Although this has been a shorter week with the Bank Holiday Monday, we have packed lots of exciting things in! We have enjoyed doing reading comprehensions in English and have spent time in our Maths lessons recapping fractions of shapes. In Science we went outside to look at the different plants in our school and we have continued to look after the cress we planted at the start of the term, making weekly observations in our Cress Diary. We have enjoyed the start of our Topic 'Emergency!' and we are learning lots of interesting facts about Florence Nightingale at the moment! Finally, in Music we have continued learning about pulse an we loved learning to play some notes on the recorders! A busy week for the Bold Badgers!
In English we have continued to work in our Phonics and English groups and in my group we have particularly been focusing on reading 'alien' words and longer two syllable word. In Maths we have revisited addition and subtraction word problems, using the column method to help us solve problems. We have learnt about running in PE and how to use our arms and legs to help us run more effectively. In Science we have planted our own cress seeds and we shall be looking after them over the next few weeks, watering them and making sure that they have plenty of sunlight to help them grow. In Music we thought about pulse and beat and we learnt a song about friendship. In RE we enjoyed learning about Passover and about the plagues of Egypt and we thought about how the Jews felt at different points on the story. Finally, in Art we have been learning about primary colours and the artist Piet Mondrian. We recreated our own collages in the same style using different shapes and straight lines.
