Stories with Familiar settings

In English this half term we have been enjoying the book The Pirates Next Door by Jonny Duddle. We have acted out the story using Talk For Writing. We thought of questions we would like to ask the characters and then used our story voices to ask and answer questions with a partner. Some characters even received letters from us.

Non- chronological reports

We have been writing our own Non-chronological report on dogs. To provide us with all the information we need to write one, we had a visit from Pendle Dogs In Need.  Sharon brought in her dog calle Evie and we talked about how we look after dogs. The children loved this exeprience and asked Sharon lots of really good questions.

Mathematics

In mathematics we have spent some time looking at place value. We have looked at the value of different digits within two digit numbers and have experimented making them using a varitey of apparatus. We have then used our knowledge of place value to help us tackle both addition and subtraction problems. Mrs Ellis has set us lots of challenging tasks to help us become more independent learners in Mathematics.

 

Geography

We found out what ‘birds eye view’ means. We used aerial maps and our local knowledge to draw maps of the area around the school. On our maps we included a key to show what the different symbols represented.

History

We walked round the school building to identify changes that had taken place over time. We interviewed Mrs Walton and discovered that the school was first built in 1977 but had been extended several times.

Did you Know the school was built on the site of Reedley Farm?

PHSE

We talked about feelings and the importance of our actions on other peoples feelings. We have been taking part in lots of roleplay to help us to see things from other peoples point of view.
