4.2.2019: This week in Storytelling we are learning the story of 'The Magic Porridge Pot.' The children have been hot seating different characters and talking about the plot of the story as part of the immersion week.
29.1.2019: In maths the Woodpecker class have been learning to multiply by making groups, and using these to help us to form arrays with our jottings. We know that there are lots of different words that mean 'multiply' so we wrote these onto our maths learning wall.
There are lots of different arrays around us, can you spot any at home?
23.1.2019: This week the Woodpecker class have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man in Storytelling. We looked at the different characters, the setting, the moral of the story and thought about ways to adapt it to make our own. We even got the chance to make real gingerbread men!
14.1.2019: In maths this week we have been learning to share objects into halves and quarters. We drew a pizza and split it in half, then shared out the peperoni (equally) to find the answer. Take a look at our sharing...
