Dressing up, Sewing and Times Tables!
Children and teachers in Oakfield had lots of fun on World Book Day a few weeks ago. We all dressed up as our favourite book character and went to the local library to have a talk from the amazing author and illustrator Nick Sharratt. The children had a lot of fun at the library and were taught how to draw characters from Nick Sharratt’s books too! Amabel in our class won a prize for having the best costume as she was the lion and a cereal box from the book ‘There’s a Lion in my Cornflakes!’.
In English the children have started to learn a new model text called ‘The Rainbow Giant’ which they have been very much enjoying. It is a non-chronological text type and the children nearly know it all off by heart. We will then move onto writing about a class character in the same style and then the children will think of their own character to describe in the style of ‘The Rainbow Giant’ text.
In Maths Beech Class have been working extremely hard to learn their times tables and understand what the ‘x’ sign actually means! We have been looking at lots of different methods/strategies including grouping, clever counting and stem sentences. We are now using our times tables to help us learn how to divide numbers and have been looking at inverse operations; again, the children have learnt a lot of different methods and strategies to see which one they like best.
In Design Technology Beech Class have started designing and sewing parts of their puppets together. They have all now sewn the button eyes on their felt puppet shape templates and are very excited to complete them.
