In English we have been looking at Nonsense poetry, particularly The Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan. We made up our own nonsense words, used them in our own poems and performed them to the class.
In Maths we have continued to learn the ‘Bar Model` method of adding and subtracting – we were given two numbers and had to find the missing numbers. We discussed how we could find the inverse after we had identified the missing number. We have also been looking at partitioning our numbers when using the bar model to help us answer our number sentences.
We learned about orienteering and how to use a compass. We had our own maps and had to use our new knowledge of the different compass points to help us to navigate to different points on the map. We went outside and in groups we followed instructions to navigate around the playground using a compass. We each used the compass finding north, south, east and west.
In our PE lesson this week we continued to practice our ball skills. We learned how to throw overarm and underarm accurately to our partners. There were a few rouge balls to begin with but this improved throughout the lesson.
In PSHE, we shared our favourite books and explained to everyone why the books were important to us.
Please remember PE kits. Children will need both indoor and outdoor kits.
Thank you to everyone who brought in chocolate for our hamper. Tickets go on sale on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday.
