This week we have continued to with the book, The Queen's Hat. We have been writing sentences with exclamation mark and what it means when we see one in a book. We have also learnt about reptition and question sentences when writing. We are really excited to find out what happens next.
In Maths this week, we have had lots of equipment out and learning about the value of tens and ones in a number. We represented lots of different numbers and matched the correct numeral to the base 10 that we made.
In D&T this week, we have started a very exciting project, 'Taxi'. We have talked about wheel, axles and chassis on vehicle and how they work together to make a vehicle move. We designed our own cars in preparation for next week when we begin the building process. Watch this space!
For our football session this week, we learnt how to dribble the ball keeping it under control and close to our feet. We learnt different ways to pass the ball using different parts of our feet.
In ICT today, we learnt and made our own pictograms asking our friends how they traveeled to school. We saved our pictograms on Purple Mash.
Another great week - Well done Mighty Moles.
This week in English we have been using the book The Queen’s Hat. We have looked at the front cover and read the first page. From this we gathered lots of different adjectives to best describe Buckingham Palace. We chose our favourite and put it into a sentence. Throughout the week we have been using exclamation marks, used onomatopoeic and the prefix ‘un’ (for example, if the root word is happy and we add the prefix ‘un’ it turns the word into unhappy and what that does to the sentence). I have been very impressed with how everyone has worked in English this week, we have really taken it up a notch.
In Maths, we have finished our work on 2D and 3D shapes and repeated pattern. The children really enjoyed our hands on lessons this week and produced some great work for our display.
We had our first football session this week and everyone really enjoyed it. We played lots of different games with the ball at our feet learning how to keep it under control.
In Geography we learnt about physical features of the United Kingdom describing them ensuring we used the correct vocabulary such as, hill, mountain, river, lake, forest and so on. We talked lots about them being naturally created features of Earth.
Our Music lesson really showed that we have some “movers” in Mighty Moles. Our lesson involved finding the beat and acting it out by clapping or stomping and singing.
A very busy but good week. Well done Mighty Moles.
Although it has been a short week this week, we seem to be full steam ahead and got through so much already!
We have started our new Topic, 'Bright Lights, Big City' and have mind mapped what we already know and have also written questions about what we want to know by the end of the Topic.
We have started looking at some tourist attractions in London. We watched a video of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace which led nicely on to The Queen, who she is, what she does, where she lives, how she got there and much more. Children spent an afternoon arranging a special tea party like the one the Queen holds in her gardens. They made crowns, bunting, menus and even cups of tea. It was invite only though!
Our new Christian Value this half term is Thankfulness. We spent some time thinking about what we are thankful for and different ways of how we can show this.
In Maths today, we recapped some 2D shapes, sorting them and talking about their properties in preparation for 3D shapes next week.
A short but jam packed 'half a week'.
