Swans and Ducks will be adding regular updates about their learning to this page. Enjoy!
Another week down! Some fantastic effort from all children in their final versions of the Oliver Jeffers book 'A heart and the Bottle'. The children are really showing a keen interest in their writing, producing some well written stories, as well as working collaboratively to edit and improve before final production on the laptops. We are very impressed.
In maths we have been developing our reasoning and problem solving skills, not only answering questions but all trying to develop their ability to explain and justify why their answers are correct. We have had a focus on comparing and ordering number to 1000.
We have also written letters back to our parents this week, in role as WW1 soldiers in the trenches. We learnt about what it would be like, how it would have felt and what would have happened and used these facts in our letters.
Finally we were able to use Now Press Play for our science lessons this week, where we immersed ourselves in a story about an emperor needing different rocks to build his temple. The children were all very engaged and took part in a quiz afterwards to gather all the information they had discovered about rocks.
I am excited to let you all know that we have joined TTRockstars to support the learning of times tables here at Jupiter. Today the children have been sent home with their own log in details. Keep these safe! You can access the website through the link attached. You will need to click on 'login' and 'school pupils'. Please feel free to feed back any information once your child has had a go at home, such as ease of use and engagement.
We have been hard at work, learning about prefixes and suffixes within our literacy learning, based on the book 'The Heart and the Bottle'. We have learnt the rule of changing a y to an i if we are adding 'ness', but some of us got a little stumped when we got to shyness. But every rule has its outliers.
In maths we have been focusing on place value, and solving problems about 100's, 10's and 1's. Also remembering the 0 has to be a place holder if there isn't a number in that column; for example 602, needs to have the zero even though we know there are no 10's other wise it would read 62. Same for knowing 183 isn't written 100803. :)
Also delving into the trenches this week, and understanding how soldiers lived within them.
We will also begin our practices for the Harvest festival so please help with learning lines at home.
Photos will be added to individual class pages, so that it is easier to find the most relevant.
