Term 6 Week 3
This week we have all been to the post office to post our letters that we wrote to Greenpeace. We took the letters to the counter and asked the lady how much it would be to post the letters and then bought the stamps. After that we took the letter out to the postbox and posted them.
We have completed more work on animals this week we sorted them into different groups. Those that can fly, have hair or fur and have legs. We soon realised some of the animals would go into more than one group. When we had finished this we worked in small groups researching where different animals lived using the computer, books or fact sheets.
Term 6 Week 2
Here is some of our animal prints that we made using pastel crayons in Art.
This week we have continued our work on 'The Lion Inside.' We pretended we were one of the characters and thought about what they would say and then wrote our own speech bubbles for that character. Then we wrote a diary entry as the mouse in the story about how he was feeling and what he was doing to help him find his inner roar and be brave.
We have continued to work on numbers to 100 this week. To start with we looked at how many tens and ones are in a number.
34 = 3 tens and 4 ones
Then we moved on to adding them using partitioning into tens and ones.
2 3 + 3 4 =
/ \ / \
20 3 30 4
2 0 + 3 0 = 50
3 + 4 = 7
5 0 + 7 = 5 7
Also we have worked on our own fact files all about Lions. First of all we shared any ideas or facts we already knew about Lions. Then we had a sheet and worked in groups highlighting any fact we thought were important and then put all this information together.
Term 6 Week 1
Welcome back to the last term of this school year we have another busy term ahead of us.
This week we have started to look at our new book the 'The Lion Inside' which is all about a little mouse who is shy and quite but then finds her inner roar and becomes friends with the lion.
We then went on to write our own descriptions of either the lion or the mouse.
During Maths this week we have worked on counting to 100 in lots of different ways. Then we worked on lots of addition to 100 sums. Also we worked on partitioning numbers to 100 into ten's and ones.
68= 6 tens and 8 ones
23= 2 tens and 3 ones
In the afternoons we have been looking at the different seasons Spring, Summer, Winter and Autumn. We sorted different objects into the correct seasons and then wrote a description about the seasons.
In Music we listened to some lions and tigers and then using musical instruments we worked in small groups to recreate the noises that they make.
