Homework – 14th October

The spelling words for this week are:

disobey         misspell
misbehave   mislead

Lots of you have been using Times Tables Rock Stars this week and are pushing for that top spot, so keep on trying.  The better you know your times tables, the easier you will find maths generally.

Making musical instruments in Hawk

Following on from their lesson last, the children in Hawk class were working on finishing their musical instruments in their groups. They were reminded of the different techniques we had been discussing, such as painting and decorating with different materials, ranging from printing to collage. They all enjoyed demonstrating their different techniques -we hope you do too!

DT-Hawk making Musical instruments

As part of our project on British black music, in DT Hawk looked back at the musical instruments they designed before using the resources they brought from home to start building their own musical instruments. They worked collaboratively in small groups with lots of sticky tape and glue-lots of sticky fun, as we hope you can see! We would be grateful if you could carry on bringing in the resources this week too, please!

Homework – 4th October 2019

The homework for this week is to learn the following spellings:


As well as this, please continue with your times tables. You should now have your Rock Stars login details, so have a go at logging in this weekend and see how you do.

Finally, most of us have now at least begun our musical instrument.  If you didn’t bring the materials in this week, please do so for next Tuesday, and if you have finished your instrument, think about how you would like to improve or decorate it.

Art in Hawk Class-using Printing ink

In Art last week Hawk have been using printing ink to start designing their album covers, cross-linking to their topic on Black British music. They looked at examples of printed album art, then watched the teacher modelling how to print using printing ink, a whiteboard, roller and a sharp pencil. The class then started on their own designs,some of which are shown here. Aren’t they amazing?
