In Literacy we have been watching weather forecasts to gather vocabulary and using the words to write a weather report. We used the ipads to record each other presenting a weather forecast. We watched our friends presenting the weather on the Interactive Whiteboard. In Maths we have been dividing numbers and solving word problems. In Art we recreated one of Andy Goldsworthy’s pieces of artwork.
In Literacy we have been using adjectives to describe characters and using the word ‘because’ to extend our sentences. We have really enjoyed place value in our Maths lessons. In Art we have been taking inspiration from the artist Andy Goldsworthy; we have been doing observational drawings of leaves. In Science we planned an experiment using our knowledge of materials. We looked at extreme weathers during our Place and Time lesson.
We have been looking for alliteration in stories and poems. We wrote alliteration for our names and used the dictionaries to support. In Maths we have been adding coins and different amounts of money together. We sorted the materials into two groups; natural and man-made. We have been watching weather forecasts to gather vocabulary and to give us ideas for making weather symbols.
In Literacy we have been using pronouns to improve our sentence writing. In Maths we have been finding ½ and ¼ of shapes. We painted a Winter scene using watercolours. We loved our trip to the Pantomime to see Snow White.

We really enjoyed performing our play ‘The Litter Muncher’ to our families. In Literacy we have been identifying nouns and proper nouns. In Maths we have been using the clocks to read and write half past times. The Grey Mouse Challenge was to read and write quarter past times. In French we sang a song about decorating the tree. Tomorrow we will be following instructions to make, bake and decorate biscuits.
In Maths we have been reading and writing o’clock times and we have been sequencing our day. In Literacy we have been writing stories and we have been focusing on using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. In Art we painted our clay creatures. We enjoyed looking at our baby photographs and writing about how much we have changed.
This week we made food people using recycled objects and tomorrow we will be making fruit based dishes using the left over fruit from our classes. We had a visit from Godfrey’s Fish and Chip shop; they taught us about overfishing and how they sourced the fish they sell in the shop. In Literacy we have been identifying verbs and we have been writing sentences using the verbs. In Maths we made Numicon number lines and explored the relationship of numbers. In Art we made our creatures using clay.
We have been retelling the ‘Gunpowder Plot’ story. In Maths we have been collecting data in the form of a tally chart. We did a shop survey of St Albans High Street. We then used the information to answer questions. In Art we started our ‘Take One Picture’ project by creating and describing our own creatures.
