It is a brilliant experience for the children to take part in where they have the opportunity to take part in numberous activities throughout the day. At the end the children will be presented with a certificate and a Roman coin.
This week we have been exploring the rock types through watching short clips. From the clip, we have found out that there are three main rock types and they are;
The children have been using straws and match sticks to develop their knoweldge that not all numbers can be equally shared without so many being left over. They have been working in pairs, groups and whole class to model using the equipment to explain how they solved the calculation.
This week we have been continuing with developing our knowledge of how we can apply our known multiplication facts to solve larger 2 digit calculations. We have also used our place value counters to help to develop our understanding further. Not only that but we have been working really hard at trying to explain and model how to solve, prove or spot a mistake by applying models, methods and mathematical lanuage.
The children have worked in pairs to carry out research through the use of different sources of information. Once they had collected enough information, they had the challenge of applying what they already knew about non ficitions texts. Through the planning, drafting and editing their pieces, the children then used their IT skills to publish their writing using the Pages app. Here are just a few samples of what they children have accomplished. They have really worked exceptionally hard with manipulating images and selecting parts of their texts in order to change the font style.
Wow, these children have really stood out this week where they have worked hard, shown great determination to succeed as well as make the right choices. Brilliant, we are all so proud of you. Keep it up.
Team GG would like to say a massive thank you to all those who suported their stall at the coffee morning. The whole class has worked extremely hard to produce such high standard pieces of christmas decorations, festive treats and cards. Not only that, they have worked together as a team to successfully run their stall so well done to them. What an amazing way to apply their mathematical skills to such real life situations.
Once again, thank you. Without your support, they would not have raised over £100 towards their historical trip to Murton Park.
The children have all worked toegher to produce a range of handmade and crafted festive objects to sell at the Christmas Coffee Morning. This will be their very first stall where they will be running as a team. All the money raised will be going towards their first trip in the spring term. They all should be proud of themselves for such amazing produce created. We all can not wait to get behind the stall to sell.
