    Safer Internet Day

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Today we followed up from Mrs Vizard's assembly; recognising and understanding how to be safe when online. We shared a story, watched a video clip and made reminder posters. The key points were... always ask permission (if it is okay) to go online. Once on, always ask an adult to help when faced with questions or choices such as "do you want to buy ... ?" Never give out any personal information; name, age, address, birthday or where you go to school. Have fun...stay safe!

    Walt understand that half is 2 equal groups.

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Fractions! Our maths theme has moved on but has very close links to the division just covered and the multiplication facts we know... so keep working on those 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables! Today we talked about finding equal halves of a shape, using both the word and the symbol.

    WALT link ideas within a story

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Today in our English session we investigated the authors subtle skill of moving the setting to create mini plots. Mini Grey the author of Traction Man uses an unseen characters voice to do this. We tried it out with our classroom based setting ideas. For example, Sam moved the setting from the table to the boys toilet by having the teachers voice say "It's time to get ready for lunch"!

    Jenner Museum

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Firstly, a huge thank you to the staff at the Edward Jenner Museum for hosting our spectacular "Hedgehog habitat" workshop. The children clearly had a fabulous experience as their chatter was full of "guess what we did Mrs Trotman"... talk this morning! We are very lucky to have such a great resource here on our doorstep. Thank you also to the parents who, at short notice and in pretty nippy conditions, gave up their afternoon to accompany us.

    Jenner Museum part 2

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children were taken on a habitat trail around the grounds, learning where local native species might live such as toads in the well and lizards in the wall crevices. Then they helped to make hedgehog hibernation houses.

    New books

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    I am sure by now that some of Traction Man's classroom shenanigans have reached your ears - such as building himself a Duplo house and making a rope swing on the classroom ceiling! Today he left us a parcel containing two NEW Traction Man books. We are all pretty excited to find out what he gets up to next and hopefully they will inspire our own TM stories to be amazing!

    Live science

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    At the beginning of term Isla brought in an avocado stone. With Mrs Tainton's help she and a group of buddies used the ipad to research how to grow a plant from the stone. They have been keeping a daily photo diary to help note any changes. I am really impressed with the dedication they have shown and that they are following up on the initial idea. What great collaboration and great learning behaviours! Here's to a bountiful crop!

    Uniform

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    A quick plea - please could everyone check their laundry piles as we have had a couple of school jumpers doing a disappearing act from the classroom recently. Masons has his name inside and is a Marks and Spencers knitted v-neck style. Thanks in advance!

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Well done children! We have made great headway with our learning in division and multiplication using concrete materials, pictures and our understanding of our times tables.
