Super Science!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week we enjoyed sharing our science work with our Year 1 buddy classes! We took our books into the hall and told Year 1 all about the wonderful work we have been doing. We are following up our work with our homework this week, which is to find different plants in your garden or near your house and make a list. You can draw them too if you like! Our main focus in science for the next few weeks is plants. Today, we planned an experiment to investigate what happens to plants when you change factors such as their leaves, the light they get or the water they have. We are going to see how not having these things effects our plants! Poor plants, we are sorry in advance...

In maths, we have focused on 2D shapes and their properties. We have looked at the angles they have and the lines they have, recognising parallel and perpendicular and all the angle family!

This week's spellings are from our 109 words that Year 3 and 4 need to learn. We are doing them all in alphabetical order, so some may be ones we have had previously:

accident

accidentally

actual

actually

address

although

answer

appear

arrive

believe

Happy practising!

This weekend and following week are meant to be beautiful. Don't forget to bring your sun cream to school if you need it! Enjoy your weekend!

Egyptian travel agents!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week we have researched aspects of Ancient Egypt to put in our very own holiday brochure. We have looked at lots of brochures for research and made a note of all the features they have. The children loved looking at the different ways the brochures were folded and their heads are flooded with ideas about how they can make their brochure exciting! Next week, we will be starting to make our brochures. This week's literacy homework is to find 3 facts about Ancient Egypt, and we will be including these in our brochures.

In maths we have been introduced to the angle family! We have focused mainly on finding right angles in shapes and in our environment. We can now recognise that acute angles are smaller than right angles and obtuse angles are bigger than right angles. Next week we will be looking at 3D shapes!

This weeks spellings are:

rectangle

triangle

circle

hexagon

square

shape

angle

parallel

vertical

horizontal

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend. Don't forget to come in your sports clothes and coloured t shirt on Monday ready for sports day! Make sure you do your sun dances in aid of the occasion.

Auto or biography

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week in Hawthorn class, we have been researching J K Rowling, the author of Harry Potter. We have found out lots of facts about her life and were very surprised to hear how much she was worth!! We plan to write a biography about her next week to run alongside us reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (we are more than halfway through!).

In our topic lessons we have focussed on Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and have written descriptions of the main ones. We are working in partners to conduct our own 'Egypt's got talent!' next week, where we will present our descriptions and actions for the Gods. The children are really excited about this, as am I!

In maths, we have continued to look at digital time and how this shows us times to the hour e.g. 50 minutes means ten to. This has been a little confusing, but the children have worked really hard at this and it is clicking (or ticking!).

This week's spellings are:

climb

thumb

happiness

unhappy

everybody

know

angrily

carefully

cautiously

surprisingly

Happy practising!

Have a great weekend everyone, I've heard it is meant to be beautiful!

A beautiful week!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

What a wonderful week we have had this week- well treated to the gorgeous weather and with our hard work!

The children have made a fantastic effort with their newspaper reports this week and have researched lots of information about the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb! Very professional! They have also researched Egyptian gods and goddesses and their mythical powers. It has been such an interesting week, and both the children and I have learnt a lot! So much so that this week's homework is set around our Egyptian topic. We would like you to design a poster to demonstrate what you have learnt so far. You could include pictures, writing, facts and trivia about Egypt. I'll look forward to seeing these on Wednesday!

In maths we have continued to look at time, focusing mainly on digital time and comparing this to analogue. We have also written the time in words and matched all three together! Go us!

This week's spellings are:

although

caught

different

early

enough

often

peculiar

special

every

misbehave

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend! Try to remember this one is only two days rather than the luxury of the three we had last week!

Welcome back!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

I hope you all had a wonderful break away! We have loved being treated to some sunny weather this week and have made the most of being outside without getting soggy.

This week we have begun our new topic of Egyptians, and the children are loving it already!! We have already learnt lots of facts and are thirsty to discover more! Please feel free to send anything you find out at home in to school to share with everyone, we would love to see. By the time these children get to Summer, they will be archaeologists already!

In maths, we have taken mini a break from fractions and have started to look at time. In year 3, we will be looking at both digital and analogue time, including roman numerals. Any practise at home for this maths topic is good practise, so please feel free!

This week's spellings are all words with silent letters:

answer

island

length

strength

knock

climbed

taught

night

knight

pyramid

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Hopefully the sun will continue, although I hear we may be getting a little bit of thunder... uh oh!
