Comet Class Weekly News 13th May 2022

Miss Mandelson - 13 May 2022

A Word of Warning!
 
It was lovely to welcome our Year 5 friends into Comet Class this week whilst the Year Six children were busy with important business.  As we did not have the Year 2s with us, we decided to save the big reveal of our new class text until they returned so they would not miss out.  Instead we had great fun exploring other cautionary tales by Hilaire Belloc, including 'George, who played with a dangerous toy and suffered a catastrophe of considerable dimensions'.  Having read the opening lines where George's grandmamma gives him an immense balloon as a reward for being good, the children set about predicting what the 'catastrophe of considerable dimensions' might turn out to be.  Take a look at their wonderful comic strips which they used to explain the possible consequences:

The children also did some 'short-burst' writing in the form of a thank you letter from George to Grandmamma.  Some of them really managed to capture the humorous and exaggerated style of Hilaire Belloc.  Today, the Y2s came back to us and we returned to the story of Jim.  Having used clues from the cover to make predictions last week, the children set about composing possible titles for the story in their own words, using the structure of titles of other cautionary tales to help them.  Needless to say, quite a few shining stars were awarded (see below for some examples).

In Mathematics, we have continued to keep our knowledge of multiplication facts bubbling away by completing a collaborative sorting activity involving multiples (similar to the tricky question in last week's My Maths homework for the Y4s).  It was great to hear the children's discussion and reasoning as they decided where to place their numbers on the Venn diagram.  We have also continued with our work on Fractions with the older children focussing on recognising, identifying and counting in tenths, whilst the Y2 children worked with Mrs Johnson to get to grips with quarters.  A big thank you to Mrs Marley who covered in Comets on Monday morning for me whilst I spent some quality, focussed time with the Y2 children revising maths concepts from earlier in the year.  Well done, Y2s, you all worked really hard and shone like stars.

Whilst Mrs Marley was with Comet Class, there was a special delivery:  our next postcard from Paddington telling us all about the important work of UNICEF in Nepal.  The children worked really hard across several areas of the curriculum to produce some great fact files whilst also comparing monthly rainfall in London and Kathmandu and presenting the data in graph form.  Super cross-curricular work including a bit of English, Maths, Geography, Science and PSHE.  The children worked really well together to 'embrace the wider world' (which is our golden thread for this half-term).


 
Well done, everyone, for all you have achieved this week.  Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
Miss Mandelson
