As part of our Easter Participation activity this year, we have made these rabbits. We had to work calmly and keep going, even when it got tricky, They look great!
To finish our topic on Plants, we had a TASC day where we were set a task to complete. We had to ‘Redesign Mr McGregor’s Garden”. We had a great day – planning, making and evaluating. Here are some of our gardens during the making stage, and the finished pieces. We worked really hard and showed great resilience. We decided that if we are able to complete the task again in the future we would add scarecrows to scare away the birds, and build the greenhouse out of stronger material to keep them up”
This term we are learning all about plants. We have started a bean experiment in the classroom which we set up on our windowsills.
We went outside to our planters and have planted some bulbs and seeds. We hope to grow carrots, onions, radishes and some flowers.
In maths we have been using drawings and jottings to help us with our adding. We have been partitioning the numbers and finding the totals. We were also given a challenge from Mrs Belchem to solve some trickier questions – we did fantastically!
In English we have been learning the story of ‘The Naughty Little Rabbit’. This week we thought about where else Peter could have caused mischief and wrote our own stories. They were great!
We also thought about a new main character and what they could have got up to. We chose animals such as foxes, elephants, unicorns and cats. We choose our new settings such as McDonalds, KidzPlanet, Priory Fields School and even the moon. Our characters were really cheeky and mischievous.
For Let’s Count, we learnt all about pictograms where you draw a picture to represent items. To help up begin, we all chose our favourite colour and created a pictogram to represent this.
We had to go and count the number of deciduous and evergreen trees we could see. We really enjoyed going out and classifying these trees, and made a tally chart. When we returned to the classroom we put these figures onto Bar Graphs to see our findings clearly.
NHS & Mary Seacole
We learnt all about the NHS and Mary Seacole. We were shocked to hear that not long ago, people had to pay for the NHS. Also, we couldn’t believe Mary Seacole was told she couldn’t help in the war because of the colour of her skin. We wrote some fact files on her with all the interesting facts we found out and learnt about her.
