Fantastic Finale!

Congratulations to our pupils of the week, who were chosen for their amazing team work in RE.

This week we have been completing our rain forest projects. We created posters using facts we found on the chrome books.

In maths we have continued learning about fractions. Today we learnt about equivalent fractions, Improper fractions and mixed fractions.

In writing we have been writing our persuasive letters. It is amazing to see how far the children have come.

In RE we used a diamond nine activity to discuss what we thought should be the actions and behaviours of a Christian.

This half term we have focused highly on our planet and looking after our planet. The children have discussed plastic waste and deforestation. It was so lovely to see how passionate the children were about caring for our world.

Don’t forget the home learning project. The class blog is separate to class page. Spellings, letters and other important information can be found on our class page on the school website. Be sure to check.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Week beginning:4/2/19

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her continual effort to apply taught skills to new learning. She is always reflecting and trying to improve.

This week in Maths we have begun to look at fractions. We discussed a hundredth and linked it to learning we already know.

In writing we have been looking at why we should recycle plastic bags and clingfilm. We have been writing subordinate and relative clauses.

In DT we have designed our rainforests and begun to build them.

In Science we have been investigating habitats in our local environments and comparing to a rainforest.

Next Friday, after school, we would like to invite parents in, once children have been collected, to see some of our learning this term. If you can not make it, we will take lots of photos to add to our blog.

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for the junk model material.

Week Beginning 25/1/19

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for the pride she takes in her learning. I was so impressed looking through her book. Well done.

This week we have been working hard with solving more than one step word problems. The whole class have been so resilient with this. It has been tricky! 

Next week will be our last week for a while of normal home learning. We are going to be doing a project instead for a few weeks. More details coming. As maths was quite tricky I will send home an example on Thursday and some questions that are similar for you to try with your child. They may need supporting with this. 

In writing we have began our own adventure stories. These are linked to the Amazon Rainforest and are now completely independent. I can not wait to see the published versions. 

We are going to be making some shoe box Rainforests. Could you please donate any old shoe boxes. I know you have already done this for our other projects so I will try my best to source some spares for those struggling. 

In Geography we have been learning about longitude and latitude and the meridian line. We will explore this more next week.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Well done to our pupils of the week this week. They were chosen for applying skills from previous learning to new learning.

The children have had a wonderful week this week. I am so proud of the focus they have shown, and their attitudes towards their learning. I have attached some photos.

In maths we have been learning about division and using different methods. The children have become so much better are sharing their methods and discussing their reasoning.

In writing we are innovating a finding story. The children have been learning how to write effective dialogue and how to build suspense.

In RE we created a conscience Alley and two children were selected to play Judas, the other children pretended to be Judas’s conscience telling him why he should and why he should not betray Jesus. We discussed why Jesus knowing he would be betrayed, did not stop Judas.

Spellings and times tables have been uploaded onto the class page. Please ensure children are bringing in their reading logs daily. I keep asking the children but they are not always bringing them in for me to sign.

The children loved their reward, the film we watched was perfect, it explored global warming, environmental change and positive and negative effects humans have as the main character, a turtle, ventured around the world.

I hope you have a lovely weekend,
