Football Fun

 

Doves were very lucky to have some very special football coaching from year 5 this week. Swallows Class taught us the skills they have learnt so far in their football sessions. We then had a chance to put these into practice playing some team games. A massive thank you to Swallows class and Mrs McCall.

Our poppy art

We thought all about remembrance and the symbol of the poppy. We discussed how this relates to rememberance day and why it is important we still wear poppies. We then used mixed media to create these pictures to represent their importance.

Welcome to the second half of the Autumn term. Have a look at what we will be covering in our new topic 'Powerful Plants'. This is subject to change based on the children's needs and interests. 

Maths

 

This week in maths we are looking at division. Today we have been exploring using concrete methods to understand how the division symbol relates to our abstract number sentences. We used various equipment to help us find the answers to our problems.

Internet Saftey

In our computing lessons we have been exploring the importance of staying safe online. We talked about what we should do in different online situations and came up with some rules to help people stay safe. We then designed posters to remind others how to keep safe when on the Internet.

Harvest

For the harvest festival we wrote a poem as a class. We all thought about what the harvest means to us and then tried to encoperate our ideas into one class poem. We then read this out in church at the harvest festival.

God's Wonderful World
We have been exploring God's wonderful world in R.E. We went into the playground to look for evidence of God's creation in our own environment. We tried to collect all the colours of the rainbow on our paint pallets. These represented how God painted the world with colour. When we went back to the classroom we wrote about what we thought was special about the world.

Our class charter

We have been thinking about the rights of the child and how these affect us at school. We decided these (included on our charter) were the most important rights and that we would like them as part of our class charter. We then chose rules that we would like to follow in Doves class to make it a happy place for us to learn. Finally, we drew around our hands and decorated them, showing that we would all uphold the charter we had made.

This week we have been looking at 'Willy the Dreamer' by Anthony Browne. On Tuesday afternoon we explored the dreams that Willy has and how we thought they would sound. We then performed our pieces to the rest of Doves class.
