Welcome To Our Class

English

In English, we have been using a dictionary to classify nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs.

Today, we have been using the chrome books to support our understanding of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs.

In English, we have created  new settings  based on 'The Wizard of Oz' story.

Today, we have used a thesaurus to support writing our setting descriptions.

Today, we have chosen a character from the Wizard of Oz and written a diary entry.

This term, we have been learning about explanation texts. We  have read a range of  texts , identifying and comparing the features.

We have written an explanation about  what happens at Manchester Recycling Centre.

This week, our class are using the structure of 'Jemima Glitter and the Voyage of Bob the Bottle'  to write our own poems about plastic pollution.

Jemima Glitter and the Voyage of Bob the Bottle

This term, we are writing a non-chronological report about caring for a dog. We have all chosen a breed of dog to research.

Today, our class were visited by Melanie and Bob from the Dogs Trust. We learned how to care and stay safe around dogs.

Mathematics

This term, we have been learning strategies to calculate multiplication and division calculations. Today, we used our knowledge and understanding to solve a treasure hunt problem. In groups, we had to solve  multiplication and division word problems on the treasure hunt sheet, rounding any remainders so that the answers made sense. Then, we had to hunt for the answers that were placed around the classroom  to find the corresponding letters to create a phrase. The first team to find all the letters and work out the phrase was the winner.

This week, our class are learning about fractions.

We have been learning about unit and non unit fractions and fractions of shapes and small numbers.

Today, we have taken part in a consumer test to find out the fraction of different colours in a small packet of skittles.

Today, we worked with a partner to estimate and measure our body parts to the nearest c.m. Then, we converted our measurements into m.m.
