Over the last two weeks, Team CB have been quietly working away to write their fantastic fact books about Mountains. They became mini-Attenbouroughs as they researched all about the mountains before using their notes to write up an informative piece to be shared with the whole school next week. The class have thought hard about how they can give enough detail to those who want to read their work. As such, they have worked hard to include subordinating conjunctions such as if, when, because and although in their final piece. I cannot wait for the rest of school to understand the true importance of protecting these natural wonders!
In Maths, we have been working hard on addition. The class have shown real competence in adding 2 three digit numbers and have a better understanding of the exchange process as a result of practical resources to support their understanding of the written method. Next week, we will begin to apply this learning in context as we work hard to solve reasoning and problem solving based questions linked to the skill.
In Science, we have carried out careful observations of unidentified rocks. We considered their texture, colour and appearance when writing descriptions for each rock. The class then had to match their definition to a series of pre-typed descriptions. The class had observed so carefully that they found it easy to identify Sandstone, Granite, Marble, Chalk, Limestone and Slate from the information they were presented with.
In Music, we have continued with our work on the glockenspiels. This week we worked on combining the D and E keys into two songs. We looked at minims and crotchets and recognised the difference. We found it much more challenging to swap between notes when crotchets were used as this meant note were only held for one count!
In PE, we have been continuing with our hockey focus for this half term. The class worked incredibly hard to apply their dribbling skills whilst under pressure. They quickly realised that in hockey games you cannot only look at the ball, but that you must also have an awareness of your surroundings so that you can spot players from the opposing team who may try to take possession of the ball.
As you can see, we have been so incredibly busy and I could not be more proud of how hard our children are working! Keep it up Team CB - you are all superstars!
