On Tuesday 26th March, Team LG will be working with Mr Fidment and a fellow officer from the cadets. During Spring 1, the children were extremely inquisitive about the lives of young soldiers during WW1. We read and listened to Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Private Peaceful’, which sparked the interest of the children to learn more about the life of child soldiers. To link with our PE curriculum, we are running a young soldiers training camp all day on the 26th March. This will take place in the school’s nature reserve or school hall, depending on the weather. Please could you ensure that your child brings two appropriate sets of clothes and some sensible shoes to participate in this activity. As we will be outside all day (if the weather allows us), we recommend that your child brings a jumper and a coat for the activities also. Your child will need to arrive in school uniform and then they will be given time to change into their appropriate clothing. Due to the current weather conditions, please be aware that the children’s clothing may get muddy and therefore it would be appropriate to send clothes/shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
We have continued our work on fractions this week by looking at equivalent fractions. We discussed that equivalence means 'the same' and used this to create bar models of fractions to show fractions that were equal to one another. After we had used visual representations of fractions we were able to see the link between multiplication and division strategies and used these to find equivalent fractions.
This week we have started working towards writing an Ancient Greek myth. On Monday, we had a visit from a Greek villager called Thespina, who told the class her problem and how she conquered the Scorpidon that had been terrorising the town. After Thespina's departure, we began to identify the features used in Greek mythical writing. A lot of our literacy work this week has been cross-curricular to enable us to have a secure understanding of who the Ancient Greeks were in order for us to write our own myths next week. We particularly focused on Greece itself, buildings and houses in Ancient Greece, clothing, Greek Gods/Goddesses and mythincal creatures (hybrid animals).
