Well done to the children who have been awarded their 50 reading cards this week! You are showing a true dedication to learning - amazing! You should be super proud!
.This week we have celebrated Anti-Bullying week.
We kicked off the week wearing our odd socks... we had all sorts of colours and patterns brightening up the classroom! We also watched the virtual assembly by Andy and the Odd Socks from the Anti-Bullying Alliance. It was great!
We have designed our own 'odd sock paper chain' that we have linked together all down the corridor so all of our classes are connected and united against bullying.
In our PSHE lesson, we have focused on 'kindness' and how we can make the world a kinder place.
First we read the book 'Kind' by Alison Green and Axel Scheffler.
We discussed what kind means and how we can ensure we are kind to one and other.
We then designed our own 'Kind Hands' with five ways we can ensure kindness starts with us.
Have a look at our lovely work below.
To celebrate maths week, we had a go at some challenges from the maths website 'NRich'. We focused on addition and subtraction as this is our current unit in maths.
The first challenge we had a go at was 'Sort It Out' where we had to work out the answers to the addition and subtraction questions and then organised them into piles. We were free to choose our own way of organising them as long as we could use our reasoning sentence stems to explain.
The second challenge we had a go at solving was 'Dominoes'. We have to create a window square with each side adding up to the same value. This challenge was very frustrating but we gave it a good go and persevered. Some people even managed to solve the challenge!
In science, we have been investigating reflective surfaces.
We have learnt what makes a good reflective surface and how mirrors work.
We used a mirror to look at the reflection of the wiggly line on the floor whilst trying to walk along it from one end to the other. This was really tricky!
This week we have been focusing on the text 'Where the Poppies Now Grow' to support our learning about Remembrance Day.
We read the text together and focused on reading aloud with intonation, volume, tone and expression. We then used the text to create some wonderful artwork including using our sketching and line making skills to draw poppies and then our brush control skills to use watercolour paints to add colour.
We also made 3D poppies using card.
