This week, we have been learning about place value and how numbers are made up. We are getting really good at identifying the tens and ones in numbers.
We used this knowledge to learn about money. We identified all of the different coins we have in our country. We know there is not a 30p piece! Or a 40p piece!
We were given a problem to solve....
Mrs Aristidou has 2 coins in her purse. Mrs Garland has 4 coins in her purse. Miss Phillips has 5 coins in her purse. We all have 55p. Is this possible?
We found out you can make the same amount with lots of different coins. Here is an example of our work...
We just can't seem to stop singing wherever we are!
Here is another song which we like. There's quite a lot of words to remember so enjoy practising!!
We have been learning this song in class. The words remind us how to be as learners. We are bold, strong and brave!!
Here is the video so you can practise at home!
As part of our Science topic (Life on a treasure island), we have been thinking about what we could eat to survive. We decided sweets, chocolate and cakes don't grow on trees!!
We thought about different vegetables we could grow on the island and tasted 4 different types. We tasted green beans, sprouting broccoli, carrots and sugarsnap peas. We were really brave and tried all of them - even if they weren't our favourite!!
Well done to the children who received a learning certificate today. Children have really proved their excellent learning attitudes this week and we are all very proud of you! Lots of children have been resilient and reflective this week.
Happy Birthday to these children. Have a lovely long weekend celebrating!
It will be our class sharing assembly on Friday 11th May. We can't wait to see you all there so we can show you what we have been learning!
The children have worked unbelievably hard this week. I can't believe we are in the summer term already. The children are learning so much and growing every day.
This week we have been reading the story Rainbow Fish. We wrote a story about our own fish on an adventure. As we were working so hard, we had a lovely treat - we had a delicious strawberry while we were writing. This really helped to power our brains!! The children were so engrossed in their writing they carried on even when munching!!
Today was an exciting afternoon. We had 2 visitors who came to teach us some important skills to use when playing squash. We took part in 3 challenges.
1. We worked in 2 teams and had to try and throw a ball to make the racket fall off the bench.
2. We had to throw a ball in the air and catch it. It helped when we didn't take our eyes off the ball!
3. We had to keep the ball on the racket for as long as possible!
You are invited to join us in our classroom on Thursday 29th March at 2.45pm as part of our Design and Technology day.
This will be a chance for you to see what we have been learning.
Look for the invitation in your child's book bag for more information.
We look forward to seeing you!
This morning, we thought about the animals we saw at the zoo. We decided to paint them using bright colours - we used artist paintings to look at for inspiration and worked hard to recreate them.
