Welcome to Goldfinches’ Weekly Blog

What another hardworking week we have had whilst enjoying the fact that summer really is here! Once again, your Goldfinches have all made me so proud of their passion for learning.

 Star of the week goes to: Mason M

 Top Table award goes to: Francesca

Trip (in school) we are looking forward to having The Makers of History company on Wednesday for our experience going back in time to the Roman Empire.

In worship this week we have been discussing Global Goal 13- Climate Action. We have loved listening to Jack Johnson’s 3 Rs song to help us think about the actions we can take to recycle, reuse and reduce our waste. We watched the video which explains how to turn our old t-shirts into re-useable bags and look forward to doing this on Friday.

It was lovely to zoom call with our lovely Miss Randles for her last day of work before starting her maternity leave last week.

And.. what a lovely surprise visit we had from Rocky the parrot! A super start to our Thursday! Thank you Ryan and  Ryan's mum!

 

English- I cannot be more proud of the enthusiasm, care and effort all of our lovely Goldfinches have put into their ‘best piece of writing yet’ in Y4. Our stories of ‘Escape to Pompeii’ are wonderful.

Spellings- we will be focusing on words from the 4th column of the Y3/4 words.

Our words this week are: minute, natural, naughty, notice, occasion, occasionally, often, opposite, ordinary, signature

Please work with your child to ensure he or she understands the meanings of the words and can use them in a sentence as well as being able to spell them. There are different suggestions of activities to do each week to support practising the spellings.

Reading- We have continued with our ‘Volcanoes’ book and have enjoyed using questioning strategies to form our own questions for each other to answer.

 

Maths- we have begun learning about decimal numbers and equivalent fractions and have really impressed Mrs Evans with our quick learning.

The Multiplication Tables Check App is coming up soon- we will be ready to have a go at the trial version by the 25th June.

The official Y4 multiplication check has been postponed until next year, however, as a school we have made the decision to trial it for ourselves this year. The game below is almost the same as the format for the multiplication check we will do in June. Please support your child to practise using this at home regularly alongside TTRock Stars

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

This week we will have a go at the official practise site to become familiar with how it works and what we have to do.

Science- we used our knowledge of classification keys to classify leaves and creating our own questions. We had a lovely walk in track time on Thursday to identify some of the trees in our school grounds

 

RE- Our RE topic is Judaism where we worked very hard to write about the Israelites on Monday.

 

History and Geography- we completed our inquiry about our big question: What Legacy was left by the Ancient Greek civilisation? by studying and researching different themes and sub-questions about Ancient Greece.

 

German- this week we will have enjoyed learning to ask ‘Wo wohnst du? (where do you live?).

 

PE- this half term will focus on Athletics and Striking and Batting games (rounders and cricket). It will continue to be on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child wears the Lostock Gralam PE uniform and has long hair tied back and earrings removed or covered please.

Cricket club was very well attended. Please ensure that if your child is attending they wear their PE uniform, not their own clothes during the day and follow the same safety rules of bringing a hair band for long hair and taking earrings out/covering them with tape.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the school office if you want to discuss anything regarding your child.

Week commencing Monday 21st June

 

Hello Starlings and welcome back to our weekly class blog.

We have had another busy and sun-filled week in Starlings class and are so proud of the hard work we are doing to join our handwriting.

 

English

In writing we have continued to use the text ‘Toys in Space’ by Mini Grey to inspire our writing. We have been looking at the different characters in the book and thinking about how we can describe and compare them. In our sentence writing, we have been learning to use ! and ? at the end of our sentences.

Next week, we will be using the senses to help us to explore how the toys might be feeling. We will also be writing descriptive sentences for our own space creatures.

 

Maths

In Maths we have been using our knowledge of numbers to 50 and the symbols less than < and greater than  >  to help us to compare and order objects and numbers.

Next week we will be counting in twos and fives, and we will be applying our learning to help us to solve word problems for addition and subtraction.  

 

History

In topic this week we have been using our history skills to learn about how cars have changed throughout time and exploring the differences in their size, shapes, what materials they were made from and what they were used for. We made timelines to show chronological order.

 

 

Phonics

This week our groups have been learning:

Red Group

Sounds focus: ck, sh

Book: A Cat in a Pot

Swallows Weekly Blog – 18.6.21

 

Hello Swallows and welcome back to our class blog.

Wow! What a busy week we have had!

