Staverton C.E. Primary School
School Lane, Staverton, Trowbridge, Wiltshire,
We have had another busy few weeks in Otters' Class. In Literacy we have looked at myths and story writing, and we even acted out the stories to help us sequence them for our plays. We produced some brilliant writing! We also wrote instructions on how to make a stain glass window and had to follow our partners' instructions. We created some beautiful windows and followed the instructions well. In Maths we have been working hard on our times tables, as well as practising column addition and subtraction. We looked at fractions and found equivalent fractions and practised weighing to the nearest 100 grams. We have all worked extrememly hard and are proud of what we have achieved.
We looked at fractions and folded strips of paper into different fractions to create a fraction wall. We used our fraction walls to help us to spot equivalent fractions!
We practiced reading scales to the nearest hundred grams when Miss Lowe worked with us in groups!
Weighing to the nearest 100g
We worked in groups to weigh objects around the classroom to the nearest 100g. We tried to convert the weights between kilograms and grams.
We acted out 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' to help us to re-write it as a play. It was very tricky include stage directions!
During the last week of term we had our Christmas Party. We played lots of games and had a dancing competition. Don't we look like we all had a great time!
