A slightly shorter half term has come to an end but we have certainly packed it full of learning!

This week in English the children writing their instructions for how to get Cinderella ready for the ball. All the children have made such good progress with their writing since the start of the year and they should be very proud of their work. 

In maths, we have continued learning about multiplication and division. We learnt how to share equally between 2 and 5 groups using practical resources before moving onto sharing by drawing groups and counters. 

In geography the children drew their own map of Yeadon using aerial photographs. 

This week we have had Miss Hodges teaching in our class. Miss Hodges is a student teacher who is in her final year of teacher training. Miss Hodges will continue to teach some lessons over the following weeks at school. 

Online Safety Day happened on Tuesday 6th February. Please take some time to talk to your children about online safety at home. Resources can be found here:

Enjoy the half term. Please remember Monday 19th February is a Training Day so I will see you again on Tuesday 20th February.

A busy week of learning has come to an end. 

In English, we have learnt what instructions are and the key features of a set of instructions. The children followed a set of instructions to make each their own friendship bracelet. Later in the week the children each ordered their own set of instructions about how to get Cinderella ready for the ball. 

Following on from learning to count in 2s, 5s and 10s last week, the children have learnt how to make arrays in maths and how to use arrays to solve repeated addition number sentences. 


In geography the children worked in groups to create a map of the school and even created their own map key!

Next week is Online Safety Week. We will be doing additional lessons about online safety next week but it would also be beneficial if you could discuss online safety with your child/children next week. Please use this link to find information about how to keep your child safe online:

Enjoy the weekend I will see you again on Monday for the final week of the half term!

A very quiet week in Pear Tree Class has come to an end. 

In maths we have learnt how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children did really well with spotting patterns in the final digits of numbers to work out whether they would say a given number when counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s. 

In English we have focused on sentence level writing by writing captions to match pictures from Cinderella. On Wednesday all the children completed their writing independently and showed massive progress from where they started at the beginning of the year. 

In DT we continued learning about mechanisms and moving pictures. Each child made their own lever to make a scene from Jack and the Beanstalk move. 

In geography we continued learning about our local area by discussing the physical and human features of Yeadon. 

Have a lovely weekend and hope that everyone affected has recovered from chicken pox!