 

Thank you so much for persevering with our tricky spellings this week. I am amazed by how many of you chose to use our new and exciting vocabulary in your writing this week. Focusing on spelling topic based vocabulary often gives the children the confidence to use more adventurous word choices independently in their writing. I am very proud of you all for writing such amazing adventure stories.

Our Maths learning focused on multiplication this week. We made and described arrays and represented equal groups using both pictures and objects.  Please continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars to learn your times tables.

Our reading focused on clarifying vocabulary and inferring meaning this week. We answered comprehension style questions and used the text to explain how we know we are right. Please encourage your Swallow to refer to the text when answering questions about what they are reading at home.

 

Please see your diary for this week’s spellings. Our next quiz will be on Friday 25th June 2021.

TRIP

Swallows class will visit Delamere Forest on Monday 21st June. We will be going on a forest walk to explore habitats and build dens. We will splash in the stream, hug a tree and enjoy team games in the beautiful forest setting.

 

Please ensure that you are in school for 8:30 on Monday morning. We will return at approximately 4pm.

 

The children need to wear old clothes including tracksuit bottoms to protect their legs, wellies and a waterproof coat. Please also ensure that you apply sun cream before coming to school in the morning.

The children can bring their own lunch in a named carrier bag which can be disposed of when finished.  No packed lunch bags or boxes please. Mrs Macey will prepare pre-ordered school lunch bags which contain a small drink. It is important that the children bring an additional, named water bottle to drink throughout the day.  

 

Wishing you all a lovely, happy and safe weekend. I am SO excited for Monday!

With lots of love from

Skylarks W.B. 21.06.21, by Miss Beattie

Date: 17th Jun 2021 @ 8:05am

Hello everyone and welcome back to our weekly blog! We have had another super week of learning in Skylarks Class😊

In our English lessons next week, we will continue to explore our text ‘The Darkest Dark’ by Chris Hadfield. We will also read an accompanying book called ‘One Giant Leap’ and will use this text to retrieve and record factual information about the first moon landing. We will then develop these facts to create sentences with parenthesis (extra information or an afterthought usually marked off with brackets, dashes, or commas).

In our reading lessons will continue to read about the International Space Station and will focus our learning on how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning. We will also focus on differentiating between fact and opinion.

In maths we will be focusing on subtracting fractions, including improper fractions and mixed numbers. We will also use our knowledge of equivalent fractions to help us give our answers in the simplest form. We will continue to consolidate our knowledge of the four operations through daily 4-a-day activities.

In science we will continue to add to our knowledge of the solar system. We will make models to help us understand that day and night are caused by the rotation of the Earth, and that the Sun only appears to move across the sky.

In RE we will be learning about the connection between forgiveness and acting justly. We will think about the different verses we have read so far and will use role play to show how the pharisees and teachers of the law did not act justly and will make suggestions as to how they should have acted instead.

Our PE days will be Thursday and Friday so your child should come to school in their PE kit on these days. Please remember PE kits should either be school kits or plain black/blue.

 

Homework

The children should complete pages 48 and 49 of their maths book to be returned by Friday 25th June. This homework is looking at calculating perimeter.

Remember, if your child is unable to complete their homework at home, Mrs Hulse and I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Wednesday lunchtime so that they can complete it in school. During this lunchtime, any children who may be struggling on a particular question at home can also come to ask an adult for help.

Please encourage your child to read and practice their spellings/times tables in addition to their maths homework.

 

Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 25th June will focus on words ending in the suffix -ence:

absence, evidence, independence, intelligence, silence, confidence, competence, magnificence

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact 😊

Last week we had a wonderful return to school following the half term break and we have been very busy learning and having fun in the sunshine!

 

English

In writing we have started our brand new text ‘Toys in Space’ by Mini Grey. We have been introduced to the different characters and have been using the very important skill of inference to think about how the toys might feel and what they might be thinking. We then wrote sentences to share our ideas, using the word ‘and’ to join more than one idea in a sentence.

This week we will be learning to punctuate sentences with ? ! and .

We will also be comparing the different characters from the book.

 

Maths

In Maths we have been learning all about numbers to 50. We can now count to 50 and find missing numbers to 50, and we can use part part whole to represent numbers to 50 by using tens and ones.

This week we will be counting in twos, and then using < and > to compare sets of objects.

 

Topic

Last week we learned all about The Flying Scotsman, we found out where it got its name from, plotted where it travelled on the map, talked about the impact it made on people’s lives and measured out its length.

