Willow Class Updates

Willow Class

Notices and Reminders

2nd February – KS2 enrichment day

Next week in brief: 

Next week in maths we will be learning to: multiply numbers by 4-digits by 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers

Next week in literacy we will be learning to: writing a newspaper report about the events of a short film

Take a look at what we have been up to:

Willow have been very busy this week in English looking at all of the different features of a newspaper. This will be based on a short film we have watched called the Lighthouse. The children have been role playing the different characters in the film and acting as news reporters. They had to think of questions they would ask the characters and discuss what the answers may be.

In computing we are starting to look at coding. On Monday we used the ‘code.org’ website to complete and design games using coding. The children had to build blocks of code to progress to the next level.

In maths we have been working on using long multiplication and breaking it down into different pictorial diagrams (this is linked to this weeks homework). It has really highlighted to the children the importance of knowing their times tables of by heart. Today they had to work together to solve an Nrich problem involving multiplication and division. It was really interesting listen to the different ways that the children were trying to work out the problems.

This week they have started their rugby training on a Wednesday. Although incredible muddy, they all  really enjoyed this and couldn’t wait to tell me all about it.

 

I would also like to make a special mention to Chloe who independently made a weather poster which is now proudly displayed on ‘Our Wonderful Work’ board in the classroom.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Turner
