Welcome to Class 11!
Another super week this week! We have focused our attention on poetry this week and
produced our own poems relating to the evacuation of children during World War II. The children have been asked to perform their poems to you at home! They will be given out on Monday - I hope you enjoy them
We also had a visit from some real-life surgeons this week! They helped us learn some essential first aid skills - check out our photographs below!!
Hope you have all enjoyed the sunshine this week and have a lovely weekend outdoors!
We have turned our attention to some World War II poetry this week and have focused our attention on descriptive vocabulary and similes. Your children's wonderful imaginations have paid off once again! We looked at a series of pictures to base our ideas on:
I hope you all got the letters for our upcoming trip - thank you to those of you who have already paid, it should be great fun
Welcome to our new look website! We hope you enjoy the new design and find it a bit easier to look around!
Another great week this week as leader of the Class 11 dream team! We have concentrated heavily on writing this week and have produced some AMAZING descriptive writing. We have been reading the Michael Murpurgo book 'Friend or Foe' as our inspiration.
The book has inspired some great discussion about what it must have been like to be evacuated in WW2.
We also got a little green-fingered on Friday and helped to plot some plants ready for our sale on Grandparent's Day - check out our soily pictures!
We have spent the week looking at the evacuation of children in WWII. It's been really interesting listening to the thoughts of the whole class and discussing the mixture of emotions felt by those children at the time.
A huge thank you to everybody who has encouraged their children to bring in items to show and tell - it's been a MASSIVE help and the children are really engrossed in the topic which is simply fantastic!
Our Goldbook Superstars for Friday 12th May are:
Oliver and Liam!
Well done you two on a fantastic week
Please see homework attached at the bottom of this page!
Don't forget you can use the class email anytime to contact me if you have any questions on:
PE will now be on Tuesdays and Thursday - please make sure your child has the correct PE kit in school!
Check your 50 word spellings as often as you can. You have a copy attached in the back of your diary!
Each child has a spelling 'homework' folder to be completed and returned on a Thursday. This pack supports the children's folder that they have in school; everyday they will be carrying out a different spelling task that will help the children not only learn their spellings, but what they mean and how to use them.
Times tables - Who wants to be a times table whizz?
Across school, children will be taking part in 'Who wants to be a times table whizz?'
This involves children choosing a times table that they aren't yet confident with (from those that they are expected to know in their current year group), then learning this times table in school and at home in order to earn awards!
The times table awards are as follows:
Bronze award: children are able to say the times table in steps (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10...)
Silver award: children are able to recite the times table from 1x to 12x (e.g. 1 x 2 is 2, 2 x 2 is 4, 3 x 2 is 6...)
Gold award: children can answer any multiplication or division fact linked to their times table (e.g. what is four lots of two? How many twos make twenty four?)
Children must achieve all three awards in their chosen times table before moving on to a new times table.
