The children co-operated well in groups to use a range of measuring equipment.

The children completed their Severn Trent Water Journey today.

ECO garden

We have been planting in the ECO garden. We weeded then planted seeds and seedlings in our raised bed.

Art - using observational skills to draw.

Using a step by step guide we drew a rainforest picture. This required good observational skills.

This is our new exciting book we are going to enjoy reading together:

Maths - Both year groups will be learning about place value for the next couple of weeks.

Cloud measuring.

As part of our Water topic, we have been looking at the water cycle and how clouds are formed.

We took our cloud measurers outside and counted and drew clouds.

Today we celebrated Red Nose Day, we wore red clothes or non uniform. The children donated lots of money!

We looked at how the time of day and the position of the sun can create shadows in different places.

Using a range of colours, everyone had the same outline yet created a unique piece of artwork.

Year 3 Maths

Today we started our fractions topic, we made a tower of 8 cubes and we split them into equal and unequal towers. We also had 6 squares of paper that we needed to cut into 2 equal parts and 4 equal parts. We also used Numicon to show how to make 6 using equal and unequal parts.

Children In Need 2020

We've had a great day in Kingfisher class, doing lots of Children in Need themed activities.  In literacy, we learned about the history of Children In Need.  In maths, we cracked a Children In Need themed code breaker.  We also all got very sweaty whilst taking part in the Joe Wicks PE challenge.  In the afternoon, we enjoyed some mindfulness activities and eating our delicious cakes from the cake stall. Take a look at the slideshow below.

Holiday Eco Challenge!

Kingfisher children chose a time each day where no power was used inside the home. Instead they got creative and made some of the following activities. 

4th November

L.I Revise concept of unit fractions

 

Today we had great fun building fraction walls. 

Half term ECO home challenge!

Millie's Magnificent Maths Homework. recognising 3-D shapes.

Tuesday, 13th October (YR 3)

L.I - I can describe the properties of 3D shapes, including the property of prisms.

Tuesday, 13th October (YR 4)

L.I - Measure in metres, centimetres and millimetres, understanding and using the relationship between them.

Children estimated and measured the length of the playground in m and cm. We used metre sticks to measure the playground. It was 24m and 40cm. Can you convert this measurement to just metres, centimetres and millimetres?

 

E.g. 37 m and 30cm = 37.3 m = 373cm= 3730mm

 

Monday, 12th October

 

L.I. Measure in centimetres and millimetres, understand the relationship between them, convert lengths between both units and record centimetres using decimal notation.

Children measured around their hands using string. First they  carefully drew around their hand with fingers spread out. They estimated the total length of the line they had drawn.  Once they had written their estimate, they got some damp string and carefully placed it around their hand outline, cutting any excess string off and measured with a ruler using cm's and mm's.

Thursday, 8th October - I can write a poem about a peculiar pet.
