What an exceptionally brilliant start we have had after the half term! Team CB never fail to amaze me at the fantastic accomplishments they achieve. Since returning from the holidays, the class have worked tirelessly in all aspects of their learning and we are certainly very proud of each and every one of them.
In our Maths this week, we have been busy investigating division using the formal written method (bus stop). The class have shown brilliant skill at seeing this method for the first time, practicing it and applying it to their own problems. What absolute superstars you are! They have been busy solving problems involving sharing without carries, and beginning to look at carrying over in some division problems too. Next week, we will be exploring what happens when a number does not divide exactly.
Our Literacy this week has been a SPAG focus on prepositions. The class have been creating their own prepositional phrases linked to images, recognising the different prepositions they can use. We have worked hard to apply this into our writing too which has had a World Book Day focus.
As you may be aware, on Thursday we celebrated World Book Day. What a treat it was to see our children dressed up as their favourite book characters. To celebrate the day, we took part in lots of exciting activities, including creating our own Supervillain and escaping the Library through solving SPAG and Maths based problems. The class even went on to have an exceptionally arty afternoon linked to our acclaimed author Roald Dahl. The class created mirror image portraits of Roald Dahl and they are absolutely outstanding! They are so good in fact that Mrs Fitchett it submitting some to an art exhibition. What an achievement Team CB!
Elsewhere, this week we have also had a Spanish food tasting afternoon. We tried lots of traditional Spanish delicacies including Tapas, Gazpacho, Churros, Paella and Spanish omelette. The children were so passionate about this session and committed well to trying almost everything. The winners of the day were Churros and Paella although the same could not be said for the Gazpacho.
We have also completed some more of our Music syllabus where we have been practicing the Dragon Song. We are working on singing lead and second vocals for the chorus currently, as well as using the glockenspiels to accompany the chorus.
In our computing, we have completed our coding work this week and created our own interactive scenes. The children have done an astonishing job at this and have included alert commands, timers, repeat commands and collision detections to name but a few elements of code.
Like I say, it has been an incredibly busy week back and I cannot wait to see all the fantastic things we achieve in the coming few weeks of Spring 2.
