Rhyming Poetry in Maple
This week we have been working on poetry in our English lessons and by the end of the week the children have been able to write some lovely rhyming poems about animals! Please pop in to see their work throughout the week.
We have been very lucky in school to have extra PE lessons starting and the children are thoroughly enjoying this opportunity! We now have PE on a Tuesday and a Wednesday and PE kits stay in school until the end of the half term when they can be taken home. This is so PE kits are available for lessons as the children don’t like to miss out!
In maths we have made a great start on statistics by making pictograms and tally charts. We have been using real life examples; we started with Maple’s favourite fruits, our pets and have even use data about eye colour!
We have continued our topic by looking at what the children do after school and comparing it to what their parents used to do after school. The children were fascinated with the different activities that we all did. Maybe you could teach them some of the games you used to play outside?
Finally, in art we have painted a self-portrait in the style of Franciose Neilly – this was a lovely activity that the children really took on board. Ask them about the technique she uses to paint! I can’t wait to show you all some of them once they are dry!
Have a great weekend!
