Our Autumn Term Journey
Our work this term was based on the book 'At the Beach'. Children have been practising writing postcards to each other as well as imitating, innovating and inventing their own adventure stories. We have also used different materials to collage sea creatures and described human and physical features of beaches in the UK. In Art, children have used oil pastels and pencil to create different effects.
Maths and ICT
The children have been learning about place value, looking at addition and subtraction. There is a big focus on learning our times tables and within ICT we are using Times Tables Rockstars, Mathletics and Purple Mash as well as learning to create a biography on our class author Dick-King Smith.
Don't forget to continue practising times tables at home!
During European Day of Languages we studied Italy, learnt some Italian phrases, enjoyed making pizzas as well as applying our knowledge of maths; measuring, weighing and using proportion.
Within science we have been learning about the lifecycle of plants and had the opportunity to hot seat Joel and asked questions such as why are plants green, how is water transported in plants and why do flowers produce nectar.
We planted parsley, thyme, marjoram, chives and basil.
