Due to a snow day on Friday, we were unable to issue the children with their Key Skills. We will issue the key skills on this Friday 9th instead as the children wouldn’t have had much time to complete their key skills if we had issued it today.
Today was World Book Day and the children came dressed up in some fantastic costumes! We shared a book with other children from Wiggins and Blyton class this morning and then we had a catwalk to model our costumes. Strike a pose!
We have started reading the Iron Man this week. Today we had parts of the Iron Man which we needed to put back together and describe, ready to write a character description. Well done to all the children for persevering with the puzzle and working well as a team!
This morning we were able to ‘show off’ our presentation pieces that we created which were inspired by Hamlet. Thank you to all who came to see our work and commented on the effort we had put into it. What a lovely way to finish the school term!
Yesterday we had a ‘banquet’ in honour of Queen Gertrude’s marriage to Claudius. We pretended to be different characters from Hamlet, imagining what they might say to each other and think about the events at the banquet.
Today in history we learnt about Stonehenge and how historians estimate that it took 1,500 years to build! We had a go at building it ourselves using cheesy puffs instead of stones!
This week we have started working on our presentation pieces ready for our whole school showcase on Friday 9th February. So far we have completed our writing and next week we will begin painting our picture.
In maths, we have been learning how to use equipment to help us multiply. We created arrays using our dienes cubes and this has helped us to multiply larger numbers. Here we have combined two facts – 9×3 and 10×3 to work out 19×3.
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.
