This week we have been learning about multiplication. After investigating using practical objects such as numicon and cubes we are really getting to grips with it! Have a look at the kinds of tasks we have been exploring. Can you solve this one? Here is a link to a website with some multiplication games:
We had a wonderful party day and all felt so excited and smart wearing our Christmas jumpers!
Thank you very much for all your thoughtful cards and gifts. You should all be VERY proud of your children who are growing up into creative, resilient, brave and independent young people. We have had a fabulous term and we can't wait to start it all again in 2018!
We are starting to work very hard practising our Christmas production - Baa Baa Bethlehem! We are very excited and are trying our best to use our big voices and remember our lines off by heart. We can't wait until you come and watch us! Here is a sneak preview picture!!!
Thank you to all of you who came to our Christmas Craft morning. We had a wonderful time with glitter and glue everywhere! The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the grown ups were very creative too!! We will sell all the items at the Christmas Fair and raise some money to buy something special for our class. Have a look at our photos:
In Science we have been learning all about germs and how to stop them spreading. We carried out an experiment to find out how far germs spread when you sneeze!
We used a water sprayer as a pretend sneeze!!! It was VERY funny! Then we measured how far the germs travelled. Some went more than 200 cm! Now we will always cover our mouths when we sneeze!!!
This week in PE we have been creating weather dances. We have to make ourselves into particular shapes to represent different weather types. Can you spot a whirling tornado, snow flakes drifting, spiky ice, gently blowing wind and shining sunshine? See if you can guess which shape we are making?
Yet another busy week in 2D! Our brains have been zap, zap, zapping! We have been persevering with some VERY tricky maths. We needed to remember our place value, partitioning AND empty number line skills! Here we are hard at work!
Last Tuesday we visited Christchurch Park as part of our Geography topic 'weather experts'. We all had a wonderful time and it was sooo exciting! We learnt to use a real compass and gave each other directions to move around the park. Then we made 'leaf art' pictures with conkers, twigs and leaves. Finally, we had great fun in the play area! Have a look at our photos:
This week we had a very special visitor. To link with our Science topic of 'Healthy Me' and our termly career visitor - the school cook came to visit us in our class. We asked her thoughtful questions using loud, clear voices.
Here are some facts we learnt:
This week we have been reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. We have been thinking about adjectives to describe the dragon. We had to write a letter to the witch to warn her about the dragon! We have been sharing lots of other stories too with our reading buddies. We just LOVE stories! Which is your favourite?
