We can't believe we are nearly at the end of Spring 1. It has been an amazing term with lots of exciting learning going on both in and out of the classroom.
Just a reminder, Homework is due in on Tuesday the 12th of February and will be marked over the half term.
We are continuing with our routines; Times Table Rock Stars and the Daily Mile and PE every Monday and Friday; please make sure you have your PE Kit, including spare socks, hair-ties and earring tape (or no earrings please).
Spellings are issued every second Thursday and we have a ‘check-up’ (test) every second Wednesday.
During our weekly Jigsaw sessions we have been learning about teamwork and how to plan to achieve our goals. We decided to work as a team to make Anglo-Saxon Jewellery using runes. We needed to listen to each other carefully and speak kindly. We shared our ideas and helped each other to write using runes. This week we will make the braided cord and reflect on how we worked as a group.
We are coming to the end of our Beowulf Unit and Mr Morris and I are both excited to read the Monster Stories created by the class. We have been learning about adding description using expanded noun phrases and simile/-ed/-ing sentence starters and some of the monsters are really scary! We are also learning to use speech sandwiches and to create a threat.
We are continuing our work with POWER MATHS this term. We have been learning about using written methods for multiplication and using part-whole models to divide large numbers. We have been using squares to count the area of a rectilinear shape and we are now investigating fractions and how they are represented.
During computing we have been working hard to create our own computer games using Scratch. Follow the link at the bottom of the page to see an example and maybe have a go at making one at home.
