We have had lots of fun with our learning in Windrush Class this week!
In English, we have now finished writing our own traditional tales with a twist, based on The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. The children have worked so hard on their independent writing and have thought of lots of fantastic ideas. Next week, we will be having a go at editing our writing.
We had our third music lesson on Thursday; the class are becoming experts in safely holding their instruments and preparing their bows. This week we focused on rhythm and pulse; we enjoyed learning about the different notes we can play and used the D and G strings to play three different songs. We also learnt that pizzicato means that we pluck the strings; in one song we had to really concentrate as had to swap between pizzicato and using a bow!
In Science we learned about the human skeleton and the names of different bones. The class really enjoyed taking on the roles of ‘the scientist’ and ‘the skeleton’ as we labelled the bones in our bodies. We also started to learn more about the scientific names for the bones, such as cranium and patella.
In our PE lessons this week we have taken part in our first Inter-House competition of the year. This competition was based around football skills; the children all tried their best and were also very encouraging of their teams!
