Our targets this term are:
Writing: I learn my weekly spellings and use them correctly in my own writing.
Maths: I know the 3 and 6 times table and their related division facts.
Reading: I refer to the text when answering RIC comprehension questions.
We tried to start off the year with some fun. The children had a great time finding adjectives to describe the things they found lurking in the boxes on their tables. As you can see from their faces, we all had to be brave and a bit messy!
We had great fun making cubes to see which nets worked and which didn’t. The children became quite good at predicting which would work and which wouldn’t. It was good to see everyone getting involved and being collaborative cats to help each other out.
Drawing the Solar System
We finished the term by trying to draw the solar system (to scale). We had to measure string, cut it to length and then use it to make giant human compasses to draw the orbits of the planets. Everyone was an adventurous aardvark and gave it a good go even if it was tricky at times! A very good growth mind-set activity!
