Miss Davies: May 2016
Time has flown this week and again we have enjoyed the sunshine at school!
We have investigated different materials in science this week finishing our materials topic. The children had a great time manipulating materials trying to get them to stretch, bend, twist and squash. We used lots of different objects for example: socks, paint pots, drinking straws and sponges. We will be learning about plants in our next topic.
In maths this week we have been finishing off our multiplication topic, working hard at understanding the x sign as groups of/lots of or sets of. The children have used lots of practical activities to physically show what multiplying numbers looks like and have used their skills of explanation to convince and prove answers. Some children have worked on word problems linked with multiplication as well as sequencing of numbers. Our next step in learning is division.
In literacy this week we have continued our theme of crocodiles but have also learnt lots about alligators! We have shared stories and watched video clips to enhance our learning. We have written invitations to a crocodile river party and designed our own alligator information posters. The children will focus this week on adapting the popular story of 'The Selfish Crocodile' to create their own adventure stories.
More news next week but until then have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the week ahead.
Notes: Spelling tests for children in Base 2 are now on Thursday mornings due to timetable changes. Please can all children bring their spelling books in on this day each week, thank you.

Nine of our young singers, along with Mrs Heaton and myself, visited Wrenbury Nursing Home yesterday to sing a few carols and Christmas songs for the residents. The children were warmly welcomed and sang beautifully. It was lovely hearing some of the residents joining in with the traditional carols: 'O come all ye faithful' and 'In the bleak Midwinter'. Thank you Lola, Orla...
