Home, Sweet Home
This term our topic is Home Sweet Home. Mrs Copping and Mrs Watson made us builder for the week and we had to design, make and test new houses for the Three Little Pigs to live in. We could choose our own materials and we had to predict if our houses would survive the wind! We found out that plastic and wooden bricks were the strongest materials but the other houses did survive with the odd wobble.
We had an imaginative art lesson and designed fantasy houses! The most popular features were swimming pools and water slides.
In Maths we have been learning about halves and quarters. We have learnt how to do this with quantities, numbers and shapes. This is us practicing splitting an amount of skittles into quarters. We counted carefully to make sure each quarter had the same number.
Three Little Pigs
Our story this term has been the Three Little Pigs. Today we put the wolf in the hot seat and fired questions at him to try and find out the truth. We wrote lots of questions and he gave some very interesting answers. We found out that actually when he blew the straw house he had a very bad sneeze which blew the straw away!
