In Maths we have been learning to multiply a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. We started by using the resources to help us to visualise what we needed to do. We then started breaking the 2 digit number down into tens and ones to simplify the equation.
This week in class we were given the task of making a coin purse. A few weeks ago we started learning how to use a needle and thread. We began by using plastic needles and a guide to help us sew. We then moved on to pinning and then sewing 2 pieces of material together.
This week we finally got to make them!
We started by researching different coin purses. Then we looked at suitable designs. We then designed our purses and drew our plans. We had to cut out our plans and pin it safely to our chosen material.
We had to cut around our material and then use different stitches to sew the edges together. From there we added buttons or a press stud to stop the coins from falling out.
It has been a very busy few days and at times we may have found some things a little tricky. But we all worked extremely hard and are very proud of the coin purses that we produced.
Here are just a few pictures of our exciting learning.
Over the last few weeks we have been learning the different skills to enable us to play a game of hockey. We have learned how to hold the stick, dribble the ball, look for space, how to tackle safely and how to pass the ball to another player. Today we used these skills to help us play a match.
This week in English we have been exploring an animated short story called 'The Dragon Slayer'. The story ends with the Dragon Slayer taking pity on the 3 baby dragons. We had to think about what happened next and write our own stories.
As part of our RE this week we have been learning about the Jewish faith.
Today we had lots of fun making our very own Torah Scrolls. The scrolls are written in Hebrew. We had a go at writing some words in Hebrew.
Today we imagined that we were Hamlet and we wrote love letters to Ophelia, telling her how we felt about her.
We are a very romantic group of children!
As part our English learning, we have been looking at the play 'Hamlet' by William Shakespeare. In our lesson today we were all tasked with the job of being Claudius' advisors. We had to write a speech to say at his wedding to Gertrude.
We worked in groups to come up with our wedding speeches.
The Daily Mile
Today many of us successfully ran 9.5 laps of the playground, 1 mile. We all encouraged each other and kept each other motivated. We even got Miss King to do it with us.
With a positive mindset and a 'glass half full' outlook, anything is possible!
This term in science we have been looking at the human body. Over the last two weeks we learned about our skeletons and muscles. We thought about how they move and support us during exercise and everyday tasks.
In our creative lesson today we showed these different movements.
Can you guess what each skeleton is doing?
