We have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes this term. Miss Mda gave a table challenge. We had to work as collaborative cats and build the tallest tower we could using the different shapes on our table. We all worked really hard together and had lots of fun.
Three little pigs
We have been learning about the three little pigs and creating our own characters. We then had to retell the story using our new characters and some of us were adventurous aardvarks and did our first every independent big writing!
In topic we have been learning about different homes around the world and how they have similarities and differences. After looking at different materials we got to create our very own house using Lego, spaghetti, marshmallows, straws and paper. It was fun trying to blow them all down after.
Doubling, halving and quarters
In math number we have been doing lots of work on doubling, halving and quartering. It’s been really fun using different resources such as: ladybirds, pizza and skittles to explore the different ways we can double, half and quarter.
Free the wolf
After reading The Real Story of The Three Little Pigs we decided that the wolf had been wrongly sent to jail and he should be free. We created posters and even wrote letters to the police to free him. Hopefully he is let go soon.
We have being learning all about 3D shapes in our maths topic lesson. We created 3D shapes using different resources and some of us were real adventurous aardvarks.
