Year 4’s clever coders

Year 4 have been creating their own games. The children have worked really well using a lot of skills, programming characters to move, fire objects, speak etc. using simple algorithms. Some of the children have also used repeat commands and variables such as scoring systems/ vanishing characters if they get hit. If you would like to play their games, please use a QR reader and scan the code.    BK EA FM   CSN BT   MT SMS ERR   AT AW LS MJ   DL HJ   JAF MA DI   ERR MT SMS   AK JF TH   JM DH MK   JB JB   EB MT MR SN   OE JH AH   AH     It's only fair to...

Enquiry fun!

This week we are thinking about all our learning over the past few weeks in our history enquiry about seaside holidays and will be creating models in groups to represent our learning. We will also be sharing our learning with you at our class assembly next Thursday! We are all very excited! In our science enquiry we have been learning  about the enchanted woodlands, this week we are thinking about the different parts of a plant and will observe plants closely using magnifying glasses. Next week we will work together to plan our science investigation around plants. For our independent writing we will be applying all of our learning from the past few weeks and writing our own recounts about a trip to the seaside. These will be displayed in the classroom on our writing showcase wall when we have finished! In maths we have started to look at the fraction half in many different  ways such as objects, amounts and shapes and will move onto finding a quarter too. We look forward to seeing you all at our class assembly next week!    It's only fair to...

Welcome back!

We had a great first week back, we have started our new enquiry, seaside holidays, where we will focus on how holidays have changed from the Victorian times to now. We also have an ice cream parlour in our classroom where the children can use their imagination and creativity and spend a day at the seaside! In literacy we have started to look at recounts and the features they have. This week, we will begin sharing some ideas to create our own group recounts. Our Science enquiry this half term is ‘Enchanted Woodlands’. The children are very excited to use our new outdoor learning area,and the space we have around school, to find out about different plants and trees. We will also be thinking about naming the parts of a plant. This week, we will start by finding out some information by looking at photographs and non fiction books. It's only fair to...

Construction fun in Y1

This week we have been having great fun in Year 1 thinking all about our moving picture books that we brought in last week. The children investigated the books and talked about what they liked about them. We then moved on to practising the skills linked with moving pictures such as fixed, temporary and permemant joins to make pictures move. We are in the middle of creating our own large scale moving books based on our literacy theme stories from a range of cultures. We can’t wait for you to see our finished work at the event on Thursday. Come along and leave your thoughts on our work! Year 1 have really impressed me with their amazing ideas and hard work!  It's only fair to...

Achieving personal bests

It was great to see the year 4 children working well together and individually today in P.E. They regularly supported each other offering positive feedback and areas to improve, and celebrated each other’s successes.  Every child in the lesson strived to achieve their personal best. This was evident in the javelin throw as their individual cone was going further and further down the hall. I look forward to improved weather conditions to see how far some of our talented children can throw the javelin! We have some expert throwers as the hall was not long enough! The children also shared roles in timekeeping and measuring. iPads were used to offer a visual video form of feedback. The children used this to improve/ change their technique, seeking for improvements. The standing long jump was an excellent example of this as the children found that bending their knees and using their arms effectively made them jump further. It really was an enjoyable lesson and it was great to see everyone working together to achieve. #togetherwebuildunderstanding       It's only fair to...
