All the children have found recent maths (fractions and decimals) quite challenging.

In our MUSIC lesson we explored the elements of traditional children's  songs; this is the song we used for our investigation.

 

I've put the lyrics here, along with a video-link, so that you can enjoy learning and singing together!

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady!

Build it up with iron bars,
Iron bars, iron bars.
Build it up with iron bars,
My fair lady!

Iron bars will bend and break,
Bend and break, bend and break.
Iron bars will bend and break,
My fair lady!

Build it up with needles and pins,
Needles and pins, needles and pins.
Build it up with needles and pins,
My fair lady!

Pins and needles rust and bend,
Rust and bend, rust and bend.
Pins and needles rust and bend,
My fair lady!

Build it up with penny loaves,
Penny loaves, penny loaves.
Build it up with penny loaves,
My fair lady!

Penny loaves will tumble down,
Tumble down, tumble down.
Penny loaves will tumble down,
My fair lady!

Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, silver and gold.
Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair lady!

Gold and silver I've not got,
I've not got, I've not got.
Gold and silver I've not got,
My fair lady!

Here's a prisoner I have got,
I have got, I have got.
Here's a prisoner I have got,
My fair lady!

In our MUSIC lesson this week we explored the meaning of 'a round' in musical terminology.

 

To help us understand, we learnt the song 'London's Burning', and the children are having great fun trying to perfect their performance!

 

I hope that by Christmas they will be good enough for me to video them and post on here for you to see!

 

Warm regards to you all.

It's our Learning with Parents afternoon!

 

Please come and join us for a creative challenge between 2pm & 3pm on Thursday 6th October.

However, I have spotted a mistake in the SYLLABLES section!

I wonder if you can spot it too?

 

 

Our Class Assembly this morning was AMAZING!

 

The singing, reading and speaking was WONDERFUL; all of the children gave their very best.

 

 

 

(pictures to follow!)


Roehampton Class love being creative.

 

All have produced an original story this week, and a small group of enthusiastic authors volunteered to read their first draft to the class.

 

Not only were their tales full of great ideas and well-chosen vocabulary, their reading was clear and confident.

 

Well done and thank you for sharing your work with us.

We've been investigating 2-D shapes in maths; please find below a simple powerpoint presentation which provides a fun way for your child to revise class learning at home.

 

Roehampton children have been AMAZING with regard to school uniform!

THANK YOU parents and carers; your children have been a shining example to everyone, looking SO smart with everything correct according to our school requirements. We REALLY your cooperation.

Our TOPIC through Terms 1 & 2 is LONDON.

 

This week in our Geography lesson we watched a video before completing a task which helped us to make comparisons between a city (London) and a town (Margate).

 

I have attached a link to the video here; you might like to watch it with your child to reinforce information about our TOPIC.

 

It is important that pupils can identify famous landmarks in London, in addition to forming opinions about cities in general.

It's a challenging but valuable part of our numeracy programme.

Please find below a link to a useful, but fun, video; perhaps you could watch it with your child to help him/her consolidate our classroom learning?

 

Thank you for your interest in, and support of your child's progress.

 

Warm regards
