Autumn Term 1
The Tufted Titmice have been busy learning about Place Value. Place value can be defined as the value represented by a digit in a number on the basis of its position in the number. By placing numbers under heading, it gives the digit its value. They have been learning how to multiply and divide by 10 and 100. Below are some pictures of they work so far.
Practicing their timestables has been taught throughout the week.
Autumn Term 1
The children have been looking at Explanation Texts. An explanation text is a non-fiction text which describes a process, for example: how bees make honey, how a car is made or how does a hor air balloon operate. It must includes a title, an introduction, present tense, time conjunctions such as "To begin with", "next", "21 days later" and also including facts. We have used text maps to help us. Have a look at some of the work the children have done.
Along side the this, the children have been practicing spellings, handwriting, punctuation and noun phrases.
This term we are studying The Pied Piper. The children have been reading the book and have watched a video which they have enjoyed. Below are some of the children work that they have done so far.

Mrs Bell has continued with the times tables awards this year, which take place during lunchtimes. Children are told when each test takes place so remember to practice. Practise papers are avaliable to collect from class or just download from here.

What an amazing start to the new term. The children have been busy this week learning all about The Lowry. They have learnt how to draw Lowry Landscapes and Industrial Landscapes. After learning the techniques, we invited the parents to come and see how the children were progressing and some of them joined in. Parent feedback was all positive and the children felt proud that their parents could see what they were doing in school.
Below are some pictures of the event.
Great Plague of 1665-1666
This term the children will be learning all about the The Great Plague.The Black Death was an epidemic of bubonic plague, a disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis that circulates among wild rodents where they live in great numbers and density. Such an area is called a ‘plague focus’ or a ‘plague reservoir’. Plague among humans arises when rodents in human habitation, normally black rats, become infected. The black rat, also called the ‘house rat’ and the ‘ship rat’, likes to live close to people, the very quality that makes it dangerous (in contrast, the brown or grey rat prefers to keep its distance in sewers and cellars).
