Spelling Stars!

Well done to these children who got all of their spellings right today:


Making bread

In Food Technology this morning we worked with Mrs Paton-Devine to make bread rolls.

First we had to put on our aprons and wash our hands.

Then we kneaded our dough for ten minutes to make it rise.  It was importnat to remember not to hold it in our hands as our hands are too hot and this would make it sticky.

Mrs Paton-Devine showed us how to shape our dough into two different rolls. 

When we had shaped our dough we placed it on a try.  The trays had oil on them so that the dough would not stick to it.

The dough was covered over with a cloth.  Mrs Paton-Devine explained that this was to give the dough chance to rise.

When it had risen, Mrs Paton-Devine cooked it in the oven.  It looks delicious!

Challenge poster

We have a new challenge poster in our classroom.  If you have an answer to any of the problems, write it on a post-it note with your name on and stick it on the poster.

Halving shapes

In Maths this week we are learning about halving.

Yesterday we learned that to half something means to split it into two groups.  However, the groups must be same size.

We looked at different shapes and talked about different ways to split them in half.  Some shapes could only be split equally in one way but for others there was more than one option.

We then folded our shapes carefully in half and coloured in one half of them.

Super Spellers!

Well done to these children who got 100% in their spelling test today.

This week in Maths we have been focusing on place value and subtraction.

We looked at different ways of representing numbers.  We are very good at recognising how many tens and ones are in a number and we can show this in many different ways.

We started off by looking at a ten frame.  We used these to make different numbers.

We then moved on to showing our numbers with diennes.  We used these to solve subtraction problems.

In Music this week we have been learning about high and low pitched sounds.

We learned a chant about a bear and and a bird and added actions to show that the bear made a low pitched growling sound and the bird made a high pitched tweeting sound.

Then we listened to a piece of music from China.  We identified the high pitched and low pitched sounds in it.  We found out that it told the story of a crab (low pitched) and a bird (high pitched)

Then we sorted instruments into high and low pitched sounds.  We played the instruments to accompany the story whilst the rest of the class clapped and tapped out a beat.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning about The Three billy Goats Gruff story in our English lessons.  Every lesson has begun with a daily retell of the story using our story map.  We have been focusing on putting capital letters and full stops in the right places.

Thanks to Hakim's family who donated some puppets and masks, we started our lesson a little differently today.  We used the props to aid our retelling.

At the start of the week we thought about improving the story to make our own version.  We boxed up the text and came up with some ideas for new characters and problems.

We then made some story maps to show what would happen in our new version of the story.

Our new characters are Three Fluffy Cats and a Nasty Crocodile.  We worked on character description by working in groups to generate adjectives to describe the new characters.  Tomorrow we are going to put our ideas into amazing sentences!
