Pickmere have had great fun measuring and calculating areas and perimeters of our outdoor areas.

 

In practical maths, children have been working together, in small groups, to measure various outdoor areas. I think a firm favourite was measuring the chicken coup – even the chickens seemed to have enjoyed this! We took our measurements back to the classroom and worked independently to calculate the area and perimeters.

 

In Science we have started looking at living things and their habitats. This week we recapped on our learning lower down the school and labelled some of the key parts of a flower. We extended our knowledge and understanding by discussing how living things can reproduce. We discussed sexual and asexual reproduction and related this to flowers and potatoes! We once again took our learning outside of the classroom and dissected some flowers. Children were thrilled when they sliced open the flowers ovary and managed to find the ovules!

 

 

 In RE, we have continued to look into the Islamic religion. Children have really embraced themselves in learning about Islamic traditions and there have many in-depth discussions regarding how similar (and different) some viewpoints are compared to Christianity.  We have just a couple more lessons based on Islam before focusing on Easter.

 

Last Friday, children were awarded with their Discover Level Arts Award. They have a fantastic certificate, and this should have been brought home last week. Please check your child’s bag if you are yet to see this.

 

Finally, a big thank you to all parents and guardians that have taken the time out of their busy schedules to come in for parents evening. It has been fantastic to have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and next steps with you.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone in their World Book Day outfits tomorrow – Mrs Evans and I have got ours ready!
