Welcome to Redwood Class

What a half term! I hope you all have a lovely break. 

 

Below, I have attached some examples of identifying unit and non-unit fractions of a whole and of amounts. 

Fractions

Friday 12th March 2021

 

What a lovely week we have had! The children have settled back into school brilliantly and it really does feel as though they have never been away.

 

We have been working hard learning our new model text- How to Cook a Rainbow. The children have text mapped this and have all brought home a copy (along with a a copy of the model text) so that they can practise this over the next few days. They will be retelling this on Tuesday so please support them in learning this. 

We had a lovely lesson on conductors and insulators and the children were able to test different materials in a circuit to see if electricity passed through them. 

We have also been learning how to add and subtract amounts of money and calculate the correct change. We did this using a number line. I have included an example below so that you can go over this is you would like to. 

Calculating Change

What a busy Half Term! The children have settled in well and they’ve been working extremely hard in all areas of their learning.

 

Our class text ‘WildSpark’ has been used to inspire our class work. During art lessons, the children developed their watercolour painting skills by looking at and discussing paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe. As well as this, they practised specific techniques that she used. They then used these to create their very own mystical landscape- similar to those described in the book.

 

Sadly, as you are unable to view the work in school, I have uploaded a photo of our ‘WildSpark’ display. The paintings are beautiful and the children should be very proud of themselves!

Having spoken to a number of parents about suitable texts which your child may like to read at home, I have attached a list of books which are ideal for this year group. There are some fantastic books on the list so please take a look.
