The Queen has a orangutan!

This week in English we started a new book ‘The Queen’s Orangutan’ by David Walliams. We have loved hearing all about the orangutans naughty adventures in the palace and destruction that he caused!

As part of the unit of work we have been focusing on how to use conjunctions to join two sentences together. Children have been using if, but and so. They have all thought of their own animal for the Queen to have and what that animal will do to help her. They will be continuing with their stories next week.

In Maths we have been learning to tell the time using o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We have been working really practically to show the time as well as telling the times on clocks in Maths books. Please can you continue to support you child with telling the time at home to further embed what they have already learnt. Next week we will be going back to multiplication and solving multiplications using arrays.

We have also started a new unit of topic work on artists. As a year group the children decided that they would like to do some work on different artists and techniques. We have looked at the work by Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, Georges Seurat and Pablo Picaso.

In PE we have been learning all about techniques for running, running in lanes and looking forwards. Next week we are going to be starting field event which include long jump, sitting ball throw, javelin and standing high jump. Don’t forget sports day is on Monday 21st May at 9:30am.
