Problem Solving

This week in English pupils have been writing their own kennings while in maths they have been calculating perimeter of regular and irregular polygons. In art the pupils evaluated their clay dinosaur project identifying things that worked well and things that they would do differently to improve their work.

On Tuesday we took part in a problem solving workshop that encouraged pupils to work in teams to solve different mathematical puzzles.

Homework

We will be sending homework home in a two weekly cycle. The date the homework will be discussed with the children will be identified followed by a description of the task. A maths challenge will also be included as a verbal fun task, this does not need to be recorded.

 

Monday 11th February 2019

Maths: We have begun exploring perimeter. We know that when we measure perimeter we are looking at the distance around a closed shape. Draw 2D shapes using a ruler and work out the perimeter.

Maths challenge: Hit the button 2, 5, 10, 3 times tables

Friday 15th February 2019

C&E: We have been looking at what it means to be part of a community and belonging. Make a poster that describes the positive effects of being part of a community.

Maths challenge: Say the three times tables while in tree pose. Practise this for both legs at least four times this week.

 

Friday 22nd February 2019

A&C: Create a collage of all the things you’ve done over the half term. This could include photos, drawings, captions, messages, key words/phrases. You can be as creative as you like with your creation, thinking about the shape and detail of your collage.

Maths challenge: Say the three times tables backwards on five different pieces of equipment at the park.

 

Please can we have homework books back by Friday 1st March 2019. If it is completed before this date please feel free to hand it in.

Sculptures

This week in English we have been using our knowledge of dinosaurs, learned in place and time, to write our own non-chronological reports, while in maths we have been exploring perimeter. In art we have been using clay to sculpt our own dinosaur.

Perpendicular and parallel lines

This week in English we have been thinking about language and sentence types to help us finish our version of The Tunnel. In maths we have explored different lines that can be found in shapes while in PE we have been developing our core strength allowing us to hold balances for longer.

Shape and angle detectives!

This week in English we have been planning a story and retelling the beginning of a familiar story, while in maths we have been looking at angles in 2D shapes, using a right angle checker to help us identify the type of angle. In art we have been exploring ways we can manipulate paly-dough or clay.

 

Homework

We will be sending homework home in a two weekly cycle. The date the homework will be discussed with the children will be identified followed by a description of the task. A maths challenge will also be included as a verbal fun task, this does not need to be recorded.

 

Friday 18th January 2019

Art: We have begun to explore playdough and clay in preparation for creating a sculpture. We learnt the word malleable. Discuss the word further with the child. Find and list other materials that are also malleable i.e. dough for bread/pizza making.

Maths challenge: Hit the button 2, 5, 10, 3 times tables

Maths: We have been learning about perpendicular and parallel lines. Draw a picture that uses both types of lines and label them.

Maths challenge: Practise counting back in 3s.

Welcome back!

We’ve had a busy first week back and have settled in nicely. In English we’ve begun looking at the story ‘The Tunnel’ and created our own description using similes and expanded noun phrases. In maths we’ve looked at statistics focusing on bar charts while in topic we’ve begun our new unit looking at dinosaurs.

Eco writing

This week in maths we have been subtracting using the column method and regrouping hundreds and tens, while in English we have been writing our own fables linked to the environment. In topic we have retold the story of St Alban and in faith and belief we have continued to explore the story of Noah.

Christmas homework

Friday 07th December 2018

Design and make your own ‘Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar’. Remember to think about how many days there are for the Christmas advent and make sure each day has something different for someone in your family to do.

1

Tell someone you love them today.

2

Make someone laugh with a joke.

3

Play with somebody who looks lonely.

4

Help make lunch or dinner.

5

Do some yoga.

         
         

 

Friday 14th December 2018

Create your own word problems. Miss Gardiner and Miss Hind would like to be able to use the bar model to be able to solve them.

 

Please bring homework books back week beginning 17th December 2018.

What a week for crazy socks!!

This week in maths we have been regrouping ones and tens when adding two 3-digit numbers. In English we have been writing our own play scripts using a range of punctuation marks including brackets and colons while in PE we have been developing the skill of being able to pivot quickly, with a ball, so we can apply it to a game.

 

Thank you for all donations to help the PTA with the Christmas fair.
