Mrs Possnett and Mrs Peters are enjoying working with their shiny, bright new Nightingale Class this year.
We are a mixed Year 4 and Year 5 class and are very lucky to be supported in our learning this year by Mrs Moss, Miss Walker and Miss Walsham.
For the past two weeks, we have been carrying out an experiment to see what happens when eggs are immersed in different liquids: water, milk, orange juice, Coke and vinegar. We were trying to answer the question: how do different liquids affect our tooth enamel? Have a look at our photos to see how the eggs looked after two weeks. Can you remember our conclusion, Nightingales?
We welcomed the class back on Thursday 3rd September and it was so wonderful to see your smiling faces and children all happy to be back in school with their teachers and friends, and ready for an activity- (and hopefully fun-) filled year! We played lots of "Getting to Know You" games and learned our new class rules. Remember: always show respect, always try your best and always tell the truth. Our normal class timetable starts on Monday 7th September. Don't forget P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays so don't forget your kit!
We always have fun in Nightingale class and we suspect that everyone will be even more enthusiastic and eager to learn after the strange time we all had last year. We can't wait to get started!
Our class novel is C.S. Lewis' second Chronicle of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. This story is about something that happened to them when they were sent away from London during the war because of the air-raids.
Many of you may already know the story or have watched the film? We will be reading the book and watching the film to explore, discuss and write about the settings, the characters, the messages and also just to enjoy a really good story!
In Mathematics, we will be following the White Rose programme of study, beginning with Number and Place Value. Remember to practice your multiplication tables at home because knowing them
really helps with all four maths operations.
How many breathtaking beasts did you manage to think of over the summer, and did you decide whether they could be real, fictional or both? We'll be imagining and designing our own beasts in English, D.T. and Art.
In Science, tying in with our beasts theme, we will be investigating living things by grouping them according to their features. We'll learn about different life cycles and how some plants and animals reproduce themselves. We'll explore food chains, working out who are the predators and who are the prey! We'll also consider habitats and the environment and how, when these change, there are often threats to the living things inhabiting them.
Nightingales will be working with Mr Strange on Tuesdays and Mrs Peters on Thursdays. We will be making sure that we are all looking after both our physical and mental well-being to keep our bodies and minds fit and healthy.
Please come to school in your P.E. kits on these days, along with your school jumper or cardigan.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
