All Classes Activity Flow
Class 5 this afternoon have been challenged to make a monster using different coloured cubes, with different values.
For example the green cube was worth 1 1/2, yellow = 3/4, blue = 2/8 red = 11/16.
Their task was to create a monster that had a value of 15 1/5. We discussed different approaches and strategies and decision making skills. We had a great fun, but challenging afternoon!
Here are some of our designs:
We have had a fantastic afternoon to wind down from all the hard work and testing this week!
Woody came to visit; children worked hard to write algorithms and debug them; and we are now well on our way with our sewing project!
Spelling List for Year 4s
Class 2 will be making sculptures and require a variety of tubes to do these with.
Mrs Horton has asked if anyone has any that they can bring in then the children would put these to good use.
No toilet roll tubes please.
Those parents who volunteered for tomorrows pedestrian training
Please could you come to school for 13.00hrs, the walks will last until the end of school.
In class 5 we have been brushing up on our measuring and angles knowledge. The children had great fun making polygons and applying their knowledge to calculate angles.
This week, Class 5 have been busy writing stories with a twist. They wrote from different character’s perspectives. Some integrated characters from one traditional tale into another, whilst others wrote a traditional story with opposite characters. Have you ever heard the tale of The Three Little Wolves getting bothered by the Big Bad Pig? Once the writing was complete, the children came into Class 2 to share their writing. Class 2 loved being read to by an older child and questioned them on some vocabulary choices.
Please find spellings list for Year 4s to practice please.
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the Gruffalo Tea Party! The children (and staff) worked very hard making the food and putting the decorations together and I hope that everyone who came, enjoyed themselves and had a lovely lunch. I know the children loved having you all join us!
On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, all of the children had a go at making the different party food, from Gruffalo crumble to ‘scrambled snake’ egg mayonnaise sandwiches.
To decorate the room, the children had made Gruffalo bunting and the room was set up as the Gruffalo forest. Every child led their visitor into the classroom, to take their seat. We enjoyed lots of tasty food.
There was even a competition to see who could make the best ‘owl ice cream’. Although I think a lot of them looked more like mice!
Don’t worry, I made sure the children did the washing up afterwards!
Class 5 are looking for volunteers to help them make cushions/pillows using a sewing machine.
If you have a DBS from Telford and Wrekin and would like to volunteer for any afternoons to come in and do this with Class 5 then please contact the school office.
