French day

 

 

 

 

On Friday, the whole school took part in a French themed day because it was the first day of the Euro football tournament which is being held in France this year. Even though we have never done French before, we all tried our best and learned some new French words. Mr Sherman was really impressed with our class so we won a French Buzz Lightyear toy to play with in choice time!

Literacy: We have been planning our creatures own life cycles ready to write an explanation text tomorrow!

Our website wonders for our Giant descriptions!

Big writing: We wrote some fantastic letters in big write as Jack apologising to the Giant

Caterpillar update!

We have named our caterpillars! We had lots of suggestions from everyone in class then had a class vote. Our caterpillars are called:

  • Tilly

  • Billy

  • Tickles

  • Wriggles

  • Lucky

 

We can't wait to see them grow over the next few weeks!

We really enjoyed playing our 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table games we made for homework! Some of us even played them in choice time!

Maths homework

For our homework last week, we had to create a game which could help us learn and practise our 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. We had lots of fun playing them this afternoon and enjoyed it so much, continued playing them during our choice time! Thank you to all the parents who helped the children create their games - they are brilliant!

OUR CATERPILLARS HAVE ARRIVED!

 

Our caterpillars have finally arrived at school.!!We can't wait to watch them transform into butterflies over the next few weeks. There are five altogether so Mrs Wright would like us to think of five different names so we can name them.

We have been partitioing numbers in different ways today

The Queen's Birthday picnic in the sunshine! :)

We have been learning about direction and movement today. We had to describe which way the guard turned.

We really enjoyed our day celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday! We all dressed up in red, white or blue and really enjoyed our picnics in the sunshine. The whole school even sang Happy Birthday to the Queen!

HAPPY 90TH BIRTHDAY QUEEN ELIZABETH II!

We enjoyed our athletics session with Class 3.

WE LOVED EUREKA!!!

  

We had a fab day in Eureka! Everyone was really well behaved and enjoyed exploring the different sections especially the 'All About Me' section. Did you know that we produce about a cup full of snot everyday but end up swallowing most of it? No neither did I! Gross eh? Did you know that the tallest man on Earth was from Turkey and was over 8 foot tall? How amazing is that!

 

We're all very excited for our trip to Eureka! We can't wait to explore the 'All about me' floor learning even more about the human body for our science topic Complete Athlete!! We'll also be able to learn a bit about plants for our next topic which is all about Nature!

 

Remember to wear your school uniform, bring a bottle of water and a packed lunch in a bag (if you are not having school grab-a-bag). You need to be at school for 8:15am so we can leave promptly at 8:30am.

 

 

 

 

 

Well done to everyone from Class 4 who made and wrote a birthday card for the Queen! They were all absolutely fabulous and all children had clearly put time and effort into making her card special! The school birthday card winners will be revealed on her birthday! They are all being sent off to Buckingham Palace as we speak so they arrive in time for her birthday on Thursday. I'm sure she will love them all! 

 

 Space seeds!

Next week we will be planted seeds which have been into space. How exciting!
