Team CB Blog
The beautiful thing about learning is that it has no parameters. Everyone can teach someone something they did not know.
Welcome back to Team CB's blog page! This year has already got off to an absolutely fantastic start, with the children working incredibly hard over the last three days to really show what resilient and determined learners they are!
To kickstart our learning in Team CB we have been looking closely at our knowledge of place value this week. We have look at the different values digits have based on their position in a number and also how we can compare two numbers using < and >. Like that wasn't impressive enough, I have also had the delight at seeing how hard the class have been working to learn their times tables. They have spent 10 minutes each day trying to improve upon their last score and it has been with remarkable success! (I have seen a jump of 20 points in just 1 day - AMAZING!)
In Literacy we have been working incredibly hard on refreshing our memory of our spelling patterns and rules and also our SPAG. If you ask one of the class they may just tell you all about how we have been practicing punctuating speech using our phone game (a laminated version as opposed to the real deal). We have also began to explore our writing unit for the next few weeks which is centred around traditional tales. After some thorough reading we have now established that they often have villains, heroes and victims.
In our afternoons, we have already got stuck into our Ukulele practice and the class loved it! To work on building our relationships we have completed various team building tasks with high levels of success and also took the chance to learn things about one another.
Make sure you check back next week to see what we get up to!