Skylarks W.B. 14.06.21, by Miss Beattie

Date: 13th Jun 2021 @ 7:39pm

Hello everyone 😊

Welcome back to our weekly blog! A great first week back for Skylarks Class. Our trip on Tuesday was fantastic and I’m sure the children have told you all about their new knowledge of Viking and Anglo-Saxon society. The children were a credit to themselves and Lostock 😊

This week in our English lessons we will delve into our new book ‘The Darkest Dark’ by Chris Hadfield. We will focus on technical vocabulary and relative clauses and will use these to write a biography about Hadfield’s early life and a recount of one of his childhood events.

In our reading lessons will continue to read about the International Space Station and will focus our learning on how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning.

In maths we will continue to focus on fractions. In particular, we will learn how to add and subtract fractions including mixed numbers. We will also consolidate our knowledge of the four operations through 4-a-day activities.

During our topic day we will use our learning from our trip to Tatton Hall as well as further research to answer the enquiry question, ‘Were the Vikings ruthless killers or peaceful settlers?’

In science we will learn the name, size and position of each of the planets and will create our own labelled diagrams. We will also learn about the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the Sun. Finally, we will discover that ancient astronomers believed in the geocentric model of the solar system, and the reasons why it was replaced by the heliocentric model.

In RE we will be learning about the difference between ‘forgiveness’ and ‘justice’. We will look at examples of both in the bible before debating whether forgiveness and justice can go hand in hand.

Our PE days will be Thursday and Friday so your child should come to school in their PE kit on these days. Please remember PE kits should either be school kits or plain black/blue.

 

Homework

The children should complete pages 30 and 31 of their maths book to be returned by Friday 18th June. This homework is looking at adding and subtracting fractions.  

Remember, if your child is unable to complete their homework at home, Mrs Hulse and I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Wednesday lunchtime so that they can complete it in school. During this lunchtime, any children who may be struggling on a particular question at home can also come to ask an adult for help.

Please encourage your child to read and practice their spellings/times tables in addition to their maths homework.

 

Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 18th June will be the next 10 words from the year 5/6 statutory word list:

identity, immediately, individual, interfere, interrupt, language, leisure, lightning, marvellous, mischievous

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact 😊

Robins 14th June 2021, by Mrs Rice

Date: 11th Jun 2021 @ 3:51pm

Hi everyone

What a fabulous week of learning we have had after the half term holidays. Robins class have been using their Geography skills to locate human and physical features of our grounds using the 8 points of the compass. We have been exploring our new Christian Value of Courage and how we can use the lessons that Jesus gives us in the Bible in our own lives.

Next week, in Maths, we will continue our work with fractions. The children will be adding and subtracting parts of the whole and finding fractions of amounts.

In Writing, we will begin a new exciting book Zeraffa Giraffa by Diane Hoffmeyer. We will be learning about how organisational devices such as headings and sub headings can help to present information clearly. We will also be learning how to use alliteration and repeating phrases to persuade the reader.

Our Reading lessons will focus on reading comprehensions skills based around inference. The children will also explore themes within Iron Man and what we think the author's massage to the reader was. 

This week's spellings focus on the prexix 'sub' meaning below or under.

subzero, subsoil, subdivide, subway, submarine, subtitle, subheading, submerge.

Our Science learning is based around 'Animals and Humans'. This week, we will learning about the type and amount of nutritian that humans need and what is meant by a balanced diet. 

Our RE lessons are based upon how Hindu families celebrate and worship God. 

I am really proud of the children's attitudes to learning and their kindness to each other. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Many thanks

Goldfinches WB 14th June, by Mrs Evans

Date: 10th Jun 2021 @ 5:11pm

Welcome to Goldfinches’ Weekly Blog

What another hardworking week we have had whilst enjoying the fact that summer really is here!

 Star of the week goes to: Sophie

 Top Table award goes to: Ryan

In worship this week we have been discussing the Christian Value of Courage. We listened to the story of Moses in the burning bush and the courage he showed. We have written a shared acrostic poem for courage and have considered an up and coming challenge which might require us to show courage.

On Friday we will hopefully have a zoom call with our lovely Miss Randles for her last day of work before starting her maternity leave. We send her and her new baby all our love and best wishes. I will be popping round to her in the next couple of weeks and would be happy to pass on any gifts you may have as I know some of you had asked about this. Thank you all again for sending in such gorgeous photos of your child for the card.

