This week saw 5HJ take part in the TTRS battle England Rocks in aid of maths week. After 3 days of hard work, we were delighted to discover that 5HJ placed 192nd out of over 30,034 classes across the country. What an achievement! 🏆
This week, 5HJ have begun to create our rainforest animal soft toys. We started by practicing a variety of different stitches and then used our paper templates to create the front. The focus and determination in learning a new still has been amazing! We are so excited to see the final outcomes.
Halloween crafts this week involved using hand prints to make a whole selection of ghosts, ghouls, pumpkins and devils.
Today, we spend or Flexible Friday crew session having Halloween fun. Check out our spooky mummies and awesome Jack O’Lanterns. After half term, Mr Carr will decide which Jack O’Lantern design is worthy of being carved on the gigantic pumpkin which was donated to school by a child in Y3!!
An important part of our learning for our current expedition is deforestation and the effects it has on wildlife as well as humans. This afternoon, 5HJ created mind maps thinking about the consequences of cutting down the trees in the Amazon rainforest. It was a thought provoking exercise for all.
It was certainly a hot one but Year 5 had a wonderful time visiting The Yorkshire Wildlife Park yesterday! The children took part in an endangered animals workshop learning how and why animals are becoming endangered and what we can do to help. Our highlights were definitely spending time with the wallabies and polar bears.
Sports day is coming ever closer so Yr 3 have been practising field events this week. Events include welly wanging, kneel throw, speed bounce and standing long jump.
What an absolutely beautiful few days we have had at school this week. Year 3 made the most of the sunshine by taking part in a maths and SPaG treasure hunt in the quad this morning in preparation for test week next week! 😀
After spending the past 5 weeks learning everything there is to know about fractions in maths, 3HJ are definitely experts, especially in adding and subtracting fractions. Children supported each other today in completing a treasure hunt with high levels of accuracy. Well done guys!
This week in our expedition lessons, year 3 have been looking at how earthquakes are formed, in particular tectonic plates. The children used a jigsaw of the world to identify the 7 major plates. Great jobs guys!
