What a week! It has been a wonderful week in Oak class. We have explored new maths units, investigated how toasters really work and had a dive into the world of books.
Can you dig through planet earth? We discovered why this is not possible by exploring the layers that build our planet. By making our own small earth, we found that there are four main layers that make up the inside of our blue planet. Next week we will investigate how fold mountains are made and create pop-up books in our Geography books, using paper to construct a working model of a fold mountain being created!
In guided reading we will be reading the text, The Pebble in my Pocket. This text will help us explore descriptive language and how the author really engages the reader with their vocabulary choices.
We will also continue our measurement unit, we are learning to measure in cm and mm and convert between the two. Our tables really help with this! The children are doing well with their tables, TTRS is a great tool so please continue with this at home!
On Wednesday, we dressed up as our favourite characters from our favourite books, what a wonderful day we had! The children looked incredible, thank you for your hard work with this. We enjoyed exploring our characters by writing character profiles and designing book covers for our favourite texts!
Today we had fun in Woodland school! We used nature to build our own portraits. Using twigs, moss, leaves and anything else we could find to create our faces!
