Welcome to Class 5
Class Teacher - Mrs Howard
I am Mrs. Howard and I will be teaching your child this academic year. I am looking forward to providing many exciting learning experiences for your child this first busy half term.
Programming Beebots around a treasure map
We have thoroughly enjoyed our Red, White and Blue day today! The children took part in baking WW1 biscuits (and eating them), They played football with straws and tinfoil and made bunting for our street party. I enjoyed seeing all of the smiles and excitement on their faces.
A Quiz About Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell
Today the children worked on being "Self Managers" and "Team workers" by completing a quiz in groups. They worked in their team point groups to answer questions all about the nurses in their topic. They did really well at working together and sharing their learning with others. If they didn't know the answer they moved on and came back to the question later.
We worked together to complete a fair test. We were trying to find out which liquid would clean our dirty 2 pence coins the best. At the end of our experiment, we found that washing up liquid cleaned the coins better than vinegar, coca cola or salt water.
Finding the beat with instruments in Music
In maths, we have been using numicon or base ten to find out numbers bonds to 20 and 100.
Today a child in our class brought in a home made instrument. He managed to play along with the beat to a song we have learned in music.
On our first week back we had a PSHE day. We worked together to role play times that we were happy. The children came up with lots of wonderful things that made them happy, such as: playing with siblings, days out with parents, seeing baby siblings for the first time.
