Burying our Time Capsule

24th January 2020

We had a great end to our week today when we went off down to the woods to bury our Time Capsule as part of our IPC studies.  We all worked together to agree what things we should include.  The objects ranged from photographs of us all, some money, some house points and the latest school newsletter.  We are all hopeful the time capsule stays safely buried for many years to come.








Mathletics

Well done to Oscar who earned a Mathletics certificate this week.  We all spent a little time today using Mathletics and enjoyed 'live mathletics' challenges.  Let's see if everyone can get a certificate next week.

Data Handling

21st January 2020

We were all very excited to start our new unit in Maths today all about statistics when we heard that chocolate was involved.  We were given the task of drawing a tally chart to record the different coloured smarties in a tube.  Once the hard work had been done of sorting, counting, recording and analysing the results of course we all enjoyed eating the smarties!









Week Beginning 20th January


What will we be learning this week?

English:

  • Using apostrophes for contractions to show where letters are missing.  E.g. cannot - can't, he will - he'll
  • Learning the features for writing a postcard
  • Writing postcards.  If you have any postcards at home please do feel to send them in, we would love to share them
  • Continue reading our class text 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark'
  • Revising phoneme 'oa' and alternative graphemes: 'o_e', 'oe'
  • Adding -ing, -ed, -er, -est and y to words ending in -e with a consonant before it
Maths:
  • Continue to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.  As much practise as possible at home will really help with this
  • Starting our new unit of work on Statistics
  • Making tally charts to record the different colours of smarties in a tube (I'm sure we'll all enjoy eating smarties afterwards!)
  • Drawing and interpreting pictograms where 1 picture equals 1 unit
IPC:
  • Creating a time capsule all about our class.  We will work together to decide which 10 items we would like to include.  We will then collate these items and choose a suitable container
  • During our woodland session on Friday we will be burying our time capsule
Special events this week:
  • Woodland school on Friday.  Please ensure all children have their school tracksuit and outdoor coat in school.  They will also need wellingtons and their school winter hat.  It would be most beneficial if children could all bring a plastic bag for the muddy boots afterwards!
  • Saturday 25th is our School Open Morning 10.00-12.00.  You are all warmly invited to come along and enjoy lots of different activities across the school.  We would love to show your friends and families around.

Rainbow Reading Award

17th January 2020

I hope you all received the email regarding the 'Rainbow Reading Awards'.  All the children were very excited to come home with their booklets today to start working towards their Bronze award.  There was a real 'buzz' in the Reading Area of our classroom as the children busily found books they would like to read.
