Maths: We have been learning all about volume this week. The children have been experimenting with different size containers and using objects to work out the volume. The children selected a variety of containers and had to count the objects to find out how many fit in each container. The children then changed the objects to see if that made a difference.
English: We have been looking at our new book ‘The Curious Garden’. Can you tell a grown up what we know about the book so far? The children have all had a go at writing setting descriptions, feeling bubbles and character descriptions this week. Their writing has been fantastic as the children have included adjectives, conjunctions, varying sentence openers as well as all of the other things we ask. Well done everyone!!!
PE: We have been having a go at different balancing games in PE. The children each had a ball and had to move a certain way without dropping the ball in different places on their bodies. Following this, we played team races and the children were encouraged to show sportsmanship by congratulating and supporting one another.
Science: Following planting our sunflowers, the children have been researching the life cycle of a sunflower. The children had to order pictures and then explain each step the sunflower goes through in order to grow. Can you remember the life cycle of a sunflower to tell someone in your family?
DT: We have been planning our own curious gardens from our English book and this week we started to create the gardens. The children had to think about the materials they needed and how they were going to create different effects.
Have a fantastic long weekend and I will see you all on Tuesday.
