Weekly News 21.05.21
This week, the children have worked really hard. In Topic, they enjoyed the final activities of learning about Hiroshige. They spent time drawing a range of animals and plants, focussing on their skills and concentrating on what they can see (not what they THINK they can see). We linked this to our text, Kensuke's Kingdom. The children have now learnt that Kensuke liked painting on shells - the only resource he had to hand whilst on the island - and we tried that too, connecting Hiroshige's style and the class text!
In Maths, we have studied different ways to move shapes across co-ordinates, focussing this week on translation and reflection. Next week, we will look at rotation!
Today, your child should have brought home a slip that has asked for the size that you would like for our Leavers T-shirts. Please can you return them no later than Tuesday 25th May.
Your Love to Learn task this week is a competition from Miss Keam:
Home Learning - HEROES Stamp design competition!
For more than 50 years Royal Mail’s Special Stamp programme has commemorated British history and achievement. Stamps have also been issued to honour the achievements of many British people. Often, the people who appear on stamps are already famous.
Since the coronavirus pandemic began, there have been many people who have done great things. Many of them are not famous, but they have done extraordinary work. These are the people who have helped us all through a really difficult time. Some are frontline workers in healthcare, volunteers and others look after elderly or vulnerable people.
We think that what these people have done makes them heroes, so Royal Mail wants to honour them by producing a set of eight stamps.
The stamps will feature designs created by eight school-aged children. We are asking our young designers to think about who their hero or heroes are, and to then design a stamp in their honour. A special panel of judges will pick the winning designs. The final eight stamps will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen before they can be printed and issued.
All children should have received a template for the design. Please hand in to teachers on or before Tuesday 25th May.
Please read the terms and conditions attached at the bottom of this page. There is also a template attached, if needed. Good Luck!
