4BM 2017 - 2018

Miss Moulton

Welcome to 4BM

 

Welcome to 4BM's class page. Here you can access our weekly update, class spellings and homework.

My name is Miss Moulton and I am new to Offley this year. Last year, I completed my teacher training in another primary school within Cheshire East. In my spare time I enjoy walking, singing and drama. I love musical theatre and have seen over 20 different shows by both professional and amateur theatre groups.

*************

This half term the children will be answering two Project based learning questions which will be the basis for our curriculum work. Our main question which will encompass history, music, art, literacy, geography and some science is: Were our ancestors happier in the Stone and Iron Age; how did they survive? Our history covers the Stone to Iron age; geography is settlements and trade; in music the children will be composing their own music; in art they will be creating cave art; science will focus on nutrition and in English the children will be writing adventure stories and instructions. Our main English text will be the Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We also have a Bush craft expert coming into school on the 26th of September to teach the children some of the skills our ancestors would have used to survive. I have attached a curriculum map to give you a broader insight into the curriculum this year.

Our second project has a science focus and asks: How can we build a wall using a liquid and then make it disappear? This is based on the changes of state of matter.

In maths the children will be learning about place value; counting in blocks; the four number operations and area/perimeter. We will be focussing on fluency, reasoning and applying skills.

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Clarkson, where possible PE will be outdoors so please ensure the children have their outdoor PE kit in school. This term Mrs Clarkson will be focusing on skills within Netball and Hockey.

Every week I will post an update and add spellings and homework when applicable. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me through the school office.

Weekly update w/b 11.09.17:

4BM have had a brilliant first full week back in school. The children have worked extremely hard; I have been really impressed with their attitudes to learning. 

English 

This week in English, we continued to learn actions for our new text 'Stone Age Boy'. We have also begun to explore the characters in the story through role play. Next week, we will be starting to look at the story in more detail and will be analysing the features of an adventure story.

Maths

In Maths, this week we have been focusing on rounding to the nearest 10 and 100 from any given number. We have used a range of hands on equipment to help us work out more challenging problems. Next week, we will be looking at counting on and back in 1,000's from any given 4-digit number.

 

Science 

Next week we are focussing on our PBL project based on the Stone Age and will be looking at our curriculum links in Geography, PE, Art, History, Music and English.
