Purple Day was on Wednesday 21st June and was in aid of the ‘Kidsafe’ Charity
Class 4 was the place to learn all about ‘Sun Safety’.
In science this term we are learning all about plants. We have identified different parts of a tree and explored the differences between evergreen and deciduous trees. Today we looked at some of the deciduous trees outside of our school and had fun doing bark rubbings.
Class 3 have been writing instructions about how to take care of a pet. They came up with lots of good ideas about what different pets might need, and wrote clear instructions using numbered points, bossy verbs, adjectives and connectives!
Class 3 researched famous landmarks from around the world and created some brilliant sculptures of their chosen landmarks using clay. The clay felt very cold and squishy.
The completed sculptures included the Angel of the North, the Egyptian pyramids and even the Taj Mahal!
In maths this week we have been subtracting multiples of ten from 2 digit numbers, we were very good at counting back in tens! We know that when we take a multiple of ten away from a 2 digit number, the units digit always stays the same.
This week we have been learning all about capacity. We had fun estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers using non-standard units. We then began to look at standard units of measure and investigated which containers could hold more than 1 litre of water and which could hold less than 1 litre.
Class 3 did brilliantly in their assembly all about being healthy. They read lots of facts, acted out a story, read an acrostic poem and sang songs with loud, clear voices. Well done, class 3!
Class 3 are designing and creating structures using recycled materials as part of this terms art topic. They had fun making their structures and sticking on sugar paper to make them more colourful. Our classroom got very messy…
The children will begin to add more detail to their structures next week.
Class 3 have been learning all about 3D shapes. The children went on a 3D shape hunt and found lots of different 3D shapes in the environment. Then they named and labelled a range of 3D shapes and identified how many faces, edges and vertices each shape has.
Class 3 had a great trip to The Word yesterday. They recorded a video in the green screen room about the countries that Barnaby Bear has visited, and enjoyed using different apps on the iPads.
