Y5 really enjoyed their visit from Millie this morning! We worked in groups and created a dance sequence to the song “Sunshine” by Weiss. We had a fantastic time!
We had a great time at the Regional Science Centre learning about the digestive system. We did a really fun investigation about the journey that food takes in our bodies. We can’t wait for our next science lesson next week where we are going to be learning more about teeth and we will be making tooth paste.
On Wednesday 28th November 2018, Y5 went to Eden Camp. When we got there we saw a huge spitfire and a ship that was all rusty. When we got off the coach we got into our groups. We saw these huts in our groups, the teachers were told to go in each hut and look at all the information and answer the questions on the sheet. One team went in the blackout hutwhich was all about the blackout. It had dummies in and smoke because the bombs dropped. Then we had dinner and after dinner we went in some more huts until we got to play on the playground. Then we went back on the coach and went to school.
Some of our parents came into class to do phonics with us on Friday. The children got to show them how they are learning to read and some of the different activities that they do in phonics. The grown ups were very impressed with how well everyone worked and some of the tricky sounds they know. Everyone enjoyed working together!
In Maths we have been learning the 3 and 4 times tables. In year 4 we are going to learn 6,7,8,9,11 and 12 times tables.
Year 3 are getting the hang of times tables.
Year 3 play times tables games a lot.
Before dinner and playtime Mrs Tomlinson gave us some questions too and it helps us.
If you know your times tables you will know your division facts.
After Christmas year 3 are going to be doing a times table competition with some other schools.
Some of the year 3 are struggling with their times tables so we do some games that help us.
In year 2 we did a times table cup and people got the cup for a day.
