This week we took our learning outside to the 100 square in the playground to revise our maths knowledge! We had to find an odd or even number, a number bigger or smaller than a given number and numbers between certain numbers. This was great fun and we will be doing this again soon.
We have also been learning about capacity and estimating how many cups will fill various sized containers. We learnt how to do a tally chart to count up how many cups it took to fill the container.
In Science, we have continued our studies on animals. This week we looked at animal classifications and then researched some facts about amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds and fish. We all went around the classroom and looked at a variety of non-fiction texts and scribed our findings on a large piece of paper for each group of animals. At the end of the lesson we shared all of our findings.
We were very excited to discover that some of our tadpoles have developed into little froglets! We will be releasing them into the pond before we break up for half term so they can make a new home in the school pond area.
In English this week, we have been looking at the book ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr. We used our imaginations to think about what it would be like if a tiger really did come to our houses for tea! Then we pretended we knew the tiger from the story and wrote some invitations for the tiger to come to our class for a tea party. Next, we thought about how to write instructions on how to make sandwiches. Finally, we followed our instructions to make real sandwiches for a class tea party! And guess what...the tiger came! We all had fun making and eating our sandwiches!
We have continued our studies on Florence Nightingale and have transformed our role play area into a hospital so we could pretend to be doctors and nurses!
That’s it for now! Have a lovely half term holiday!
