Our targets this term are:
Maths: I can recall my 2x, 5x and 10x tables and division facts.
Reading: I can discuss and respond to a text I am reading.
Writing: I can learn and use my weekly spellings.
In Number Maths this term we have been looking at place value and making 2-digit numbers. The children show they can represent 2-digit numbers using Numicon!
In Topic Maths we have been looking at lines, angles and turns. Children ‘programmed’ their partner to make quarter, half or whole turns. They learned the vocabulary of right angle, 90 degree turns, 180 degree turns and 360 degree turns. Finally, we added clockwise and anti-clockwise to our directions.
Children went on an angle hunt in the classroom and found diagonal and horizontal lines.
Rocks & Soils Topic
The children have been creating and investigating their learning from fossils to volcanoes in our Term 1 Topic of Rocks and Soils.
You can watch a video of our exciting volcano simulation below:
In Big Write, the children have been writing about their class text, Stone Girl Bone Girl. They have retold a portion of the story and created a character profile!
Fossil Hunting at The Warren
Courtesy Class had a wonderful, adventurous time at The Warren in Folkestone! We spent the morning exploring the rocks and digging deep in the sand for fossils. After washing mountains of sand off, we enjoyed our lunch on the beach. Finally, more seashells had to be collected before the ride home.