Next week we welcome Mrs Shimmin back for a couple of weeks to complete the final part of her teacher training.

Trip (in school) During this time of covid regulations, it has been so difficult to find a safe trip out of school which is relevant and meaningful to the work we are focusing on at the moment in class. This is why I decided to book The Makers of History company (which I have used numerous times in both this school and my last school) By not travelling out anywhere, will have the entire day from 9am-3pm and will have a truly fun and meaningful learning experience going back in time to the Roman Empire.

 

 English- We have got very good at using the present perfect tense in our writing this week (have + past tense verb e.g. I have worked very hard this week) through writing a reflective memory of life after the eruption of Vesuvius. We have planned and begun to write our own historical story based on the events.

 Spellings- we will be focusing on words with the prefixes il, im,  un, in, im, dis which all have the meaning ‘not’

Our words this week are: illogical, illegal, illiterate, unkind, unclear, incomplete, incorrect, impolite, disagree, dislike

Please work with your child to ensure he or she understands the meanings of the words and can use them in a sentence as well as being able to spell them. There are different suggestions of activities to do each week to support practising the spellings.

 Reading- We have continued with our ‘Volcanoes’ book and have enjoyed learning more technical language as well as understanding how the layout and features of non-fiction texts support our understanding. Ask your child about pumice, mud flows or pyroclastic currents!!

 

 Maths- we have moved onto finding the area of shapes (using multiplication and division to support us) we will continue this into next week before beginning to look at decimal numbers.

We have had another practise with the Multiplication Tables Check App this week in preparation to have a go at the trial version by the 25th June.

The official Y4 multiplication check has been postponed until next year, however, as a school we have made the decision to trial it for ourselves this year. The game below is almost the same as the format for the multiplication check we will do in June. Please support your child to practise using this at home regularly alongside TTRock Stars

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

This week we will have a go at the official practise site to become familiar with how it works and what we have to do.

 

Science- we recorded the next results of our eggs in different drinks to find out the effects on our teeth. Coke, energy drinks and orange juice were the most damaging and water and milk were the best for keeping our teeth healthy.

We used classification keys to sort out sweets and then mini-beasts into different categories using questions.

 

 RE- Our new RE topic is Judaism.

 

History and Geography- we worked very hard on Tuesday to inquire about the big question: What Legacy was left by the Ancient Greek civilisation? We thought about sub- questions to ask to support our research and used the I-Pads and library books to research Democracy, Olympic Games, Alphabet, Architecture and an area of our own choice.  Did you know the Greeks invented the catapult and the vending machine?!

 

 German- this week we will learn months of the year.

 

 PE- this half term will focus on Athletics and Striking and Batting games (rounders and cricket). It will continue to be on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child wears the Lostock Gralam PE uniform and has long hair tied back and earrings removed or covered please.

Our first Cricket club was very well attended. Please ensure that if your child is attending they wear their PE uniform, not their own clothes during the day and follow the same safety rules of bringing a hair band for long hair and taking earrings out/covering them with tape.

 

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the school office if you want to discuss anything regarding your child.

Creepy Crawly Show

Wow, what a fantastic experience this week when the Creepy Crawly show visited school. All of the children were incredibly brave and they showed our school rules of ready, respectful, safe beautifully.

We loved learning about, looking at and touching a tarantula, 2 species of snake, a cockroach, a gecko, and even a tenrec. That’s a relative of the humble hedgehog!

It was a truly amazing day.

Skylarks W.B. 7.6.21 (After Half Term), by Miss Beattie

Date: 26th May 2021 @ 9:19pm

Hello everyone

Welcome back to our weekly blog 😊 I can’t quite believe we are at the end of another half term in school and what a fantastic half term it has been!

 

Important Reminders:

This Friday 28th May, the photographer is in school. As this is our PE day, please send your child to school in full school uniform with trainers on their feet.

On Tuesday 8th June Skylarks are going on their trip to Tatton Old Hall to find out more about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Please make sure your child is in school promptly on this day. They must wear full school uniform and bring a raincoat with them. They must also bring their lunch in a disposable bag as all rubbish will be thrown away after eating (the children will not be bringing a bag or lunch box with them on the trip).

Please call the school office before half term if you have any questions or queries regarding this trip.

 

Learning after half term:

When we return to school after half term, we will be looking at our new text ‘The Darkest Dark’ by Astronaut Chris Hadfield. We will begin by using clues to predict the text, before using pictures from the book as a stimulus for writing a setting description.

