It may have been a shorter week, but we have been just as busy!
This week in Maths, we started our multiplication and division learning. We practised our counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using the video below, if you ask really nicely the children might be able to show you there amazing counting at home (please be aware of adverts before the video on YouTube, we have a filtering system at school, but you might not have the same on your home computer!).
As the sun was shining, we made the most of it and went outside to chalk counting in 10s numberlines on the playground. We then practised hopping up and down them chanting!
We had a lovely time with Paul creating perfect habitats for Winston the woodlouse, thinking about what he might need for food and safety. We even found a female woodlouse which was carrying eggs, look out for baby woodlice soon!
Next week in our outdoor learning session, we will be creating our own bug hotel for school. We have been liaising with Nicky Scott and Proper Job to help us with resources, but if you have any of the below you could donate, we would be very grateful.
In Science, we have started learning about plants and have planted French beans. We are hoping that by watering them regularly and giving them enough sunshine, that at half term we will be able to bring home a healthy bean plant that might produce beans for us to enjoy in the summer. Here are some photos of us planting them:
Next weeks, we will be learning...
- Who the explorer Bessie Coleman was and what she did
- We will be thinking about healthy eating and what makes a good packed lunch
- Working on making equal groups and showing multiplication questions using arrays
- Making our bug hotel
and lots of other exciting things.
I hope that this weather sticks around (and maybe rain at night!). Have a lovely weekend!
