P4 have been learning how to multiply numbers and also the relationship between addition and multiplication.
They used lots of practical activities and concrete apparatus to visually see what was happening during the calculations.
Article 28-We all have the right to a good quality education.
P4 had a brilliant first swimming lesson of the year.
All children showed good confidence in the water and some who were wearing armbands at the beginning of the lesson weren’t wearing them by the end of the lesson.
Super progress was made! Well done P4!
Article 31-We all have the right to relax and play.
P4 have been studying Cuba as part of their international links.
The children have been learning how to salsa. They have developed their skills and confidence and enjoyed performing in front of an audience.
They worked on their evaluation skills by providing good suggestions how dances could be improved.
Article 24-We all have the right to be healthy and happy.
P4 are budding scientists and they like nothing better than seeing science in action!
They have been learning all about the digestive system and how the food we eat makes its journey through our body.
They carried out their own investigation to see how the digestive system works, then labelled diagrams. Lots of questions were asked during the lesson. Much fun was had by all and great learning!
Article 13-I have the right to ask questions and be given information.
In English P4 are enjoying reading The Demon Dentist by David Williams.
The children enjoyed taking part in Drama where they took on the role of one of the main characters, Alfie.
There was good discussion as to whether Alfie should go to the dentist and face the Demon Dentist.
A conscience alley was set up, where ‘Alfie’ was given advice on what he should do.
The children took on roles with enthusiasm and gave great advice…but will Alfie take it?
Article 28- We all have the right to a good quality education.
Today P3 learnt about Remembrance Day.
Miss Robson put a picture on the whiteboard and asked “Who is this?”
P3 thought that the photograph was old and he looked like a soldier.
We then looked at artifacts belonging to the soldier to discover that his name was Ernest Johnson Glaholm or “Uncle Ernie” to Miss Robson.
We also discovered that he was a Sergeant and got the Military Medal for bravery and was in the London Gazette.
We worked out that he was 24 years old when he joined the army and served for 8 years.
We looked at Sgt. Ernest Johnson Glaholm’s Soldier’s book and were able to gather additional information about him, such as who his family were and where he served.
We also spoke about the poppy and why it is important. We looked at the story ‘Poppy Field’ by Michael Morpurgo and created poppy field pictures.
On Friday we are going to create some poems, keep a look out for them.
Just a little reminder that poppies are on sale in school.
Lest we forget.
In P3 we communicate in many different ways. Today we enjoyed playing games using our PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) communication books.
Mr Potato Head
Pupils had to request the different body parts for Mr Potato Head using PECS. This meant being able to recognise and match a symbol to the object before attaching the body part to the correct place.
As you can see we had lots of fun.
