This week we have been using natural resources to create our own small worlds – we used our imagination and thought about what we could use the natural objects for.
“This is my world, it has chairs for people to sit and watch the sea”
“This is the beach, it has sand here and water here. There’s a big bench at the top so people can sit down and have an ice cream.”
“This is my forest for the fairies to live in. They can hide under these big trees here or they can sit at the sparkling table that has diamonds on it.”
This week in Maths we have been estimating. We learnt that estimate is a posh word for a guess. We also learnt that we must make sensible estimates.
We have estimated how many marbles in jars, how many pirates are on a boat, how many cubes we can fit in various size containers and how many cubes we can fit in our shoes.
Class 2 were fantastic at making sensible, accurate estimates!
As part of The Commonwealth we have been taken part in various activities – we have created our own flags, discussed and written about our favourite sports from The Commonwealth Games and painted our very own queens!
As part of our themed week for World Book Day we have been reading ‘Can a Shark Do Gymnastics?’ We learnt about questions and question marks and then had a go at reading and answering some silly questions about sharks.
We all came into school dressed in ‘Under the Sea’ costumes. How fantastic are they?
