Spring 2, Week 2

I have asked Class 4 what they thought the highlight of our week was, most of the children said World Book Day! Some children said it was the Snow! What a week!

Class 4 have worked really hard on finishing their stories based on the book 'The Hodgeheg'. There have been lots of adventures of many different animals having accidents and getting their words muddled up! From Drigonflays to Dilphons, the writing produced has been fantastic! It is even more fantastic that Class 4 worked very hard writing these stories into an actual books, finished off with a colourful front cover and a descriptive blurb. I am very impressed with how they have turned out - who knew I had a class of budding authors!

In maths, we have continued to work hard on finding the fraction of an amount. It has lead to some interesting discussions about how fractions link with times tables. Please continue to support your child to practise their times tables, it really does help in all of maths!

We've also learnt more about The Rainforest and have been writing some hillarious play scripts for a weather report live from the Rainforest! I can't wait to see them being performed. 

Well done and thank you for all the hard work with costumes for World Book Day - they really did look brilliant! The photos are on the website.

Have a lovely weekend, don't forget swimming and homework on Monday!

P.S. It is assessment week next week.

Spring 2, Week 1

Welcome back everyone, we hope you have enjoyed your half term!

In class this week, we have been looking at jungle animals, we have been researching how animals disguise themselves in the wild and we used this, to create our own "camouflage" paintings! We had great fun mixing the colours to blend in with our chosen animals and the finished results look fantastic.

We have also explored the new jungle themed role play this week with jungle dress up, binoculars and animal props.  We are excited to do some of the many jungle activities in there, over the next few weeks.

In RE this week, we have had fun acting out the story of Noah's ark and have also been putting on puppet shows with the theme "I belong" what do we belong to? From clubs to families to religions, how does it feel to be left out? We were very impressed at how much the children amerced themselves into this activity.

In keeping with our jungle theme, maths this week has focused on ordering, measuring, bigger, smaller all with different sized elephants and measuring worms. Next week, we will be looking into the needs of pets and will also be learning our doubles to 10!

Reminders/Other

Next Friday is cake day, with Class 3 taking their turn to provide the cakes and set up the stall.  Please bring in either 25p for one cake or 50p for two cakes, making sure coins are in a wallet/ purse/ names envelope or container.

Don't forget that World Book Day is on Thursday (1st March). We can't wait to see which book characters you will come dressed as! Will you win the 'best outfit' competition?

Lastly, Class One seem to be a little short of spare underwear at the moment from our 'spare uniform' boxes, particularly girl underwear.  If your child has borrowed any knickers or underpants this term and they are in suitable condition to return, we would greatly appreciate them back in! Alternatively, if you have any which you could donate to the class supply, we would be very grateful!

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
