A busy day.

This morning in guided reading we read the sea-witches spell and had to pick out the rhyming words. The spell is from our new book about pirates, which we’re really looking forward to reading next term.

In spellings, we learnt about the dge ending. Here are some of our sentences and other words that apply to this rule.

Maths Working Wall

We have moved on to addition and subtraction in maths and today we used our working wall lots to help us with our learning. As you can see, we have discussed what we noticed and which mistakes we need to look out for!

Some of us drew bar models in our books and wrote the four fact families.

In our daily spelling lessons we are learning about the or sound spelt a. This is a very tricky sound because there are lots of ways to spell it.  We drew shapes around the words to help us remember that tall letters come after the a.  We were challenged to write sentences with spelling words and a Word of the Week in them.

We’re also working hard on our hot tasks and these should be finished tomorrow so we can Seesaw them on Friday.

Super Spellings and Handwriting

This morning in spellings we recapped the different ways to spell the j sound. For our activity we wrote the words in chalk on the playground remembering to put each word in the right box.

In the afternoon we did handwriting and Mrs Brewis awarded two of us with a pen licence for consistently joining our handwriting in all of our books.  This means that we can use a handwriting pen for handwriting lessons.

Global Week

Maple Class are learning about Woodland habitats for Global Week. Today in maths we had to measure different animals that live in Woodlands in cm.  It was quite tricky to put the ruler in the right place but we all enjoyed it.

Later in the afternoon we did some science and began to classify different animals.  We’ll finish this tomorrow.

Some of us went to Avon Valley College to take part in an athletics festival and we won some medals and were also extremely excited about wearing the Woodborough PE Kit.
