Poppies and Silence

Year 4&5 have been learning about the First World War and this year marks 100 years since the end of this conflict.  In a special assembly, Year 5 explained to Years 1, 2 3 and 4 what Remembrance Day is about and why this is marked with a one minute silence across the world. They also explained why the poppy has become the symbol for Remembrance Day and told the children that Calpe School will be marking the 100 year anniversary of peace with its own one minute silence.  Each child in Years 1-5 will make their own poppy and will take part in showing their respect to the fallen soldiers on Friday morning.

Playing with Shapes

Nursery class spent last week exploring shape in many different ways through play. They worked together to make various 2-D shapes with their bodies, matched shapes to baby owl shapes and experimented with making shape impressions by pressing the shapes into play dough. This way of learning through play has helped Nursery to better understand and enjoy learning about 2-D shapes.

Mad about Measuring

In their Maths lessons, the children in Reception class have been measuring objects from the story ‘Titch’.

They have been using Multi-link cubes to create objects and describing them using mathematical language such as ‘longest’ and ‘shortest’. The children had to remember to line up the object and the cubes in order to measure it accurately. During their free play, the class also explored rulers and tape measures. They measured tables and chairs as well as their own constructions. The class also used the ‘popoids’ to make the longest snake they could!

Vocabulary Detectives

Year 4 & 5 have been working hard to improve their vocabulary and to look for clues in the text to work out what the author is telling us through gestures and descriptive language.  They have learned to ‘read between the lines’ and make inferences from different phrases and vocabulary choices.  They have then learned how to employ this technique in their own written work.
