This week in maths Team JF have continued learning about shape. We moved on from 2d shapes and into exploring 3d shapes! We started the week by handling, identifying and learning the names of these new shapes. From this we moved into the numbers of vertices and faces each shape has. The children have worked incredibly hard this week to master this skill and have made excellent progress in their learning!
Next week we will move onto time!
In literacy this week we have started our new unit of learning! This is linked with our science topic of animals and plants at the seaside. We were so excited and eager to find out more about this topic we decided to write our very own non fiction pieces to inform ourselves and others about life in this place. To begin with we unpicked the features of non fiction pieces and what we needed to include in our own writing. From this we recapped some of the grammatical skills required to make ours fantastic! Next week we will plan our informative pieces and be ready to write!
This week Team JF started a new unit of learning- shape. To begin with we looked at a variety of 2d shapes and discussed what they look like and their names. Once we were familiar with these we were able to identify some properties. For this, we had to look really carefully at what made them that shape. Team JF were absolutely amazing at this and focused on the number of sides each shape had and the number of vertices. As our learning continued, we began sorting shapes in a variety of ways.
As always, Team JF have worked their socks off and amazed me with their knowledge! After the holidays we will move into 3d shapes.
Over the past couple of weeks Team JF have continued writing their very own stories based on our class book 'Handa's surprise'. This week the children wrote their first drafts including an introduction, problem, solution and ending. They have also worked incredibly hard to include a variety of skills into their pieces such as contractions, prefixes and expanded noun phrases. I am so proud of the children's achievements over the past couple of weeks and they are becoming such talented writers!
Finally, I hope you all have an amazing Easter break!