Our reading lessons will also focus on a new text ‘Exploring Space’. We will begin by reading about the International Space Station and thinking about how the text is organised and structured using different features (e.g. headings, subheadings, fact boxes, etc.)

Our space theme will continue in our science lessons where will be exploring our new topic ‘Earth and Space’ in more detail. We will use a model of our solar system to help us understand that it has 8 planets. We will also look at the position of the sun and Earth to help us explain the concept of day and night.

In maths we will continue to develop our understanding of fractions. We will look more in depth at the relationship between fractions and division, and will also order and compare fractions based on their size.

As part of our topic work we will be using our trip to Tatton Old Hall to expand our knowledge and understanding of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking periods. Our topic day when we are back in school will focus on Viking artwork which we will analyse to help us find out more about their identity. We will then use our sketching skills to replicate this style of art.

In RE, we will continue to explore our theme of ‘Forgiveness’. We will listen to The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18:21-28), before looking at modern-day scenarios where would should show mercy to each other.

 

Our PE days for the last summer half term will be Thursday and Friday. Your child should come to school in their PE kit on these days. Please remember PE kits should either be school kits or plain black/blue.

 

Homework

The children should complete page 29 of their maths book to be returned by Friday 11th June. This homework is looking at ordering fractions and the children will need to use their knowledge of finding equivalents to help them.

Remember, if your child is unable to complete their homework at home, Mrs Hulse and I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Wednesday lunchtime so that they can complete it in school. During this lunchtime, any children who may be struggling on a particular question at home can also come to ask an adult for help.

Please encourage your child to read and practice their spellings/times tables in addition to their maths homework.

 

Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 11th June will look at the suffix -ent:

confident, absent, different, patient, magnificent, efficient, decent, intelligent

 

Have a fantastic half term everyone. Remember to show our Christian values in all that you do 😊

Hello everyone

Welcome back to our weekly blog 😊

This week in our Writing lessons, we will be using our carefully thought out plans to write our own narrative based on ‘The Hunter’. I am so excited to read the children’s stories and I know I am going to be super impressed with their use of engaging vocabulary, relative clauses and adverbs for possibility. Why not ask your child what each of these features are?

In maths, we will continue to look at fractions. This week, the children have shown a great understanding of equivalent fractions and converting between improper and mixed number fractions. We will consolidate our understanding of these concepts next week, and will also move on to look at number sequences and comparing/ordering fractions.

In science we will be looking at our new topic ‘Earth and Space’. We will begin by asking questions about the theme, before sharing any prior knowledge we may have.

Our music lesson this week will be very exciting as the children will be using their bows for the first time. The children have shown such a keen interest in our violin and cello lessons this half term and have made great progress so far.

 

Our PE day this half term is Friday. Your child should come to school in their PE kit on this da/y (Cricket will resume on a Thursday after May half term).

 

Homework

The children should complete page 28 this week, to be returned by Friday 28th May. This homework is looking at equivalent fractions which we have been learning about in school this week.

Remember, if your child is unable to complete their homework at home, Mrs Hulse and I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Wednesday lunchtime so that they can complete it in school. During this lunchtime, any children who may be struggling on a particular question at home can also come to ask an adult for help.

Please encourage your child to read and practice their spellings/times tables in addition to their new maths homework.

Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 28th May will be the next 10 words from the Year 5/6 statutory word list:

Existence, explanation, familiar, foreign, forty, frequency, government, guarantee, harass, hindrance, hinderance

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact 😊

21st May 2021

 

Hello Starlings and welcome back to our weekly class blog.

After another fantastic week in Starlings class, we wanted to share what we have learnt this week and what we are looking forward to next week.

 

English

In writing we have completed our writing unit inspired by our class text ‘The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth’. We used the plans we wrote last week to write a story which uses the same structure as our class text, but included our own animals and setting in the story.

Next week we will learn all about poetry and we will be writing our own poems.

Maths

In Maths this week we have been working hard to subtract within 20. We have learned all about crossing tens when subtracting which was quite tricky but we tried hard and think we have cracked it!

Next week we will practise our addition and subtraction facts to 20 and solve some word and picture problems to test out learning!

History

In History this week we continued our learning on inventions and transport. We used ipads to help us to find out more with the use of a “padlet”, it was so much fun! We learned all about different inventions and then we found out about the inventor George Stephenson and made posters to celebrate our learning.

