Leeds Museum Trip- 30th June 2017

Hawthorn Class Blog

Pirate authors!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This half term is over, and we can't believe how quickly it has gone! This week we have been authors of our own pirate stories, creating our own books. We even designed our own front covers! In maths we have been completing some tests, looking at what we have learned so far this year. The children approached these with such a positive attitude, well done!

The spellings for over the half term are:

dangerous

enormous

jealous

fabulous

nervous

ridiculous

famous

generous

Captain

honest

Most of our spellings this week have the suffix 'ous'. The final two are words we are trying hard to spell correctly.

The homework for the half term was sent home early this week due to a number of child absences and the fact we break up before Friday. Reading books were also changed in preparation for the week's holiday. For those children who were absent for the homework being given out... Literacy is to look at a newspaper at home over the holidays and make a list of all the features you can find e.g. photographs, headlines etc. If you would like to bring in the newspaper you have looked at after the half term, this is more than welcome, as long as the newspaper is of course appropriate for school. Maths homework is to practise your 2, 3 and 4 times tables and your 8 times tables if you are feeling like a challenge!

Thank you for all your support this half term. We are all looking forward to the next! Happy holidays everyone!

Is it Christmas already??

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week has been a confusing week in Hawthorn class as we have spent a couple of session designing Christmas cards! Feeling festive nice and early this year!

In literacy we have been adapting the story of Kassim and the greedy pirate's treasure, changing the characters and making the story our own. We will be completing our stories on Monday. In maths we have been working hard on column subtraction. It was really difficult at first to remember not to add the numbers! We have just moved on to looking at what to do when we have to exchange numbers in the columns and will be working on this next week.

The spellings this week are:

impossible

polite

impolite

patient

impatient

perfect

imperfect

whether

weather

island

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend, I hear the sun is going to make an appearance and pretend its summers again!

Happy practising! Enjoy the weekend!

Greedy pirates!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

Week 4 already?!

This week we have read a new story called 'Kassim and the greedy pirate's treasure'. We have really enjoyed learning actions for the story (ask your children to show you them!). We have done lots of drama based on the story, making some fantastic freeze frames showing our favourite parts of the story! In maths we have been practising using column addition to add together numbers in the tens and hundreds. We have really enjoyed using this method and are feeling very proud of ourselves for having a go!

This week's spellings are:

accident

believe

caught

describe

February

heart

learn

minute

quarter

sentence

Happy practising! A kind reminder that homework is due on a Wednesday so it can be marked ready for new homework to be put in books on a Friday. Have a lovely weekend everyone! Another warm one I hope!

Happy Hawthorns!

We have had a lovely week in Hawthorn class this week! We have had so many children moving up to gold- amazing!

We have been authors of our own pirate stories this week which were fantastic! We made storyboards and thought of lots of fantastic adjectives to describe our pirate characters and settings. We even designed our own treasure islands to base our stories on. Well done Hawthorns!

In maths we have been learning more about place value and have just started to focus on column addition, which we loved! We will be carrying on with this next week and I know already we are looking forward to this!

The spellings this week are:

invisible

dislike

disagree

disappear

dishonest

incorrect

incomplete

independent

island

treasure

Happy practising! Have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully the rain will dry up ready for some sunshine!
