As always, the class have been busy working away to develop their knowledge and skills across the curriculum.
In Maths, work on place value has continued, with the class exploring numbers up to 1000 and beginning to use their knowledge of number to interpret, record and estimate these numbers on a number line. We have explored missing values and how to calculate these, as well as using information we have to estimate reliably. In the coming weeks we will begin to move away from place value as we head into our learning on addition and subtraction.
In our writing we have been working hard to complete our familiar setting description. The children have shown excellent perseverance for writing and have worked hard to create their own paragraph, encompassing a range of different devices such as fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and a broadening range of language choices. Well done Team, it has been lovely to see your language grow.
In our Geography, we have been creating and labelling our own water cycles in a bag. The class loved making these and they can be found on our window sill as the children are able to see the process of condensation occuring. We have moved on to exploring mountains this week. The children worked hard to use atlas' to find mountain ranges and record their location on a map of Europe. We also spent some time answering some enquiry question. Did you know - the oldest mountain in the world is approximately 3.2billion years old. We also discovered the tallest mountain in the world was Mount Everest and it takes roughly 9 weeks to climb.
In our Science, this week we conducted our practical investigation into reflective surfaces that we planned together as a class last week. The children loved using the torch to see which material was most reflective. This really helped the children with designing their own reflective book bag for the winter months!
In our foundation subjects, we have been getting to grips with our French. The class have so far learnt basic greetings, how to say if they are well or not and to ask and introduce themselves by name. In music, we have been working on our half termly song "Let your Spirit Fly". The class have been fantastic at listening and appraising and have shown real enthusiasm for using the glockenspiel when finding the pulse.
