On our British Values day, what could be more British than a visit from ducklings? We also made sandwiches but not near any eager beaks! We thought about democracy and voted the winners to the home learning task. We considered diversity by looking at children from different faiths and thinking whom we'd like to make friends with.
In Literacy, we played sentence games to improve our grammar skills.
In Maths, we sorted 3D shapes by the descriptions given and we talked about the faces, corners and edges of them.
In Art, we made dragon images using found materials. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed working together to create our dragons.
Our trip to the Church was so interesting! One group found ninety-six crosses in different forms around the Church. Them we learnt about the Baptism Spoon designed in the shape of a scallop shell. We are really enjoying our R.E topic on Holy and Sacred places!
In Science this week, we were given five different foods for different pets. Which food was eaten by which animal? We talked about how we know which food is eaten by which animal. This led us to talking about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. One of the foods, we looked at was dried mealworms- yuck! The birds enjoy them though.
This week we were introduced to the book, Zog, by Julia Donaldson. We spent some time describing Zog using adjectives and words ending with the suffixes, 'est' and 'er'.
In Maths, we have been measuring length.
In Science, we went outside and pulled up some of the daffodil bulbs that we planted in the autumn. After looking at them carefully we made diagrams. We also went on another spring walk and made a class book.
There was an amazing turnout for our 'Red Carpet Event'. We shared our Book Week books and our Great Fire of London learning. We also showed our Maths, Science and English working walls.
