First sewing lesson!

Today we were learning some sewing skills in D&T to prepare us for making our own special object container. I was very impressed by the persistence and determination showed by everyone, even when we were finding it a little tricky … Miss Q included!

Book trailers!

Today we recorded book trailers for our favourite book out of Jason and the Voyage to the edge of the World and The Story Thief. The chidlren chose music to put to their trailors and I am really impressed with the way that they used their voices dramatically!

20150420-114405.jpgToday in out Literacy warm up, we were trying to start sentences with  – ing words to make our sentences seem more exciting. Thanks Sam D, George W, Celi and Gaby for your examples. Can you think of anymore?

Excellent effort in problem solving!

I am so impressed with the effort all of you put into your maths today. You identified patterns and some of you could even give a reason for those patterns! Here is some of the amazing work I saw …

Here are the children working really hard:

Showing how a character is feeling in a story

Yesterday, we were focusing on how you can show how a character is feeling by their actions and body language. Some children re told the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and tried to show how Jack was feeling scared through his body language.

How have they shown that Jack is scared? Well done Ewan and Zahara!

Problem Solving in Maths

In Maths yesterday, some children found the problem solving very tricky. They had clue cards relating to place value which helped them find out which letter represented each number. Well done to Celi, Ruby and Millie who found it tricky yesterday but persevered and managed to complete it today!

Pip’s Machine

20150414-152158.jpgPip created an amazing machine at home! She used a rotary lever to keep all her dolls clothes safe, and to help choose which ones they should wear! Well done Pip, I think it looks amazing! What does everyone else think?

Rounding Decimals

Today in Maths we were working on rounding decimals to the nearest tenth or hundredth. We played dominoes to help us practise our skills. Some people were inventing their own game with blank dominoes!

Problem solving using place value and rounding!

In Maths today, everyone chose the work that was best for them. Some people chose to solve a problem using their place value skills. They found it tricky and some are still solving it! Others chose to practise their rounding skills. Everyone worked very hard!

Here is a link to the rounding game from today if you would like to play at home :
