In history, we have been learning about how historians discover facts about the Stone Age. They dig up evidence such as bones and tools to make guesses. Today we passed around some real life flint stones which were used as tools in the Stone Age.
We have kick started our maths learning this morning by exploring different ways to represent simple multiplication calculations. Here we are putting people in houses and using our times tables knowledge to help work it out.
P.E. days for Rowling class for this term are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that you bring your P.E. kit on these days.
Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a restful holiday and look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
At break time on Monday those of us with welly boots were able to go outside to play in the snow. We enjoyed making snowmen!
Have a go at our ‘Extreme Earth’ quiz. Make sure you comment on this blog post to let us know how you did!
In maths we have been using a new resource called Cuisenaire rods. We explored the size and shape of them by building a ‘staircase’ with them, playing guessing games and making our number pairs to 10.
On Tuesday we were very lucky to be invited to Year 4’s Clarinet concert. The children performed brilliantly and had learnt so much in such a short space of time. Well done year 4!
This week in geography we have been learning about the layers of the Earth and volcanoes. First we cut a boiled egg in half and looked at how each part of the egg could represent the Earth’s layers. Then we made our own Earth out of play dough using different colours to show each layer. Lastly we made a volcano model with a partner!
This week has been Anti-Bullying Week and we have been learning all about how to work as a class team to make sure we look after ourselves. We completed a jigsaw puzzle piece each to represent ourselves and then put the pieces together to make our class jigsaw. Together we are one!
