This week the children have been fab!
In Maths we have been learning about fractions - it's been amazing to see the success of the children. We've been learning to find fractions of amounts using the bar model. We've found 1/4, 1/2, 1/3 and 3/4. Today we were solving problems involving fractions. Well done everyone - a super week!
In English we have started our Stone Age project. Everyday we are learning and researching an area of the Stone Age and then creating a page for our booklet. This will be ongoing over the next few weeks. So far we have looked at where they lived and stone tools.
We've had two PE lessons this week - a Netball session which is continuing every week and our last yoga session. Next week we will starting athletics on a Wednesday.
This afternoon the class created Stonehenge with Mrs Bravery out of biscuits. It was AMAZING!
Have a super long weekend. See you Tuesday.

Welcome back! Our new topic, as you have probably heard, is STONE AGE! On Tuesday we had an exploratory day looking at pictures and artefacts. We then made Stone Age cone people and decided what we would like to learn about. We came up with so many questions - Mrs Baker is going to be very busy planning!
On Wednesday and Thursday morning the class participated in a reading trial as we had been randomly selected to take part. They were absolutely fantastic and all tried their best. They were super excited to be given a pencil (with a rubber on it) and a certificate at the end of the day.
In Maths over the next few weeks we wil be learning about fractions. We are starting off with 1/2 and 1/4 (revision from year 1) and we will be moving to 1/3 and 3/4. This year we also need to find fractions of amounts.
Although it has only been 4 days, the children are already very tired. Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday.
