Today for our practical in Science we split into groups of two. The children looked at creating a full circuit using a power supply, buzzer, wires and a light bulb. Then they looked at when circuits break and when they aren’t complete. They had to problem solve in identifying how to make a full circuit while working in teams.
Today we practiced our money skills by creating our very own Croft Shop in Birch. The children had a handful of objects that were labelled with a price tag and they were given random amounts of money. The children came up and asked for the object that they wanted and had to give Mrs Dunn the correct change.
The children were super excited to give the correct amount to Mrs Dunn and to receive their object!
Today we recapped our knowledge of what a noun was. The children were asked what a noun was and all of them said a person, place or thing. The children were asked to pick an object and to tell staff what the noun was. We then looked at a PowerPoint to help explain what a expanded noun was. The children had to choose the adjectives to develop an extended noun.
The children were asked to identify what a noun was in each sentence, before selecting adjectives.
Today for our Maths lesson we have started to learn about MONEY! We created our own shop and we had to use money to buy what we wanted. We had to challenge ourselves to see if we had enough for what we wanted. We had to count out the correct amount and we had to recognise the correct coins.
Today in primary the pupils participated in a Reward Easter Hunt in the garden working together to find chocolate chicks and a special super searcher found a chocolate Easter lolly. The reward was to say a great big thank you to everyone for all their hard work during Reading, RWI and Reading for pleasure. The pupils have shown how all the hard work has paid off because of how amazingly they are all reading.
After lunch Rowan class in primary voted to have a little extra play time to improve their fitness and Health and well being especially now the weather is getting better. This has helped improve their concentration during afternoon lessons. Greater friendships have formed and greater understanding of others’ abilities during play.
