Scrumdiddlyumptious

This week we visited Station Garden where we took part in a pizza making masterclass!

We also had a visit from a DHL Lorry this week to learn all about road safety. Miss Bone found it very exciting sitting in the drivers seat!

Week 5

Topic – Food

In our topic lessons this week the children were given the opportunity to paint their fruit models that they made last week out of clay. We have also been looking at what foods different countries are famous for, with the children’s task being to use their mapping skills to locate these countries on a map.

 

Maths – Fractions

In maths we have continued to explore fractions, this week moving onto looking at equivalent fractions. The children have really grasped their fraction knowledge this week, using more visuals and looking at different ways that we can go about obtaining an answer.

 

English – African Tales

Our focus in English this week has been looking at story introductions. We have read through some stories together, looking at the introduction in more detail seeing if there are any emerging themes. The pupils task was then to plan and write their own story introduction which is set in part of Africa.

Week 4

Topic – Food

Our topic lessons this week have focussed around art. We have planned and designed our own piece of fruit, using clay to create our finished designs. We have looked at the different techniques used when moulding clay, kneading and stretching it to make it easier to manipulate. We then used some clay tools to add fine bits of detail to our sculptures, to make them really come to life.

 

Maths – Fractions

Our maths lessons this week have continued to be focussed around fractions, specifically looking at tenths. We have gone into great detail being able to interpret our fractions in different ways, whilst learning about top heavy and mixed fractions and how we can convert between these. The pupils have continued to use their reasoning skills to be able to convince me that there answers for certain questions are correct, with them being able to justify their reasons and the way they went about obtaining their answer.

 

English – African Tales

In our English lessons we have continued to explore our class book of African Tales. As a class we have read through one of the stories in the book and created our own set of principles to abide by when reading a story. We have also begun to start exploring our senses when reading and writing, with the pupils being asked to produce a piece of work describing their ideal beach setting. Using our imaginations to take our minds on a journey to explore the scenery.

Here we are making some fruit kebabs and savory muffins!

Week 3

Topic – Food

In our topic lessons this week we have been using our growing knowledge of food to do some cooking. We have put our skills to the test to make some savoury muffins, using different ingredients that coincide with a balanced diet.

 

Maths – Fractions

In maths we have moved onto our new topic of fractions. We have been looking at unit and non-unit fractions. The children were given the opportunity to explore fractions using counters and different objects to highlight the fraction of different amounts. Over the week we have progressed onto looking specifically at tenths, whilst being able to use our reasoning knowledge to justify our answers.

 

English – African Tales

In English this week the children were given the opportunity to write their chapters for our class book of African Tales. The children were able to use their prior knowledge and planning from the previous weeks to create the next chapter in the book about their specific country. As well as writing our chapters we have use our editing skills to check back through our work and make any necessary adjustments to give our work more credibility.

Week 2

Topic – Food

In our topic lessons this week we have been learning all about the different food groups. The children have shared their knowledge of what a healthy diet would look like, compared to an unhealthy diet whilst understanding the reasons behind what makes foods good and bad. With their new found knowledge the children were given the opportunity to create their own healthy meal, focussing on eating foods in proportion.

 

Maths – Statistics

Our maths lessons have continued to be focussed around statistics with the children taking their learning into their own hands. Their task this week has been to plan and carry out their own investigation, gathering data from the rest of the class focussing on a specific topic. The children used tally charts to record their data before transferring it into bar charts and pictograms making it easier for them to interpret.

 

English – African Tales

In English this week we have begun to look at our class book of African Tales in more detail, with the children each been given a specific section to focus on and a particular country. The pupils task over the next few weeks is to plan and write another chapter of the book using the information that they extracted from the book so far and through the use of digital technology.

Week 1

Topic – Food

This week we have started our new topic based around food. The pupils were introduced to the topic by being given the opportunity to explore a wide range of different fruit and veg. We used our senses to analyse the foods finding their texture, smell and taste recording this information into a chart. The pupils also had the chance to put their art skills into action, sketching some of their favourite fruits adding all the fine pieces of detail.

 

Maths – Statistics

In our maths lessons this week we have been looking at interpreting data using pictograms and bar charts. The pupils have been given the opportunity to create their own pictograms and bar charts, challenging themselves by the amounts that they chose for each. The pupils have also been able to use their reasoning skills by answering and creating questions around a sets of data.

 

English – African Tales

This week in English we have begun to explore our new book of African Tales. Our aim for the first week back was to properly engage in the book. The children have been using their growing knowledge to look deep into the book using only the front cover as well as creating a poster based upon what we have read so far.

Here are some pictures of us exploring different foods
