Exploring Materials!

This week the children have enjoyed listening to the story Just Right for Christmas. They have then retold the story and explored language they can use to describe the scene which they can then use  in their own story which they will write later this term.

The children in maths have continued to explore multiplication problems.

They have also carried out an experiment in Science where they had to test different materials to see which would be the most waterproof to use to make a hat for a giant.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

The children enjoyed a whole day focusing on science, technology, engineering and maths. They began by exploring different materials that they could use to make a parachute. They thought about which would be the strongest and why.

The children then designed what their parachute would look like and what materials they would use for each section. They then made their product and tested it. After this they evaluated their design and thought about what they liked, disliked and what they would do to improve it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Anti-Bullying Week!

The week started off with the children wearing their odd socks for anti-bullying week. We talked about what bullying may look like and what we could do if we thought we saw this happening.

We discussed how we can include everyone as much as possible everyday and show kindness. We linked this to our worship as well by thinking about how would God want us to show love.

In English we have enjoyed writing stories and then publishing them.

In maths we have continued to look at problems which involve finding fractions of an amount.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Spelling fun!

The children in maths have enjoyed finding 1/4, 1/2 and 1/3 of amounts. It would help the children if they continued practicing this at home.

In English the children have been planning their own story in the style of the Smartest Giant in Town. We are looking forward to reading their stories after they have written them next week

In spelling we have been practicing how to spell our common exception words in lots of fun ways. Our words this week are:

would, should, could, people, clothes, because

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

A busy first week back!

Welcome back after a lovely half term break.

The children have got straight back into their learning with a positive attitude this week.

In maths they began with investigating a problem which involved measure using play doh. The children worked together to decide how they would solve it.

They then moved onto finding fractions of shapes. The children have focused on finding 1/4, 1/2 and 1/3 of shapes.

In Science the children enjoyed looking at how the habitats change outside during Autumn. The children talked about how and why the leaves change colour from Summer to Autumn.  They then collected different leaves and made art work with them.

Well done to all the children that have taken part in a charity walk over the past couple of months! We are so proud to see our children raising money for other people.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
