Monday 12th April - Friday 16th April
As always it has been a very busy week with lots of learning taking place! We have kick-started the half term by starting a new book in English, "Oliver and the Seawigs"; began our journey into fractions by recapping what a 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 is and how we can find these of different wholes; travelled right the way back in time to the prehistoric era of the Stone Age; began looking at magnets in Science and looking at the skills that we need to help us become clear communicators as part of our Values and attitudes curriculum. We also spent some time in our wellbeing wood creating our own "roaming islands" inspired by those in our new English book and began the week by delving into the history or Afternoon Tea for our new DT project for the half term, where we have been tasked with designing, making and evaluating an Afternoon Tea for children as a celebration (which we will enjoy at the end of this half term ).
Have a little look at a snippet of our learning this week
As part of our time travel back to the prehistoric era, we took some time to look at some of the prominent events/ eras that are part of history. In our Co-op teams we had to see if we could put different events in chronological order spanning right the way through from the Dinosaur era to modern day. Have a little look at us in action
Throughout the week we have been reading our new class text "Oliver and the Seawigs" and have been building up to, and writing a diary entry in role as Oliver Crisp. We all tried extremely hard with our writing, and we were very proud of ourselves! Here's just a little snippet of what we produced.
Wow! What a fabulous effort we all put in to our home learning challenges over the Easter break! From masks being made, pyramids being built, food being made and information posters and powerpoints - they were fabulous! This is what we created!
