The final week of the term in Highmoor was a short one but we managed to fit lots in! We revisited telling the time in Numeracy. We began with some mental maths work where we had to quickly find pairs of numbers that have a total of 60.
We had the numbers 1 – 12 positioned around the classroom like a clock and used our arms as the minute and hour hands to show the time to the hour and half past the hour.
From here, we began setting the time on mini analogue clocks. We recapped telling the time quarter past and quarter to the hour. Some of us moved on to reading the time to the nearest 5 minutes and 1 minute. We also looked at how these times are written in words and displayed on a digital clock.
Year 4s had the tricky job of telling the time on 12 hour and 24 hour clocks.
We spent some time this week designing and making Easter cards as gifts to take home. First, we designed how we wanted our cards to look.
Next, we set about making them in stages. We had to use templates to cut out two egg shapes from card. One had to be cut in half so we used our recently acquired measuring skills to measure the length of the egg in cm and mm. We then halved this number to find the middle.
After decorating each half of the egg, we decorated flowers and a border. We created a chick to sit inside and assembled the card using a split pin. We finished them off with a message on the back.
On Wednesday, we attended church for our Easter Service. We read the story of The Last Super. We all read very clearly and on cue. Miss Tillotson was very proud!
On Wednesday afternoon, we split into our house teams to decorate hard boiled eggs ready for The Annual Peppard Egg Rolling Competition!
We walked down to the big hill and competed in year groups to see who could roll their egg the furthest!
We have had an action packed term and are all ready for a relaxing break! Next term, PE will be on Monday and Thursday where we will be playing Cricket and Rounders and doing Athletics.
