9 Times Table


Today for maths we have created a DLO using our 9 times tables. Last week we wrote down our 9 times tables so we would be able to know them ourselves, to create our 9 times tables. We used our 10 times table knowledge to help us complete our 9 times tables. We were able to write down what we had already known and just times it by 10 to finish it off.  We were able to finish it off by working in pairs or finish it our self.

Kiwi Can

This week for Kiwi can we were learning to work as a team. Our topic this term was is integrity. Integrity means to show kindness when no one else is looking and doing the right thing. In kiwi can we talked about how we can show how we can respect others in our own ways. To show integrity we played a game called captain ball. The aim of the game was that their were 4 teams and we needed to choose 1 captain to the ball to. This game was quite hard because lots of people were trying to hit the ball away from us.

The Unfinished Drink


Today we have been reading a poetry about the La Tour Mollet (Ted) d'Auvergne. Then wrote a small paragraph of 25 words about the Unfinished Drink. I felt sad when I read this poem because he died in the ww2 but I also felt happy because the bar owner still puts the beer bottle up as a memorial for his loss.
