Week beginning 14.5.18
This week in English, we have looked at the four sentence types and practised writing different sentence types on whiteboards. We have also thought about adjectives and expanded noun phrases and used these to help us describe a castle picture.
In Maths, we have finished off looking at lines of symmetry of shapes and we have spent some time working through word problems using all four operations.
We have started to think about our Topic for next term - the seaside - and we have thought about what we know about the seaside already and what we want to find out about it, ready for our enquiry-based learning next half term.
Finally, we enjoyed thinking about the Royal Wedding during our continuous provision time in the afternoons. We dressed up, acted out the ceremony, thought about what food they could have and about how they would travel to the church. We have had a lovely week and the Bold Badgers made my birthday very special by creating birthday cards for me during continuous provision time too!
Week beginning 7.5.18
This week we have been reading, reading and reading in English! We have reading different texts and answering different styles of comprehension questions. We especially enjoyed learning about the Victorians and how they started going on holidays to the seaside. In Spellings, we have continued to learn about the suffix -ed and how to add this to words that end in a 'y'.
In Maths, we have been thinking about 2D and 3D shapes and we have started looking at lines of symmetry, learning practically by folding different shapes.
We have enjoyed our PE sessions and have been concentrating on movement and balance this week as well as working in teams and counting how many burpees we could do ... exhausting!
In Art we have done some pencil sketches of a teddy bear, focusing on creating areas of shading to create a 3D effect and finally, in RE we have learnt about and labelled the main parts of a Synagogue. A busy week in the Bold Badger classroom!
Week beginning 16.4.18
We have had a good first week back and have thrown ourselves into our learning!
In Maths we have been finding fractions of different shapes using paper, bread and biscuits to help us. We will be moving on to finding fractions of numbers next week. We have also continued to practise our arithmetic skills, including using column addition and subtraction to help us solve different sums.
In English we have been learning about singular and plural nouns. We have also looked at different types of words and identified nouns, verbs, adjectives and some of us have identified adverbs as well! We have been practising our spelling and we have looked at the spelling rule of adding -ed.
In PE we have started to look at ball control and we practised our skills at tackling obstacle courses to help improve our agility. We have also been lucky to have visitors in school who are delivering 12 sessions on Everyone Active. We are all looking forward to the second session next week.
In RE we are starting to look at weddings (very topical with the Royal Wedding approaching!) and we have looked at how Christians celebrate marriage and the roles of different people in a Christian wedding.
Finally, we enjoyed our Friday afternoon in the sunshine exploring our Forest Schools area, What a great week and the sunshine has smiled on us too!
