With the temperature high, today was a great opportunity to use problem solving skills and investigate real world maths by taking the classroom outside. After recapping area and perimeter, 5C were tasked with measuring different parts of the playground – without any measuring equipment!
We prepared for our VE day celebrations by making cakes and sandwiches!
This term we looked at the painting process. We started by sketching pictures of flowers and then thinking about how we can show different shades of colour using chalk and charcoal. We then practised mixing colours carefully, before creating our final painting of a flower.
Today we have become geographers and used a key to identify features in Ladywell Park.
First we created our own key. We thought about everything that we would see in Ladywell Park and created our own symbols to represent these on a map.
After lunch, we went on a walk around Ladywell Park and used our key to draw the symbols on the map.
“It was fun mapping” – Edgar
“It was fun and when we had more items on the map it was easier to draw the pictures where the next place was” – Sapphire
“It was great because we had to draw symbols from the key onto the map” – Aaron
“It was fun as we walked around Ladywell and we were finding different things to draw on our map” – Taiwo
“It was a bit tricky to find where you were on the map because there was nothing on it. Now I could find where I was on my map. – Danny
“It was great working with my partner and I think that the walk was wonderful” – Adrian
“I loved making up symbols for the key and then putting them on the map” – Dominic
“My favourite part was when I saw my Daddy with my dog” – Wanda
This term in computing we helped Mr Bulpitt solve the mystery of the missing cake!
We received an email asking for help and began to investigate. We got some written information and audio clips with clues. Once we had collated all the information we put them into a spreadsheet.
Using the filters on Microsoft Excel we were able to identify the person and solve the mystery.
As we were sending and receiving emails we also talked about e-safety, particularly with emails. We thought of some top tips and created posters to let everyone else know how to stay safe on the internet and particularly when using emails.
Well done Nursery and Reception!
Thank you to the children in Year 5 for running the activities so brilliantly.
This Year children from 1B and 2S have been reading with each other every other Friday. We mostly shared our stories in the library but sometimes went to the hall to share our work too!
As today was our last time reading together we went to the hall to give our reading partners a letter/thank you message.
From all the children in 2S we would just like to say a really big thank you to 1B for being amazing reading partners. We enjoyed sharing stories together and making new friends!
3B have been practising their blogging skills in their ICT lessons, learning about creating and editing posts. Here are some examples of posts that we made.
