How do we show we belong?

In RE, we’ve been exploring our new big question – ‘What does it mean to belong to a faith community?’

Miss Mcintosh and I brought in items and the children had to guess who’s they were and why we chose them to symbolise belonging. Then we explored what it meant to belong and what we belong to.

Last week, we asked the children to bring in objects that showed belonging for them and it was so lovely!

The children then had the opportunity to go and ask their friends about the things they have brought in and how they show belonging. There were some amazing conversations, we nearly missed the home time bell because we were so interested in what everyone had to say. I love my class!

It’s Raining Food!!!

To our surprise, during a writing lesson, it started raining food outside!

We will be writing a new version of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs as part to link with our science topic. The children will be looking at adverbs to describe verbs and interesting verbs about the weather. We’ve been exploring different weather types and creating banks of verbs, adverbs and adjectives to help with our writing.

Learning together is so much fun!

The children in 6NS have been paired up with children in 1H. The idea is for them to work together on reading skills and any other activities we feel they could do well together. Today we had The Globe where the children could meet people from all different cultures and backgrounds. Some of the places our visitors came from were France, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Spain to name a few. We decided this would be a perfect opportunity for the children to work with their partners – Year 6 could support the Year 1 with their writing whilst learning themselves. It was so lovely to watch all partners working so well together! We can’t wait for our next opportunity to work together!

Measuring wind with Francis Beaufort

We’ve been learning all about different weathers. We’ve been writing weather reports, creating weather maps, measuring temperature and rainfall. Last week, we learnt all about the historical figure, Francis Beaufort. We learnt about his contributions to sailing, science and geography and we explored The Beaufort scale. We matched videos and pictures to the scale using descriptions and we went outside to see if we could use the scale to measure the wind.

Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken!

What a fluffy and wonderful Friday we had!

We’ve been closely monitoring the magical hatching of ten eggs at St Marys and Friday was the chicks last day with us so we had a lovely play and cuddle.

The children were great at handling them. Just look at how adorable they are…

Numbers to 40!

We have started looking at numbers to 40 in maths. We’ve been partitioning numbers, renaming ones into tens and comparing 3 numbers. We’ve been looking at numbers and thinking about how many tens and how many ones are in it. Today we started to look at comparing three numbers and making rules on how to do it. At home, see what numbers you can see around the house – how many tens? How many ones? Count the amount of something in your house, compare it to another number. Which one is greater? By how many?

We’ve been loving our new topic. Watch this space to see some more amazing maths work and some phenomenal journals!

We’re going on an Easter egg hunt, we’re going to find a yummy one

We did an excellent job during our Easter assembly (it will be on the blog soon!), the children sang beautifully, they were incredibly loud and confident with their lines and they enjoyed every moment of it! We had a fun day on Friday with lots of Easter activities. To end our amazing Spring term we had an Easter egg hunt! Miss Mcintosh and myself thought it would last 10 minutes and of course it lasted 5 because they were so good at finding clues and hunting for the eggs!

Look at our happy and chocolatey faces.

Measuring!

Our current maths topic is coming to a finish and it has been very fun!

We’ve been measuring using standard and non-standard units. We measured things around the classroom using paperclips and then realised it was silly to try and measure a table or a sofa with paperclips so we decided to use our hands and feet. We came to great conclusions with lots of exploring, for example why the table is 10 hands long but only 7 feet long. We compared heights and lengths and we even carried on exploring at play time!

Tennis taster

Today we were lucky enough to have a lovely tennis session in the glorious sunshine. The children had a great time learning a new skill.

If you would like to take your child to free tennis sessions on Wednesday evenings then have a look on the Manchester Park tennis website on the leaflet you got today. These are at Alexandra park and are for parent and child! We have the right to join clubs.
