Comparing Objects and Numbers
PSHE-Talking Point 2
Our book for talking point two was Charlie and Lola 'I will not ever never eat a tomato'. This book sparked discussion about our favourite fruits and vegetables and ones we are not so keen on! We got to try some pomegranate seed, kiwi, fig and apricot during a tasting session and we mapped our favourite on a bar chart. We have also talked about what a healthy diet looks like created our own healthy diet fridges.
Sketching skills - creating effects
We thoroughly enjoyed our first session in the art area this half term with Mr Kemp. We explored different pencils and observed the different marks they make. We then moved onto to experimenting with different sketching techniques such as cross hatching.
For the first three days of the term we got 100% attendance! Fantastic! Little G came to stay and we have had lots of fun watching him burrow in the sawdust! Miss Rushby also got Little G out and we all got to hold him. Lets keep us this great attendance!
Our Class Bear
At the beginning of the term Mrs Waby entered a competition to win us a class bear. Guess what? She won! Here we are putting in his stuffing to make him cuddly. Next week we will be having a vote to name him or her.
PSHE- Talking Point 1
This week we have been talking all about how to be healthy. We considered way we could keep both our minds and bodies healthy. Take a look at our list! At the end of the week we practised some meditation.
The Hare and the Tortoise
For our first full week back we shared the story of the Hare and the Tortoise. We talked about the attributes of the each of the characters and sorted them. Some of the characters shared the same attributes. We then created our own story maps and retold the story. Remember slow and steady wins the race!
We looked at our community in terms of our family, extended family, clubs we attend, Church or other religious group we might attend, our school, the local community etc. We then looked closer at our community here are school, who is a part of and what identifies us as a community.
Partitioning and recombining numbers
This week we have been learning to partition numbers in lots of different ways using the part/part/whole model, dienes, place value counters and place value charts. We have been recording them in a word sentences and as an addition sentences.