PSHE

In PSHE this week we began our P4C work and discussed some “big questions”. Did you manage to continue the discussion at home? We hope the lovely stickers helped you to do so!

Welcome to Goldfinches’ Weekly Blog

What another hardworking week we have had!

 Star of the week goes to: Isabel C

 Top Table award goes to: Riley

 

This week in worship:

We had a lovely class visit to Church and to meet Vicar Andrew.

We have played a board game to highlight the importance of water and to have an opportunity to enjoy playing with our friends. Our school councillors launched a competition to make a poster about saving water. These can be done at home and are due in on the first Tuesday back after half term.

We have shared some of Mr Cliff’s answers to our ‘Big Questions’ we asked as part of our Ethos work before Easter.

We enjoyed using our first P4C (Philosophy for children) stickers to prompt our discussions. Your child will wear a sticker home every now and again to prompt a family discussion!

Our No Outsiders focus was on including everybody and the special facemasks for people who are deaf.

 

English- We have looked at different tenses, completed a zone of relevance with key vocabulary from the book and recapped using speech punctuation.

 

Spellings- we will be focusing on words with the sion suffix

Words to learn this week:  explosion, television, collision, division, invasion, decision, erosion, confusion, decision, revision.

Please work with your child to ensure he or she understands the meanings of the words and can use them in a sentence as well as being able to spell them. There are different suggestions of activities to do each week to support practising the spellings.

 

Reading- We have explored the layout and organisation of non-fiction books and how they can support our understanding of a topic and this has helped us expand our technical vocabulary. We will continue to use the book to investigate how a volcano is formed, erupts and becomes extinct.

 

Maths- we have been brilliant at use partitioning to support the division of 2-digits by 1-digit and moved on to 3-digit numbers, understanding how a remainder is created. Next week we will link our understanding of multiplication and division to finding the area.

The official Y4 multiplication check has been postponed until next year, however, as a school we have made the decision to trial it for ourselves this year. The game below is almost the same as the format for the multiplication check we will do in June. Please support your child to practise using this at home regularly alongside TTRock Stars

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

This week we will have another go at the official practise site to become familiar with how it works and what we have to do.

 

 Science: this week we have continued about the importance of making healthy snack and drink choices and about how to look for the sugar content on food labels as part of our Change 4 Life focus. We have set off another investigation into the effects of different drinks on eggshells (which are very similar to the enamel of our teeth) and made predictions as to what will happen to the eggs after a week. Next week we will find out what has happened, record our results and learn about tooth care.

 

 RE- we have continued to explore the theme of Discipleship.

 

History and Geography- we have compared and contrasted the similarities and differences of the ancient civilisations to find out what made them some of the world’s greatest civilisations. This week we will begin to discover where Ancient Greece fits in on the timeline and in the world.

 

Art- We have all used the techniques of collage to make a unique sunflower petal to form part of a whole school display. We have also all contributed to a beautiful piece of shared art for the Northwich Arts festival on the theme of ‘Belonging’.

 

Music- we are really working hard in our final few Ukulele lessons.

 

German- this week we learn and practise colours names of the week.

 

PE- this half term will focus on Athletics and Striking and Batting games (rounders and cricket). It will continue to be on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child wears the Lostock Gralam PE uniform and has long hair tied back and earrings removed or covered please.

 

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the school admin email if you wish to discuss anything.

Hello everyone

Robins had a wonderful week last week with lots of outside learning. We even found footage of a sparrow nesting in our bird box that was captured on our new night life camera, it was magical! It was lovely to talk with you all on the phone, thank you for your time. This week, we continue our problem solving in multiplication and division focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. In Writing, we are loving our new wordless book ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. The children are homing their observational skills in on the beautiful illustrations to investigate what is happening on each page and searching for clues to decipher how the character may be feeling. This is a first for us all, a wordless book, who would have thought! 

The children will be using their positional and directional language in Geography as they use the 8 points of the copass to locate places in our school environment. We will conduct a survey of the habitats around us using our statistics knowledge. We will represent the data that we collect in tally and bar charts. We will continue to explore the properties of rocks in our Science learning as well as making observations and notes of how the seeds are developing that we planted last week. 

Our RE learning will focus on passages from the Bible that teach us how Jesus wants us to live our lives. We will focus on The Ten Commandments and relate these to life in modern day. Are the Ten Commandments relavant in our lives? 

