This week we have finally finished through blood, sweat and tears on our latest piece for our Published Writing Books. The children have worked tiredlessly to write, edit and re write their neat versions of Traction Man.
In Maths this week we have been learning about making groups of 10 to make counting on a lot easier. This has been very hard to grasp, but again, Mighty Moles have worked really hard with this. We will be continuing with this throughout this week. We will then be turning this into number sentences and looking at seeing if we can spot the pattern when we add 10.
Throughout our Continuous Provision this week children have been looking at The Lego Story and how it has changed over the years, children have then created a timeline using pictures and the internet to research. We have then talked about how we know toys are from the olden days and how we know they are new.
Thank you to everyone for support Sport Relief, my legs are still hurting from our work out in the morning.
Thank you also, to those who continue to get their Fab 5 Reader completed. It really does make a difference.
This week in English/Book Week we have been looking at the book 'Manfish'. The story is about Jacques Cousteau who seems to have taken our attention. We started the week by wondering what a Manfish actually is, we talked about compound words and what clues did we have from the front cover. We drew and labelled our ideas explaining why we did what we did. Throughout the week we read the story and learnt a lot of different facts about Jacques Cousteau through different methods. We used our QR reader to scan codes and find facts, we put sentences back together that had been cut up to reveal more facts. With all the facts that we gathered throughout the week we then wrote our Fact File.
In Art we used oil pastills to create a seascape like in our book. We used lots of different materials to collage our fish and jellyfish,
In D&T we have learnt about split pins and how they work ready for when we design and create our own puppet.
In Maths we have been learning about 'Weight'. We have estimated what is heavier or lighter and put them into full sentences. We also learnt what is meant when two things weighed the same.
This week in English we have created a Story Mountain with pictures all about Traction Man and his new Arch enemy that the children created for thier homework. We have had some fantastic ideas and this has really shown in their writing. From the story mountains children then wrote the opening of their story including what characters are in it and setting the scence. We then used our editting skills and have produced another piece of writing for our Published Writing Books.
In Maths this week we have been looking at representing numbers in different ways including using the word for each number to 20. We then used different concrete items to show the number.
We are lucky to have Premier Sport in again this half term for our PE and we are learning all about net/wall for the next 6 weeks.
In Design and Technology this week we have started looking at designing our 'Moving Toy Puppet' we have learnt how to use a split pin to make two different pieces of paper move. I am looking forward to see the end products.
We have had a really busy week, thank you to those who helped children get their Fab 5 score.
