How to wash a what??

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week we have really enjoyed writing instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth! We have learnt the meaning of an imperative (bossy) verb and have been looking at how to use prepositions to describe our steps in more detail. We made some fantastic woolly mammoth washing toolkits with instructions on how to use each item. These even included unusual thing like a cake...

In maths we have completed looking at addition and subtraction. We have learnt about using the inverse (the opposite) to check our answers e.g. an addition to check a subtraction answer. We have now moved on to multiplication and will soon be looking at division!

This week's spellings are:

preparation

observation

reservation

exploration

explanation

alteration

temptation

accusation

where

wear

We discussed the definitions of these words as some of them are a little tricky!

Have a fabulous weekend! The weather is getting colder which means... ITS GETTING CLOSER TO CHRISTMAS!!!

Happy Hawthorns!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week has been a very friendly one in Hawthorn class. We have thought about how to keep each other feeling happy and have come up with solutions if our friends are not feeling their best. Everyone enjoyed our apple activity... ask your children about this at home!

In literacy we have finished writing our pirate newspaper reports. They look fantastic and very professional! In maths we have looked at using the inverse operation when adding and subtracting to check our answers, and to work out missing numbers.

We are all very excited to begin out new topic next week- WELCOME TO THE STONE AGE!

This week's spellings are:

adventure

creature

capture

nature

temperature

furniture

future

sculpture

feature

departure

Happy practising! The homework this week is a bit of an odd one... please could each child bring in a rock, no bigger than their own hand. We are beginning our new topic and will also be starting to look at rocks and soils in our science sessions so it would be really useful to look at a collection of rocks and be able to experiment on them! We will also be using our own rocks for something intriguing...

Have a lovely weekend.

Pirate authors!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This half term is over, and we can't believe how quickly it has gone! This week we have been authors of our own pirate stories, creating our own books. We even designed our own front covers! In maths we have been completing some tests, looking at what we have learned so far this year. The children approached these with such a positive attitude, well done!

The spellings for over the half term are:

dangerous

enormous

jealous

fabulous

nervous

ridiculous

famous

generous

Captain

honest

Most of our spellings this week have the suffix 'ous'. The final two are words we are trying hard to spell correctly.

The homework for the half term was sent home early this week due to a number of child absences and the fact we break up before Friday. Reading books were also changed in preparation for the week's holiday. For those children who were absent for the homework being given out... Literacy is to look at a newspaper at home over the holidays and make a list of all the features you can find e.g. photographs, headlines etc. If you would like to bring in the newspaper you have looked at after the half term, this is more than welcome, as long as the newspaper is of course appropriate for school. Maths homework is to practise your 2, 3 and 4 times tables and your 8 times tables if you are feeling like a challenge!

Thank you for all your support this half term. We are all looking forward to the next! Happy holidays everyone!

Miss B

Is it Christmas already??

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week has been a confusing week in Hawthorn class as we have spent a couple of session designing Christmas cards! Feeling festive nice and early this year!

In literacy we have been adapting the story of Kassim and the greedy pirate's treasure, changing the characters and making the story our own. We will be completing our stories on Monday. In maths we have been working hard on column subtraction. It was really difficult at first to remember not to add the numbers! We have just moved on to looking at what to do when we have to exchange numbers in the columns and will be working on this next week.

The spellings this week are:

impossible

polite

impolite

patient

impatient

perfect

imperfect

whether

weather

island

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend, I hear the sun is going to make an appearance and pretend its summers again!
