Maths games with 2DIY.

23/03/2013 at 5:35 PM

In ICT this week we created our own ‘Pairs’ games using a program called 2DIY. We designed our pairs of cards, one card has a times table sum on it and the other has the answer. We changed the colours of the font and cards and some of us added some sound effects too.
The games are all saved as swf.files and Mrs Fisher is still learning how to embed them here on the blog, but if you click on the picture below, it will take you to Mrs Fisher’s website where she has managed to upload some of the games onto a special games page!
So click the link and enjoy our games! They will help you learn your tables and are lots of fun too!

20/03/2013 at 11:10 AM

Well done to all the children who are now regularly playing Mathletics – practise really does help you progress.

We are especially proud of anyone who manages to get into the Hall of Fame. The Student Hall of Fame shows children who have the highest daily scores and the Class Hall of Fame shows the class with the highest scores for the week.

This week Ben’s Mum has emailed these 2 great photos showing Ben in both the UK Student Hall of Fame and in the World Student Hall of Fame. We are all very porud of him. Well done, Ben. 🙂

Beware! The Gruffalo has been seen at Farsley Farfield!

17/03/2013 at 8:43 AM

We read the beginning of the Gruffalo story and thought about what the Gruffalo looked like and what sort of character he was. Then we were shocked and surprised to discover that he was hiding in our classroom and lurking about in the grounds! Luckily we then read the rest of the story and discovered that he wasn’t such a fearsome creature after all as the mouse manages to trick him and he is so frightened that he runs off! However we suggest that if you do see the Gruffalo you don’t approach him and you should report the sighting immediately to Mr Harris.

World Book Day and The Rainbow Fish.

17/03/2013 at 8:37 AM

Last week on World Book Day the children enjoyed going around all the different classes and hearing stories either about pirates or with a sea theme. In 2F classroom we shared the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish.’ The Rainbow Fish learns to share and gives away his shiny scales. He discovers how much happier he is when he has lots of friends. Each class helped to make some stunning fish collages and then on Monday morning the children in 2F finished them off and created sea collages so the fish could be displayed in our windows. Everyone can see the fish from the playground and they will remind us to share and be kind and caring friends to each other.

.

17/03/2013 at 8:27 AM

There once was a girl who made some paper dolls. They were Jasmine, Trimm, Triss ,Jemma ,Grace and Rachel with the bow. They danced and they sang and they met a dinosaur who blew fire and said,” I’m going to chop you up and cook you!”
But the paper dolls sang, “ You cant get us! Oh no no no! we’re holding hands and we wont let go !!!! We’re Jasmine ,Trimm, Triss, Jemma, Grace and Rachel with the bow!” And they danced to the computers and did some Mathletics.
Then they met a giant and he said, “I’m going to eat you up !”
But the paper dolls sang, “You can’t eat us! Oh no no no! We’re holding hands and we won’t let go were Jasmine, Trimm, Triss, Jemma, Grace and Rachel with the bow!
After that they met an Elephant and he shouted “I’m going to step on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” He did !
The Paper called, “Oh, no no no! We’re holding hands and we wont let go ! We’re Jasmine, Trimm, Triss, Jemma, Grace and Rachel with the bow!” The paper dolls had gone into the little girls memory…

World Book Day!

09/03/2013 at 4:42 AM

What a brilliant day! Everyone came to school dressed as characters from a book. You all looked amazing! The staff all came dressed as pirates. If it hadn’t been such a busy day, I would have take a photograph of the pirate crew too!

The children spent time in every class room and were read different stories by all the teachers and then did short activities with them. I read all the children the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish.’ It is a beautiful book which shows us all the importance of sharing. The children from Reception, Year 1 and 2LS worked together to collage some beautiful fish. Next week 2F will finish them off and they will be displayed in the class window, so that everyone in the playground can see them and they will be a constant reminder of the importance of sharing and friendships. Well done everyone – it was a brilliant day 🙂

Our last piece of homework in our Learning Logs was to write about our favourite books, author or illustrator. Thank you all for the hard work and effort you put in to doing your work. The new home work has just gone home. We are doing a topic called, ‘Who lives at Farsley Farfield?’ and for your homework you have been asked to find out about an animal you wished lived at Farsley Farfield and create a 2 page spread with pictures and writing about the animal. I’m sure you will all do some amazing work!

The Paper Dolls. By Elliot

09/03/2013 at 3:58 AM

There once was a little boy who made some paper dolls who we’re Elliot,Dilhan,Chloe,Alice and meghen with the bow. They flew into a lego box and met a lego monster who wanted too smash them and he said, “i’m going to smash you too peices!”

But the paper dolls sang “you can’t smash were holding hands and we won’t let go where Elliot,Dilhan,Chloe,Alice and Meghan with the bow!”

And they floated into the cloakroom where they met a coatmonster who said, “i’m going to suffucate you!”

