They Lived Happily Ever After…

In Maths we have been gathering data for the type of homes we live in. The children gathered the data in the form of a tally chart and then transferred the data onto a bar chart and pictogram. They then interpreted the data. In Literacy we have been reading ‘The Three Little Pigs’; we created story maps to help us to retell the traditional story. In Art we have been using the charcoal to create famous buildings from around the World.

 

Left, Right, Left, Right!

This week in Literacy we have continued with our poetry theme but moved on from acrostic poems, to rhyming poems. The children thought of words that rhymed with language they had gathered about their homes and then wrote their own Home poems. In Maths we have been discussing positional language. We have used this language to direct our friends and Beebots. In Art we tried copying “House with Thatched Roofs, Cordeville” by Vincent Van Gogh with oil pastels.
