This term the class will be studying a significant author and writing a biography about them. We have decided to focus on the life and work of Enid Blyton and this week the children have had a chance to look at some of her many books. Using their ICT skills and through research, the class have gathered key information about her life and work and used this to create a bio cube.
Our focus in numeracy this week has been idenitfying and classifying different types of angles. We have looked at: acute angles, right angles, obtuse angles, straight lines, reflex angles and full turns. Each pupil is able to not only idenitfy and classify each of these types of angles but they can also describe them in detail, referring to their measurement in degrees. The class completed a variety of activites, one of which was a particular favourite. With the good fortune of the wonderful weather we have had we decided to venture outside of the classroom to investigate angles in our environment. Not only were they required to find examples of all of the different types of angles we have been looking at, they also had to use their knowledge to estimate their measurement. We looked at examples of both natural and man-made objects and recorded our findings accurately.
