Super speech marks!

This week the children have been using speech marks in their writing. They have been working on using a new line for a new speaker. In maths we have been dividing using a blank number line. We have also been using our multiplication knowledge to help with dividing.

Halves and Doubles Adventure!

This week the children have been writing their own adventure stories based on a story by Anthony Brown. They have included good description, paragraphing and subordinate clauses.  In Maths they used their number knowledge to find halves and doubles of 2 digit numbers, focusing on odd numbers.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all. Thank you for your generosity at Christmas , we hope you all had a lovely break.

We understand there have been some issues with the Active Learn log ins for Amber class. We have reset them and tested  to ensure it now works.

This week we are writing similes and learning about time.

Homework is due in tomorrow, Friday 6th January.

Christmas fun

This week the children have been writing their own play scripts for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. They have included character and stage directions. All of the children really enjoyed their trip to the pantomime yesterday.

Homework will go out on Monday for the Christmas Holiday.

Two for a pound

This week the children have been learning about the features of a play script. In maths they have continued to use the grid method and trailing zero to multiply. Yesterday we had our charity fundraising sale. The children sold lots of the bird feeders and watering cans. All of the money is going towards our Hope UK project.


Describing and Multipling

In maths this week the children have really impressed us with their multiplication skills. They have been using different jottings and methods to solve them. This week in literacy we have been practising our descriptive writing for the story ‘Coming Home’ from this years Waitrose Christmas Advert. The children have described a robin and began to edit their work.

Sustainability Week

This week we have been very busy, we enjoyed learning about food miles on Monday. The children have been finding out about their charity project and have made some watering cans and bird feeders which we will be selling at some point next week.


The Catch

This week the children really enjoyed using a short film , called The Catch, to inspire their own writing in literacy. In maths they have been learning how to measure angles using protractors, recognise right angles and locate parallel and perpendicular lines.

Homework has been sent home today and will be due in on Friday 2nd December.

Money Sense

This week the children have been learning about 2D shapes in maths. They have also had a visit from NatWest bank for a money sense workshop. During the workshop the children thought about ‘Needs and Wants’ , being responsible and saving and sharing money. In literacy the children have been writing a new ending for a story.img_0511 img_0508

Can you solve it?

This week in maths we have been solving number sentences using our mental maths. We have been using jottings to show how we got to the answer. In literacy we have been revisiting subordinate clauses and using them to write a short story. We started looking at our focus picture for our art project this week and we all really enjoyed looking closely at the different characters.
