March Madness

27/03/2020

Hello Maple Class, 

I would firstly like to say thank you to everyone who was in school on what what the last week of school. I hope that you are keeping busy and active during this period. It is a shame that we cannot be at school these next two weeks but that doesn't have to stop us doing activities that will help our learning. Although many of you do have a variety of books at home, I would like to encourage you to read the books allocated on 'Bug Club'. Almost all the class have been on TimesTables Rockstars which is positive to see.

In the coming week if you are stuck for ideas, I would reccomend looking at a recipe for something to cook. It would be beneficial to look at the features of a set of instructions and then to follow them, If it is required you will need to use your existing knowledge of scales/measures and fractions to work out what quantites are needed. This will help with your English and your Maths, as well as being a fun indoor activity you can do. 

If you have finished your home learning packs, please could you let the school know and we will do our best to provide some more resources for you so that you can continue to learn at home. 

Thank you,

This week we have continued building on our knowledge of Ancient Egypt and begun writing a recount of an explorer in ancient Egypt. The idea being that we will write a newspaper report next week. In Maths we have been working on word problems and missing number problems surrounding addition and subtraction. Thank you to all the children who dressed up for world book day and bought in their favourite books. 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Mr Holmes and Mrs Curtis

Ancient Egypt

Welcome back after a lovely half term. We have begun this week looking at ancient Egypt and all aspects of their life. Next week we will continue developing our knowledge of addition and subtraction. Congratulations to those who attended cross country trials from Maple and to those who were succesful. I look forward to training with pupils over the next few weeks during a lunchtime. 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Mr Holmes and Mrs Curtis

In The Desert

Lovely to see the majority of the parents this week at parents evening. Just a small post about the past 2 weeks where we have looked at poetry and been lucky enough to have a poet come in and speak with the children.

Today as a class we came up with:

On our trip in the desert with our school,

Palm trees and cactus grow really tall,

Exploring the land,

Digging in the sand,

We found ancient pyramids,

We’ll tell you what we did,

 

We wacked our teacher on the head,

He fell over but wasn’t dead,

We ripped out his guts,

Threw them on the bus,

 

We tore the ribs until they cracked,

We celebrated and clapped,

We chopped out the heart,  

It squirted out like a jam tart,

 

We clawed out the liver,

We launched into the river,

 We yanked out the eyes,

Then stirred it into pies,

 

We hacked out the brain,

Then kicked around like a game,

We wrapped our teacher in tissue,

We didn’t have an issue.

 

Now we’re on our way home,

Our teachers all bandaged up left alone,

Now were back at home,

With our souvenir bones.

 

 

 

Have a nice break and we look forward to seeing you after half term to learn about the Egyptians.

Measure

This week we have started some poetry in literacy and the following is what some of the class have come up with today:

Whenever everything goes dark,
Whenever the twinkling stars come out,
All night long the fierce dogs bark,
The destructive wolves come and shout,
Late in the night when the moon shines bright, 
Why does he not get an awful fright? 

In maths we have been estimating and measuring different lengths and weight of objects. Although our estimates of the weight of a water bottle varied at the start from 1g to 1000kg we were able to make suitable estimations. Homework this week is to write a poem around the theme 'states of matter, to link with our science. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Mr Holmes and Mrs Curtis

What We Have Been Learning About!

 

The past two weeks have been great, 

We have learned what goes on a healthy plate, 

We have studied the Romans, 

and learned what it is to be humans. 

 

We have learned that bones keep you strong, 

If you don't believe us you are wrong, 

We have counted up to subtract, 

We have also learned to count back, 

 

In English we have been brushing up on our poetry, 

As well as learning that not all past tense verbs end in ed, 

Meanwhiile in PE we are learning how to move safely, 

Because Mr Holmes says that in the classroom we are too noisy, 

 

We've learned lots of French words for food,

However Mr Holmes can't pronounce them any good, 

in the coming weeks we want to show,

Just how much we can grow, 

 

Mr Holmes.
