The Year 5 life skills groups with Mrs Walton used weight and measure to bake cookies in preparation for the following days maths lesson about fractions.
They were rewarded for their hard work by eating the cookies after they divided them into the correct fractions.
This morning Mrs Robson and Emmeline were learning about money.
They discussed the value of different coins and notes then took it in turns to buy things at the Hub Shop!
Emmeline had great fun shopping for Waybuloo DVDs.
Today in Maths we have been making our very own clocks in preparation for our unit on Time. The children were great at adding the numbers in the correct order and we can’t wait to use them next week for some time telling fun!!
Well done everyone!

Class 6 had a go at using our awesome outdoor space to do some number practise and some counting. The children really enjoyed themselves and I was really impressed with their attitude and engagement!!
Well done Class 6
Troy, Liam, Lacey and Harley produced some beautiful work in maths today. They used multi-link cubes to develop their understanding of what volume is and how we can calculate it. I was very impressed with the mathematical language they used and by the end of the lesson we had achieved gold standard. Great work guys!
We have been so busy in Class 6 exploring different ways to measure length and height. The children have used standard and non-standard units to explore this. The children loved drawing around Mrs Langton, Mrs Hay and Mrs Stone to investigate how tall they were.
I wonder…can you measure your own height and write it in your homework book for an extra 10hps?
Year 1 have been trying really hard with time in maths this week. We have been looking at o’ clock and half past and the children really are becoming experts! Keep up the amazing work class 5. It is always time for you to shine!
Year 1 have been learning about time this week in maths. Today they worked in collaborative groups to match the written time to the analogue clock. To help your child at home, you could practise with them:
- saying or singing the months of the year and days of the week
- telling the time on an analogue clock for o’clock and half past the hour
If you can practise time at home, you will be awarded an extra 20 house points.
The children have been very busy in Class 6 revisiting and revising their money knowledge to help them add amounts.
This week Year One are busy learning all about 2D shapes. Can you go on a shape hunt at home to find some 2D shapes and talk about their properties? Take photos or draw them in your homework book. You will be awarded with 15 house points for doing some extra homework! Happy hunting!
Mrs Hay & Mrs Wallace 🙂
