WC 8th October
This week we have been learning all about perimeter in maths, ask your child whether they can remember what it is. We worked out the perimeter of different shapes, first by using art straws to help then we moved onto using a ruler to help us measure in cm.
In English the children planned their own fable, innovating their own version of 'The Hare and the Tortoise'. I can't wait to read them next week!
On Friday Mr Wilson reported some strange bone shaped things in the garden when he was clearing up ready for 'Green Day' next week. We used facts and clues to help us figure out what and who they were from. Keep your eyes peeled...
WC 1st October
This week we have been focusing on 2D shapes in maths, and the children have learnt how to use a protractor to find right angles.
In English we have continued our work on fables, we 'hot seated' the Hare and the Tortoise and worked together to find out the moral of the fable in groups. Next week we will begin to write our own version of 'The Hare and the Tortoise'.
The children are still enjoying Judo and Samba on a Monday and working on their athletics skills with Adele on a Wednesday.
Well done Kingfishers, another great week.
WC 24th September
Another great week working hard in class, the children have been adding and subtracting using mental strategies in maths. In English we have started looking at fables, the children made predictions about what they thought some of the fables could be about before actually hearing them.
We have been learning a harvest rap, ready to perform to the rest of the school next Friday during our harvest assembly. Some of the children wanted to practise at home so here are the words below!
WC 17th September
What an exciting first few weeks we have had back in school. The children have settled in really well and are quickly learning the new routines of being a junior! Well done children.
We have been really busy in Kingfisher class... from understanding place value in three digit numbers, to a visit from a dinosaur! We even have CCTV footage of it in our classroom...watch out!
The children have been working really hard in all areas. They have been enjoying PE with specialist teachers of Judo and Sports Hall Athletics. Our music lessons on a Monday afternoon with Mr Fitton are going down a treat. In maths the children have been working hard, looking at place value and rounding to the nearest 10. We are now moving onto finding 1, 10 and 100 more or less than a given number, and how to add and subtract numbers mentally. In English, the children are finalising their ideas for their own dinosaur poem and will be writing them very shortly. Our afternoons have been full of exciting activities learning all about different types of rocks and the layers of the Earth, and I'm sure that they have been having fun learning in Jigsaw with Mrs Clarke.
