Week 9 of samba drums for swallow’s class. Great fun and lots of noise.
The children in Swallows have been tackling some tricky maths work this week as they learn how to find fractions of amounts. Both the Year 3s and the children in Year 4 have been learning to divide by the denominator and multiply by the numerator.
It has been lovely to see all of the children use their times tables skills (thank you to parents for helping support this at home!) and apply them to find fractions. (You can find out more about our times tables award on the school website: http://www.westoncofe.derbyshire.sch.uk/times-tables/)
I have also been pleased to see the children use the different resources in the room to help them with their tricky maths.
Well done Swallows!
Swallow’s have made lots of noise and had fun this week performing poems in small groups and as a whole class. The dinosaur rap was especially popular.
Swallows enjoyed dressing up on Monday. We learned about different aspects of Viking life, including crime and punishment. We also made brooches and shields. Thanks to Tracey for all her help with our creations.
Swallows have been creating dragons for our dragon zoo. We will be writing information texts about our dragons so that visitors to our zoo will know about our dragon’s features and habitats.
