We have had another busy week involving lines of symmetry and drawing polygons, learning about the features of playscripts and bug hunting.  Read on to find out more. 


This week in Maths Year 3 have been learning about horizontal and vertical lines, as well as the difference between parallel and perpendicular lines. They have thought about how you recognise and describe 2D shapes and how polygons can be drawn accurately and neatly. Can you explain this True or False question to your grown up about parallel and perpendicular lines?

Year 4 have also carried on with their unit on shape, which has seen them this week learn about quadrilaterals and their properties, polygons and lines of symmetry.  They have also undertaken the tricky task of completing a symmetrical picture or shape using squared paper. Can you explain this True or False question to your grown-up?

In English this week we have begun our new unit of playscripts. The children began this unit by completing a comprehension on a playscript to get them used to the unusual format of this type of writing.  We then looked at a variety of playscripts and tried to identify what features we could spot from this.  We finished off the week by watching a short film with no dialogue.  We decided how we could separate this film into scenes and what would be in each scene.  From this we will begin to write our own playscripts next week. 


In Science we had a wonderful afternoon investigating the variety of invertebrates that live in our Forest School area. We used a classification grid to identify the variety of invertebrates that lived there.  We then identified what they were and looked in more detail at their characteristics. We then looked in more detail at characteristics of animals and identified what are characteristics and what are similarities.


The Year 4’s also had the opportunity this week to camp on the field on Friday evening. We will be uploading photos of this for you to see as soon as possible.


Have a lovely weekend

Stay safe
