Maths Challenge Morning at Warden Park Academy

Maths Challenge Morning at Warden Park Academy 1 A big thank you to parents for your support.

In Science we learnt about the differences between selective and cross-breeding. This led to a discussion and reflection on the merits of cloning humans. We voted against it in our class poll.

Sharing Adventure Week stories with our friends

PGL quote of the week, 'It has been an inspiration and has made me a better person as I've overcome so many fears.'

Tuesday 15th 9am:

Had a great day yesterday! Favourites went between the giant swing and the raft building. Everyone enjoyed getting wet! Lots of great pictures to follow when we get back! Lunch was pizza which went down really well.

 

We had aeroball (think netball with a trampoline!) and challenge course in the afternoon before a big dinner and campfire in the evening.

 

All children were shattered by bedtime and slept well.

 

This morning we’re abseiling and doing some archery. Everyone’s excited about the disco tonight.

Laurel residential:

Monday 15th 9am

We had a good first night playing Ambush. The class mostly slept... at least a few hours and we’re excited about the morning’s activities of raft building and giant swing before eating pizza for lunch! 

Beowulf Story Time! We have worked really hard producing sophisticated writing based on the oldest poem known from Anglo-Saxon culture. We sat in the place of ancient story-tellers and shared the writing of which we were most proud.

We made Anglo-Saxon Brooches. We looked at authentic artefacts and were inspired to make our own!

It's been a stunning start!

 

Here are some pictures from our Anglo-Saxon day: the question is, what did we learn about them?

 Welcome Back Lovely Laurel Class

 

It's so lovely getting to know you!

 

We hope you had a restful, peaceful and relaxing summer. Now is the time to surge into action with our first topic: the mighty Raid, Trade and Invade! We will be learning about the great influence of overseas settlers on this country through our exploration of the life, work, art and stories of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings up to the Norman Invasion. We will begin with a stunning start day and deepen our learning via explorations of the epic poem Beowulf. This and other texts will form the backbone for our English writing this term. We will touch on archaeological sciences through an investigation into why some materials survive over centuries whilst others degrade.

In Science we will explore ideas and concepts linked to theories of evolution and Computing will take us on a voyage into programming.

A highlight will be our residential visit and please see me if there is anything I can do to help this be an even richer and happier time for your child.

 

Weekly homework is given out on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. It will usually involve further Maths practice and English grammar, spelling or punctuation work. Keeping reading is an absolute priority and, if can, try to take fifteen minutes three times a week listening to your child read (or reading with them) and asking them questions about the text you are sharing.  A topic homework list will be attached soon.

PE this term will usually take place on Mondays and Fridays, so please make sure that PE kit is in school for these days but ideally all weekdays.


If you have any questions about this term's work, please don't hesitate to ask. We'll always be around to support you and your children but if it's a matter requiring detailed conversation please make an appointment via the School Office or with me at the end of the school day.

 

Here's to a great term!

Mr Holmes & Mrs Henderson
