Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about forces and have carried out a range of experiments to explore these. The learners made predictions in which they then reflected upon after carrying out the experiments. There was some great thinking going on. Bendigedig Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne!

Outdoor Math

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been working hard in their Mathematics and Numeracy lessons. Some of us have been exploring number bonds to 10 using natural materials and the part-part whole model. Others have been learning to subtract 10 from numbers they have found on their number hunt, using a 100 square to help.

Tom Moorhouse

Dosbarth Miss Powell had a brilliant morning yesterday. As our class text, we are reading ”The River Singers” by Tom Moorhouse. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to ask the author questions that we had.

He left us with some great advice for our future careers,

”Do what you love!”.

Banking Process

Over the last week we have been looking at making profit and then the banking process after. The learners in Dosbarth Mrs Smith worked out the profit from each bottle of apple juice and then used their multiplication skills to work out the total profit. We then counted the money we raised on all the stalls last Friday and looked at how we would bank this money. To deepen our understanding Mrs Dinsdale talked us through this process.

Big Count Up

Dosbarth Miss Powell were thrilled to count and calculate the profit that we made on our stall at the Christmas Fate! Some excellent discussions were had to consider our profit.

How much should we have been paid for our time?!

The River

Dosbarth Miss Powell have worked so hard to produce brilliant river themed poems based on ‘The River’ by Valerie Bloom. A superb use of metaphors, alliteration and rhyme! We then applied our watercolour techniques and created a river scene. Gwaith anhygoel pawb
