Welcome to Term 3 in the Deer Class! This term, we shall be learning about Natural Disasters!

It has been lovely to see the children's enthusiasm for this topic during this week; the compassion they have shown for the victims of natural disasters has been heart-warming.

I cannot wait to continue our learning journey and work with the children to discover how these phenominal natural disasters occur...

Kodu rocks!

We have had such an exciting lesson this afternoon launching the start of our Kodu Programming topic!

In today’s lesson, we were code investigators! We were introduced to the program Kodu and were tasked with testing out some existing games in the Kodu Game lab! We then shared our learning with others to show what we had discovered about what Kodu can do and how it might work.

Miss Lineker was so impressed with our understanding of the code and symbols. The children weer so engaged with this that they all sighed when it was time to pack the laptops away! I cannot wait to see what games their creative minds program over the course of the term!


Fabulous Fractions in Maths

In today’s lesson, we investigated placing fractions on a number line. We worked on using our knowledge of equivalent fractions to help us with ordering.

We LOVED this lesson because our number line was on the table and this visual way of representing fractions enabeld us to make lots of progress over the course of the morning. Excellent discussions were had by all children as we justified where to place certain fractions and whether fractions were equivalent or not. We even went on to find the difference between fractions and represent this difference in multiple ways on the number line.


Here we are in action:

Travel Safety Day - learning to cross the road

As part of our whole-school curriculum day, the children learnt how to stay safe when crossing the road and when moving around our school grounds. We were lucky to be joined by our PCSOs who accompanied us through the village and reminded us about how to follow the Green Cross Code. Thank you to our PCSOs for giving up your valuable time to support the learning of the Deer Class.
