6th February 2015

This week we have been learning about amazing adjectives in our Literacy lessons. We were imagining different animals from the Galapagos Islands and coming up with our own words to describe them. (Ralph). This morning we did PE with Mr Jefferies – we were looking at the difference between attacking and defending headers and we played a football game and it was really fun (Isabelle). Today they were lots of goals (Jake). In music we have been listening to songs and singing them and it was fantastic (Joseph). In spellings our spelling words are ‘oa’ and ‘il’ and ‘o-e’. We looked at these in phonics and in handwriting (Emily). Earlier in the week we have been looking at time connectives (Adam). In our Maths, we are learning about fractions – 1/2s, 1/3, 1/4s and we had a game where we were trying to find fractions of numbers (Hannah). In ICT we started making our factsheet. We chose an animal and we learnt how to edit and write a title. (Katie).

Mrs Nichols and Mrs Wilson want to say thank you for the quality of home learning last week. It was obvious that everyone has been really captivated by our topic, and a huge amount of effort went into either the factsheets or the diaries. Well done!

This week in Literacy we learned how to draw a mindmap and it was really fun, but quite hard. (Katie) A mindmap is useful for writing down information and organising it (Katie).   In Literacy we have been doing mindmaps about the Titanic and Under the Ocean (Ralph).

 Today I want to say a big thank you to Mr Jefferies because he has been teaching us new football skills (Chloe).   Today we have been doing football with Mr Jefferies and he has been teaching us dribbling, passing and chipping.  Next week we are learning headering (Luke).  

In our Maths we have been doubling with Mrs Wilson and Mrs Nichols.  We are trying really hard to learn all the doubles up to 20 (Hannah). 

Mrs Nichols videoed us in the role play area and turned it into a short movie (Morgan).  When we were doing the video, we pretended we had a telescope and I was spinning the globe, and we took turns to sketch and steer the ship (Barley).
