This week we have been learning about Thanksgiving. We have written excellent reports and created posters to display our learning. Look out for pictures of our completed posters next week.

We created paper turkeys and thought about the things we are thankful for in our own lives.

Thanksgiving Turkeys

This week we have been learning about the celebration of Thanksgiving. We collected lots of information on the celebration and created information reports based on this.

In Health and Wellbeing we have been talking about kindness and this week we focussed on what we are grateful for. We made turkeys and used the feathers to say who we are thankful for.


Movie Afternoon

One of our activities in the last week of term will be a movie afternoon as a way of saying thank-you to you all for your hard work.

The film has to be rated U and available on DVD to play on the smartboard.

Can you recommend a good film for the class to watch. Please justify your choice.

Amazing Angles

This week we have been revising the names of different angles, identifying these and learning how to use a protractor to measure these.

We used art in the style of cubism to find angles and name them. It helped us to learn all the different names and to identify what the angles look like.

We also worked at our tables to draw and estimate angles. We then took it in turn to measure these accurately using a protractor.

Can you find any other cubist paintings to use that show the different angles?




Who am I?

This week in Let’s Think Science we had to work in our groups to figure out what animals we could see based on their skeletons.

Some were trickier than others and we had lots of good discussions as well as explanations as to why we thought what we did.

Here are 3 more skeletons. Can you guess what they are and explain your thinking behind your answer.

If you can find any of your own photos to  test the class next week, add the photos to your iPad.

Funny Bones

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about our skeletons. We have been learning what some of the main bones are called and Mrs Smith has been testing us on our knowledge by playing a game of ‘Simon Says’ and getting us to point to the different parts of our body.

Can you label the skeleton above?

Teach the names of the bones to people in your house and then have a go at playing ‘Simon Says’.

Multiplying by 10/100/1000



This week we used the screen recording feature on our iPads to demonstrate to Mrs Smith how to multiplying numbers by different 10s numbers. We must remember to move the place values of the number before adding the 0’s. Watch the videos  above to see what happens.

We also loved listening to a song which also helped us to learn about the multiplication process. Take a listen below.
