Weekly update - 24.1.2020

Miss Asker and Mrs Hatch - 24 Jan 2020

We have had a great week again in school this week. On Monday some of our children represented  the school in a Key Steps Gymnastics Competition – Maisy and Ava report:
 
On Monday (the 20th January 2020) a team from Tigers ( Olivia  , Mark , Ted, Matilda and Autumn) went to Ripon Leisure Centre with another team from Panthers ( Ava, Harrison , Maisy, Emmerson and Alice) to take part in a gymnastics competition.
 
During the competition we had to compete in the body management routine, the floor exercise and the vault. Everyone had a really good day and tried their hardest.
 
We were really proud of our results - Panthers came 6th out of 10 (only 2.1 points away from 1st) and the Tigers  came 3rd.

In English this week we have looked carefully at the texts inside the book ‘Rainforest Rough Guide’ and thought about how the information on the page was organised. We then considered the purpose of each text and how we felt when reading it. In whole class guided reading the children were very excited to open our book which they have had lots of clues about and have been making some super predictions on. The book was finally revealed and we are looking forward to reading more of ‘The Matchbox Diary.’


In Maths this week, we have we have continued our work on fractions finding fractions of quantities. We have focused on the whole, how many equal parts it is split into and then have applied our knowledge of division and have used bar models to help us – particularly with our problem solving.
 
In Computing we further developed our knowledge of formulas in Excel and use this to sort and organise data in a hockey league table. I was very impressed with the children and how quickly they picked this up.
 
Our Year 5 children enjoyed a cooking session with Mrs Brassington on Monday afternoon. They made a Cuban dish called Picadillo and the smells wafting into the classroom were making everyone hungry. We hope you enjoyed eating it at home. All the children will be given the opportunity to cook with Mrs Brassington over the next few weeks (this will normally be on a Wednesday.)
 
In Geography, we looked at the difference between climate and weather and we looked into what a tropical climate would be like and in particular the climate of a tropical rainforest. The Year 3/4 children wrote postcards home and the Y5/6 children wrote a weather forecast having watched a short video of a presenter explaining how he told the weather.

My Maths homework is online and I have noticed that some of the children have already completed this – well done. Please can you also make sure that you hear your child read at home at least 5 times a week. If anyone can volunteer to come into school to hear some of our children read we would be very grateful. Thank you to Mrs Petchey who gave up her Wednesday afternoon to help at Forest School (especially as it was her birthday!) We truly appreciate all the help given to us at school by parents and the benefits for the children are enormous.   
 
Miss Asker will be out on Monday morning so Mrs Cooper will be taking the class. Have a lovely weekend.
