Thank you for the superb effort with the children's homework of creating your own food plate. The responses were brilliant and we were thrilled to see the detail, effort and creativity that had gone into creating them. Please see the photos below for some of the plates that came into school. I think you'll agree they look good enough to eat!
On Monday we went on a walk in the local area. Our aim was to heighten the children's awareness of their world around them. On our walk we spotted signs, clues, people and lots of other geographical features both human and physical. Back in the classroom, the children talked about their findings and observations and had clearly gleamed a great deal from the trip. It was a character building trip too, as the great British Weather showed its true colours with a short but powerful downpour! Why not ask the children if they can tell you the difference between human and physical features in geography?
In class this week we have started a new unit in English, which is how to write an adventure story and in Maths we have continued to look at money and learnt how to add pounds and pence together using the column method.
The adventure story we are looking at together is called 'The Tunnel'. It is an adventure story about two siblings. Why not ask your child if they enjoyed the story? What was their favourite part? Would they change the ending? Please see below for the link to the slide share if you wish to read it again at home.
In Science we have continued to look at the human and animal skeletons and learnt about endoskeletons, exoskeletons and hydro skeletons. We then moved onto joints in the human body and learnt the names of the four joints and where in the body we will find them. There is more online to explore if your child would like to discover more, just follow the link below.
Have a wonderful weekend. If it is becoming difficult to wake in the morning, don't worry because half term is just around the corner!
