This morning we have been looking at volume and capacity. We have been pouring amounts and reading the scales using millilitres and litres.
This week in English we have had a stand alone topic day. This day gives us the opportunity to showcase everything that we have learnt so far this year. We began by looking at the features of a mystery story such as the setting, suspects and victim then we were given a brown envelope with pieces of evidence found at the crime scene. We had to use the evidence to plan and write about a mystery that had taken place. This was a really fun lesson and we came up with some wild mysteries!
Today we celebrated World Book Day in school. We each came to school dressed as one of our favourite book characters. We went to a class in KS1 and shared stories with the younger children before coming back to class and completing some fun activities. We followed a step by step video to make an origami bookmark which we really enjoyed.
This half term we have been looking at electricity. We have had lots of opportunities to create a variety of different circuits and change the components in the circuit to see the effects.
Today we went on a visit to Blackpool Zoo. As part of our science topic, we have been learning about adaptation. It was great to see some of the animals and how they have adapted over time.
In French this half term we have been learning about the weather. We played a fantastic game where we had to dress for the weather and others in the class had to use their french knowledge to guess and correctly say what the weather was.
We had had lots of opportunities to look at artwork by L S Lowry. We have had a go at creating some of our own inspired by his work. We have also been making origami animals following step by step tutorials in RE.
Some very kind volunteers from the RNLI came to speak to us today about water safety and the work that they do. We were all given a booklet that we were able to take home to share with our families to ensure we all keep safe in and around water.
This half term, the children in Ospreys have been using a new software to develop 2d vectors. They learnt the key skills over the first few weeks then were able to create animals using the skills they had learnt.
“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us”. This week every child in school has been thinking about this quote and what it means to them. Thinking specifically about equality and diversity. The children have created some fantastic pieces of artwork independently to show what the quote means to them. The teachers of Frenchwood are so proud of some of the conversations that have been had in school as well as the amazing artwork produced.
