Next Week in Class Kenya

In English, we will continue to look at traditional tales. The children will be writing riddles to describe characters from well known traditional tales, creating setting and character descriptions, orally re-telling and adapting stories, creating story maps and plans and writing their own version of a traditional tale.  

In Maths, we will be solving word-based problems in the context of doubles, halves and money. The children will also be estimating, comparing and measuring weights and capacities, choosing and using standard units and suitable measuring instruments.


In P.E, we will be using our balancing and juggling skills that we have developed over the last few weeks to create sequenced performances.

In Art, we will be looking at the work of various artists that have been inspired by the circus. We will be studying their creations and using our observational drawing skills to re-create some of their images using a variety of different materials such as watercolours, pastels and chalks.  

In Information Technology, we will be using the skills we have developed using draw tools, as well as the information we have gathered during our Geography lessons, to create maps and plans of a circus that include labels and simple keys.

In Music, over the next few weeks, we will be looking at how musicians have used musical instruments to create different effects and representations of circus performers. We will also be using a range of instruments to create our own musical scores to represent circus performers.

In Design and Technology, we will be looking at how tents are used to provide shelter and investigating properties of the materials used to make them. We will also be having a go at constructing some simple tents ourselves, so if anyone has one at home that they wouldn't mind lending us then I would be very grateful.
