The children have been working very hard this week and I am pleased with how well they are using their IT skills to present different aspects of learning. We created some excellent mind maps in science using popplet and pic collages for art.
We have been building on our maths and started the week by thinking about using rounding as a way of estimating totals. Some children have found it tricky to give an answer that wasn’t the exact answer but still be correct! The children are beginning to make reasoned choices when estimating, deciding if they should round to the nearest 10 or 100.
I have also been really impressed with the homework “all about me”. The children have taken so much care with presenting their work beautifully. We managed to share some pieces of work in class and had a chat about what we liked about different pieces. Great job guys can’t wait to see your next homework.
We ended the week with a great PATHs session today where we looked at the different roles needed within collaborative learning groups. We went through why this way of working was important and how it enables groups members to support each other ensuring we all achieve. The children recapped the key skills needed which they said including good listening skills, compromising and sharing out the work load fairly amongst team members.
Don’t forget you can keep regular checks on what the children are doing in class by following us on Twitter.
