Key skills – Maths

This week we have been visualising numbers. We have been looking at how we could split a Wonka bar. We knew how many pieces were in a whole bar, which was shown at the top of the diagram. The bottom bar showed how it was then split. We needed to work out how the bar was split by looking at the size of the pieces in relation to the whole bar.

This is an example of Singapore bars. You could ‘bing’ this if you need extra guidance on the task or why not leave a reply on the blog.

Reflecting on our learning about India

Year 4 have been having lots of fun learning all about India. As part of their work in class this week, they will each be sharing what they have most enjoyed learning about and doing during the last term. Keep checking the blog throughout the week to read all about what Mozart children have been up to. If you would like to ask them any questions to further their learning, or to find out more about what they have shared, please respond to their blog posts and they will enjoy getting back to you.

Henna

It was great to see the children’s Mendhi designs being transformed by Mrs Butt today as she talked us through the skills of using Henna. Jacob and Zach had a go and realised it is definitely a skill and talent that needs lots of practise to perfect. Thank you to Mrs Butt for all her help today.

We look forward to some Indian cookery sessions with Mrs Butt next week. Watch this space…

Happy Diwali

Year 4 did a fantastic job of sharing their expertise about Diwali with Reception today. All the work we have been doing on instruction writing really paid off as the children guided Reception to create their own clay pots. They also helped them to create some Mendhi designs and symmetrical Rangoli patterns. Well done Year 4.
