In English this week we have been planning and writing our own detective narratives. We have written our problem penguins and have started to plan our elephant endings. The stories are great and we cannot wait to read the endings of each others stories.
In maths this week, we have been looking at subtraction. We have used our number bonds, counting back and used many resources to help. In Mastering Number we have been focusing on the number eight.
We have carried on looking at different habits in Geography, this week we have been looking at the oceans in particular the whale shark. We made our very own whale shark and then created a habitat for it to live in the classroom. We then recapped our knowledge on continents and placed them and the equator on our blank map.
This week we celebrated interfaith week. The children listened to the story of Nasruddin beautifully and they decided that we should never judge someone on their outside but what is on the inside. We discussed how our actions make others feel.
In our RE lesson this week, you focused on the story 'Turning water into wine'. We watched the story and discussed what that meant. We watched as we turned water into 'wine' with food colouring. Then we made our own water jugs.
In computing, we played on the BeeBot app. Thinking carefully about moving the BeeBot around the courses, by using coding.
In our HeartSmart lesson this week, talking about power. We identified different sources of power in the classroom. Then we talked about how we all have a special power which we can use to make others feel good or bad. We discussed using our special power to be kind. This links to the Bible reference: For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life. John 3:16.
Inspired by Eric Carle, we have finished our final pieces in art. We used the tissue paper we have decorated and traced our design. Once we had cut out our traced shapes we placed them to create our desired shape. Many different animals were created and we were all super proud of our final pieces. Well done team!
In music this week, we chose to play either, a percussion instrument, or to use our bodies to create body percussion. We practised playing to our 'animals' song. So we could follow the onscreen composition, we reduced the tempo to allow us time to focus on our time to play. We are happy with the animals we have chosen to be part of our song. We had to think very carefully before choosing our instrument as it needed to represent the movement or sounds the animals make.
Mr Hadfield started forest school by reading us the story 'king of the tiny things'. We predicted what had happened to the king at the end of the story. The king of tiny things set a task to look after different insects. Mr Hadfield gave us all a digger and home. We went on a hunt to find lots of different insects, making sure they were safe in the micro habitats we made for them. Once we had created our habitats. We had a go at using the dragon sneezes and toasted marshmallows on the fire.
This week's homework is all about adding -s and -es to words on Spagtastic.
