Week 1 of Spring 2!

We’ve had a busy week back in Class 4!

In English, we have been reading the book HodgeHeg by Dick King Smith. From this we have starter to right our own advernture story about an animal that has an accident and gets his words muddled up! Class 4 have been working so hard to include expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbails and choosing words that are more interesting by thinking of a synonym!

In Maths, we have made a brilliant start learning about fractions! I was blown away with their problem solving so I gave them a challenge of adding fractions with different dominators and so many of the children were able to solve it!

In R.E, we have written our opinions and ideas about The Big Frieze and continues to try and understand the order of the Bible. There were some fantasstic, thoughtful ideas in this lesson.

Swimming carries on this term, it’s lovely to hear stories of the children doing so well and moving up in different groups!

The new Homework Grid also went out on Thursday (it is also on the website) and children need to complete 4 this half term - I can’t wait to see more fantastic, creative homework!

Also, the photos from our trip are on the website! I had an amazing day with the children, I’m sire they did too!

Don’t forget it is World Book Day on Thursday!

Have a lovely weekend

Spring 1, Week 5

This week in class one, we began our mini topic of fairy tales. We all had a bit of a shock when on Monday, a beanstalk mysteriously grew in the middle of our classroom. After some investigation work, we learnt the story of Jack and the beanstalk and decided that Jack must have visited our classroom over the weekend. We used the story to generate lots of amazing child initiated activities such as setting up our own fairy tale shop to buy real beans using coins, made our own paper stick figures to re-enact the story and even grew our own beanstalks in class. We all thought carefully about the things our beans would need and made sure to place our pots in a sunny spot in class... have a look during Monday’s open session, to see if ours have grown!

As well as Jack and the beanstalk, we have also looked at many other fairy tales this week including Snow White, The Gingerbread Man, Rumpelstiltskin and The Three Bears. We learnt that most traditional tales have a lesson/moral in them to teach us and we thought hard about what these might be. We also listened carefully for things which happen 3 times as we learnt this is another common feature of traditional tales. Next week, we will learn some more fairy tales and end our half term with some sewing as we create our own felt fairy tale puppets!

Enjoy your weekend everybody!

Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Sabri
