Lost Property

Do you recognise any of these items? These are the items that have accumulated in class since last Friday……

I am happy to help any child find their jumper/cardigan/hoodie etc however if there is no name in it I am helpless.

If you recognise any of these items please send an email to enquiries@

And please write names in clothing so I can get it back to you. Any unnamed items will now be put into lost property.

Thank you

Art

As you will know from the class newsletter we are studying John Hoyland and Joan Miro this half term. We had some time practicing our brush strokes and colour mixing in art last week and this week looked closely at some of John Hoyland’s work.

Mental maths

Some fast recall and game style mental maths in Year 2/3. The children need to know the bonds for all numbers below ten and the addition and subtraction facts. This game helps with these facts but also deepens the reasoning behind what they DON’T want to roll eg if they need 8 they don’t want 5 + 5 or 2 + 3 etc. They also had to decide what they didn’t want their partner to roll….. so they had a chance of winning!

Year 3 maths

The Year 3 children have been working on bonds and parts of numbers. They explored this using the cuisenaire rods and compared the different parts for the same number as well as the many parts for many numbers.

Then they recorded these representation in different ways – almost looks like algebra don’t you think? 😉

Fantastic work Year 3!

Year 2 maths – place value

Some of the maths work in Year 2 representing two digit numbers in groups of tens and ones. The children need to understand the value of each digit dependent of it’s place in the number and then represent this as groups of ten or ones.
