This week we have been learning all about fractions.

We have had lots of new vocabulary to learn: whole, half, quarters and fractions.

We have worked very practically this week to try support this new topic and learn how we can share objects, and numbers in to groups and share.

As part of our topic we folded shapes, made sandwiches, shared pizza’s and shared sandwiches. We had lots of fun working practically and can now find ½.

Celebration card shop

Today we finished our money week by opening a celebration card shop. Our parents were happy to get out of the rain and we were happy to help them spend their money. We really enjoyed selling our cards and handling money. We were very good shop keepers, making sure people paid for their items and handing back their change.

Mrs Jones has counted the money after school and the shop raised £29 profit. The children have been discussing how we could spend the money this afternoon, sharing some very good ideas.

All about the money!


At the start of the week we thought about what we knew about money before we started the topic. We had lots of ideas about how we used money and where money came from, however we were unsure of what money looked like and the different coins.


Today we had another think about money, collecting the ideas about what we now know. We know lots of information about the different coins and also how and where we use money.

Music with different sounds


We had our first Music lesson with Miss Bowkett this morning.

First of all we thought about all the different sounds we can make using just our hands. We made loud and quiet sounds and practised how to change them.

Can you make your hands make these sounds?

Then we used lots of different musical instruments and followed Miss Bowkett’s signals to increase and decrease the volume. We were very good at this and are looking forward to using the instruments again next week!

Working to a budget


In Maths today we were given a budget to make a celebration card. We were given a budget of 15p and 20p to make celebration cards for any celebration we wanted. Mrs Jones opened up a shop and gave us a price list. We had to think carefully about what we wanted on our cards as we didn’t want to waste our money.

We spent our money well and no-one asked for extra money. We are very proud of our cards and sticking to budget.
