What time is it?

What fabulous hard work from all of Class 7 this week. This week we recapped quarter past and quarter to and today moved on to telling time in 5 minute intervals. Your collaborative work was awesome and lead to some great learning. Well done guys. Keep up the hard work!

Mrs Jackson

WOW!  Well done to everyone who took the time to celebrate maths by photographing maths in our community!  We have some wonderful examples that I can’t wait to display around school.
Here are a few examples:
We will share more as the week goes on!
Wednesday’s maths challenge:
What does 100 grams look like?  Can you measure out 100g into a food bag and bring it to school?  Last year we looked at what 100 looks like and it will be great to compare 100 and 100g!
Don’t forget Friday’s maths challenge is our Maths Dress up day!  We are raising money for NSPCC and our target is £500!  We are asking for a donation of £1 (minimum).
Thank you once again for supporting our maths week!  We have started well!

How a penguin feels

Crew Rodgers had indoor PE today and, continuing with our Dance unit, listened to the Story of Penguin Small who was abandoned by his friends, chased by polar bears and cast adrift on the sea before being reunited with the rest of his colony. They shared their ideas of how he felt and developed movements to show these emotions. See if you can guess any of their interpretations. Miss Barker and I were very impressed by your work.

Impressive Life-Cycle Work in Crew Rodgers

How amazing are these plant life-cycle drawings produced in Crew Rodgers as part of our science case study? The children confidently used subject specific vocabulary to label each stage of the life-cycle and describe what was happening to the seed. Some of us could even talk about what dormant means and how this related to the state of the plant inside the seed case while it waits for the correct conditions to begin to grow. How very scientific we are! Move over Professor Sprout….Crew Rodgers are catching you up!

Day 1? We smashed it!

So impressed with how Crew Rodgers have returned to school after our 2 week break. We have completed our expedition and maths blast offs as well as re-establishing our class norms, setting ourselves individual HoWL targets, doing some quiet reading and making chickens to decorate our new farm themed classroom…..what a busy day!

Well done everyone…Great to have you back x

Move over Einstein!

How awesome was the learning in Crew Rodgers this morning in our Maths lesson? The children loved puzzling out our equations and really got to grips with regrouping. Our carpet looked like Einstein’s workshop! I only hope our lovely cleaning ladies will forgive us.
