Bubble H - Calculating Fractions, Decimals & Percentages with Love Hearts!

posted 26 Jun 2020, 06:25 by Website Admin

Bubble H have been extremely busy revisiting our learning on fractions.  Our favourite lesson this week was calculating the fraction, decimal and percentage colour distribution of Love Hearts.  We each had our own packet and we had to work out the fraction, decimal and percentage equivalents of each colour.   We also produced a bar graph to show our results.  We found that Violet was the most popular colour out of 13 packets...  81/325! 

Bubble E Creating William Morris Wallpaper

posted 26 Jun 2020, 06:20 by Website Admin

This week Bubble E have been learning to tell the time using o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We then went outside and worked as teams to tell the time in 5 minute intervals using chalk to draw the clock and sticks for the hour and minute hands. We have also been finding out about the artist William Morris and have written a biography detailing his life. In art we looked at some of his most famous pieces and created our own wallpaper using elements of his designs in our own work.

Learning Outside the Classroom with Bubble G

What an amazing week we have had in Bubble G, where we have been lucky enough with the weather and our amazing woodland, we have spent more time outside than in.  We have been planning and editing our stories based upon Humpty Dumpty and we are just about ready to construct our own picture books based on a fear our character overcomes.  We have been problem solving using treasure hunts for addition and subtraction including exchanging which has really helped us to remember how to tackle those trickier mathematical problems.  When we were working on our problems, we found a freshly hatched egg that Matthew Magpie identified as a pigeon egg!   We also worked on our virtual sports day on the Rec and enjoyed competing in teams to try to beat our best times. Long may this wonderful weather continue to support our love of LOTC at Kendall!

Welcome Back Bubbles C & D!

Bubbles C and D were thrilled to welcome 20 Children back into Year One on Monday. This week they have read and learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Both bubbles acted out the story in small groups and there were some brilliant performances! They then planned and re-wrote the story using sentence starters. In maths we have been measuring items, we started by estimating then using cubes and 100 bead strings and then moved onto measuring in centimetres and meters using rulers. They have looked at Van Gogh sunflowers and made clay sunflowers and in ICT they have started programming with bluebots.

Last week Bubble E investigated direction and position in maths. They marked out clock faces on the floor to help describe anti-clockwise and clockwise turns. They also had to say if it was a quarter, half, three quarter or full turn.

Last week Bubble C’s learning was centered on The Bad Tempered Ladybird.  They acted out the story with some fantastic voices and actions.  They have learnt lots of facts about ladybirds and insects and we went on a mini-beast hunt in the woodland.  They have labelled the parts of an insect and wrote a ladybird fact file.
