Week 1 w/e 29.04.22

It was great to have the children back in school this week after the Easter Break.  I was so proud of them all - how they have grown (in so many ways) since September and I told them so!  They have settled back beautifully and worked to their very best in everything we have done.  I'm am sure we will have a brilliant Summer Term ahead.

What a way to start the week...with a House Day celebrating St George!  In KS1, each class enjoyed a different craft activity during the afternoon and their work was judged by Mrs Newell.  In 2C, after recalling the story of George and the Dragon we made dragon's eyes from clay.  Mrs Newell awarded our house trophy to St Andrew's.   We are in the process of making a display with 1A's craft work and some photos of ours, so I will post a picture once it is done.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the fabulous creations made by your children in the pictures below.  I'll send the eyes home next week.

In ENGLISH, we are looking at TRADITIONAL TALES this half term.  This week, we have focused on story language and the basic structure a story follows and also looked at themes that are common across fairy stories and traditional tales.  Going forward we will be looking in more depth at Jack and the Beanstalk, initially sequencing and then retelling the original story and considering the characters carefully before planning and writing our own alternative ending.

The practical start to our maths unit of work...

As an introduction to our new unit of work in maths,  FRACTIONS, we had a practical lesson to understand the terms whole, part, equal and unequal.  We used cubes, squares of paper, numicon and counters to help us.  We finished our session by writing the following definition:

 

A FRACTION is PART of a WHOLE.  Each part must be EQUAL.
