Year 3 Spelling

Who am I?

Question: ‘You are a type of weather which falls from the sky. Your friend is what the queen does.’

Answer: rain and reign.

This was a snippet from conversations heard in Year 3 when we played Homophone Who Am I?. What a fun way to learn our spelling word meanings!

Year 5 Science – Speed Dating

Year 5 have been speed dating this week…speed dating each of the planets!

After five minutes of becoming an expert on their specialist planet, it was then a matter of speed to find out as much information about each of the other planets in a three minute date.

We think eight dates in an afternoon was really quite tiring, not to mention the fact we were also expected to make a fact file on everything we had found out – what a busy afternoon of science!

Year 4 Bloggers

The following blogs were written by Alice and Katie in Year 4…

23 February: Maths Equivalent

Today in Maths we learnt about equivalent fractions. This means two fractions can equal the same amount. For example: 1/2 is the same as 2/4 or 2/6 is the same as 4/12. We’ve also learnt to shade in a fraction to show a half.

28 February: Snow again

Snow again! What was the weather thinking? It must be out of its mind! It hasn’t snowed in Fordingbridge for four years – but this time FJS struck lucky!

On this exact date (28 February 2018), 6cm of snow came our way! At break time the children at FJS were playing with the snow, making snowballs, snowmen and much much more!

Even Miss Gray and Mrs Ellis were throwing snowballs, Mrs Ellis threw four and Miss Gray threw three, so Mrs Ellis won! We all had a brilliant time out in the crunchy, pearl, white snow! We hope it all comes back!
