This week in Porthcothan has been another busy and active learning week.
We have learnt about the Pop Art artist Roy Lichtenstein and how he liked to create pictures of everyday things using limited amounts of block colour and Ben-day dots. The children became Pop artists and made replica images in the style of Roy Lichtenstein. They loved getting creative and chose up to 5 colours, like the Artist.
In maths we have moved our learning on to language of positioning: 1st, 2nd,3rd etc. We ordered ourselves in groups and checked each other to support understanding.
Literacy this week has created the opportunity to use lots of our own ideas; we created our own hero and villian and then wrote our very own problem story. We then reflected on our writing and looked carefully that tricky red words hadn't tricked us, especially after we told them "You won't trick me!". The children have all tried incredibly hard to fom letters correctly, use their own ideas and listen carefully for sounds in words to help their sentences make sense.
In PE, we worked in groups to move our bodies together as different sea creatures. We watched carefully and gave feedback to eachother about what worked well and what could be even better for next time.
In Science we delved deeper in to the world of materials whereby we grouped different objects by their materials type.
Well done to Ava and Lewis on their DOJO certifate this week,
Lewis has used his wisdom and great attitude to learning admirably in maths and Ava has worked with determination and eagerness this week in literacy.
Harvest Festival- Monday 8th October
The children will be preparing songs and learning to share at this years harvest festival which will take place in the church at 1.30pm. It would be lovely to see family there too.
