Together Everyone Achieves More
Hello and welcome to our new class webpage! Here you can find out all about our learning for each term. You will be able to look through photos and videos of the fun we have been having in class!
The children have made a fantastic start. Their attitude to learning and behaviour have been very impressive.
They all decided what they wanted from their teachers and what they feel they need to do in order to make our classrooms brilliant learning environments. We drew up some contracts.
In maths, we have been trying to find all the possible strategies that could be used to solve a multiplication calculation. Many children have a different preferred approach and different methods will be more suited to some types of multiplication than others. The more strategies we know, the more likely we are to select the most efficient method.
READ ALL ABOUT IT!! The children have been the most amazing journalists recently. They have uncovered some amazing stories, written scripts for news reports and published their very own news articles! have a look.
For our D and T topic this half term, we have designed and made Roman sandals.
On Wednesday, we had an amazing time getting active on our 'History Day'. We learned about where the Roman empire developed and how, over several centuries, their people travelled through Europe conquering a great many countries. We found out about how the Roman army was structured and what made them such a success. We made shields, helmets and swords in the morning and then, in the afternoon, went into the playground to recreate some of the Roman army's most effective battle formations.
Thank you to everyone for their amazing effort with costumes, books, art materials and practical support... it really made our day have impact!
We have been learning to retell a traditional tale with a twist. By learning the story with actions, it supports the children with the development of their sentence structures and punctuation.
