Mrs Simon came to visit us today to talk about people who are deaf or deaf blind As she works for JDA. The children have been learning about Diversity Awareness Month and how everyone is different. They learnt how to sign their names using finger spelling and were taught some simple greetings. It was a very interesting and informative talk which the children greatly benefitted from.
We have been learning some techniques which will help us to solve tricky questions in Maths. We have looked at doubling and halving to help solve tricky multiplication questions and learning the rules of divisibility so that we can quickly identify which numbers can be divided.
In English this week, we have been learning about recount writing. We have given the children wide experiences of different recounts to familiarise themselves with what is expected when they write their own next week.
During computing, we have been developing our spread sheet skills using the 'how many' tool to calculate the number of vowels in words.
Reminder: please can you ensure all the girls have socks in their PE bags.
Spellings this week have been copied out in to their diaries so that children can continue to revise once homework books have been handed in.
Today we used manipulatives in maths to help us solve problems involving negative numbers.
We had a very interesting discussion around rights and responsibilities during PSHE and whether or not everyone should have equal rights. What would it be like if we did not have any rules?
