Have a look below to see what we have been up to!
In maths, we have been starting our introduction to multiplication. We started off by writing repeated addition number sentences, and today we all used the ‘X’ sign for the first time!
In literacy, we have been learning poems about Pirates – we learnt one by heart and performed it to the class! We then read a book called ‘Molly Rogers – Pirate Girl’. We imagined what life would have been like for Molly, being captured by nasty pirates, then we wrote diary entries for our big writes!
A visit from Sydney
Mrs Wooller came in with her dog, Sydney! She taught us about dog safety, and how to treat animals well. We learnt what do do if we see a dog we want to stroke when we are out in public – and we even got to cuddle Sydney! Thank you Mrs Wooller and Sydney!
R.E. – making candles
We have been designing our own Paschal candles. We talked about what needs to be put on the candle: the cross, the year, the 5 spots with incense and the Alpha and Omega. Then, we made our own 3D versions!
We have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the events from Bonfire Night in literacy. We created freeze frames for each part of the story to show our understanding.
Then, we did a ‘conscience alley’ to decide whether Guy Fawkes did the right or the wrong thing. We tried to persuade each other to come to our sides.
