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.
In Maths we have been looking at multiplication through repeated addition. In Literacy we have been writing rhyming poems about our homes. We used charcoal to create different buildings from around the world. We have been preparing for the Phonics Screener; the sounds/spellings we focussed on this week: aw, air, ie, ue and split digraphs.
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.
