Last week we had fun working in groups to create weird and wacky fruit salad recipes! Our target was to use fraction instructions that would be a challange for another group to follow whilst also making sure all of our group’s chosen fruit was used! We all succeeded in following and writing instructions for making our fruit salad inventions, and of course eating them! Great collaborative learning P2/3!!!

P2/3 have been learning about what fractions are, why we need to know about them and how we use them. So far we have found simple fractions of shapes (such as halves and quarters) by folding and cutting, ordered simple fractions on number lines and learnt about equivalent fractions by building fraction walls and playing matching fraction games.
Last week P3s found fractions of amounts by applying their knowledge of division. We will be continuing with fraction of an amount this week. We will be assessing each other through discussing the fraction of different types of beads used in our bracelet and necklace designs.
As part of our enterprise project we will running an art sale to sell our creative inventions, most of which are made from recycled materials! It will be held on Friday 31st May, from 11am-12, in the school hall. Some of our fantastic work is on display in the school foyer. Come and have a look!
Next week some of P3 will be continuing with equivalent fractions and adding simple fractions together. Other P3s will be linking their fraction knowledge to decimals and percentages. Continue to reinforce learning at home by playing the fraction games listed in homework diaries : )

Ryan – I enjoy helping to make them confident in getting to know us.
Lucy – Its fun having a little buddy watering the trees with me.
Poppy – I like getting to know and spend time with the nursery children.

Over the last couple of months the afterschool gardening club has been busy developing our vegetable patch. What started off as an unattractive ivy-covered area is now a thriving vegetable patch where we are growing potatoes, onions, peas. Next week we will be planting courgette plants and runner beans to grow up the large tripod structure. Mrs Hay’s father-in-law has made a sign for our patch too! We think you will agree that this has been quite a transformation and we are looking forward to cooking up our produce soon – suggestions welcome! Thanks again to everyone who has been involved in this project including all the parents who have worked with the gardening club and other pupils during golden time.

This week P6/7 have been learning about different parts of a circle and how to draw circles using different techniques. In class we have been measuring the radius and diameter of a circle and have used a compass to draw circles of different sizes. We have also been talking about the artist Kandinsky and how he used circles in his art work. We took our learning outside and drew circles using only string and chalk to create our own picture and then used paint to bring our art work to life!
