We explored fractions in maths this week. We looked to see if shapes could be halved or quartered equally. We discussed the importance of each half or quarter being equal.
In PE, we created our own poses and movements to show different parts of a skeleton story.
Poppy paintings for remembrance.
We have been exploring a new story this week 'Mr Gumpy's Motor Car.' We made character puppets, used small world to act out the story and drew story maps.
We followed recipes to make different types of sensory playdough on Friday. We measured our ingredients accurately and made observations using our senses throughout the making process. We used the playdough in groups and compared the texture, look and smell of each dough.
We used the terms sweet, salty, sour and bitter to describe the taste of different foods.
We used our sense of smell to identify and describe different food and drink.
This week, we explored our sense of hearing. We went on a sound hunt around the school grounds and recorded what we could hear. We had fun trying to make the loudest shaker we could and had even more fun testing them out!
We have been exploring our sense of sight this week. We followed instructions to make glasses with coloured lenses and explored the school wearing them. We discussed why our sense of sight is important and thought about how it felt when our sight was different.
We worked in pairs to mirror movement and balances. We had to pay close attention to what our partner was doing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our duck visitors this week. A massive thank you to Mr Rowely for teaching us all about them.
We have been talking about our homes this week. We have considered what makes our homes special and how they keep us safe. We looked at how houses have changed over time and painted pictures of our own homes.
We have been exploring shape this week. We can name a range of different shapes and describe their properties.
Our story character, Claire, has a bad knee in the story. We each created a medicine to help mend her bad knee. Some of us had a go at writing the recipe.
Who can build a tower using the most bricks?
We really enjoyed exploring the text 'Willy the dreamer' this week. We made dream catchers to share in assembly.
Thank you to parents to who came along to the 'meet the teacher' session after school today. It was lovely to meet you all properly.
