Elf Road Story Mapping 15.09.21
In Literacy learning, we have been busy immersing ourselves into our Portal Story "Elf road". The children have come up with excellent ideas for our class story map. This story map will help them to remember the structure of the story as well as key grammatical features that they will be able to use in their own texts in the coming weeks.
Our first PE session of the new academic year and the children have dived in with great enthusiasm. Children have been busy creating and perfecting their DPA (Daily Physical Activity) dance routine ready to share with the rest of Lady Seaward's School. We can't wait to teach it to all the other year groups. Well done Pyrenees Class!
Welcome back to the pupils and families of Pyrenees class. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our first day back of the Autumn term. As you can see the children have been hard at work in Maths already but who says learning can't be fun?!
DT - using tools and equipment safely
PSHE - design a radio talk show to discuss and solve friendship problems
Hinduism - beginning to explore our understanding of how Hindus live their lives
Summer class newsletter
This half term, Pyrenees class have been super enthusiastic learners! In English, we have been learning about discussion texts, which culminated in a stunning final written piece about the advantages and drawbacks of magical powers! In maths, we have been revisiting our understanding of Place Value to ensure we have fully mastered all concepts. Our scientific inquiry has allowed to explore circuits - we will be continuing this learning after half term as the children have really enjoyed the practical activities! Religious Education has been fascinating as we have been discussing the balance of faith and science - do the two conflict or complement each other? The children have been really respectful of each other's beliefs and shared opinions in a really mature way. We were even lucky enough to meet Dr Jennifer Wiseman - an astrophysicist for NASA who kindly met us over zoom to talk about her two passions - Science and Christianity!
I hope you all have a VERY well-earned rest over the Easter holidays!

Class 4 Virtual Tour
The children have been deepening their understanding of the experiences of children who were evacuated during the Second World War by analysing a range of historical sources. We examined different memoirs of actual evacuation children which gave us an insight into their experiences. We identified that it was a tremendously difficult time for all of the children. From our role play sessions we shared with each other our character’s viewpoints with some of the extracts showing us that evacuees found the experience enjoyable and exciting whilst some were treated unfairly and found it distressing.Within our scientific learning we have been drawing our study of light to a close with the children carrying out investigations examining refraction showing how the light spectrum is formed. We have also been investigating how reflection is used to support everyday activities, recently looking at how Concave and Convex mirrors produce different representations of images, with pupils being able to communicate their understanding of the scientific principles which govern this.
Art inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat
Class 4 studied the late artist and emulated his style with their own pieces of oil pastel art. They thought of powerful and positive messages to promote equality among all human beings :)

Healthy Eating Day
In the afternoon, Class 3 & 4 got together to learn about the importance of exercise on the body. They then tested their memory skills with a series of pictures, exploring how many they could remember in 20 seconds. They also learnt how to time their pulse. After this, they went outside and completed a series of group exercises to raise their heart beat. When back indoors, the children then experimented to see whether their memory skills had improved. This did in fact work, with many children doubling their previous scores, proving that exercise always has a positive effect on our memory and learning skills.
We then welcomed Mrs Esson into our school who kindly delivered a talk on the importance of healthy eating and keeping our teeth and gums clean. The children were asked to chew a plaque tablet to highlight any plaque that may be on their teeth and then were taught the techniques of brushing key areas in our mouth. The children were all provided with a new toothbrush and toothpaste.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Tyrell and Mrs Esson for their fantastic lessons which the children all enjoyed.
