This week Team JF started a new unit of learning to explore position and movement. To begin with we discussed new mathematical vocabulary and the directions we move in. From this we focused on identifying our left and right and went outside to give our partner some instructions to follow! From this, we recapped the vocabulary we used the previous day and built upon it including in front, behind, above and below. We carried out a range of practical activities to deepen our understanding of this concept. Firstly, we used objects in the classroom with sentence stems to write about their positions. After that we had a challenge activity to build a tower from cubes using the instructions I gave. Finally, the children had to carry out the same activity again but with a partner to give their own instructions for each other using the extended vocabulary.
This week we also started a new unit of learning. We decided as we had been learning all about seaside habitats in Science, we would write about what we could get up to if we went for a day there! To begin with, we read the book ‘A Day at the Seaside’ and discussed the adventures within that. From this, we unpicked the genre of this text and why these types of stories are written.
Finally, we worked together as a team to think of many different things we would get up to if we went for a visit to the seaside. As the week progressed, we moved into our skill building and looked at speech within writing and expanded noun phrases to describe our characters and a beach setting.
