Problem solvers

This week we have been learning to solve mathematical one step word problems. Yesterday we discussed all the words we know for add  and subtract.  Today we worked together in groups to solve some problems, we had to think really hard.

History of Christmas 🎄 🎅🏻

We had a busy day yesterday and Greg Chapman came into school in the afternoon to teach us about the history of Christmas.  We learnt about the Christmas truce in WW1, that Princes Albert gave us the Christmas tree (he brought the tradition over from Germany) and that a long time ago London used to get lots of snow and the River Thames would freeze over, they used to build markets on the river and even drove horse and carts around it.  To finish the show he told us a story called ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens.

 

Wow, what a week!!

This week has been fun filled and action packed!  We have worked really hard to produce an amazing class assembly and we did not disappoint (even if we do blow our own trumpet 😁).  We have completed lots of great work, investigating who entered our classroom on Monday night.  We’ve even tried our hand at division and are confident that division is the same as sharing an amount. On Wednesday volunteers from the local church came and performed for us in assembly, we enjoy joining in with the story.
