PE day is Monday- children to wear their PE kit to school and stay in it all day.

Week 7

A very short week! The children have written some amazing instructions, finished the Iron Man book and wrote wonderful book reviews about it. It has been a pleasuring teaching the class this term. Have a great half term and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 3rd November (Monday is a TD day)

 

We also thought about all our learning this term and completed a quiz. The children came up with the questions themselves. The winning teams with 8 points were: Growlers, Question stoppers and Kitty team. 

Can you score better?

 

  1. In the Iron Man, where did the dragon come from?
  2. Who saw the Iron Man fall off the cliff?
  3. How many days did it take for the dragon to hatch out the star?
  4. What does 417+ 30=?
  5. Why did the Iron Man fall off the cliff?
  6. What was the first thing that the Iron Man did?
  7. Why do we do have to do a ‘reflect’ after maths?
  8. Why do Hindus celebrate Diwali?
  9. What can happen with magnets?
  10. How many Mr Stink books are there in our classroom?
  11. What is 699-30= ?

Week 6

We made dragon traps in English.

This week we have been working on addition and subtraction. We have been learning to exchange (which is when you are adding and you need to exchange your ones for a ten or tens for a hundred.)

For example 45+6

1. Add the 5+6= 11

2. Too many ones!

3. Exchange 10 ones for a ten so now it is 40+10

4. So 45+6= 51

 

We also made dragon traps in English. Next week we will be writing instructions for our dragon traps so other people can make them. 

 

In the afternoons we learnt about Diwali. We studied the story of Rama and Sita, looked at how Hindu children celebrate Diwali and then had a go at creating our own Rangoli patterns.

The children have been studying gravity paintings, like the ones by artist Paola Gracey.
Here is an example of one being made!

Week 2

 

Another great week in Seacole Class. Lots of children have been working on their tables as the Golden 72 scores were even better than last week. The children have been working hard to place numbers on a number line- all the way up to 1000! The children have also been taught a number line game that they could play at home.

 

We were also blown away by the spelling scores- the children really know their 'ou' than make an 'ow' sound. This week we are again looking at 'ou' but it makes an 'u' sound.

 

This weeks spellings are:

touch

double

country

trouble

young

cousin

enough

encourage

flourish

couple

Children's work

The children wrote about and made their own iron men as "The Iron Man" is our first book
Seacole wrote or drew about themselves and then chose their favourite to go on the wall

The children worked brilliantly on their first day. It was lovely to meet them properly and we had a great day together. 

 

We spoke about ourselves and what makes us unique and then the children described themselves on fingerprints, followed by drawing about themselves on a crest. The children chose which piece of work they were most proud of and that piece has gone on the wall.

 

In the afternoon, we spoke on Iron man, which is our first book. We thought about what the character might be like. The children wrote some wonderful ideas down in their books and then created their own Iron men to go on the wall. When we start reading the book we will see which ideas were correct!
