Dear Parents

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at our class pages. Here you will be able to find useful links and get an insight into what your child is learning about in school.

Attached are links to your child's homework and a context web, which breaks down what your child will be learning about in each area of the curriculum.

Photos will also be posted on here, with different activities that your child has been participating in during the week.

Any letters that go out from the Year group will also appear on this page, so keep checking!

Thank you for looking and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to discuss them with your child's teacher, or a member of our team.

On Wednesday 7th November, we were treated to an energetic Diwali workshop led by a talented West End Choreographer! The children were taught dance movements inspired by Indian culture, set against modern Bollywood music.  Important cross-cultural concepts  were grasped by the children as they used their imaginations and embodied various character roles through their dance.  The grand finale was a culmination of all the moves to retell the epic Diwali story of Rama and Sita. The workshop was a resounding success enjoyed by all, and it was a pleasure to see the children embracing other cultures. We would like to wish all our Hindu parents and students a Happy Diwali!

Jade Class Assembly on Eating & Digestion

How the Digestive System works!

In Science, we are learning about the 'Digestive System'. Using biscuits, water, orange juice, tights and a cup, Emerald Class investigated how food travels from the mouth and leaves the body as waste.

 

First, we crushed biscuits and added to a bag (stomach).

 

Next, we poured water (saliva) and orange juice (acid) into the bag to show how the food breaks up within the stomach walls. We squashed the bag to imitate the stomach walls churning the food. 

 

After that, we poured the mixture into a pair of tights (small intestine) and squeezed the water out. The liquid that left the tights shows the nutrients entering the blood stream of the body. Anything left over in the tights was transferred into a cup (large intestine) and pushed out through a hole in the cup (anus) as waste! 

 

What a fun and exciting way to learn about the digestive system! Have a look at our photos to see if you can explain each part of the experiment.

In Art, we are learning about Guiseppe Arcimboldo, a 16th century artist who was well-known for his imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. Using the fruit and vegetables from our greenhouse, the children had a play with assembling fruit and vegetables to make a face. Over the next couple of weeks, we will attempt to paint portraits in the style of Guiseppe Arcimboldo, so watch this space!
