Shark class work very hard whilst embracing ISP christian values and enjoying learning.
Take a look at what we have been up to this year....
During Spring Term, Shark class have based their learning around their new topic of 'The Victorians'.
As part of our English topic 'The Hobbit', the children worked very creatively to design and mould their own dragon eyes out of clay.
In English this term, Shark Class have been using The Hobbit as a stimulus for their English work. The children have used the novel to examine the language choices used and compared it to more current choices in the graphic novel of the story. They have also turned parts of the story into a 'Tolkien style' narrative poem and written a newspaper report. To write their newspaper article, the children interviewed each other in character as Bilbo, the dwarves and Gandalf.
Through the whole of Autumn term, Shark Class have based their all of their learning on our class topic: Arctic Animals. The children loved learning about arctic animals, their habitats and the impact of pollution upon their lives.
In English, Shark Class linked all of their learning to their class novel, Brightstorm. The children created their own explorer's scrapbook as if they were going on a polar expedition; writing letters of application; a ship's log entry and and diary entries for their journey. The children also enjoyed interacting with the author of Brightstorm, Vashti Hardy, who sent them a lovely signed postcard and was always full of excitement and praise for their work around her book.
In Maths, Shark Class are enjoying using Times Table Rockstars to support their times table knowledge, both at home and at school.
In RE this year, we have covered the following units: Salvation, Incarnation and The Gospel.
Whilst learning about the Gospel, the children explored The Sermon on the Mount and discussed what Jesus would do. The children also explored foundations for Christian Living.
In RE during this term, we have enjoyed learning all about The Old Testament with Mark from Bible Explorers.
His sessions were creative and great fun!
