We have reached the halfway point of this term and the children have again been stars this week! We have had another fabulous week in Team Indigo and Team Royal.
Many thanks for the wonderful maths related clothes the children wore for Number Day this week. They all looked fabulous!
In maths this week, we have been finding half of a number. We started with the whole number (e.g. 10) and then split 10 objects in to 2 equal groups to find that half of 10 is 5. On Friday, we had a special maths lesson as it was Number Day. We read the story 1 is a snail and 10 is a crab. This is a story where you learn about how many legs different animals have. Some of the children did activities involving ordering and some children looked at ways they could make different numbers (e.g. to make 10 they could have used an insect which has 6 legs and a dog which has 4 legs). We had great fun on Number Day!
This week, we have been learning about the difference between fiction (story) books and non-fiction (fact) books. We have done some amazing writing this week about the different parts of a flower. We have also learned about the artist Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at his sunflower painting and then had a go at creating our own. They look fabulous!
Here is an exciting opportunity from Ramsgate Town Council to design a gate for the entrance to Harbour Street in Ramsgate with a prize for the winner of £250 and the chance to see their winning design professionally designed and to visit the factory in Wingham to see it being made. You can also visit the town council website at https://www.ramsgatetown.org/ for any updates on the competition.
Please send your design entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you cannot send by email, post to Rebekah Smith, Radford House, 18-21 Effingham St, Ramsgate, CT11 9AT.
Please include your name, age and parent’s/guardian’s contact details including home and email address, daytime phone/mobile number. Hard copies sent by mail will not be returned to the entrant and RTC cannot confirm receipt of entries.
A maximum of three entries per person will be accepted.
All designs will be judged equally so please make sure your name is on the rear of the design(s) if sent by post so that anonymity is maintained throughout the judging process. Good luck Chilton!
- A reminder that children need to come in wearing their PE kit on a Tuesday and a Friday.
- You should receive an invite for your Parent-Teacher Consultation by today. If you have not received this, please let us know ASAP. We know that some parents have requested phone calls already. If this is something you would prefer (rather than a Teams meeting), please let us know. Thank you!
