A busy final week of term in Year 3 this week. Although it is the final week, we are still working hard across the curriculum. In English we have been focusing on our guided reading with students responding to their groups' texts by conducting research about issues raised in their books or positioning themselves as characters and reflecting. We've also been looking at identifying and applying prepositions.
In Maths we have been focusing on the four operations especially multiplication, division and addition of larger numbers. Students have been working on consolidating strategies which have either been new to them or effective for them in past work.
In Science we have been finishing our investigation reports. These have been presented well and look great on our wall.
As this is my final week at EIS SW, I would like to thank all of the staff, families and students who have been wonderful during my time at the campus. I wish you all the best of luck for the future.
It has been a great end to term 2 for Year 4. There has been an ongoing Easter Hunt competition throughout the school all week which the children have greatly enjoyed. Our children did well and found eggs.
In English we have continued our class read ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ and carried out reading activities based around the skills of inference and justifying with evidence from the text. This week we have learnt how to compose a formal letter and when and how to use fronted adverbials. We also carried out our end of term reading assessment.
In Math, we have been revising decimal numbers, perimeter, and place value of whole numbers. We also carried out our end of term assessment
In Topic we have carried on exploring our unit: ‘Entertainment and Leisure’. This week we have explored how television has evolved over the 20th and 21st century. The children debated whether television is good or bad for society and why.
In Science we carried on our new unit about ‘Sound’. This week we studied the scientific vocabulary to describe the travel of sound leaving an object and being received by the brain.
This has been a fun-filled and busy final week of Spring Term. Year 5 have managed to complete their unit of work on the Museum of Fun and have relaxed back into ‘Charlotte’s Web’ which we began to read and enjoy in the first week of this term! We have continued to work hard in Maths concentrating on our place value and different methods of subtraction in order to work accurately with 4 digit numbers.
We had fun once again in Science by creating carbon dioxide by adding sodium bicarbonate to vinegar and succeeded in inflating several balloons to prove this. The children also worked amicably together in small groups to complete a short informal assessment where they had to use their scientific detective skills to work out what several ‘mysterious’ white powders were.
Finally, we have had much joy hunting for and finding eggs which have been hidden around the school, to give us extra House Points this week. This has been a brief but intense term and I hope that Year 5 will rest well over the next week, ready to begin our final but fairly long, Summer Term, fresh and rejuvenated.
We have had a great week in Year 6, we have been finishing our assessments this week and did really well. Mr. Marsh was proud of us. We also had a great field trip to a WWII museum where we learned about the defense of Moscow during the war. We even got to practice an air raid drill like the soilders of WWII. We had a great time and are ready for our break.

They have been diligent in practicing their songs, as everyone will be singing every song during the show. Mr. Marsh has come in once in a while to see the progress and has been extremely proud of everyone’s effort. Keep up the great work.
