In Year 6 today we have been learning about the 2019 General Election. We spent some time looking at the manifestos of different parties and then have applied our measuring skills to build our own rosettes to wear when we visit our own polling station here at school on Thursday. We had to measure out the size of the ribbons for our rosettes and also used a compass to accurately draw a circle to match a given criteria (a certain diameter).
During this lesson, we learned about constellations. Then, we recreated one of the well-known constellations with spaghetti and marshmallows. Afterwards, we drew constellations onto black paper using chalk.
During our Year 2 Christmas Cafe, we read the story ‘The Christmas Jolly Postman’. Then we designed and made our own board games which included multiplication number sentences. It was great fun! Thank you to all the grown ups who came!
Year 3 have been looking at repeated patterns inspired by the Victorian artist, William Morris. They created observational drawings of flowers and leaves before embossing their designs into foam and printing them in a repetitive design.
Thank you so much to our Y6 pupils and their families for attending our Advent Pyjama Party Cafe! We read a Christmas story wore our pyjamas, had hot chocolate and made our own Christmas decorations from recycled paper.
Year 2 had fun making constellations out of marshmallows and spaghetti this afternoon!
Year 5 have enjoyed applying their learning with expanded multiplication and short division to written calculations this week, and have successfully investigated real world problems such as the price of grocery items. We have also begun to work with non-chronological reports in our English lessons, and have all taken on different responsibilities (manage, recorder, reporter, encourager) to collate key information from our model texts. We have just begun the autumn test cycle, so look forward to showing off what he have learned!
In Maths this year we have been revising place value and using base 10 to look at how many tens and ones in a number. After this, our teachers have taught us how to add and subtract using the column method. It’s been tricky but with determination, we’ve been able to succeed!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our recent cafe in year 1. We read a copy of ‘Traction Man’ by Mini Grey, before creating our own superhero car using loo rolls, split pins and coloured card.
In Maths the year 1 children have been working hard to begin to add up to 20 using various strategies. They have also had a go at problem solving through talk, our lesson involved describing or asking questions about a teddy bear for their partner to guess.
