It has been another busy week in Windrush Class; we have been preparing for the KS2 Christmas Service by learning our song, ‘Little Donkey’ as well as working hard in our lessons!
In English this week we have written out our best copies of the explanation texts that we have been working on. I am really impressed with how hard everyone has worked on their presentation – the finished pieces of writing look great! We have also started our next unit of work based on the book, ‘Star in a Jar’ by Sam Hay and Sarah Massini.
This week in our PE lessons we have continued to develop our running skills by focusing on relay races. We practised using the relay batons, and really worked on achieving a smooth handover to the next person.
In our Science lesson we continued to learn about how magnets work. We carried out different tests to learn more about the North and South poles on magnets, and we learn about how magnets can repel as well as attract each other.
We all had great fun in our History lesson this week as we made our own Bell Beakers based on the pottery work that people did in the Bronze Age. Last week we looked at different Bell Beakers that had been found by archaeologists; we particularly focused on the shape of the pot and the patterns on the sides. We then designed our own patterns based on the ones we had observed. On Friday, we made our Bell Beakers and engraved the patterns into the sides.
