What a busy week we have had! Here's a snapshot of some of the things our children have been learning this week.
For Numeracy, the children have been looking at place value and reasoning to solve number problems. We also looked at comparing metric and imperial measures for capacity. In Science, the children investigated how forces are measured and how these change on different surfaces. The children started to plan their stories set on an Island in Literacy.
Our Topic for this term will be Farming. Over the holidays, the children have made some amazing models of cows. Some have researched and written about cows as well as how the process works for cows producing milk.
In Numeracy, the children have been working on roman numerals and learnt how to reason using roman numerals. For Literacy, the children wrote a piece of writing using descriptive language on the trees they have researched earlier in the week. Religious Education - the children researched and discussed how the bible teaches people how to treat each other. Mrs Nicholls was very proud of our children as they all persevered using the bible to find the information they were looking for.
In Science this week the children have been looking at the different classifications of trees. They started off by investigating and identifying what type of trees we have on our school field. They collated information about the different structures of the trees by measuring the girth, looking at how the branches spread out, the shape of the leaves, and took pictures of their findings. How could you measure the height of the tree? Is the bark of one tree the same as another? Why are trees so different? The investigations continue...
