Autumn 1 Week 6

Dear Parents,

We've had another productive week in Class 3. We have been working hard at learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and we have enjoyed writing our own version of Snow White.

In Geography we made up our own fact cards and compared two capital cities, London and Brasilia! 

In RE we wrote table contracts and discussed why it is important to keep our promises! 

We would like to remind all children and parents, that the homework is handed out every Tuesday and is due in the following Monday. Unfortunately we won't be able to mark the homework, if it is handed in late.

New spellings will go home every Tuesday and the spelling test is on the following Monday. We will be focusing on Common Exception words (also known as Tricky Words) for the rest of the term!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing lots of you next week for Family Week! 

Mrs Weston and Mrs Pateman

Autumn Week 6

Another week has flown by in Class 5! We've been very busy designing our wands and writing our advert in English, working on our short division skills in maths and exploring the different layers of soil in science! 

I have seen a real improvement in the children's presentation this week and they are becoming far more confident in using their learning powers to show their understanding! It makes marking their work far more interesting and exciting to read! 

I'm aware that some children have been a bit careless with their belongings at school and our cloakroom is full of jumpers, coats, bits of PE kits and trainers. Hopefully next week we can keep on top of tidying it and everyone can take home their items. 

Looking forward to seeing some of your on Thursday afternoon for Class 5's family week session - there will be lots of maths actitivites to do including Turbo Tables! 

Have a good weekend, 

Miss Walker :)

A braw day tae dae an assembly!

Thank you Class 6 for all your effort in learning Scots songs, poetry and facts for your assembly. As I asked you just the other day, do you feel you know more about Scotland than you did in week one?... and everyone said yes. I also hope that you managed to try some homemade tablet. Remember not too much or a trip to the dentist may be the next dae oot!

With it being our class assembly, harvest service and some of the children being out at St Albans Cathedral with the choir I have not given homework out this week. Please see it as an opportunity to try and get some additional grid learning completed, or get yourself absorbed in a book.  I have loved seeing the range of learning coming in off the grid. Well done!You should have all had spellings and your test will be on Monday morning.

With trying to get everything ready for the end of the week we have not covered as many subjects, but here is what we have been up to. On Monday the children had a good swimming session and on return completed their weekly spellings and dictation. Already I can see a difference with their achievements, especially with regards to dictation.

I'm so pleased and proud of the way the children rose to the challenge of reading in Scots. We have been making a start to having a go at writing in Scots. Vocabulary is something that we are always discussing within class. We have been looking at writing poems in English about the Highlands and then with the use of a Scottish guide we will turn them into Scots verse.

In Maths we have looked at multiples, factors, primes, square roots and how some can be common to more than one number. These are all important skills to cover, so that when this mathematical vocabulary appears, they can tackle any kind of question.

We had a really enjoyable PE lesson on the field on Wednesday morning. I felt I had run about as much as the kids once playing football. I can definately see that everyones shooting skills, dribbling and teamwork are really coming along nicely.

In Science we have looked at how we hear sounds, paying particular attention to the parts of the ear and their functions.

I do hope cookery club have not over indulged with the tablet and treacle scones. Please do not worry Class 6 I still have tablet left for you all to have a try on Monday.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Stewart

Class 5 Week 5

Biscuits, biscuits and biscuits!

Thursday and Friday some of the children have been able to finally make their biscuits they have designed in DT. They have worked hard to keep to their specification however, the odd marshmallow or popping candy toppings seem to have snuck into their last minute design changes! We will continue our biscuit making on Monday for those who didn’t get the chance to this week!

In maths, we have been looking and the short and long multiplication method and have been working hard to ensure we know each step of the method. Some children admitted to struggling a bit as they did not know their times tables! Please try to practice these regularly, as it is a great help when learning trickier things!

We have finished our Harry Potter Hogwarts accepted letters this week – I am sure some of you saw the finished ones up on the wall on Monday. They have been well written and the children have focused on the format of a formal letter. Next week, we will be looking at advertisements for Wands and completing some descriptive writing!

Finally, an apology to the Year 5 parents – In the mad rush of a Friday afternoon I completely forgot to give out the children’s Residential School Journey letter. These will be given out on Monday.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and with the absence of weekly homework, maybe some grid homework can be done, or extra times table practice!

See you Monday,

Miss Walker
