Maths, Gardening and Disco

Week 4 of term 5 has been very busy in Sycamore Class, as we have been keeping as quiet as possible in the mornings for the Year 6 SATS week.

The week started with more multiplication and division. This week we have been making groups of 2, 5 and 10 and then sharing equally between.

In the afternoons we have been outside doing PE, looking at trees and the raised beds.

Our seedlings will be ready to go out next week and we all went out to have a look in the other beds.

We then looked closely at a flowering plant and then some of us made our own whilst others helped make a large flower for our display. We will finish these next week.

On Friday it was our healthy snack break and I have to say a massive big Thank You! Because we had loads of loads of fantastic snacks to sell….well done everyone 👍👏😀

It was also disco time after school Friday and I think everyone had a fantastic time…

Sycamore class definitely won the most prizes and your dancing and singing skills were brilliant 🕺🏻💃🎸

Beans and Our Class Workshop

We were very surprised by the growth of all our seedlings over the Bank holiday… in fact our sunflowers had got way too tall and spindly  to survive a journey home to be replanted. We have decided to try again with new sunflowers, borlotti and runner beans and courgettes to put in our raised bed. We have made our final entries into our individual bean diaries and have taken these home to see if the are strong enough to grow at home.

It was wonderful to see so many mummies and daddies today at our Class Workshop. Thank you all for coming, we hope you enjoyed yourselves.

We all had a great time and really loved sharing our work with you.

If you would like a copy of the slide show it is a Power Point and is too big to email but I can put it on a memory stick for you. Please pop a stick in a named envelope and I will make sure you get a copy.

Many thanks

Mrs C

Finally  please remember it is our turn to bring in healthy snacks for our Healthy Snack Break next Friday- 17th May.

Amazing Arrays and Brilliant Beans!

This week we have been making arrays to help us with repeated addition and multiplication.

We have also been totally wowed by our brilliant beans and other seedlings…. We can’t believe how quickly they are growing.

You can see how much Esme’s beans has grown in 24 hours from the first photo to to the last photo.

We have also enjoyed reading all the books we have in class to tell us about plants and how they grow…

Next week is our Class Workshop and we would love to see you all to share some of our learning with you.
