What an experience this morning going back to a Victorian school day. Some of us liked it but most of us didn't. Ask us all about it.

This week we have been using websites to find information about African elephants and writing information booklets. Ask your children about some of the interesting facts they have learnt!

We have also begun looking at the art work of an artist called Edward Tingatinga that links to our topic of Africa.

Learning about Africa

Class Sheffield have enjoyed re-writing the Tinga Tinga tale 'Why Elephant has a Trunk.' Watch the clip here and search online for many more.

We have also been looking at the continent of Africa and labelling some of the countries. We have identified Kenya and Tanzania. 

Snow Days!

We hope that all children and families have enjoyed playing in the snow and have had a fantastic few days. 

If you would like some work for your child linked to our topics there is some ideas listed below :-  

  • Use the links to create a factfile or poster about Florence Nightingale or Mary Seacole-
  • Practise telling the time to o'clock, half past, quarter to or quarter past. If you feel like a challenge move onto 5 minute intervals!
  • Try these arithmetic questions:
40 + ______ = 100
30 + ____ = 50
4 + 2 + 7 =
6 + 2 + 4 =
67 + 13 =
56 - 13 =
4 x 3 =
12 shared by 4 =
1/4 of 20 =

Looking forward to seeing you next week.

This week we are working on money in maths, the children have impressed me with recognising the coins and notes. We have also used the coins to make different amounts of money e.g. 34p, 16p and £1.40.

In writing we are focusing on sentence types and are writing a letter linked to the story Meerkat Mail.

This week we are looking forward to our trip to Eureka. In writing we are focusing on recounts and in maths we are solving addition and subtraction word problems. Some of the children have even started to use the column method. Well done!
