IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS: St Columb Major ACE Academy are being inspected by Ofsted today - Tuesday 15th January.

Week ending 09.11.18

Well done to Kieron and Rowan for their DOJO certificates. 
 
This week we have been writing instructions for how to safe using sparklers and whilst attending a fireworks display. We have been using imperative verbs to be bossy which some have found easier than others! We've also included time connectives for example first, next, then, after that and Jet Setters and Ready to Rock have also been using conjunctions like because and so.  Eg: First put on your gloves because it is cold outside. 
 
In maths we have been looking at our timetables and the different ways we can show how to times a number. We have doing our basic multiplication eg: 7 x 5 = 35 and made equal groups so 7 lots of 5, we've also done repeated addition so 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 35 and then we have been drawing arrays. 
 
In history we have been learning more about the GFOL and we've been impressing Miss Small  with our knowledge when she's been back with us the next morning. Ask what we remember!
 
In science we have been walking around the school grounds looking at different types of materials. We've found lots of different materials and many examples of each.
In music we have been listening to a GFOL podcast and learning a song to go with it.
During our ICT we have started computer art making pointillism GFOL pictures which means the picture is made up of lots of dots like our TV and tablets are made up with thousands of pixels!
 
On Friday we had a rock workshop which was amazing! We learnt a basic drum beat and notes whilst singing We Will Rock You! 
 
 
Next week is Children in Need day on Friday so it is non-uniform day / wear spots for a £1 donation. Also after school there will be a showing of The Greatest Showman in the hall,  you will have had a letter home today about it.
 
It is Anti-bullying week next week so we will be doing work on how we should be treating each other, showing respect and supporting one another. On Thursday please wear odd socks to celebrate the fact that we are all different and unique!
