with Miss Sarris
This week in science we have been learning about our senses. We did a senses investigation and recorded what we could see/smell/hear/taste/touch.
In Geography we have been learning where food comes from. We looked at packaging and then labelled the country of produce on a world map.
In Maths we have been exploring money. We have been learning to recognise, order and sort coins and notes and match them to prices as well as combining coins to make a particular value and working out equivalent ways to make a value. We will move on to adding coins and finding change.
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term break. This half term our Topic is ‘Party Planners – Can party food be healthy’. In Topic we will be planning a healthy, friendship party and exploring where food comes from. In science we will be looking at our bodies and how to keep them healthy. In Maths we will be learning about money and shape.
This is the text we will base our learning around in literacy:
In Science we have been learning about the uses and properties of Everyday Materials. We are going to make Little Red Riding Hood a new cape. We did a science experiment to find out which materials are waterproof and non waterproof. We found that plactic was the best material, so in DT we each created a cape!
We baked a cake for Little Red Riding Hood’s Granma and discussed how the materials changed. In Literacy we wrote recipes and instructions.
In Maths we have been learning a variety of methods to make number bonds and add numbers!
This week in Topic we have been developing our map making skills. We worked in pairs to create an Ariel view map of the small playground. We used symbols and a key.
In Literacy we are learning about Traditional Tales.
PE is on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has the correct kit and appropriate footwear. I will take learning logs in on Thursdays and return them on Friday. Please ensure your child brings in their book bag everyday!