I have asked the children to spend five minutes each evening learning the spellings and times tables, they know that this is my request and not yours! Thank you for your continued support with listening to your children read, please may I remind you that this is part of our weekly home work and that three comments in the reading diary, earns the children a raffle ticket, which they are all working towards. 

I am looking forward to another fabulous week together in Robins class. I am always at the end of the phone if you have any questions or queries.

Many thanks

We will be starting a new and exciting text next week. I wonder what it will be…

 

Reading

We continue to read ‘Above and Below’ by Hanako Clulow in our shared reading lesson this week. We used the vocabulary from the text to help us to predict the next habitat. Can you make a prediction while you are reading at home this week? What will happen next? Why do you think that?

Maths 

In Maths this week we have been looking at numbers 11-20. We have focused on representing numbers as 10 and x more (for example 14 = 10 and 4 more). Next week we will be counting one more, one less and comparing and ordering numbers to 20.

Skylarks Blog - WB 26.04.21, by Miss Beattie

Date: 22nd Apr 2021 @ 2:10pm

Hello everyone and welcome back to Skylarks weekly blog 😊

I hope you all had a wonderful half term. It was lovely to speak to so many of you today during our parents evening phone calls. If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in contact. 

The children have had a super week back in school. I have particularly loved their enthusiasm for our new Writing topic based on the book ‘The Hunter’ by Paul Geraghty. 

 

Next week in our Writing lessons, we will have three areas of focus: using inverted commas to punctuate speech, adverbs for possibility and relative clauses to add extra detail. We will apply this knowledge in a conversation between two characters (Jamina and Grandfather), as well as in a first-person recount of Jamina approaching the baby elephant.

In maths we will continue to look at long multiplication. We will extend our knowledge of this method to look at multiplying 3 and 4 digit numbers by a 2-digit number. 

From next week, we will be having a ‘topic day’ in Skylarks Class. This will be 1 day each week where we will focus solely on history and geography. This week we will be recapping 6 figure grid reference, as well as human and physical features. We will identify the different features in our school ground and draw our own sketch map using grid references to the location of each feature. In the afternoon, we will compare the human and physical features of Lostock Gralam and Llandudno. 

As I’m sure you are aware, the children in Skylarks Class have started their music lessons this week. The children have been allocated their violin or cello and I can’t wait to see and hear them improve and grow in confidence over the coming weeks. 

Our PE day this half term is Friday. Your child should come to school in their PE kit on this day (Cricket will resume on a Thursday after May half term).

 

Homework 

Maths homework will resume this week, which children should complete and mark at home before returning it to school on Friday.

Remember, if your child is unable to complete their homework at home, Mrs Hulse and I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Wednesday lunchtime so that they can complete it in school. During this lunchtime, any children who may be struggling on a particular question at home can also come to ask an adult for help. 

The children should complete page 24 this week, to be returned by Friday 30th April.  

Please encourage your child to read and practice their spellings/times tables in addition to their new maths homework. 

 

Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 30th April will focus on words with the silent letter ‘t’.

nestle, wrestle, thistle, jostle, whistle, Christmas, listener, glistening

 

Have a lovely weekend everyone!😊

Hi everyone

We have made it to the final week of the term with huge smiles as we are so happy to be back together. smiley

The children have been busy with assessments and have made me so proud with their attitude towards these. 

We are continuing to enjoy The Sea Book by Charlotte Milner as a stimulus in our reading lessons. The children are using the contents and index pages to navigate the text, making predictions and summarising key points of paragraphs. This book is also helping us to take care of God's oceans and the creatures that live in them by considering how we can reduce the amout of plastic that sadly ends up there. 

This week we will be wriitng a letter from one character to another in our Seal Surfer story. We will take on the roke of the boy in the story and write to Grandad, telling him of our adventures witht he seals in his absence. 

Our spellings this week contain the letters 'ch' but make the 'c' sound

chaos, chorus, mechanic, character, anchor, echo, aching, chemist, schemed

In Maths we continue our work on multiplication and division exploring the patterns and connections of the 4 and 8 times tables. 

We are thoroughly looking forward to visiting church on Wednesday to watch a pre recorded Easter worship by Mr Cliff.

Lostock are celebrating World Book Day on Thursday. The children can come to school wearing their pajamas ready for a wonderful day of story. 

We are so proud of our class for the happiness and joy that they bring with them each day.

Have a great week. Please contact me if you have any questions or queries.

Many thanks

Mrs Rice and Mrs Brennan.
