Busy, Busy, Busy!

We have have had a jam packed week in Skylark this week. Science experiments, blended learning, art projects and lots of reading!

As our topic is all about rivers and coasts we have started off by learning the importance of the water cycle. To help the children learn this, they created their own water cycle and watched as the events took place. The children enjoyed predicting what would happen and discussing why their predictions were correct or not.

Blended learning is nearly in full swing too! we are getting lots of use out of the Chromebooks and are accessing lessons using a range of apps including google drawings, google docs, top marks and TT rock stars!

This week we looked at new techniques based on the works of Pam Carter. This week we practised techniques such as blending. Next week we will continue with our water colours and use layering to add effect.

Of course this week, reading week, has meant we have read, read, read! the children loved sharing their favourite books with one another! Some brilliant recommendations. Thank you to all parents who have sent their pictures in of children reading in unusual places and reading to family members. The video will go out next week!

Finally a mention to our learner of the week. He has been working extremely hard in all aspects of school life!
