Year 5 week ending 26.1.18

Year 5 week ending 26th January 2018

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – add and subtract numbers with decimal places.

Literacy – we have written and edited our own stories written from Pandora's point of view.

Science – we have investigated the difference between parallel and series circuits and created these using electrical components.

Humanities – we have been looking into the different crimes in the Victorian period and the punishments that accompanied them.

Welsh –  we have begun reading a new Welsh book called "O Blaned i Blaned" and the children have investigated the text using Detective Darllen.

ICT - we have been entering and using data in excel.

 How you can help at home:

Numeracy – my maths homework has been set and is available from the 26th January to the 2nd February.

Science – we will be learning about conductors and insulators next week.  Look around you and make lists of insulators and conductors that you can see.

Humanities - we would like the children to compare the types of food eaten by the Victorians and the types we eat now.  These can be presented in a venn diagram, where the overlapping section in the middle represents any food from Victorian times that we still eat now.

Swimming – please could the children in group one bring a t-shirt and shorts for the lesson next week and a separate carrier bag to put them in afterwards (no denim shorts please).

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Peacock.

Year 2 week ending 26th January

This week we have been learning about:

Maths: Adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers by jumping in the number line. First we jump up/ down the 10s and then the units. Adding the price of 2 or 3 cakes and finding change from 50p and £1. 
Literacy: In Big write we are describing the Mad Hatters tea party. We will also each week be unleveling our sentences using VCOP (vocabulary, Connectives, openers and punctuation). At the moment we are focusing on vocabulary ( wow words - adjectives) and openers (time connectives, adverbs to start a sentence such as nervously or excitedly).
Topic: We have started our work on Materials by thinking about the properties of certain materials. In Art we have started to look at the work and style of Van Gogh. This work will eventually lead to the children painting a scene from Alice in the style of Van Gogh. 

You can help at home by:

Maths: I have added three simple activities on mymaths. They are focusing on length, mass and capacity which run through all our maths work. Often our problem solving and reasoning is based on measure . These activities will reinforce some of the basic concepts which they need to know and understand in order to confidently approach reasoning work. Don't forget to practise those flashcards and 2, 5 and 10 times tables. 
Literacy: Using VCOP up level or improve the following simple sentences: Alice fell down the hole. The rabbit ran past Alice. The Queen of Hearts walked into her castle. The Mad Hatter invited us to his tea party. 
Think about including exciting adjectives and openers.
Art: Use the internet to explore the work of Van Gogh. Choose your favourite picture of his and try to copy it. Think about the colours and shades that he uses. 

Have a lovely weekend, 
Mrs Schartz and Mrs Peacock

Reception Week Ending Jan. 26th

This week in reception…

 

Literacy – We read “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and wrote about which food we thought we’d like to fall from the sky. We also made our own 3-day and 5-day weather forecasts for the “Chewandswallow Newspaper.” We made words using nets and ping pong balls (which we pretended were boiled eggs that had come down in a storm). We will be watching our filmed weather reports from last week on Friday and talking about volume, pace and body language on camera.

 

Please continue to read at home and practice the sounds: y, v, ch, w, th, nk, ng and the tricky red words: I, put, the

 

Maths – We built on our knowledge of shapes and learned about 2D vs. 3D shapes. We sorted shapes in all sorts of ways (by whether they roll, slide or both, by how many edges, by 2D vs. 3d ect,.). We also made our own shapes using geomag and fort magic. We finished off the week by sorting through a tray of different foods, finding all sorts of shapes there as well!

 

Next week we will be doing lots of measuring. To support your child at home, see how many different ways you can measure household objects (using cubes, socks, measuring tape, rulers, measuring cups, scales, ect,.) and talk about standard and non-standard measurements.

 

Knowledge and Understanding – Each group designed a plan for our role play area based on food. They presented their posters and voted for their favourite design. The winning group has built a fabulous grocery shop that also sells hot chocolate and ice cream! The children have really enjoyed playing in it this week.

 

Creative Development – We used puffy paint to ice cupcakes and cake slices for our afternoon tea door display.

 

P.E. – We worked on developing ways of travelling and practiced nice, squashy landings on the mats both from the floor and from the benches. On Friday, we will be developing our dribbling and passing, beginning to move around objects.

 

Thanks for all of your support at home. Have a lovely weekend!

Homelearning Dosbarth Mr Green

Week beginning 22/1/18

Literacy:

Pupils will receive their spellings to learn on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. During that time pupils can find out the meaning of words using a dictionary to be able to include them in written sentences. I will check their sentences on that Friday. Five house Points will be awarded for correct spelling and the use of full stops and capitals.

 

 

Numeracy:

We have carried on from complements of £10 to complements of 10 and 1.

Use the same rules as last week. So? = 3.6 = 10. The last number needs 4 to make ten and preceding numbers always make 9 so 6 is needed. Here we put in the decimal point: 6.4. The same applies to make 1 so 0.36 +0.64.

 

Topic:

Please start to gather information on Victorian inventions. What have the Victorians done for us?

