Pattern seeking in science involves children making observations or taking measurements to explore situations where a variable cannot be easily controlled. It often includes and is centred on a ‘big question’ for children to investigate. Our big question in Team JF was do animals teeth change based on the food they eat? To investigate this the children identified carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. From this, they were able to identify the type of teeth eat of them have such as sharp incisors, canines and molars.
After carrying out a sorting activity, the children came to the conclusion that the types of food did impact on the teeth of an animal and could identify the characteristics of these.
Excellent work Team JF you are super scientists!
This week in maths Team have transformed into times table wizards! We have been focusing our learning on the 2,5 and 10 times tables. To begin with, we looked at making groups of 2's, 5's and 10's practically to understand how to count in multiples. From this, we were able to write down the calculation as we understood the meaning of it. As our learning progressed, we moved into using our fingers to help us count and even added in some songs to remind us :).
Team JF you are all AMAZING!
This week in literacy Team JF have blown me away with their outstanding vocabulary! We have been worked incredibly hard to plan our writing of the description of the wolf from Red Riding Hood. The children have started gathering some phenomenal adjectives to use in their writing to describe the wolf's appearance, movements and attitude.
The children have done so well this week and I am very proud of their efforts and attitude to learning this week.
Keep up the amazing work!
