Lo que hicimos en español (otoño 2)

Time for an update on Spanish over the last few weeks!

MatemáticasY3 have been working hard on their numbers in Spanish, concentrating not just on recognising and correctly writing them but also on pronouncing them correctly. They're been listening out for phonemes and discovering the grapheme that corresponds, and then applying this to pronounce new words. They've also been doing some Spanish maths.

cuál es la fecha de hoy optY4 have been looking at numbers too, this time to 31 as part of learning how to write the date in Spanish. You can have a go yourself by using the image above to guide you! They enjoyed discovering the numbers through playing a game of dominoes, and worked hard on distinguishing between ei and ie in numbers like seis and siete.

animales domesticos opt

Year 5 have spent this half term learning how to talk about pets, applying structures that they learned in the first half term to talk about their families to talk abotu their pets. They'va laso enjoyed using their imaginations and writing about their pet 'elefantes' and 'tigres'.

triarama

And Year 6 have concluded this unit of learning by makiing triaramas, advertising what can and can't be found in their town. They enjoyed drafitng and 'polishing' their writing and then presenting it in a creative attractive way. Señora Stevens was particularly impressed by the independence of several pupils who looked back in their books and recycled language from previous years without prompting. 

Christmas Angel Design

 

Holy Trinity Church has launched an exciting Christmas art project to try to fill their church with lots of beautiful angels.

If you would like to take part you can print the  angel template from the attached link (or see Mrs Edwards in school for a copy) and decorate it anyway you please. There is a prize for the best designed angel.

Angels can be given in directly to the Chursch before 7th December or can be handed to Mrs Edwards in school by Wednesday 6th December.

You will then be able to view the angels in the church December 11th, 13th and 15th between 5pm and 7pm.

Good Luck and get creative!
