Our new IPC topic

 

Our new IPC topic is called 'The Generation Game - Young and Old'. No matter who we are, we all have one thing in common – we are growing older every day. Thanks to advances in health, science and medical care, most people can now expect to live longer than at any time before in history. However, with this comes a great responsibility. Not only must we take better care of ourselves, we must also take care of others, ensuring that our society respects and values everyone, regardless of their age. This topic will remind us how we must respect and care for everybody in our society and other societies around the world. We will also be looking at the beautiful words of any international agreement called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These are promises to everyone. They are the economic, social, political, cultural and civil rights that underpin a life free from want and fear.

Reading
 

We believe reading is essential. It will not only help us in daily life, but it is also enjoyable!

Here are some good reasons why it is important to read or be read to;

  • Reading opens up a whole new world of understanding and comprehension of the world around us and increases our knowledge. We read a range of news articles so we understand what is happening around us.
  • Reading takes us to places we have never been before and enhances our imagination. We like to listen to stories and feel what it is like to become a character in a different setting.We recently listened to a story about 'The Great Fire Of London' and could re-live the emotions of all the different characters. See our pictures below.

 

   

 

Hearing about the fire                Crouching from the flames             Pointing to our escape route

 

We have a diverse range of books to support your child's reading within the school, and we hope this will enable your child to experience a range of authors and styles of books. In terms of reading, we want children to be able to :

  • Enjoy reading and see it as a pleasurable leisure activity, as well as a means of following instructions and finding things out.  
  • Have the reading skills necessary to read a range of text types for pleasure and for information.

To be confident and competent readers children need to have access to a range of reading experiences. This includes reading as much as possible at home. Most children will be responsible for selecting their own reading book and changing these when they are finished. 

 

 We have made our reading area comfortable. It is a place where we can read peacefully and enjoy different types of books.

 

 

 

 

Celebrating reading through dance

 

We celebrated reading through dance when interpreting 'The Fall of the Iron Man'. This was a dance sequence based on The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. See our pictures below.

No pen day

We took part in activities all day where we did not pick up a pen! In maths, we used and applied our knowledge of polygons by sorting them into Venn diagrams. See our pictures below.

 

      

 

Sorting polygons         Which triangle to choose?      Placing shapes 

 

We listened to the story of Florence Nightingale through headphones. We experienced how she may have felt when treating injured soldiers during the Crimean war. We could act out her thoughts and emotions.

Maths

We have been looking at 3D shapes and can talk about their properties. As a class, St Martin de Porres built 3D shapes out of cocktail sticks. We discussed the number of faces each shape had and what sort of face these were. We could also say how many edges and vertices our shapes had.
