Who’s Been Sitting in My Chair?

In Literacy we have been retelling the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. In Maths we have been using different methods to solve addition and subtraction number sentences. We used Google Earth to explore homes from around the World. We discussed what we are good at and what we have achieved.

 

Paradise!

We had such a fun day at the Zoo. We saw lots of animals, learnt about their habitats and explored the World of Dinosaurs. We were so impressed with the children’s behaviour.

It’s Electrifying!

In Literacy we have been reflecting on our year and what we have achieved. In Maths we have been problem solving using division. We have been predicting, experimenting and evaluating with the electrical circuits.

I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff…

We had a visit from The Big Bad Wolf but our school was too strong to blow down! We have been reading ‘The True Story of The Three Little Pigs’; we became the wolf to write diary entries. We have been investigating scaling using repeated addition and multiplication. . We did observational drawings from the window.     

 

          

 

‘Not by the Hair on My Chinny, Chinny Chin!’

In Maths we have been solving problems using multiplication and scaling. We have been ordering and retelling the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. In Science we identified different types of electrical items. We thought about what type of electricity we use the most and why.
