Growing In Faith and Learning
It has been 2 busy weeks in school with book week and maths week. The children really enjoyed dressing up on World Book Day. They all looked great.
In book week, Robins looked at the story of the Three Little Pigs which they retold using stick puppets. They made their own pigs as well as making houses out of different materials. They wrote captions for what the characters might say. In Real Life Maths week, they enjoyed utilising our Dinosaur Museum including using money and buying tickets. We set up our own post office and undertaken activities designing own stamps, comparing the size and weight of parcels as well of writing letters.
Kingfishers looked at Little Red Riding Hood during World Book Week and compared two different versions; they looked at story sequencing and wrote Wanted posters for the Wolf. In Real Life Maths week, they have been looking at transport and paying for bus tickets and undertaking traffic surveys and displaying data. They also designed Road safety posters which we have shared with the Robins class. In RE, they started our new theme focusing on why Christians celebrate Easter.
In Owls, Real Life Maths week focused on St Leonard’s Café where children have measured out ingredient to make and sell in the Café. In Book Week, they looked at the true story of the Three Little Pigs which shows how the poor wolf was framed. They had a mock Court to argue whether the wolf was guilty or innocent. They also wrote instructions for baking a cake for the wolf’s Granny.
Kestrels have been writing their own middles to the Maleficent story. They watched the beginning and the end and have been filling in the gaps. They enjoyed Real Life Maths week by designing their own theme parks. At the moment they are working out if they've made a profit or a loss. Today we have started our weaving. In Science, we've started a new topic on changing materials.
Falcons have been undertaking Real Life Maths linked to lemonade. They have surveyed the school about their favourite soft drinks and produced pie charts to reflect the outcomes. They have taste tested lemonade to see if they could spot which lemonade had the highest cost per 25ml. They also measured ingredients and produced their own lemonade working out ratios and profits. As well as lots of Maths, they have designed their own advertising posters for their own lemonade products.
