It's the end of another week and, despite being cold, what a lovely one it's been!
This week, a number of the children found themselves in the 'learning pit' during Maths. We were learning how to use short multiplication and two different methods for division. Although it was tricky, everyone was able to climb out of the pit and make progress in their understanding! Some children used manipulatives to help them, others worked with each other and some were supported in a guided working group with an adult. Well done, Ash Class, for your hard work.
In English, the children enjoyed researching their chosen inventor and writing their 'Inventor's Portfolio'. They used some of the features we have learning about (such as fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases) to enable them to include lots of information in a relatively short piece of writing.
Do you know the difference between an asteroid, comet, meteor and meteorite? Ash Class can explain it to you. What was everyday life like for the Anglo-Saxons? What did they eat? What jobs did they do? What were their houses like? More things that we have learnt this week! On top of this, we've made sure we've kept active in our Real PE session with myself and gymnastics with SAINTS.
Does your child take part in a club? We have a great variety of clubs happening this term so please do book spaces onto these.
Next week, we will have both indoor PE and Forest School on Tuesday. Please could children wear PE kits to school but bring their Forest School clothes to change into.
Have a great weekend!
