with Mrs King
Welcome to the Spring!
Jennings have been enjoying learning stories with magic in them! We have looked at The Magic Bed and The Magic Paintbrush. We have enjoyed drama, story-maps, descriptions with ambitious adjectives and writing our own versions of stories!
Our class novel at the moment is ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S.Lewis. The children are enjoying exploring the magical and mysterious world of Narnia in this classic novel.
In maths, we have looked at addition and subtraction of 2 and 3 digit numbers. We have used place value equipment (hundreds, tens and ones) to help us. We have used a range of methods – mentally, number line, column, drawing pictures… We have solved and made up our own word problems including ourselves and friends in them. We have also been looking at 3D shape and created riddles for mystery shapes…
Our Topic is about the history of cars and other means of transport. We have looked at and compared cars through time, from when they were first invented and are beginning to answer some of our own questions by doing research. Our work on wheels is helping us with our science investigations into what materials would make good wheels and good roads?
Safer Internet Day is 5th February and the children have thought about many important ways to use the internet safely and have fun too!
