Take a look at all of our wonderful work and find out what all the BUZZ is about!
We hope everyone had a relaxing Easter break.
In the summer months we have got so much learning to get through!
In maths, we will be learning how to tell the time and how to answer time interval problems. We will also be solving problems based around money.
In English, we will be writing our own adventurous quest stories and reading more incredible life stories from Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.
In RE, we are studying Islam and we are taking a trip to a local mosque on Thursday 3rd of May. More information about this trip will be distributed soon!
In Science, we are classifying animals based on their features. We will be studying the different habitats animals live in.
In Topic, we will be continuing with Manchester. We will be studying the life and work of LS Lowry. After this, we will be learning all about the almighty Romans!
In music, we will be receiving singing lessons from Miss Platt from Droylsden Academy.
In PE, with Mr Ellis, we are doing tennis!
We will be having French and computing lessons from our new PPA teacher Mrs Buckley.
We look forward to a fun filled summer term with lots of new learning opportunities!
Rock Around the Clock!
This half term we are learning to tell the time on analogue and digital clocks. We will also be learning how to read train and bus timetables. These are key skills in life and it is really important for children to try and wear a watch to school.
Click on the links below to play some time games:
Can you read the time on these clocks?
Looking at the clocks, do you know what time it will be in three hours?
What time was it 15 minutes ago?
We have been celebrating VOTE 100!
2018 is a very important year in British History. It marks 100 years since new laws were brought in so that some women could vote. In 1928, another law was passed so that every woman could vote in the general election.
Lots of women worked hard and fought for the right to vote, the right to have a good education and for the right to work. One of those women was Emmeline Pankhurst. She was from Manchester-our home city!
Our class have been learning about Emmeline's life, her beliefs and we have written some powerful speeches about equality.
We Love Manchester
This term our topic is MANCHESTER! A city that we all call home. So far, using our Geography skills, we have looked at where Manchester is on a map of the United Kingdom and we have looked at the boroughs that make up Greater Manchester! We have learnt about the industrial revolution in History and how the population boom, new factories and better transport made Manchester into the buzzing city it is today. We have looked at weather graphs and tried to find out why Manchester is so grey and rainy. There is lots more excellent learning to come! :-)
