This week in Captain Cook’s Class ……….

In maths we have been learning how to count in twos, fives and tens.
We have been grouping objects into two’s, fives and tens and practising counting in different steps.

We noticed patterns on the 100 square.

In English  we have been learning a non-fiction text about the Retford Ridge-back Dragon.
We have been imporving our reading and comprehansion skills in Guided reading this week.
Here we are working with out partners to find the answers to questions about the text.

We were trying to be detectives and had to underline the answers in the text.

We had a fabulous day at Lincoln Castle on Thursday. Thank you to the helpers for coming with us.

Here we are taking part  in lots of fun activities at Lincoln Castle.

There is a write up about our trip on the school website. Take a look at what we got up to.
We all behaved very well and enjoyed a very sunny, fun day out.

Here we are planting out onions.

We are taking part in the school competition run by Carr Hill Gardening Club. Last year we had to grow potatoes, this year it is onions!
We are hoping that our home-made bird scarers will help to stop the birds eating our onions! Thanks to Ruben for coming up with the idea of needing a scarecrow!  Fingers crossed we might grow some great onions!

This week in Captain Cook’s Class ……….

We have been working on our phonics this week and made a fantastic split digraph wheel.
We need to work on reading and spelling words with split digraphs.

Don’t forget our little rhyme to help us with our long vowel sounds!

Here we are making our split digraph wheels.

Make sure you use them at home!!

In English we have been using our boxing in sheet to help us describe our own imaginary dragon!
We have worked very hard to improve our writing, practicing on whiteboards helps us because if we make a mistake we can correct it quickly.
Here we are practising our dragon descriptions.

In maths we have been working on tens and ones in two digit numbers to 50 and beyond!
Here we are using whole part pictures to show how we can split a two digit number.

This week in Captain Cook’s Class ……….

In maths this week we are learning about Place Value – numbers to 50/100, what order they are in, and practising counting forwards and backwards to 100.
We made our own number lines. We had to cut up a 100 square and put it back together in a long line, we had to look carefully at the numbers to make sure they were in the correct order!
Here we are showing you our number lines. We really enjoyed this challenge!

In English we have been trying to improve our writing. Thinking really hard about our handwriting and punctuation. We have used our boxing in work to help us write about a familiar dragon form ‘Tell  me a Dragon’ story.
We then used our own dragon drawings and made another boxing up sheet that will help us describe our imaginary dragon!

We came up with lots and lots of  great ideas together. They are on our washing line in the classroom to help us next week when we write our own descriptions of our dragon.
We have worked hard on adding colour to our dragon drawings. We have used special watercolour pencils.
Keep a look out for some of  them in our classroom next week!
