This Week’s Bloggers

Friday 14th October

This week in maths we were learning about symmetry. We’re learning vertical and horizontal lines of symmetry. We did a worksheet that had houses on it and we needed to match them. We made symmetry shapes too and some are on the wall.

In science we played with magnets. We were trying to find out which objects stick to the magnets. We put magnets under the table and they moved metal things on the table. It was fun.

Our Titanic Models

Here are a few Titanic models we made for homework. In class we’re going to make Titanic models in groups and put our dazzle patterns on them. We finished watching the Titanic cartoon and it was great!

In writng we made a poster to get more children to walk to school. It keeps you fit and healthy. We had to do bright colours and huge writing.

Optical Illusions.

Friday 7th October

This week in art we designed some optical illusions to use for our Dazzle Ships. We did bumpy lines and straight lines. Everyone liked it and our pictures look great!

In maths we did a good test about directions but it was hard! We practised counting in 2s,3s, 5s and 10s. We really liked the ‘Singing Walrus’.

In P.E  We did egg roles and we had to use our tummy muscles. We are leaning about fitness.

This Week’s Bloggers

In maths we learnt counting in 3s and 4s. Our group are also adding one digit to 2 digit numbers like 34 + 3=37, 44+3=47, 54+3=57. Can you see the pattern?

In writing we had to write a poem about friends. We did it in groups of three and it was fun.

In science we’re learning about forces. We had to design a toy with a push, pull and twist. My toy is a pokeball that turns into a pokemon called Gaslay. Hollie’s toy is a toy duck. You pull a string to make it move. You push its wing and it quacks. You twist its head  and it moves.

In reading we fill in missing words and answer questions about the stories. We did worksheets in partners.

In writing we wrote about going on the Titanic. We had to think of a good story opener. Mine was: ‘Finally the Titanic appeared at the docks.’ Leah’s wrote that she was excited and nervous at the same time.

Problem Solving

Friday 9th September

In maths we are learning to solve word problems. Today  we did one about sharing.  It was about sweets.  There were four children and 24 sweets. How many sweets did each one get?  We drew the sweets and the people. Then we got the answer 6.

In P.E. we learnt to hit a ball with a tennis racket and work with a ball.

Nora’s group’s sentence was: The beautiful kangaroo jumped incredibly high into space and he went to explore. Alexei’s group’s was: The magic kangaroo jumped over the moon because it was very excited about a party.

In Science we are learning about forces. If you want something to move, you have to push, pull or twist it. We watched a video about forces and we moved some toys.

In maths we did number sums for our partner and they had to fill in the missing number. We played a game with dice and some people made a board game with adding and subtraction. We need to finish them.

Spelling Games

This week we practised our spelling. We played tic tac toe with our spelling words. In literacy we learnt about capital letters and full stops, question marks and exclamation marks. We did Kung Fu Punctuation and it was fun!

Today we’re singing a rap at the school assembly about resilience. We read a part of Fantastic Mr Fox.  We are Mr Fox’s children and we try to encourage Mr.Fox. It’s exciting!

Showing our Dance Moves

Friday 26th August

This week in P.E. we learnt a dance in the hall. It was easy because you had to do exercises and stretches. It was fun. We are also learning to track a ball in P.E. We are all getting better at catching the ball.

In reading we designed a book cover. We had to remember to draw a colourful picture and to write the author, the illustrator and the title. A lot of our book covers are up on the wall.

Making Repeated Patterns

In maths this week we have been learning about shape, colour, picture and number patterns. We are quite good at this. On Friday we had a biscuit problem to solve. It was difficult but we got it in the end. To get better at problem solving we need to remember ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’.
