Towers, turrets and tunnels
Fancy some extra home learning? Can you write 2 multiplication number sentences for each array?
A nice relaxing afternoon, drawing, improving and painting our dragons.
In Science this week, we have been designing and making a home for a pet. We had to think of the survival needs of each animal and even came up with a special feature.
Multiplication is so much fun! We have been exploring how to make equal groups.
We had a very chilled out topic lesson, we used our skills from paper weaving and tried our hand at cloth weaving. Lots of us found it hard, but we didn't give up. We practised and finally produced some lovely weaves.
For some extra maths lesson, try out these two-step questions about money. If you would like a sheet for the weekend then Miss Godfrey will have some at the end of the day.
Last week, we came up with a scientific question for our class experiment. This week we became scientists and answered our questions. Which drinks are the healthiest? We measures sugar in; water, water with juice, fruit juice, smoothie, energy drink and pepsi. It was a fascinating experiment.
Have a go at this money problem. Maybe your adult will let you play around with their money.
Take fire and aim! Yes, our DT lesson was all about making catapults.
We've been trying to improve our story 'Kassim and the Greedy dragon' by adding speech. We started the lesson by choosing cards and reading out the speech. We had to change our voices to match how it had to be said.
We've started our art project. We are learning to weave. We started by learning a weaving song then moved on to weaving paper. Everyone had a good try.
In Maths this week, we are still learning about money. Today we have been learning about finding the difference between two amounts. We found out that we could either count on from the smallest number or count backwards from the biggest number.
We have had a few weeks with the new computers and we are getting really good. We can attach the mouse, turn on, log in and open up our program. We have been designing and creating a castle this week. We talked with our partner about what a castle would need then used different shapes to make. We also learnt about improving our design and making it better.
We have been looking at our new text 'Kassim and the Greedy Dragon' this week. We have learn the story and now, we are picking away at all the wonderful language. Today we were looking at verbs and sorting them into present and past.
Really cool videos for learning your timetables
BREAKING NEWS!! Both dragon eggs have hatched and both dragons have fledged. Keep a look out to see if you can spot them.
Today, we got into character and became Kassim, Mum or the dragon from our next text. We've got some fantastic actors in our class.
Music is lots of fun this term. We are looking at not just singing but movement. In this song we are experiences two kinds of beats, but we aren't thinking too much about that, we're just having lots of fun doing it.
Golden time has started with a bang! We've got some lovely new toys to play with. We love the football and we can't get enough of our dragons. There has been lots of extra writing and drawing.
Here are some of our class using the new computers. We've been using paint to design and create a house. Next week we will be creating a castle.
If you have any old pieces of cloth, wool or clothes you are about the throw away, please bring them in. Next week we will be trying our hand at weaving and we need all the material we can find.
Is washing your hands important? We think so, and we have the science to back it up. This week we conducted an experiment to see how germs can spread. It was very enlightening.
P.E will be on a Monday morning and a Tuesday afternoon this term. Please can you make sure P.E kits are in school.
They will be placed in the big plastic boxes so we can keep our classroom tidy.
This is a call out for any junk that might be lying around your house.
We have started a modelling station in our class in the hope of building a class castle. If you have any cardboard boxes, plastic boxes, tubes or anything that looks great for building with bring them into class.
Let's get building!!
