In year 1 we have been reading Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere. The monster payed a visit to year one and left his footprints in the corridor. We wrote some questions for him in case he ever visits us again. In numeracy we have been learning about the days of the week and months of the year. We made a birthday chart to show when our birthdays are. In RE we learnt about why Christmas is celebrated. The children listened to a nativity story and drew a picture of their favourite part of the story.
In year 2 this week, we created a non-fiction class book about nocturnal animals in Literacy and made our own glow jars to see in the dark. In maths we re-capped adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, cementing the methods we have already learnt this year. As part of our ‘All around the world topic’, the children wrote a postcard back home pretending they were in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
In year 3 this week, we have been describing settings for our book Stone Age Boy. In Maths we have been continuing to learn about division. We have also been using repeated addition and repeated subtraction to divide using a number line and using arrays to solve division number problems. In Art we have been designing Christmas cards and decorating our classroom for Christmas.
This week the children in year4 have written alternative endings for Krindlekrax ready to publish next week. In maths the children have been looking at fractions, finding fractions of shapes and equivalent fractions . In R.E. they have continued their topic on Hinduism, looking at Hindu gods and Hindu worship.
In literacy Year 5 have been drawing and annotating the ghosts that we meet in A Christmas Carol, they have also written a story board to describe one of the staves involving the ghosts. The children have also been publishing the amazing work they produced for our unit on The Fir Tree. In numeracy we have been multiplying numbers by 10,100 and 1000. We have been practicing our handwriting by copying a poem and we have been focusing on the spellings of some ’challenging words’.
Year 6 have had a busy week! We studied coordinates and translation in Numeracy and continued learning about Anne Frank in our Literacy lessons. We looked at Charles Darwin’s finches in Guided Reading and learnt all about adaptation and variation in Science. Well done to all the year 6s who completed their Bikeability training- they can now circumnavigate the roads of Camberwell confidently!
