We have had a really good week this week learning about road safety. We have had the emergency services in school and we were able to go out onto the playground and meet them. We had so much fun learning about what they do to keep us safe and we were even able to dress up in their uniform! The Air Ambulance flew past and we were able to wave to them which was so exciting. In class, we designed posters and went outside to measure how long it would take us to walk the distances on the leaflet. 100m took us 1 minute and 55 seconds!
English- We have started planning our stories about ‘The Ride of Passage’( ask us about this story). We are making sure we include lots of conjunctions such as but, when and because instead of using ‘and’ all the time.
Maths- We have been working very practically this week. We used Math equipment such as Numicon and Dienes to add two digit number together. We practised re grouping when crossing the tens boundary, using tens and ones which was a bit tricky! On Friday we used different coins to make the same amount. It was a very busy lesson but Mrs Robinson was very impressed with how much we knew amount money and how quickly we were able to make different amounts!
Olivia brought in her homework she completed over half term which was an amazing castle! It must have taken her a long time. She was able to tell the class all the features her castle had! Well done Olivia
Maths- This week we finished our block of learning about multiplication and division. At the end of the week we completed a ‘hot task’ to show Mrs Beardsall and Mrs Robinson everything we have learnt about multiplication and division over the past few weeks. On Wednesday, we started our work on fractions. We started learning about halves. We folded pieces of paper in lots of different ways to make two equal groups - it was lots of fun! On Thursday, we revised ‘place value’ with Mrs Robinson. We had a practical lesson making 2 digit numbers using equipment such as coins, straws, numicon, place value cards and counters. On Friday, we drew pictures to help us add two or three numbers together.
English- In English, we used our text maps which we drew last week with Mrs Robinson to write our non fiction report about the ‘Retford Ridgeback Dragon. We used our maps to help us remember the heading names and important spellings we might need.
We really enjoyed our music this week with Mrs Horner by making music to accompany the theme tune to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ .
In English this week, we wrote our recounts about our trip to Lincoln castle, using time words, wow words and key words. We used our planning sheets to help us remember all the fun things we did so we didn’t miss anything out!
In Maths, we have continued with division by sharing and grouping. With Mrs Robinson, we used these skills to help us solve words problems involving sharing.
In topic,we looked at materials, their properties and how this affects their uses.
In Phonics we looked at the alternative spellings for /or/ (a and augh. We also practised our spelling words for our Monday quiz.
