What a week! I am so so pleased with how well my class are doing. Their learning behaviours have improved so much in the last 5 weeks. The proof was how many certificates my class collected this week… AND we had the best attendance. Great work Peacocks…
This week the children were investigating gasses around us. They were set a challenge to try and prove gasses do exist. They completed 5 activities to try and prove that gasses are everywhere. The children loved trying to weigh a deflated and an inflated balloon, working out why they couldn’t squash an empty bottle with a lid on and trying to find the tissue that eucalyptus on it. Comment in the comments box to let me know what you found out.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been looking at the skills needed to write a set of instructions. This week we made a variety of things for a class picnic including sausage rolls and sandwiches. We then wrote some fantastic instructions. We didn’t stop there, we then improved them further to make them even better. I was delighted with the effort and pride the children demonstrated. Great job Peacocks!!!
Huge well done to all our certificate winners this week. Keep up the hard work with the reading challenge. And a massive well done to Marie for being the only person to get full marks on this weeks spellings.
This week we have made huge progress in our maths knowledge. I have been really impressed that the children are using what they know to help them solve other problems. We have all had a go at being Maths Masters and considering it was your first go…you were all fantastic and showed lots of perseverance.
A key thing to making rapid progress in maths is learning the times tables. Each week I will be posting a song for you to watch to help you learn the times table of the week.
I was delighted to see my fantastic class looking so smart and ready for learning today. They have had a brilliant first day back and have collaborated, noticed, managed distractions and 100% committed themselves to being a Peacock.
We have learnt the importance of knowing our times tables so here is a little YouTube video to help you remember your 5 times table. Click on the link and enjoy learning.
