School Grounds Week

We’ve had a brilliant School Grounds Week, doing lots of activities. We went outside on the IPads and took photos of different shapes and angles that we could find then we used Explain Everything to describe the properties of what we found. In another Numeracy lesson, we counted daisies in a squared metre and placed the data into a bar chart, we created a persuasive poster to encourage people to save the daisies. We also measured the area and perimeter of rectangles in the school grounds. We really enjoyed our pond dipping experience, we got the chance to find lots of wildlife, Mrs Jones and Miss Elderfield managed to find a leech!

Hi everyone

Here is your homework for this week

Mrs Kinch 🙂

Maths – Sumdog

Spellings – words ending in ‘ation’


Literacy – Write a book report about the book you are reading at the moment. This could be your school reading book or any other book you are currently reading.

Remember to include the title and the author’s name. Would you recommend this book to anybody else? what are your reasons for this? Discuss the characters. Who is your favourite character and why?

You can write your book report on paper and hand it in as normal, or you can type it up on the blog.

Happy reading!

Memorable adverts

Do any of you have any favourite adverts (or ones that you may hate) that you simply can’t get out of your head?

What are these adverts for? How do they end up so memorable? Can you comment below to let me know which adverts you remember. Can you also say what it is about the advert that makes it so successful?

Celebration of our Roman topic

Yesterday, the Year 3 children visited us to help celebrate the end of our Roman topic. We shared lots of our learning, especially our Roman toys that we made on Scratch. Well done to Louis and Noah who won the Dragon’s Den competition and Scarlett and Cara who were close runners up.

As part of International day and our Roman topic we made pizzas to share with the year 3’s. Here are some photographs of us making them.

Can you write some instructions to tell everyone how you made them?

Remember to include:
Title, little introductory opening, what you need section, method, numbered steps, adverbs, imperative verbs and subordinate clauses. Can you also include a warning tip to make sure no one chops off their fingers?!

Why don’t you have a go at making pizzas at home following someone’s instructions.

Random acts of kindness

We have been talking a lot this term about ‘Random acts of kindness,’ what random acts of kindness have you done or are planning to do this month?

Roman Roads

Today, at school, we learnt how Roman roads were made. We looked on a map at where some Roman roads went from and to and then created our own miniature Roman road using stones, gravel, pebbles and sand. Can you remember how Romans built the roads?
