Over the last few weeks we have been working very hard in DT to create junk-model vehicles! First we researched different vehicles to see what features they had. We then designed our vehicles then spent two weeks making our vehicles with a partner. Thank you for all the materials you brought to school to help us!
On Friday the children took part in our charity event Bark Off. Thank you for all the money you raised for Birmingham Dog's Home! It was lovely to see the children dressed up and they really enjoyed eating their cakes and having a good chat. Also a special thank you for all the children and parents/cares that spent the time decorating a cake for the competition.
Well done to James (our school councilor) for being extremely responsible collecting the children's money and taking special care of the decorated cakes!
On the last day of term the children took part in some Halloween activities. The children made an amazing effort with their costumes and looked fantastic! We sat in a circle and every child had the opportunity to stand up and show off their costumes while explaining who they were. We then had some free choice activities including colouring, word searches, spider maze, pumpkin designing etc. The children had a fantastic time! Thank you to the parents who brought in sweets for the children to take home and thank you to all the parents for all their hard work on the costumes.
At the start of the week we completed a practical activity based on partitioning two digit numbers into tens and ones. The children were fantastic at using their diennes equipment to partition the numbers. They were then encouraged to add on ten and see how the number had changed. We asked question such as what will the new number be? Which digit is changing? etc. Some children worked with an adult to find different ways to partition for example: 60 + 2 = 62, 50 + 12 = 62, 40 + 22 = 62 ...
As part of our settling into school activities, the children were asked to design what their perfect classroom would look like. We had a lot of fun discussing the amazing and crazy things we would like to have at school. The children loved the activity and put a lot of hard work into their drawing, colouring and labeling.
