Nativity volunteer costume makers and baseball caps needed

Cockerel Owl caps

 

Do you have old baseball caps at home? We could convert these into cockerel or owl heads. For our 2 owls – white and brown would be ideal, but other colours are possible. For the cockerel – white or green or brown would be great.

The costumes are simple. We are mainly asking the children to provide a t-shirt and trousers and we supply the rest. We already have several fantastic sheep, donkey and mice masks.

It would be a great help to us if a group of parents could come in next week to make 2 camel masks  and a cow mask (Mrs. Ryalls will have made one of each for you to copy) and to cover the baseball caps as owl eyes and a cockerel head.

Does anyone have

a onesie that would look like a dog?

onesies for our 2 cows?

black leotards for our 2 cats or cat costumes from Halloween?

a white judo suit for our snowy owl?

a grey tracksuit for our donkey?

Most of the children have animal roles so we shall require quite a few black or brown t-shirts.

PLEASE NAME ANY CLOTHING SENT IN.

Thanks =)

Multiplication arrays

Arrays are a great way of learning about multiplication. What do these arrays show? Which one has a good mistake to learn from?

Look for the rows and the columns.

What have you learned from making arrays?

We have also made up our own word problems using multiplication. Watch this space for those to be added.

Writing character descriptions

Good mistake; let’s learn from it – nearly all pupils had described the setting of their story with interesting adjectives but had forgotten to describe their characters. We proved this by asking a friend to draw our character but they couldn’t! We re-drafted part of our story and our friends were able to draw our characters from our character descriptions. Great!

Properties of 3D shapes

P4 have had fun making 3D shapes using polydrons. Which 3D shapes have they made? Can they make the new shape they are learning about, called a hemisphere, using polydrons? Why?
