We had great fun creating realistic self-portraits. We started with a cross in the middle of our paper to help us put our eyes, nose and mouth in the right place. We then had to add in our ears and hair. To finish it off we had to create a zentangle design around the endless of our portrait.
This week we revised our contractions. Contractions are the way we can shorten a word using an apostrophe, for example they are = they’re. We worked on them outside because the weather was so nice. We used chalk to record our answers and wrote them on the pavement. We shared our learning at the end!
We learnt all about Rights and Responsilibites. We talked about the differences and how they both affect each other. We then worked in pairs to outline the differenes and the links between them both. We then had to present our posters to the class and share our leanring!
Today, some of the children went to Lochend Park to release the frogs into the loch. We have looked after the tadpoles and watched them transform into frogs over many weeks. Whilst we were at the park we also saw some cygnets and swans and enjoyed feeding all the birds.
We also loved performing at the Garden Party! We have been singing our French songs all week long 😀
This week we had lots of fun with NYCOS, we learned all about rhythm using a parachute! We had to move the parachute up and down following the rhythm of a song and then move places if our number was called out. It was really helpful having a fun way to remember what the words rhythm and beat mean!

This week we have been busy writing stories, working independently on maths, using the different strategies we have learned this year, and adding lots of detail to our drawings.
Maths – it was really good doing cheating with tens. If the last digit of a number was 8 or 9 you could add or take-away 10 then add or take-away the difference. Having 30 to do was a lot of work but fun. (Miller)
We were doing near doubles which was good and we learned a new game using dice. (Cammy)
PE – we got to choose what we would like to do, like rounders, basketball, football, tennis, parachutes or hula hoops. We all played a parachute game together at the beginning. It was a cool game. I liked it. (Lainey)
Literacy – it was good writing the sentences and having to add the speech marks to them. (Ella)
Art – drawing the pictures was good. Everyone got to choose their own things to draw and drew lots of people in the park or beach. You could add people on swings or walking dogs. Or the ocean and an ice cream van. We had to add lots of detail. We have so much detail we still need to finish them. (Charlotte)
This week in maths we were rounding numbers to the nearest 10 & 100. We played a dartboard game on Top Marks. We did well.
We met our new teacher on Wednesday and we coloured in bunting to make the class library look colourful.
One of our classmates made a PowerPoint about Smiggle and it was interesting.
In P.E. we did a mushroom game, football and tenni. We loved it.
On Thursday we did a talent show. I sang ‘Happy’ (Justin) and Leah did a dance with Millie D.
We need to get better at capital letters and full stops.
Justin and Leah

Harrys target is to get better in pe .
We held a 1+2 curriculum evening to inform the school community about our recent trips to France and Spain. During the evening parents, carers and children had the opportunity to visit different stations and discuss activities we learnt about on our trips and then had the opportunity to try them out themselves. Thank you to those who came along to discuss the activities that we had on show. Below are some quotes from parents and carers who attended;
“Great to see all the interesting and interactive ways of teaching languages.”
“Fantastic stuff, really impressed. Keep up the good work.”
“Lots of fun resources and games that must make learning easier.”
“Great to see the variety of teaching methods being used in the classroom to engage the children.”
