We have had a brilliant first week back, yesterday we went on a trip to Haynes Motor Museum! Some of us got to go in the cars, some of us dressed up and we all had to try and fit in ONE CAR!! We did it! 28 Cherries in one Cadillac! We had lots of fun looking at all the cars and Miss Barker was really proud of our behaviour.

In Literacy this week we ripped up coloured paper and wrote our holiday news on the strips. In Numeracy we have been learning about Tally Charts, we looked at our favourite fruits and how we got travelled to school. We turned the data into a bar chart. We decided this made it easier to read the information.

We have been learning a new way to solve multipliction problems, it is called arrays. We investigated the 5 times tables using this method of columns and rows.

On Monday we discovered something in our playground...MRS ARMITAGE'S BIKE!! There was a complete tool kit, a bell, a horn, 2 umbrellas, some cushions, some bunting and some soap! but no Mrs Armitage! There were two witnesses which we wrote questions for and then we hotseated the witness (Miss Barker, Ben and Laurie!)

Yesterday we had a power cut, that meant we had to go to lunch early and the packed lunches had to eat in the classroom. It was a bit tricky to do learning with no lights or computers, but we managed.

This morning we have been using different mediums to create pictures of vehicles, they are looking great.

We are excited to perform our dance on Wednesday morning AND afternoon, if you have any spare tights at home they would be greatly appreciated!

 

w/b 9/12

This week we have been extremely busy! We have been practicing our dance until it is perfect and on Wednesday we travelled to Ashton Park Secondary School to perform it, we were up first so had a tough job! We also performed to parents and carers in the afternoon (that's a lot of dancing!)

We also used all of our Numeracy skills to complete an independent challenge, making as many number sentences as we could.

We have been learning about the story of Adam and Eve this week, it is in the Christian Bible and also in the Jewish Torah. We thought about what the message of the story could be and came up with really thoughtful responses.

Today we have been learning about Chinese New Year, we have been making Chinese Dragons! They are amazing! (See some pictures below for us making them)

We will be very sorry to say goodbye to Mrs Armitage, we have enjoyed having her around, but we are already looking forward to our new topic... THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT!
