P4 have been learning about the value of each digit in numbers. We used lots of concrete apparatus to help us visually see the values. We are very proud of the progress we are making in maths.
P4 were visited by the school nurse as part of our topic, ‘Good to be Me’. The nurse discussed ways to keep our bodies healthy. We came up with some brilliant ideas and there was lots of discussion.
We talked about hygiene, eating healthily, exercise and looking after our teeth.
P4 have been reading The Demon Dentist by David Williams, as part of English lessons.
We have been thinking carefully about the characters in the story and how they were feeling at different points. We used drama to ‘hot seat’ the characters. We really enjoyed taking on different roles. We also used ‘role on the wall’ to discuss emotions and dilemmas within the story.
We can’t wait to find out what happens next!
P3 have spent this week learning about their host country Brazil.
We looked at the world map and found where Brazil was before going on Google Earth and looking at different places in Brazil.
CB “Brazil is in South America”
We learnt about Brazilian carnivals, we practiced dancing and made carnival masks.
In English we wrote invitations to our friends inviting them to our carnival.
We also looked at different types of Brazilian food and made some in class for our P3 Carnival.
We had to follow the recipes, taking it in turns and weighing the ingredients.
We made flour tortillas
We then had a party to share everything we had learnt with our friends.
These are some of the things our friends learnt.
Some very dodgy visitors came to P7 today as contenders for the English crown – William of Normandy (looked a lot like Mr Davis); Harald Hardrada (how scary was he!); Edgar Etheling (he was okay) and Harold Godwinson ( a bit sly!). The Witan (committee) interviewed each candidate, before making the final decision and voting for Edgar Etheling. Alas, history is a lot more blood thirsty and Harold Godwinson was the real winner back in 1066. Not for long though…
