Somehow, the class have managed to work their socks off over the course of a half term and we are now approaching our last half term holiday before the final burst of learning as we head into our final half term.
In true form, the Persevering Pioneers have been incredibly busy and spent this week exploring the concept of symmetry. We began by investigating lines of symmetry in regular and irregular polygons. The class used mirrors as an apparatus tool to support them in checking if two sides were the same. Following on from this, we then explored how we could complete figures to make them symmetrical, we started with relatively simple designs with square patterns before moving to line drawings. To really test our understanding of symmetry we then had to complete symmetrical drawings which revealed an unidentified creature that would form part of our alien landscape. The class worked tirelessly and the creatures they uncovered were most certainly an extra-terrestrial species.
Meanwhile, in our Literacy we have been busy writing up our final letter to Mrs Lawson. They will be landing on her desk today! The class were really proud of this piece of writing, so here's hoping that when Mrs Lawson reads them she will be as convinced as myself that we definitely deserve a space celebration at the end of the year!
When we return from the holidays, the class will begin to explore and interpret data in the form of graphs and charts, as well as produce some descriptive writing about the alien landscape from our whole class reader The Jamie Drake Equation.
Happy holidays! I look forward to seeing you all in a week's time!
