Come and meet Pearl class’ latest Mathematician of the Week…
This superstar has really been impressing everyone with her super column method in addition both with and without Dienes. You even ask for extra in your independent learning time! Fantastic! 🙂
Just take a look at our fabulous Superstar Writer of the Week.
This young lady has wowed the adults in Pearl class this week. We have been writing super sentences to match images from the silent film ‘Baboon on the Moon’ and you were able to check each sentence for capital letters, full stops, conjunctions and adjectives.
A true superstar!
Congratulations to our second Mathematician of the Week.
You have been answering lots of questions on the carpet, explaining how to know and answer to an adult and have been trying your best all week! Keep it up!
What a fantastic start to the year for our very first Mathematician of the Week in Pearl class.
You have impressed the adults this week with your super quick recall of counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10 and then steps of 3 and 4. Keep up the hard work!
This award is truly deserving this week. This little superstar has the most fantastic cursive handwriting and uses it in all of her books.
We can’t wait to see your learning continue over the year! Well done!
Miss Varley was very excited to recieve a very special parcel today. It was our superhero adventure stories that have been published by Young Writers.
We needed to make sure that we thought of a new superhero character that had a massive dilemma. We remembered to make sure our stories had a beginning, middle and end. We tried to use expanded noun phrases and lots of different punctuation in our stories too!
Anyone who has ordered a copy can collect their book from Miss Varley. If not, you can look at the class copy in the book corner.
Miss Varley is very proud as so many stories have been published. Well done Pearl class!
We are so excited to be learning about Florence Nightingale that Miss Varley has created Scutari hospital for us to recreate what it must have been like during the Crimean War.
We have learnt that Scutari is in a place called Turkey so we have the Turkish flag up.
We have learnt that Florence was having to look after soldiers in disgusting conditions.
- Soldiers were having to sleep on the floor.
- There was no clean water to drink or bathe in.
- Food was often mouldy or stale.
- There were lots of rats and they were covered in disease and ran around the hospital, passing their bacteria and disease around.
- Many soldiers died from infection rather than their actual wounds.
We have also looked at a timeline of Florence Nightingale’s life to learn facts like when she was born, how old she was when she died.
We love dressing up and using our imagination to try and imagine what it must of been like for Florence, her nurses and the soldiers.
What you could do at home:
- Find out who Florence Nightingale is.
- Find out why is she important to nursing.
- Visit the library to find books about Florence.
- Use the internet to research more about the life of Florence Nightingale.
