Pirates in Maple
In PE this week we have been starting to learn about playing rounders. We have started with hitting a ball and catching so we can move onto batting and fielding. The children have really enjoyed this and have been using their maths skills to add up how many points each team has earned!
In topic we learnt about Queen Elizabeth I and some of the issues she faced as Queen. We discussed how these would be dealt with in modern times and then we were asked to be her Royal Advisers and gave advice based upon our opinions.
We are continuing with the Scratch Jr app in computing and the children are getting really good at following the program and analysing it when there are problems. This shows real perseverance!
In art we explore how to rip paper to make curls and rough edges ready to write a letter to Jim in our English topic. On Friday we wrote the letters then in the afternoon we stained the paper with tea bags to age it. The children really enjoyed this new use for old tea bags!
Have a great weekend!
