This morning we have had an outdoor maths session. We set up five different stations and each group had a turn at the different activities. The activities included measuring capacity, measuring length, making 2D shapes, making symmetrical patterns and using chalk to set maths problems for each other to solve.
Today, Cherry class were visited by the Author Michael Walter, writer of the Buzzy Friends series. Michael spent some time telling us about his stories, read our favourite one aloud and answered questions that we had for him. It was really interesting to speak to a real author and find out about his job, especially as some of us have become real life authors with our poems published in a book!
It has been another busy week in Cherry class with lots of preparation for SATs going on. We have been revising lot of the concepts covered in Maths over the year and in particular this week we have looked at partitioning, rotation, multiplication and division. Can you challenge the children to find out how much they remember?
This week we have been spending the afternoons learning about the Easter Story. We have learnt about all of the significant events in the final week of Jesus' life, as well as his resurrection on Easter Monday.
On Tuesday we focused on Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode to Jerusalem for the final time. Watch our stories to find out more...
This week we have been exploring the poem 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright. We sat in the newly decorated book corner as Miss Chapman first read the poem to us, and then we realised something... the book corner was the Magic Box from the poem! The poem includes many magical objects including; cowboys on broomsticks, a black sun, a Chinese dragon and a leaping electric fish, all of which are in our book corner! We got into small groups and drew story maps to learn a part of the poem off by heart. Once we were confident with the words, we added movements and props ready for performance.
