Week Beginning 07/10/19
In English, the children have been focusing on retelling the story so far in the first person, 'I' and writing about how Anna felt. I have been really impressed with their writing and how some children are even starting to use, 'because.'
In maths, we have started to look at addition. The children have learnt about the part/whole model and how this links to writing addition number sentences.
In science, the children learnt about the last sense, taste. They had some marshmallows, dark chocolate and lemons to taste and to decide which category they fell into. They really enjoyed this lesson and some funny faces were made!
Week Beginning 30/09/19
In English the children have explored the setting of underwater. They labelled the nouns and used adjectives to describe what they could see and feel. They then wrote these up into sentences. I was very impressed with the writing they produced.
In maths, the children have been continuing to explore numbers and how to use a number line. They really enjoyed using the numicon to show numbers that are greater than or less than and drawing the symbols on the table.
In science, we have continued to explore our senses, focusing on hearing and smelling. The children smelt different pots and had to work out what was in each pot. Some of the smells were more pleasant than others!
Week Beginning 23/09/19
In English this week, the children have created their own map to navigate to find gold. They thought about adjectives to describe each section and then wrote instructions so that someone could follow the map.
In maths the children have further explored the sequencing of numbers, focusing on 1 less than 1 more than a number. The children are becoming confident in this area and are quickly recalling these.
In science, the children explored the sense of sight and touch. They played a game of I spy followed by pulling out objects from a feely bag and using adjectives to describe what they feel like.
Week Beginning 16/09/19
In English this week, the children have started looking at the story, ‘How to Find Gold.’ We read the first page and thought about the characters Anna and the crocodile. The children came up with some excellent adjectives to describe their appearance and personality and then they wrote these into sentences. Some children were even able to write a sentence with two adjectives in separated by a comma!
In maths, the children have been thinking about the sequencing of numbers. The children have looked at different representations and filled in missing numbers.
Our first science lesson took us on a exploration of the human body. We thought about our external body parts, where they are located and what they are used for. This has led us nicely to next weeks lesson where we will start to further explore our 5 senses.
