Term 3

NSPCC Numeracy Day

 

On Friday 3rd of February we took part in a numeracy day to raise money for the NSPCC. We played "Who wants to be a Millionaire".  Two teams won 1,000,000 points (sorry not pounds) - The Number Crunchers and The Fraction Fighters.

 

We had lots of challenges to do including making Mobius strips and tangrams.  It was lots of fun.  Here are some pictures of our class activities and outfits.

 

           

 

 

    

 

Week 6

 

This week we have finished our topic on the rainforest by creating some 3d models showing the different layers.  We added some animals and birds.  Here are some pictures of the finished results.

 

         

 

         

 

                    

 

 

Week 5 

 

In English we have really enjoyed using our skills to write descriptive texts about different pictures.  The pictures have all been made out of food. Can you imagine a picture where the bridge is made out of cucumber, the bushes are made from curly kale and the trees are broccoli.  

 

Our second picture was an autumn scene with golden leaves of dried cornflakes, lamps of cinnamon sticks and a candle glowing from a cob of corn.  The winter scene looked like a frozen, frosty dream with an ice cream castle with chocolate walls.  Our favourite however was the world where everything was pink. A house made from soft nougat, liquorice doors and chocolate button tiles.  It looked scrumptious and good enough to eat!  

 

This book, A World of Food, has really inspired us to use interesting adjectives to improve our descriptive language.

 

    

Weeks 3 and 4

 

We have continued to work on our Into the Forest challenge, exploring this through geography and science.  You can see from the photograph of our board that we have

looked at facts about Sloths and how to write information texts.  We have also looked at the different layers of a Rainforest.

 

In Spanish we have been learning how to make sentences using adverbs, adjectives, articles and verbs.  Miss Norris has been telling us about her life in Argentina.  She lived behind the mountains and sometimes it was cold and snowy.

 

Week 1 and 2

 

In English we have started looking at our book for the term, Into the Forest.  This book is a picture book and we have been using pictures to create some descriptive writing and poetry.  On Friday we used instruments to enhance our poems.  

 

We have been setting ourselves some targets for maths.  This involves us having realistic goals that we can achieve in the 5 weeks left.  Some of us have decided to practice our times tables at home, others are concentrating on number bonds,  This extra study will help to improve our confidence in Maths. 

 

In Maths we have been measuring in mm, cm and m and calculating the perimeter of shapes.
