We had fun decorating our eggs for the Key Stage 2 competition and are very proud of our creations!
We have been using the chime bars to play and perform music written on stave notation. Listen to our first performance below!
Tuner Art Work
Whilst studying tourist attractions in Kent, we focused on the Turner Gallery in Margate and used watercolours to create our own artwork in the style of Turner.
The Shape of the UK Topic
To finish off our topic on The Shape of the UK, we have created persuasive writing to answer the question ‘What attracts tourists to the UK?’
We have been composing our own melodies using chime bars. Later this term, we will be writing these as stave notation and performing them to each other.
Why do we live here? We live in the county of Kent – the garden of England, home to Charles Dickens and the main area for growing hazelnuts in the UK! The first ever James Bond book was written down the road in St. Margarets and we are the gateway to Europe being just 21 miles away from Calais in France. Where do other people live? Do you know anything about the other counties of the UK or how our country is divided up? As developing geographers, we will consider the shape of the UK as we travel from South further North. Along the way, we will practice our skills in map reading through the use of OS maps, Google Earth and atlases. You will be so inspired by the wonderful and diverse shape of the UK you will want to discover so many of these extraordinary places in the future.
We began our studies of the UK by focusing on Kent. We have looked up the many tourist attractions in our county and have also considered why Kent is so important for tourism in the UK. We have mapped the tourist attractions of Kent onto maps.
World Book Day
We also got ourselves dressed up for World Book Day. We had a great time in the parade and enjoyed looking at everyone else’s outfits. Well done to Archie who was our class winner!
We have used fraction circles to compare and order fractions.
