This week the Matildas have sprung back into action with maths lessons covering our 3 times tables and tackling tricky division sums. In English we have been looking at far away land descriptions and using prepositions to people where things are in a setting!
It has also been the beginning of our new termly topic "Has technology changed the way we are entertained?" and we have been looking at different pieces of technology that were invented in the 1950s including the Kodak camera, the first black and white TV's and Telephones that were connected by operators! This blast from the past has already begun to show us how advanced modern-day technology really is.
All this and more has taken place whilst receiving a hip hop dance lesson in which we have had the opportunity to learn some breakdance moves and use some of our own moves to dance along to music by Queen.
Week beginning 12.01.20
This week the Matildas have tackled numbers in the 3 and 4 times table, written a descriptive opener about a faraway land (and drawn each other too!) and completed artwork to show the story of the Pentecost and in the style of Anthony Warhol for our 60s topic this week!
The Matildas have started to also look at their dreams and goals in Jigsaw this week which opened up some very interesting discussion and meant that we created brilliant dream flowers to see how our dreams would grow. We used our JIgsaw lesson this week to discuss what different type of goals we might have (it seems quite a few of the boys wanted expensive sports cars) ranging from life and career goals all the way to goals we might try to reach in all of our lessons in one week.
