We were very excited to be learning about algorithms in our computing lessons. We found out that an algorithm is a set of instructions! We used a programme called Scratch Jr. on the iPads and we created an algorithm to make the cat move in a square. Once we’d mastered the controls, we were allowed to create our own algorithm. We then got creative and … Continue reading Awesome algorithms!
We have been completely amazing in maths this week – Miss Brazier is so impressed with us! We have learnt the terms: numerator, denominator and vinculum. This helps us explain our fractions. The numerator is the top number, the denominator is the bottom number and the vinculum is the line that splits them up! We have learnt how to find half of a shape and … Continue reading Fantastic Fractions!

We also learnt that we can smudge it with our finger which makes the mark softer, or press harder with the end of the charcoal which makes sharper … Continue reading Exploring with charcoal

This is what we’re now practising everyday in the classroom.We need to know our 5 … Continue reading Rock around the clock!
We have been exploring continents! We dove deeper and found out all of the countries within a continent. We then expanded our knowledge even more by finding out some of the human and physical features of countries. We learnt that human features are man-made and physical features are created by nature!Who can remember some of the human and physical features we found in England? Continue reading Continents, countries and geographical features!
Today was a creative experience full of colour and sparkles! We created glitter mindful jars to help us relax and feel happy. It would be amazing if you would allow the children to teach you how we created them, so they could use them at home if they ever need a bit of cheering up. We also learnt how to trace a picture and use … Continue reading The Artful Owls.
