Our targets for this term are:
Reading: To answer questions about what has happened in the story.
Writing: To spell the tricky truck words correctly in my writing – my, was, he, she, I, A, the, is.
Maths: To count forwards and backward from any given number up to 20, 30 and 50.
Maths - Number
This term we have been looking at the value of numbers, counting objects and pictures and matching them to the correct number. We then used our knowledge to help us find numbers that are one more and one less.
Maths - Topic
In topic maths we have explored length and height – order object, pictures and people. We also measured items around the classroom to see how many hands tall or long they were. We are now experimenting with the capacity of different containers (looking at how many cubes or how much water we can get into different things). We have learnt that both the height and the width of a container can affect how much we can get into it.
Our class story is Beegu – the story of an alien who is lost on Earth. She is a friendly creature who just wants to make friends and find her way home. We have made story maps to help pick out some of the key bits in the story in the correct order.
Mr Cook inspired us with music performed by an orchestra. As we listened to the music we drew what we imagined we could hear – some of us thought the wind was whipping through the trees, others thought it was a build up to a storm or maybe it was fireworks exploding?