 

Thank you for your continued support

Activities to try at home

Literacy – make up a riddle.  Can you make up a riddle so people have to guess what you are describing.  Think about the one we shared in class describing a newspaper without the poet actually telling you what it was.  Have a go – It would be great to read some out in class next week.

 

Numeracy -  have a go at finding the difference of differently priced items e.g. a meal deal for a sandwich, a drink and an apple costs £3.00.  If the sandwich costs £2.20, the drink costs £0.70 and the apple costs £0.50, work out how much are you saving when you buy the meal deal?  Have a go at a few different sums in your homework book.

 

Science – think about the dangers of electricity we discussed in class – can you make up 3 different rules we can use in school to ensure we stay safe when using electricity.

 

Remember to learn your spellings for the spelling test on Monday – it was great to see many of you use your spellings correctly in sentences this week, well done.  Also recap your times tables ready for maths lessons next week.

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week beginning 15/1/18

Literacy:

Pupils will receive their spellings to learn on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. During that time pupils can find out the meaning of words using a dictionary to be able to include them in written sentences. I will check their sentences on that Friday. Five house Points will be awarded for correct spelling and the use of full stops and capitals.

 

 

Numeracy:

We have placed decimal numbers on a number line and worked out greater and lesser than. For example: 4.2 < 4.3.  We have also looked at complements of 100, £1 and £10.00

For example ? + £4.59 = £10.00. We add a number to the nine to make a ten. We then move on to the next number (here it is 5) to make 9. This applies to the next (4). So the answer is £5.41. Please practice.

Use MyMaths homework that is set.

 

Topic:

Please start to gather information on Victorian childhood. How does it differ from those today?

Year Two week ending 12/1/18

Happy New year to your all! 
We have had a wonderful week - the children have been excited to be back and have all been anxious to find out our new topic. We have called it 'The Mad Hatters Tea party' and it will incorporate a huge range of creative and academic activities including Literacy linked to Alice in Wonderland, Maths reasoning activities linked to cooking and planning for a tea party, the properties of material including investigating the best materials for tablecloths, sponges etc, designing and making a hat for the Mad Hatter and planning a performance and afternoon tea for parents at the end of the term. 
The children will doing PE on Mondays and Wednesdays ( although next week Wednesdays session will move to Thursday or Friday as we have something special planned for the children). The children will normally have recorders on Wednesday but next week it will be Thursday. 

This week we have been learning about:
Maths: Place value of 3 digit numbers, completing addition using our previous knowledge e.g. 35+6= 11+30=41
Literacy: Writing thank you letters to father Christmas, thinking carefully about what we want to achieve this year
Topic: We talked about Growth Mindset this week

You can help at home: 
Maths: I have only set one activity this week as it is a bit longer than the normal ones. Don't forget to keep practising those flashcards. The children are good with the timetables but need more practise with rapid recall of the additions. 
Literacy: We were lucky to have some dry ice today in school and we made some potions in cauldrons and in a bottle. Draw a potion bottle and, using exciting adjectives, describe it. Use your knowledge of speed sounds and a dictionary if necessary to check your spellings. 
Topic: The children really enjoyed talked about growth mindset and we were able to sort phases into fixed mindset or growth mindset. We are hoping over the next couple of weeks to create a learning pit display in the classroom so that children can self evaluate their progress in different concepts. They all seem really positive about it. Working with your child, talk about what someone with a fixed mindset would say and what someone with a growth mindset would say. Make a list of ideas and bring them into school. 

Have a lovely weekend, 
Mrs Schartz and Mrs Peacock.

Reception Week Ending Jan 12th

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas; I’m sure you did as the children were bursting to share all the exciting things they did on Tuesday! It’s been a fun and busy week back in reception.

 

This week we read a book called “The Mitten” and did lots and lots of mitten-themed activities! After this week we will be starting our new topic for the term which is Food. This will then branch into some mini units including weather, dinosaurs, afternoon tea and Alice in Wonderland.

 

Literacy – In literacy this week the children designed their own mitten and came up with some excellent describing words which they wrote down. They also got into character as the animals from the story and acted it out. We learned a song to help us remember the order that the animals crawled into the mitten and came up with actions as a class. Next week we will be reading the book “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” To help your child at home, you might find and look at the weather forecast online or on the tv and discuss types of weather.

 

Maths- This week in maths we did some number bond work using penguins and fish, counted pairs of mittens (counting in 2s), and used our ordinal numbers to sequence the animals from our story. To help your child at home, practice counting in 2s up to twenty. Next week we will be working with shapes. See how many different shapes your child can find around the house or out and about!

 

Physical Education – This week we danced the cha-cha slide and practiced using our directional language to guide a partner around obstacles. We also continued to develop our ball passing skills.

 

Creative Development – We used sponges and different shades of acrylic paint to make a winter sky background. Next we will be working on modge-podge mittens to go on top.

 

Knowledge and Understanding – We will be introducing philosophy and thinking skills on Friday afternoon; giving opinions and using “because” to explore our thoughts and attitudes on a range of questions.

 

Welsh- This week we learned some winter words like menig (mitten), het (hat) and dyn eira (snow man) among others and continued to practice asking and responding to “Swt wyt ti?” (How are you?).

 

Thank you for all your support at home!
