Week Ending: 16.03.18

This week in maths we have been looking at weight. We started the looking discussing all the differernt things we knew about weight already. We compared the weights of different things using the key words heavier and lighter. We used balancing scales to test different objects around the classroom. We know that if she scales go down it is heavier and if the scales go up its lighter. We finished the week by doing PUMA testing for maths, we are such superstars, we did fantastically!


In English this week we have been reading the pig in the pond. We started the week by simply looking at the front cover and the title of the story. We talked about how important the title of the story is and what it tells us. We made predications about what we thought the story would be about. We read the story as a class as discussed any new words we weren’t sure of and made a class dictionary. We had our own version of the text and we found all of the adjectives, verbs and nouns. Later in the week we were reading detectives and answered different questions about the story and even wrote a book review.


In PE this week we continued gymnastics and had a go at different ways to travel. We loved pencil rolls and teddy bear rolls and were very good and telling Miss Beard how to keep safe when travelling around the hall.


In science this week we have been looking at different plants. We labelled the different parts of the plant and talked about the different jobs that each part does.


In art this week we looked at the artist Warren Kimble. We looked at his different farm animals and had a go at painting our own versions of his pieces of art.
