This week we have been looking at the features of information leaflets. We created posters in small groups identifying all the different things we could see when looking at a range if leaflets. We the presented our findings to the class.
We have been continuing with our four times table karaoke songs which we are becoming very confident in. We have been looking at strategies to solve problems as well as identifying related number facts.
In Literacy we finalised our haiku poems and presented them in best on some art work of our chosen animal. We really enjoyed sharing our poems with each other and was proud of our finished pieces.
In art we have used chalks and pastels to create abstract pictures of different animals.
In Science we have been learning new topic vocabulary such as carnivores, omnivores, herbivores, producers, consumers, predator and prey. We have been using these words to label food chains. We have been identifying a range of food chains by looking at food webs. We didn't realise that humans can be included in the food chain too!
Welcome back, I hope that you have all had an amazing Christmas break with your families. It was lovely to hear about the holidays and all the nice things the children did.
We have had a great first week back. In Literacy we have been learning about Japanese haiku poems. These poems have three lines; with five syllables on the first line, seven on the second and five on the last line. The children have enjoyed clapping the syllables out in the poem and some even used a musical instrument to help them. Next week we will be creating our own haiku poems using predator animals as our inspiration.
In Maths we have been problem solving with multiples of three and trying to improve our mental Maths scores.
Gymnastics is our new focus in PE. We have been learning different balances and how to improve them with a partner.
Reggae music was the focus in recorders this week learning how to play freely to a rhythm. We had lots of fun listening to the music from Jamaica.
