Just like that, we are now two weeks away from the end of the school year. It certainly has been another unique year, but it has flown by so quickly! Mrs Hutton, Mrs Bird and I would like to thank each and every one of you for your patience, support, hard work and good spirits throughout this year. We are really proud of you all!
We are exceptionally proud of how you have adapted between in school learning, home learning and then back to in school learning again. You have been amazing and having you back in school this term has been so much fun. We’ve certainly had a few giggles along the way. Normally to do with my reading of our class novel.
We will be starting to send home the children’s work from this year. It would be greatly appreciated if you could put some carrier bags inside your child’s school bag for them to take home their work and belongings. You can then leave the items in the carrier bags for 72 hours before looking at it.
To finish off our project, we are going to be looking at the flags of the Caribbean countries. We will be exploring their designs to establish where they came from and what they represent. We will also be concluding our own personal research questions.
Over the next two weeks, we will be using the sports and hobbies vocabulary that we have been learning to create short conversations. These will focus on saying which sports we like, we really enjoy and those we don’t like as much.
Our final maths topic is 3D shape. We will be looking at 3D nets, naming shapes and thinking about how they are constructed. There will be a design challenge coming where we need to use the shape nets that we have been learning about.
Throughout this session, Mrs Gatherum has been working with the class every Tuesday, focusing on Art. Below is a selection of what they have been doing this term. The artwork has centred around our Oceans and Caribbean project.
The children used sharpies, pastels and gold foil paper to create a scene of a Caribbean island.
View Finder Activity
The children used a view finder to select part of a given picture. They then created a black and white frame to go around their picture.
In the Ocean
The children had to pick something that lives in the ocean and create it using black and white patterns. For the background, they created patterns in white pastels before putting a wash paint on top to create a moving Ocean.
We still have two weeks to go, which, I’m sure, will fly in. We hope that you have a fantastic holiday, when it comes. To our P7’s, we are going to miss you next year! We wish you all the best at Mearns Academy and we can’t wait to hear all about your 3 day visit, next week.
Take care and stay safe,
Mrs Hutton, Mrs Bird and Mrs Fish
