Busy, busy week!

What a wonderful week it’s been!

In Maths, we have been learning about money. We have been learning about how to make different amounts of money using the least and the most coins, making change and began challenging ourselves with some problem solving. We have used cherry models and bar models to help us add amounts together and work out change.

In Literacy, we have been writing a set of instructions based on our delicious bread recipes. The children wrote a persuasive introduction telling the reader why they should follow this recipe, listed the ingredients and wrote clear, descriptive instructions to follow.

In Science, we took part in a Science investigation where we tested the best material to use as an umbrella for our teddies. The children considered what we needed to keep them the same in order to make it a fair test, decided the materials to test out and decided how much water to use.  Luckily, our teddy bears stayed quite dry throughout as many of our materials were waterproof. The children worked so well in groups during this experiment and displayed excellent communication skills.

As our topic this term is ‘Around the World’, we had a very exciting visit from Animal Man today! He spoke to us about lots of animals from around the world and told us about their habitats, eating habits and their lifestyle.

Thank you for all the amazing homework contributions to represent something you are looking forward to. Here are a few of them:
