Famous Person Day 23.4.21


We came to school dressed as a famous/significant person. We started off the day practising our passing and dribbling skills in football. We then had the opportunity to present and discuss our chosen famous person. In the afternoon, we found out lots of information on the artist Frida Kahlo. We then created our own Frida Kahlo inspired painting. It was a great day!

Useful methods we will be working on this year: 

Addition  E.g 23+22=45






Partitioned columnar method:








Subtraction  E.g.  46-13=33











Using arrays:

E.g. 4 x 5=20
x x x x x
x x x x x
x x x x x
x x x x x







Making amounts using different coins- 20p= 10p+10p   20p=5p+5p+5p+5p.

Remember to practise your number bonds at home! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Can you beat Ms Kyprianou’s score of 21? Good luck!

Times table Rockstars:

Carry on practising your times table rock stars and try to beat your scores!

How many coins can you collect?

Can you beat your record?



Good Luck Rock Stars!



Autumn 2:


We devoted an entire day to Art this week. We created our own patterns through use of print based on our cultural backgrounds. This was inspired by our research into the work of Delita Martin.

We made cute little reindeers for our Christmas hoops. Have a look 🙂

The process:

Victorian Day 20.11.20

We dressed up for Victorian day. We experienced a typical day in a Victorian school with the 3 R’s: reading, writing and arithmetic. We then explored different Victorian toys and games and read through some fun non-fiction books on the strict Victorians.


We looked at examples of different Victorian toys. We then made our own Jack-in the box to play with.




Autumn 1:

The children have made funky bookmarks. Have a look at their amazing work!
