April 2021

We haven't spent many days of April in school, but the days that we have been in, we have been super busy! 



We have been reading the story 'No Ballet Shoes in Syria' about a young child refugee living in Manchester. Aya loves ballet, and hearing music in the community centre brings back memories of her life back home in Aleppo. 


Our lessons have been focused on 'using descriptive language to develop characters, settings and plot.'

We created our own text maps, identifying and discussing the language and vocabulary of the text. We explored the different characters and looked at what we could learn about them through the descriptions in the text, especially Aya, the main character. 



We have learnt Roman Numerals in our Maths lessons - can you think of where we might see or use them today? 

We know that there are five symbols that are used to write numbers to 100. 

We used this knowledge to write all the number to 100 in Roman Numerals and solve problems. 





Our new butterfly 'The Heart of London' includes us taking a closer look at Erith and our local area. 

We thought about Erith in 2021 and what we see in the local area today, what do you think are the key landmarks in and around Erith? 




Football is our focus for this half term (which some of us were very pleased about!)

We have been thinking about the principles of football and practising our passing skills and ball control. 



Inspire, Aspire

For our 'You Are Capable of Amazing Things' butterfly we learnt all about the NHS and the different job roles there are. We thought about and discussed how NHS staff inspire us through what they do. We also thought about our own futures and what we aspire to be when we are older.  

We used our work for our class display.
