Welcome to Peridot Class Page


In Peridot Class we are enthusiastic to learn and have fun and Mr Lynn, Mrs Hoad and all the children have loved being back in class this week.

In Maths, we have focused our learning on number, place value, multiplication and fractions We remembered lots about our multiplication and could recall many times table facts. We applied our skills to be able to add fractions with the same denominator and then simplified them if that was possible. You can see below how we added and subtracted fractions.

In English, we have started to study ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl. We have been looking at the language and vocabulary used by Roald Dahl in his writing and we used our reading skills to identify useful words and phrases and used summarising skills to make notes from the text. We used extracts from the book to make notes about the children that went missing. You can see below an example of our note taking.

Science has been really interesting for us. We have been ‘Classifying Critters’ and we collected many creatures from outside (e.g. worms, ants, spiders etc.) and used scientific classification diagrams to help us tell the difference between the creatures we had found. We then created a flow chart to help us identify different creatures. Can you use the flow chart below to identify the animals?

In Computing we are learning about blogs. We have planned our blogs using a spider gram. We will use these to write our blogs next week. The blog you see below will be interesting we think.
