Hands-on Maths Learning

Troy, Liam, Lacey and Harley produced some beautiful work in maths today. They used multi-link cubes to develop their understanding of what volume is and how we can calculate it. I was very impressed with the mathematical language they used and by the end of the lesson we had achieved gold standard. Great work guys!

Going for Gold! Green is great!

This week in Nursery the children have been working together to halve an amount! We used our smiley faces to help us remember what we are aiming for. The. children worked together using lots of different activities to show their understanding of halving amounts to ten and twenty! The language of learning in the classroom has been amazing this week. Well done Nursery!

“If a friend doesn’t know how to do something we can help them. So if they can’t read a number 6 or 7 we can show them.” Cohen

We’re bonkers about bread!

This afternoon, Class 6 mixed, kneaded and constructed some headgehog shaped bread. We all had a wonderful time. They are currently baking in my oven and making my kitchen smell beautiful! I can’t want for us all to try it tomorrow with some butter and jam!

Thanks to Harry for awesome photography and capturing me in my element!

Well done to you all for following the instructions so well! 🙂

My brilliant Year 1’s…

Emily- Rai, Ellie, Ryan and Ruby all have dedicated their choosing time and time at home to write their own version of ‘The Tadpole’s Promis’ by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross. They have blown me away with how hard they have worked and I’ve loved that they love the book as much as I do! If any of you out there haven’t read it – do! It’s brilliant with one crazy twist!

Fantastic writing!

Today in class 4 we looked at our writing and decided how we could improve it. We came up with a checklist of things to remember:

  • finger spaces
  • full stops
  • capital letters
  • lots of interesting words!

Here are just a few examples of the work we produced using our checklist! Miss Hughes and Mrs Lake were blown away with how hard every child has been trying this week! Keep it up class 4!
