Singing, Sports and Stones made of Straw
Date: 20th Sep 2019 @ 3:37pm
Yet again, we have been incredibly busy this week (despite the illness going about!). In English we have begun work on our next piece of writing - a retelling of the three little pigs. We will be looking at what these traditional tales usually include next week as we think about planning our own version.
In Maths, we have started counting in 2s and 5s (Year 2). This we found tricky, so we will continue with this next week. Year 3s have been using their place value knowledge to add or take away 10 or 100.
For Science, we learnt three new big science words (!) - sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic - as we thought about how best to group rocks. We used this video from the BBC to help us:
In topic, we looked at the lifestyle of people in the stone age, thinking about homes, tools and clothes. Next week, we will look at Stone Age Food.
Talking of food - if you were able to make it to Thursday's harvest festival then you will know how wonderful our singing and poetry reading was. Well done Class 2!
Of course, Friday was our Cluster Sports day and I was very proud of the way all the children took part and worked alongside the children from Adderley and Morton Say.
Finally, take a look at our gallery of photos from this week's Forest School. Mrs Booth had us making Stonehenge out of bales of hay - thinking like stone age people to see how to move them (big sticks and ropes were very useful!).
