In maths, we have been working hard to deepen our understanding of place value. Working with numbers to 1000, the children used hands-on resources to find 10 and 100 more and less than a number.
As World Cup fever swept through school, the children were tasked with creating their very own World Cup trophy as part of their homework project. We were blown away with what they produced!
In maths, the children have been learning to measure, compare, add and subtract capacity in millilitres and litres. The children got ‘hands on’ with their concrete resources to help them to better understand the concept.
As part of our geography lesson, the children made the ‘Ring Of Fire’ using the amazing volcanoes they had created for their homework project. Then, children worked together to label key countries and oceans. Great Geography!
As part of our English lesson, the children planned and re-enacted a scene from our class novel: Fantastic Mr Fox. The children loved watching their scenes on the big screen and made suggestions as to how they could have been improved.
As part of our Sports Relief Day in school, the children showcased their fitness levels by completing a challenging circuit which includes some super skipping!
To enrich the children’s experience of art, we visited the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield where we took part in a wet-felting workshop. The designs were inspired by those of Barbara Hepworth herself.
As budding scientists, the children formed their own basic skeletons using dog bones, and labelled some of the main bones whist learning about their different functions.
In PE, the children have been learning to create their own small-sided games. They were challenged to form a set of rules, and consider a points system. Who knows… we might see one of the games in the Olympics one day!
