Celebrations Commence

In literacy we have been turning boring seasonal sentences into more exciting sentences using connectives and conjunctions. In numeracy we have been using arrays and repeated addition to work out multiplication calculations. We have also been transferring our art work onto the IPAD.

Frustrating Fractions!

We have worked hard in maths looking at finding a fraction of a shape and a number. It hasn’t been easy but with determination we have begun to understand that to find a fraction we need to share an amount. In literacy we have been reporters. Working with a partner we have written and amended an article about Grace Darling. In art we completed our own pictures in the style of David Hockney.





Money Money Money!

This week we have been making different amounts using money. In literacy we have been planning a newspaper report about Grace Darling. In art we have been creating our own journey pictures based on the work of David Hockney. Make sure you look out for some of Scarlet Classes art work in the Community Room.

Rounding up, rounding down, rounding up all around

This week in literacy we have been turning two words into one word using an apostrophe such as it is = it’s.  Children had fun finding and rounding numbers to the nearest 10 or 100 in our shared area.

Write, Write, Write

This week the children have been focusing on punctuation, writing sentences with capital letters and full stops. In maths they have been making pictograms.

The children looked great today and were extremly happy to meet Pudsey and the Rickshaw Challenge Riders.

This week the children have been busy telling the time. In literacy they have been sequencing stories and using time words. Both Crimson and Scarlet class had lots of fun on Friday at Samuel Ryder School. Finding out about how the ‘Stunt Bunny’ books came about and hearing about Tamsyns real life pets was great.
