Projects:

If you have been eager beavers and have nearly finished the packs which we sent home, maybe you could have a go at producing a 'Project on a Page!'

These look absolutely amazing and you could base them around any theme that you would like to! Adding pictures and lots of colour make them really interesting to look at too! You could spend the start of the week planning, researching and gathering all the information you need and then then create your wonderful project at the end of the week. 

Here is an example:


 

 

 

Some themes you could write about are:

English: Your favourite author and their books with book reviews, find an image and write poems based on it or create your own character and create a whole life for them

Maths: As much as you can remember about fractions, percentages or each method

Science: Materials and their Properties, Forces or Earth and Space

History: Ancient Greeks or Stone Age 

Geography: Marvellous Map Skills, Fairtrade 

Art: Choose your favourite artist and try and recreate some of their artwork

 

Have fun creating all these! We cannot wait to see them all when we return to school!

See you soon Dumbledore Class!

There are also a lot of free online resources which you can access at home.

Important information about us!

Homework:

Homework is given to children at the beginning of the half term. They will have various tasks to fill in. This should be completed by the end of the half term. 

 

Reading Challenge:

Each term, we are holding a Reading Challenge in Dumbledore Class.

Each time you read at home, either with an adult or by yourself, write it in your reading record and every time a comment has been written in, you get one raffle ticket in the pot!

Reading Records need to be in school every day if possible so that Mrs Baker and Miss Foster can check that you have got all of your raffle tickets and so that books can be changed on a weekly basis as well!

By the end of the term, one ticket will be pulled out of the pot and that child will win a very special prize for their hard work to improve their reading!

Good luck everyone!

 

Mathletics 

Children can access these websites from home, each child has an individual username and password that will be sent home with them.

Mathletics is an excellent resource which allows children to practise their mathematics skills.

We then completed a maths activity linked to co-ordinates on the Marauder's Map. Finally, we completed an Art activity linked to the wonderful scenery of Hogwarts.

A fantastic World Book Day Dumbledore Class! Well done!

In Geography this half term, we have been looking 'How could we get around if technology didn't exist?'. Today, we went on the playground and looked at 4 figure grid references. We had a map of the school and list of different grid references. We used the references and map to find the different letters that were around the school. We had to collect 8 letters in total, the word spelt DISCOVER!

On Monday 3rd February 2020 we had our Reading Cafe Inspire Session, we completed a variety of different activities.

Sarehole Mill

On Friday 5th April, we went to Sarehole Mill in Hall Green. We took part in lots of activities linked to our topic of Stone Age and learnt lot of facts.

Wind dispersal

In Science we have been looking at how insects pollinate plants in different ways. To show how wind dispersal happens we used Cheesy puffs in a bag and put our hands in the bag. We had orange all on our hands then we moved to each table and put our hands in that bag. Each time we got more orange on our hands and this is what happens when bee's drop pollen off at each plant. 

Water resistance challenge

In Science, Miss Willetts set us a challenge to find out the best design for a boat. We researched what a good boat needs, for example it needs to be streamline, then we made boats in teams and raced them! We had super fun and 'Bob' the boat won the race!

English Inspire session

We were very lucky to have so many parents join us in English on Wednesday 30th January!

We had fun discussing opinions and deciding through a conscious alley, whether Jim in Street Child should stay or leave the workhouse.

Parachute making!

In Science we are learning all about forces. This week we have investigated air resistance because a parachute company asked for our help to design a super parachute. We had to test different materials and discussed how to keep it a fair test.

Crazy caves!!

As part of our topic lessons we have started making our own Stone Age caves!

Stone Age Hook day!

On Tuesday 15th January, we had our new topic hook day. As you can see we all had a great day and are very excited about what we are going to learn this term!