But the paper dolls sang, “You can’t suffucate us we’re Elliot,Dilhan,Chloe,Alice and meghen with the bow!”  and they swang with a monkey to the reading corner.

In the  reading corner they played X-factor with the Mrs fisher’s ukuleles. Suddenly a big shadow fell on them, it was a dragon !!!!!!! Who said, “i’m going too fry you!”

But the paper dolls sang,”You can’t fry us! oh,no,no,no! We’re Elliot,Dilhan,Chloe,Alice and Meghan with the bow!”

And they sprinted into the playground where they met Edward scissors hands ,with the clever little boys.They had 6 pets,  3 cats ,2 cats and 1 puppy and they all pounced on the paper dolls and Edward scissor hands cut them up!!!!!!

But the paper Dolls weren’t gone.  The paper dolls flew into the little boy’s memory along with all the lego minifigures in the universe,remote controll cars , super hoeros , the little boy’s great grandma and great grandad. The little boy still  did’nt forget about his paper dolls.

When he was a dad he taught his own child how too make paper dolls. They were Ben,Bailey,Bavandeep,Ekam and Ayman with the cool top. The end.

The Paper dolls. By Polly

09/03/2013 at 3:51 AM

There once was a kind girl who made some paper dolls. They were Jasmine,Polly,Chloe,Meghan,Izzy,Dhaya,Amalia,Mum,Dad,Honeymk and Ben with the cool top. They went into some ones house and they played with toys and they met a child who was ANGRY and said “Im going to get you!” in a very mean voice.

But the paper dolls said  ‘Oh no’no’no you can’t catch us we’re holding hands and we wont let go! We’re Jasmine,Polly,Chloe,Meghan,Izzy,Dhaya,Amalia,Mum,Dad,Honeymk and Ben with the cool top” And they played maththletics, played Scrrable and went to read. They went off and they played Scrabble again and they met a girls Mum. Who said ‘Im going to get my husband and tell him to catch you!” And she screamed!

But the paper dolls sang “Oh no’no’no! You stop! We’re  holding hands and we won’t let go! We’re Jasmine,Polly,Chloe,Meghan,Izzy,Dhaya,Amalia,Mum,Dad,Honeymk and Ben with the cool top!” And they screamed at her!

Next they pretended to be characters from Horrid Henry but when Honeymk turned round they met a massive giant human who said’Im going to chop you up for good!”And he did!

The little girl cried. But the paper dolls flew into her memory where she kept all her other special things. She remembered her Hello Kitty hair brush and herclips,books,fairies,recorder and her piano.

She grew up and had her own child. He was a boy and she taught him how to make paper dolls and he named them Mum, Dad, Elliot, Ben and Bailey with the cool top!

There once was a little girl who made some paper dolls. They were Chloe,Sam ,Isabell, Molly, Honey and Jasmin with the slipers. They played on Mathletics and changed the settings on Mrs Fisher’s ipad!!! They danced and they sang and met a  dragon who said , ” I’m going to eat you all up.”

But the paper dolls sang ”Oh no no no you can’t get us where holding hands and we won’t let go. We’re Chloe, Sam Isabell, Molly, Honey and Jasmin with the slippers.” And they jumped onto the teachers shoulder.

They read a book and they played with lego bricks and met a robot who said “I’m going to throw  you in the bin,!”

But the paper dolls sang ” Oh no no no no! We’re holding hands and we won’t let go we’re Chloe , Sam, Isabell, Molly , Honey and Jasmin with the slippers. ”

Along came a cat who said,” I’m going to eat you for dinner!” And she did! “Your gone for ever!”

But the paper dolls flew into the little girls memory. In her memory there were fire works, cake, flowers, golden stars, cats and a teddy bear. Then the girl grew and grew and eventually she became a mother and she taught her own little girl how to make some paper dolls!

World Maths Day.

07/03/2013 at 6:21 AM

World Maths Day was a brilliant day. We did Maths all day and enjoyed every minute of it! First we went out side and used the playground markings to play some fun Maths games. When we came back inside we practised our tables. We sang some time table songs and some children used the Lego bricks to help them remember their 2x tables. Some of us had learned the 2x, 5x and 10x tables and were working on division facts and more time tables. After lunch we had a circuit of Maths games. We played Mathletics, played dice games likes Snakes and Ladders and Mr Men Numberlines, played card games like Money Snap and Numicon Dominoes and played the logical thinking game ‘Rush Hour.’ Rush Hour is also available as an app, so some of us played it on the ipad too!

Some of us wore pedometers when we went out to play and we made a record of how many footsteps we did!

It was a very busy day! We had lots of fun and practised lots of maths skills. We worked together and all encouraged each other and celebrated our successes together. Lots of children achieved their Mathletics certificates, Izzy and Amalia got into the student Hall of Fame and the class got into the Class Hall of Fame!
