PUPILS OF THE WEEK

Curie Class: This week I have chosen three children: Lize, Finley and Michael. They have shown a fantastic attitude to learning this week. I am very impressed with their hard work and dedication towards school. They have been trying really hard to develop their skills in both maths and English. What a great start to the new half term, keep it up guys!

Hudgell Class: I have also chosen three children: Oscar, Gee and Jack.  All three have really worked hard on improving their independent writing and it is evident in their work (Oscar for his account of Boudicca; Gee for his truly vivid character description of Miss Root and Jack for the endurance he has shown by improving his handwriting and writing in paragraphs).  Well done to you all and keep up the great work!

MATHS: Written methods

Today we will be learning how to use a written method to multiply a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. You will notice that the column method is not used in today's learning (unless you use it in the challenge question)! This is because we want to make sure that you understand how place value works when exchanges are made, for example: 12 ones can be exchanged for 1 ten and 2 ones. Number lines are shown because they also help our brains to calculate mentally.
Good luck and we look forward to receiving your work 😉

WE WILL BE CONTINUING TO WORK ON MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS SO PLEASE PRACTISE YOUR TABLES (A GRID IS PROVIDED IN THE HOMEWORK SECTION OF OUR WEB PAGE) AND CONTINUE TO USE ROCK STARS (IF YOU HAVE FORGOTTON YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD ASK YOUR TEACHER FOR A REMINDER). wink

Friday English

handwriting

Let's practise some handwriting. You can pause the video at any time. Please use a sharp pencil or a pen, don't rush - take your time. Each word is presented three times. Try to be as precise as you can. Good luck;-)

PE! Over the next few weeks we would like you to create a sequence of movements to represent food travelling through your body from the mouth to digestion to excretion.

First, have a look at this exciting video presented by the Van Tulleken twins, Chris and Xand, who are both doctors, showing a live recording of a camera passing through Chris's body from entering his mouth to excretion from his bottom.
After that, we would like you to have a look at the next video showing how food is broken down in the mouth by the teeth so that you can create the first movements of your sequence. Please read the description accompanying the next video before you start so that you can ensure that you carry out the activity safely.

Types of Teeth | BBC Bitesize | science

Food begins its journey in our mouths and you are going to imagine that you are a piece of food being broken down by teeth today: canines, molars and incisors. Before you start the activity, think about your favourite food (this will start the production of saliva, which helps the teeth break down the food in your mouth so that it is ready to swallow). You are going to create a sequence of at least 3 different movements using the video and the present tense verbs used to help you: grinding, squashing, tearing, bouncing, slicing, ripping and crushing. Remember your movements (or write them down or record them) so that you can add to them next week. Have fun but ensure you are safe by only using the space available to you (all the movements can be done on the spot if your space is limited). Please ask your adult to supervise you with this activity.
