In Ruby class, we enjoy working as a team who support each other to strive for our best. We love learning new things and finding out answers to our own questions. Our teacher is Miss Martin and we are supported by Mrs Sumner (TA) and Mrs Cook (HLTA).
During the autumn term we are learning about evolution and inheritance and the Aztec, Inca and Mayan civilisations, we have already learnt so much! In PE we have been working on different gymnastics skills. However our favourite part of PE is playing tag rugby. Over the next half term we will learn a Mayan dance and practise our hockey skills. Our PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday.
We have loved being able to sketch different sculptures and then create a fossil sculpture of our own using clay. We really enjoyed being able to excavate them afterwards, just like an archaeologist. Next half term we will be making an Aztec Headdress using and improving our sewing skills.
In English we have been studying a book called Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman. We have been reading through the book and focusing on different types of texts in our writing. We have written diary entries, letters, a discussion text and story writing.
Our maths this term has focused mainly around number, understanding the value of the digits within the numbers, adding and subtracting them. Next half term we will also be focusing on multiplying and dividing numbers
