    Computing

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children were brilliant at understanding the importance of staying safe when using the internet. We used the "Swiggle" search engine to help us navigate some websites to help us research. Next session we will fine tune our searches to help us with our History mini theme of Edward Jenner.

    Traction Man

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Traction Man arrived in class yesterday to great excitement - ask your children to tell you all about him. Today we read the book which came with him. He seems to be making friends in class as he was seen having a cup of tea with Everywhere Bear and bungee jumping from the hot air balloon! What will he get up to next?

    Science

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children are building on their learning about "Materials". Mr Williamson gave them a lot of stuff to investigate and sort which led to some interesting discussions. They made paper and card boxes to develop their understand that the properties of materials can change. This will be very useful knowledge for the planned investigations.

    Equal groups

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    To develop our division skills the children have been learning about making equal groups by sharing. We have been looking at how division is related to multiplication. I have suggested they find opportunities to work on this at home so I hope mealtimes aren't taking too long as each baked bean is shared!

    Hopefully your children slept well last night as they had an intense afternoon of P.E. with "Mr O". They began to rehearse a new dance routine and in Gymnastics they honed their jumping techniques.

    Your handmade Christmas cards will be winging their way to you soon. The children worked with a new technique for making pompoms ... using a fork! I think you will agree they are very effective and super cute!
