We have been working really hard in year five getting our heads around fractions. Today we have been demonstrating that we really do understand fractions and can apply our knowledge!
Today in maths we have been looking at a chess-related puzzle ‘Bishop’s move’. This has really challenged the children to find the least amount of moves needed to move counters from one side to the other using the ‘bishop’ way of moving. There was a lot of frustration but it woke them up!
Fantastic result for year 5 and 6 boys and girls cross country teams who took part in the race at Lostock high school last week, not only were you a credit to the school- but you won!
In class 3b we have been writing more of our myths. We are getting to the exciting part where a Greek god appears and helps our hero on his quest. Normally we like to keep our tables tidy but we have been in the ‘writing zone’ all morning. This is what it looks like after an intense writing morning! It may look messy, but there is a place for everything!
Stay tuned for more fantastic myth writing news!
This is just one amazing beginning to our myths. Beautiful handwriting, fantastic vocabulary, direct speech and a gripping idea! The children have been peer assessing their partners work and have given constructive feedback for our editing lesson tomorrow. Can’t wait!
Keep up the good work 3B
Class 3b have had their weekly coding session in the ICT suite. They have all created a variety of very impressive apps! The future of computer programming!
In numeracy with Mr. Reynolds we have started looking at statistics. We have begun to collect and plot data and next week we will be looking at interpreting that data.
The children have been working as a team to solve a variety of word problems using column subtraction. Explaining a method to a partner has helped the children with their own learning consolidation! All before break!
Our new class book has arrived in 3b, perfect for this time of year! Muahahaha. (Evil laugh). So far, the children love it!
