In our final STEM session of the week, we have been discovering the effect of forced perspective – a technical effect which makes objects appear larger, smaller, farther or closer than they actually are. We discussed how it has been used in films and even had a go ourselves!
The children have been enjoying all the different STEM activities so far this week. A favourite was the task of using animation software to create stop-motion animation.
The children have been enjoying investigating and exploring different activities this week linked to science, maths and computing.
This week in English, we have been learning the features of limericks. We created our own spooky, halloween themed limericks and shared them with the class.
Book Exchange returns next week! Years 4-6 will be in Monday afternoon and EYFS up to Year 3 will be on Wednesday. Children need to bring in a book, leave it in their bag and then when called they will have the chance to go to the dining room and exchange for a new one! Simple!
On Sunday 6th October , over 80 pupils and parents took part in the 1k, 3k, 5k or 10k runs around Abbots Langley. It was an amazing turn out and fabulous to see so many green shirts! We have, for the 3rd year running, won the ‘best attendance’ trophy so well done to all of those who took part. Look at our fabulous Tanners team!
Today in maths, we have been using our resources (and number bonds) to add 3-digit numbers to ones using regrouping.
For example: 137 + 6 =
We would regroup 6 as 3 + 3 and therefore create the new calculation: 140 + 3 = 143
Last week in PE, we explored travelling along different shaped pathways. We worked in groups to create a sequence of movements and included some group balances.
This afternoon, Larch Class learnt about the artist Van Gogh. We learnt that he painted portraits and landscapes in a style called Post-Impressionism. Look out for our new art display around school!
The children have planned twelve business ideas for the school fair on Sunday, 30th June. Come along and try their ideas.
