On Tuesday 13th March Owls Class spent their Maths lesson learning about fractions. We know that fractions are parts of a whole and that they MUST be equal (or it wouldn't be fair!). We know that two quarters are the same as one half and we also know how to write fractions. Mrs. Sage introduced Norris Numerator and Doris Denominator - they help us to remember what the numbers on the top and the bottom of the fraction mean.
The children cut out their own shapes and carefully folded them into fractions.
On Wednesday 10th January we went on a bug hunt! Our aim was to find things that were either living, dead or had never been alive. The children know what special features living things must have. They know that living things must be able to breathe, grow, reproduce and respond to their environment. There is one final criteria that living things must do! I wonder if your child can tell you?
We collected specimens very carefully using paintbrushes and pots but some of our bugs were quite lively and keen to escape!
Lights, Camel, Action! The Key Stage One nativity play.
This year’s play was a huge success with lots of laughs and some super singing by the whole of Key Stage One. Owls class were especially fantastic – learning lots of lines and acting their little hearts out! Some of the children were really quite nervous about standing up in front of a live audience but every single one of them performed, and behaved, brilliantly. A photographer from the Blackmore Vale visited to catch some photos which will, hopefully, be in this week’s magazine.
