As it is Sustainable Week we have been planting beans, tomatoes and peas in recycled pots. In Maths we have been sharing equal and unequal amounts. In Literacy we have been gathering language in preparation for writing our stories. We created our bedrooms in the style of Van Gogh. We used the laptops to present data using tally charts, bar charts and pictograms.
In Maths we have been exploring different ways of measuring. We used a ruler to measure the length of objects. We used the scales to measure with non-standard and standard units of measure. In Literacy we have been preparing to write our own stories; we gathered language and created story maps. Our topic this term is Houses and Homes.
Next week is Sustainable St Albans Week! Please bring in plastic pots (e.g. yogurt pots, plastic tubs) for us to plant with.
We have had a very busy but fun week celebrating International Week. Our focus continent was Asia. We recreated ‘The Golden Pavilion’ that is in Japan. We looked at the artist Hokusai and made a representation of his famous work ‘The Great Wave’. We used marbling ink to make Asian fans. We had some amazing workshops from parents; we made Chinese buildings using stamps, painted Russian spoons, made our own Picasso art work and we are looking forward to the Arcimboldo Workshop tomorrow.
In Maths we have been reading and solving word problems. We used the cherry model and bar model to record the answers. In Literacy we watched the clip ‘Lily and the Snowman’; we gathered vocabulary, sequenced the clip and will be writing the narrative. We had a visit from Affinity Water and Mad Science; they taught us how clouds are formed and how we need to save water.

Our focus this term is to use neat handwriting and to start to use joins within our writing. We have introduced the joins: at, all, th, ch, in, im this week. In Literacy we have been gathering language from weather reports. In Maths we have been finding the parts that make up a whole number using the cherry model:
We have also been looking at the relationship between the numbers using + and -.
Next week we will be making our boats to test if they float or sink. Please collect the materials the children need. In Art we will be creating the sticks/leaves sculpture that we have designed. Please collect leaves and sticks over the weekend.
In Maths we have been making amounts using two or more numbers. We explored equality and balancing by finding different ways of making an amount. In Literacy we have been imagining we are in a storm. We have been gathering language to use in a diary entry describing the weather. In Science we have been using our knowledge of materials to plan how we will make our boats.
