Lower KS2 classes were all mixed up last week! Each new mixed class spent an afternoon learning something out of the ordinary!
Here’s a few from the afternoon in 4 Blyton, where the children learnt to speak German! We learnt to greet each other and answer questions and then we made posters showing die Tiere (animals!).
To finish off the afternoon we sang Onkel Fritz hat einen Zoo. Do you recognise the song?
When 4Blyton were reunited they were excited to tell each other what they had learned in their mixed classes.
Band Time this week was so exciting!
We began by playing lots of games, drawing on our skills in counting, pitch, rhythm and memory.
Then we practised our embouchure!
Here are our trumpeters…
…our trombone players…
…and our French horn, flugel horn, baritone and tuba players!
And here they are playing together!
This week in maths the children investigated what year 4 children like the most.
After choosing a category, the children collected their data in a tally chart and then calculated the frequency.
Using their frequency chart, the children plotted their data on a bar graph.
Next we learnt to interpret our bar graph and draw conclusions.
This week in literacy, the children have thought carefully about what it might have been like to live in the WWI trenches. In role as a soldier, we wrote letters home to our families.
