Thank you 2D for a wonderful year! I have enjoyed teaching each and every one of you so much and I feel very proud of you ALL. You have all grown up and are definitely ready for KS2. Always remember if a task feels tricky - be brave and 'have a go' because you CAN do it! I look forward to hearing all about you from your new teachers! Don't forget to come back and say 'hello' sometimes!
We had a wonderful time at Framligham Castle last week! The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and they were enthusiastic, curious, reflective and very happy! They all behaved beautifully and a member of the public even noticed and commented how proud we should feel of ourselves.
Here are some pictures to give you a flavour of the day.
This week we had another VERY important visitor! She was a REAL Medieval Lady and she lives in a castle. We had to be extremely polite as she was rather strict! Here are a few facts we found out:
Well done 2D! You performed a wonderful assembly without having ANY rehearsals! We were so busy showing our important visitors how hard we work, we didn't have any time! Some of you felt a little bit nervous but you were VERY brave and 'had a go'! Lots of people had to read sentences they had not seen until 5 minutes before the performance! Your singing was beautiful and you played instruments with perfect timing. You were resilient and you should feel VERY proud of yourselves! I am sure your grown ups will agree with me!
In maths today we made pictographs. We used the pictures on the graph to show how many people used each type of transport on a journey. Look carefully because the key may change! Sometimes 1 picture represents 1 person. At other times the picture may represent 2 people. We challenged ourselves and made up questions to help you interpret the pictograph. Can you answer them?
In maths we have been using a new strategy called the 'Bar Method' to help us solve maths word problems. It felt a bit tricky at first but we are already getting the hang of it! It is simply a method to help us visualise how to solve calculations and decide which operation to use! Look at these examples:
This week we have been planting seeds. We know all about the conditions a seed needs to germinate. Each day we take turns to water them. Now all we have to do is be patient! If you look closely you can see that some shoots have already started to grow. Can you guess what types of plants we are growing?
We are 2D!
