As we reached the end of this half-term, we managed to catch our breath and think about all we had achieved and learned over the last seven weeks.
We also thought about what we had to look forward to during the next half-term. We can't wait for our concert, trip to Creswell Crags and taster days with our new classes.
Have a great holiday.
This week, we've continued our work on decimals and fractions. The children have used number-lines to help but this giant number-line with hopping bunnies and two rabbit holes proved really useful when introducing the concept.
There wasn't a Gold Book Assembly this week so we had a mini presentation in class. Well done to these two, who will be on the golden table at lunchtime on Monday.
The children really appreciated the opportunity to welcome some parents and other family members in to school to launch their Tribal Tales topic with a craft afternoon. I'm sure that people living in the Stone Age would have welcomed shelter in structures as carefully designed as these.
This week our maths work has focussed on division and in order to get a deeper understanding, we have used manipulatives such as counters, bricks and even pencils.
This week we have done some weaving. We used a picture of a mountain and wove pieces of coloured paper into the picture to create an effect of mist in front of the mountains.
We have been working really hard on our presentation this week in Class 3 to try and earn a pen license. We have done some lovely writing about mountains and practising our skills including learning how to correctly identify paragraphs.
