It has been lovely to see some very creative reading projects that have been completed over the Christmas break.
We have a new book author that we are focusing on this term – J.R Wallis. He is a children’s author and loves to write about strange and mysterious things. What mysterious things are we going to find in our class book?!
Today we had our final play rehearsal. We were practising our speaking and listening skills and making sure we had loud, clear voices. We also works on our drama and acing skills and really made our characters come to life.
This week in maths we have used our problem solving skills, which has required us to use all 4 operations. We have calculated fractions and percentages and worked out the total budget of our party, to do that we have calculated the total cost of food, entertainment and ticket prices.
Today in maths we have been comparing fractions with related denominators. First we had to find the lowest common multiple , we did this by using our times tables. We found the equivalent fraction and proved this by showing our workings. The rule you always have to remember is whatever you do to the demonitor you must always do to the numerator.
This morning in Maths we have been problem solving. We have a budget of £500.00 to produce our theme park. We have many different things to consider:rides, cafes, toilets, car parks, paths and restaurants. We have to use a key and draw our theme park, making sure we don’t go over our budget.
Today Class 8 have been planting daffodil bulbs, we have planted 27 for our whole class. These will have grown in time for next spring. We have talked about how the water and sunlight helps the plants to grow and the children spoke about the green house being the best place for the plants to grow as they are protected from the frost and ice we may have over the winter.
This afternoon , we were considering our futures and our aspirations to get us to our end goal. We were looking up our key words: salary, anum, income and requirements. This inspired us to find out key information about what we would like to become.
