Learning this week-17th March

March 17th, 2017

It’s been a busy week this week. In English, we have been looking at creating a short writing piece based on an inanimate object.  We have been using our knowledge of natural disasters to create our draft- ready for writing next week.

In maths, we have been focusing on 2d and 3d shapes and identifying  their properties.  We have moved onto angles now and have been using our knowledge of angles in triangles, quadrilateral, straight lines and around a point to solve some tricky SAT’s questions. Next week, we will be recapping area and perimeter.

It was lovely to see so many parents at parents evening this week. Of anyone was unable to make it, feel free to make another appointment.

Don’t forget it’s our bring and adult to school on Tuesday apfternoon-1.30.

Have a great weekend.

What a busy week we have had. In English, we completed out writing assessment using DADWAVERS to structure our writing. It’s safe to say that the children have used lots of writing techniques to describe their Blitz picture.  We have now moved onto biographies, using Anne Frank as a focus. We played a game of guess who to identify all the features of biographies to generate a success criteria. Next week, we will be moving onto planning our own biography, writing it later on in the week.

In maths we have hadecided a focus around fraction. We have learnt to change mixed numbers and in proper fractions, find equivalent fractions, simplify fractions and even add mixed numbers.  Next week, we will be using our knowledge to solve some tricky fractions SAT’s questions  before moving onto percentages.

We have been continuing with our record breaking reading- this week’s focus was ‘Ice Man’. Next week’s will be a really interesting one!!

Revision home work has also been sent home. Please can this be completed by Friday.

Have a good weekend. See you all Monday.

Maths Project

January 15th, 2017

What a great success our final WW2 maths project turned out to be. The children did us proud as they prepared six full meals – starters, mains and puddings, for our parents. From soups and broths to potato fritters and egg-less sponges, the children really have used all their mathematical skills and sound knowledge of WW2 rationing to pull of such a great afternoon.
