Friday Afternoon 

 

You might have noticed that the Anglo-Saxons were fairly self-sufficient and people in the villages took on different job roles such as being; farmers, blacksmiths, weavers, carpenters, potters and bread bakers etc.  There was much textile production and work with leather too.  Could you research one of these skills carried out by the Anglo-Saxons.  Children in the past have also enjoyed having a go at one of these activities.

  • Growing plants/Looking after animals
  • Working with metal, leather and wood.
  • Weaving, dyeing, felting, sewing etc
  • Pottery
  • Baking etc

 

Last year this was set as a mini topic over half-term.  You could spend an hour or several looking into one of these areas if it interests you...or not at all.  There is no pressure to complete any of the work.  Look after yourselves and have a great half-term.

Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to announce a Lincolnshire School Games Virtual Event: ‘Primary Athletics – Home Pentathlon’ This is available, free of charge, for all children in all Primary Schools. 

For this competition the children will need to complete the 5 athletics events, keeping a record of their best scores on their score sheet (this is also in the attached document). To enter the event they will need to click on the entry form link in the document; click here to see the form or use this link https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=4I_ewOP1L06Lz_HFSzjyi-eZLGK4191Mryh5rjGLpLNUNENTVEFSWUVYV1NLSzJUVUhGVDlNNkM2MSQlQCN0PWcu. From here you will need to input some information then attach a link to their score sheet.  Our school games organiser is MATT EVANS - LINCS CENTRAL.  The information will go to the school games organisers who will keep track of entries and scores.  Your child's entries do not need to be published on social media, but if you choose to please ensure a parent posts on their behalf.  There is more safeguarding advice in the attachment 

They have until the end of next week to submit their content before moving on to the next event in the series. A selection of the best entries in my area will go up against those selected by the other 7 School Games Organisers towards a county final event.

I really hope you can get behind this and keep our young people in some sort of sporting competition during this unprecedented time.

 

Good luck

 

Mr Hickerton

Welcome to Maple Class! (Year 4)

In our class you will see fun learning happening at all levels. Our cross-curricular approach ensures that skills in core subjects like Maths and English might be applied in other subject areas. Topics build on previous knowledge the children have experienced in year groups lower down the school and teach the skills of deeper research in a broad range of subject areas. Our curriculum overview and coverage, along with welcome letter, are attached as documents below. Also included is one of our first knowledge organisers for history which includes all key information for our Victorian study.

Autumn Term 2019
Our Autumn term topic is entitled ‘Victoriana.’ Here we share the life of children in our country 150 years ago and look into how the changes came about in order to appreciate what is provided for us all today. It includes a class visit to a coal mine to experience working life for families during the era. A case study of Queen Victoria is undertaken and children question, investigate and formulate opinions, based on research, about this monarch that led the British country and empire towards significant changes.  We also consider our current rights and responsibilities at school and at home.  Linked also with the great inventions of the 19th century, Class 4 will carry out investigations into changing sounds, particularly in relation to wind and string instruments. There will also be much philosophical thought underpinning our work and many more exciting threads to our challenge question!!!

STREET CHILD - In literacy we have interrogated the text and used a variety of drama techniques to help us understand the action and the thoughts/feelings of characters as well as their motivations.  This has really helped us when we have written recounts, playscripts and list poems.

Spring Term 2020

Spring Term

Our Spring Term has certainly seen our classroom transformed once more with vibrant burst of colour as we compare and contrast life in Navenby to a village in India, Chembakoli.  Whilst tackling location and climate, we will also be unpicking the processes at work in the water cycle, creating explanatory text to show our understanding. This learning will be enhance be further investigation into the nature of solids, liquids and gases!  Our India topic is also centred round respecting and celebrating differences as we investigate the beliefs and practises of the Hindu Faith, decorating our own classroom shrine with images of Hindu Gods and artefacts.  The walls will also be adorned with the steps towards successfully designing Indian Block Print Cushions and the creation of Indian Music Samples as we explore Rag, Tala and Drone!!  We looked forward to visit from a range of people in our community to support our learning such as a local gardener explaining how to grow our own herbs, Sunita Patel returning with the Indian Experience, a Dental Practitioner advising us on tooth care and a number of local authors discussing the writing process during World Book Week.  Plenty to look forward to!
