For those children transferring to Ryburn Valley High School in September here is some information for our children on the Special Educational Needs Register.
In Literacy this half term, we are reading and analyzing Escape from Rome by Caroline Lawrence; so far the children have found this very exciting, why not ask them about it? We have been concentrating on writing diary entries from the character's point of view, editing and improving them.
In Autumn Term all classes work on place value, in Venus Class we have been reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 10 million. Using place value cards and some other practical maths equipment the children have all made progress in this area.
To begin our topic of Romans we had a visitor, Jeffery Andrews, who arranged for the children to be archaeologists for the morning finding different Roman artifacts. After this, they used different shapes to create a Roman style mosaic artwork.
We have been investigating forces including gravity and air resistance. To test out our theories, we made some parachutes.
