Class 12

Welcome to Class 12's wonderfully wacky
webpage!

 

Our Gold Book Superstars for Friday 2nd October are... Jamie and Jack! Well done guys!

Please feel free to contact us on our new class email address.
This is a great opportunity to share information, pictures and videos of things you may be doing outside of school, and will be a great talking point in class!

EXTREME EARTH!

In English have begun our Non-Chronological Reports about hurricanes. We have researched (thoroughly!) what hurricanes are, how they form, how dangerous they are and how to stay safe during a hurricane.
Next week we will be using all this super research to write our reports up - we can't wait!

In Maths we have been looking at the place value of decimals, and multiplied and divided by 10 and 100. 
We have continued on with our 'Who Wants to be a Times Tables Whizz?' and so many of the children now have a times table token on display. You are all on your way to becoming Times Tables Rockstars! 


This week we looked not only at hurricanes, but tornadoes, and located Tornado Alley in the USA. 
As well as this, we planned an emergency tornado kit with the essentials we would need if a tornado were upon us. The children had some great ideas about what a 'want' was, and what a 'need' was, meaning if a tornado were to hit Greasley we would most definitely be prepared!



In Science, we have continued looking at the life cycles of living creatures. This week we looked at the life cycle of a chicken! Once again Class 12 created some detailed life cycles which included correct terminology to describe each stage, and detailed illustrations to support our understanding.


The long jump was the focus of one of our PE sessions this week, with the children taking on various roles such as athlete, coach and judge. The children were in charge of measuring and recording their groups' jumps, as well as officiating what was a 'no jump'. 
Our official photographer managed to get a few photos too, check them out at the bottom of the page!

Stay cool Class 10

Additional information
Our teacher is Miss Marvin  and our Teaching Assistant is Mr Smith. 
We are also lucky to have Glenn for one of our PE sessions too!  

We have PE on the MUGA on Wednesdays, and PE in the Hall on Fridays. Children should bring their PE into school at the start of the half term and leave it for the half term so their kit is always in school. 
 
Our class email address is: class12@greasley.notts.sch.uk

Homework
Homework tasks and weekly spellings are set on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. 
Spelling tests are written in the back of the red homework book so parents can see results easily. 

In addition to set homework, children should read regularly and practice their basic Maths skills. Children in Year 5 should be able to mentally add and subtract numbers up to 100 and should be fast and fluent with all times tables up to 12 X 12. 


As well as this, children who are encouraged to read at home are five times more likely to overachieve in Reading at school than children who aren't. 

 


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.
