We are writers

4H have been working really hard to write about what Fairtrade is and how we can help to support this co-operative organisation. Your vocabulary choices are becoming so much more effective, everyone and I am really proud of how hard you have tried to plan in and include a variety of different fronted adverbials!

I look forward to reading and marking these pieces of writing in preparation for the production of our final product.

We are dividing by 100

This week, we have been practising dividing by 100. To do this we have been dividing by 10, then dividing by 10 a second time. Using place value grids and counters has really helped some of us to see the division happening and therefore understand that we move the digits two columns to the right to divide a number by 100.

Well done everyone! Let’s continue to remember that it is okay to use the resources around the room to help us understand what we are doing.

We have been thinking about Fairtrade this week. Everyone has researched facts to present in a beautiful two-peace spread! Even Nibbles and Queenie got in with the action of researching information!

We are Crew Haycock!

Crew Haycock smashed this week’s crew challenge. They were incredibly competitive at first but began to give each other encouragement and support as the challenge progressed. They used a range of skills including counting in multiples of ten to predict when they would be ‘out’ as well as throwing and catching skills.

The bagels were cooked to perfection too: thank you chefs!

We are getting quicker!

4H have been practising how to find words in a dictionary. It has certainly been interesting and the children have really had to grapple with the process of how to do this. As we made great strides of improvement yesterday, I began racing the children to see who could find the stated word the quickest. Methmi and Poppy were not happy that they were only a couple of seconds slower than I was! Maybe next week they will beat me…

We have had great fun this week writing our own descriptions of different rooms within Mr Wonka’s chocolate factory! Ideas were bubbling and expanded noun phrases were brewing then the creativity was really let loose!

I look forward to marking your final drafts.
