Holkham’s Week 18th June

Well Holkham what a busy couple of weeks we have had! We have now finished our units on time for mathematics and year 4 are moving on with statistics while year 3 will be looking at  angles and properties of shapes.

In literacy we have written a set of instructions for our hot task and we are now working on learning how to write a dilemma story. Our focussed text is The Great Kapok Tree.

In DT this term we are looking at the differences between greek sandals and sandals of today. This week we deconstructed a sandal to see how it was made we found leather for the straps and upper sole. foam padding for comfort, a hard plastic sole with a rubber sole on the bottom. The sandals were held together with glue, stitching and staples they also had nails holding the straps onto the hard sole. Have a look at our deconstructed sandal.

In science this term we are learning all about plants and we set up an experiment to show how the stems of a plant work. we are continuing to watch out flowers to see if they change colour.

In music we continue to use the ocarina’s and we are improving weekly.

In topic this week we looked at the Greek philosophers and thought about some questions they might have asked themselves.why not have a look at a few of them?

In PE we have been looking at athletic skills. We should have been running this week but it was far too hot so we continued to look at our throwing skills for shot and javelin.

In computing we are enjoying looking at the era of silent movies we have been trying to act scenes without speaking can you guess what we are doing?


Have a look at the homework we have completed off this terms homework grid!

I am so impressed with your work ethic at the moment Holkham. Keep up the good work!

Have a fantastic weekend
