This week in writing we looked at a new word ‘onomatopoeia’ and learnt the meaning of it. We then used onomatopoeia words to write a poem on George making a medicine to cure his Grandma. In our poem we included adjectives to describe the unusual ingredients added. Once we were happy with our poems we drew them out to help us perform them in class.
In maths we looked at equivalent fractions and how they can be simplified. We used lots of practical methods to help us understand.
Not only have we been doing a daily mile to get in some exercise we have also enjoyed using our new skipping ropes at break time and are getting so much better at jumping in!
I had to go for two learners of the week again this week and they were:
Mason R – for showing remarkable resilience and not giving up during our daily mile. You have also worked incredibly hard on fractions in maths this week and wrote a lovely George’s Marvellous Medicine poem. What a fantastic week!
Emily – for being so resourceful and reflective in her learning, always. I have been so impressed with you using pictorial representations to help you with fractions in maths this week. Your confidence increased as the days went on and it was so lovely to see your pride when you got your answers correct.
Miss Cooke paid us a visit on Friday to announce the winner of the reading competition that took place during the Easter holidays, was in our class! Well done to Isaac who won a £10 Waterstones gift voucher. Also congratulations to Hugo, Bilal and Fahad who received a certificate for taking part. Well do to all our achievers this week!
