Homework and Spellings

Coming this Friday! 

What's Going On!?

What an incredibly busy first few days. We've done loads of work on Place Value, playing games and making up new rules, and we've started our English unit studying 'The Jungle Book'. So far we've looked at the old fashioned language and had a go at turning it into more modern English!

And it's only Tuesday!

2015-2016

Life after SATs! - 16th May 2016

The class did tremendously well in their exams, and after a well earned party / rounders afternoon, we've all been hard at work writing our own stories in the style of 'The Lost Happy Endings'.

Using Talk for Writing, we've studied the book in great detail, taken in apart, and now we've put it back together but with our own twists and turns!

Come back soon to see examples of the children's work!

Computing - 1st February 2016

We've been looking at Computing Simulations. First things first, we had a chat about what a Simulation is and how they 'work' in the real world.

We discussed: CAD, Pilots, Racing Drivers, Doctors and Virtual Reality.

We also talked about how much time and money could be saved by simulating something first - not to mention people's lives!

The children then had a play with Scratch, teaching themselves how to program their own simulations.
