Terms 5 & 6 2019
5th July 2019
Woodpeckers are reading the book 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton in class. We have been doing lots of English and Topic work based around this book. Today we worked in groups and created a freeze frame to represent one of our favourite scenes from the book so far!
3rd July 2019
Year 2 have been looking at position and direction in maths. Today we went outside to practise using some of our vocabulary. Our task was to work in pairs and take it in turns to direct our partner across the obstacle course that was laid out on the field. We used language like; forwards, backwards, 1/4 turn, 1/2 turn, 3/4 turn, clockwise and anti-clockwise to move our partner around the objects.
25th June 2019
Year 3 have been looking at time in maths. Today we practised timing in seconds. We used stop watches to time eachother how long it took to do specific tasks, such as; running a length of the playground, writing our name, doing 10 star jumps, ordering numbers 1-10 and taking our jumper off and putting it back on. Here we are taking part!
