Last week, we took full advantage of our wonderful forest school area and went hunting for all things Stone Age. We were able to find many different materials to use in our DT lesson.
Today, our maths became competitive. We started by playing Times Tables Bingo which saw the children using their mental maths skills and the winner was.....
We then had to compete in teams, finding and matching the multiplication sentence to the correct product. The children were fantastic and used their mathematical skills brilliantly.
Every Wednesday, 3S take PE outside and participate in various games whilst learning new skills. We have Chris from Man City teach us the fundamentals and keep our bodies fit and healthy.
This week, we had a great session and played a mini tournament that focused on throwing, catching and defending. Everyone joined in and showed great team work all while laughing and smiling!
As we are coming to the end of our ages topic, we have started to consolidate our new found knowledge and created a Stone Age scene. We went to our Forest School area and looked for different materials we could use in our boxes, such as sticks, pebbles and leaves. As a group, children then designed and created various items, such as people, tents, fires and streams. It was great to see the children working so well together, using their imaginations and problem solving skills to make the Stone Age come to life.
Our English has been fantastic recently and we have some extremely persuasive children in the class. We have been focusing on paired writing tasks, using each others ideas to create a great piece of persuasive writing.
We have used various statements from, 'Children should eat porridge everyday for breakfast' to 'Mr Wheeldon should give us an extra play time' and my favourite, 'Why we should keep the dragon in our garden'. The children are able to use persuasive openers, emotive language, rhetorical questions, conjunctions and facts and opinions to write some awesome persuasive pieces of writing.
In Science this term, we are looking at Light & Dark. We completed a quick activity based on light sources, identifying objects that produce light and those that do not. There were a few tricky ones in the pile, such as the moon!
We are going to be investigating reflective surfaces, shadows as well as creating our own light boxes!
We have been reading ‘Calligams’ this week in English. Can you remember what one is? What is the most important feature?
Aaliyah has used what she is learning in our 'Walking with Dinosaurs' topic and has created an amazing piece of dinosaur artwork at home. Luckily, Aaliyah was able to show 3S her creation and we were all blown away! Fantastic job Aaliyah : )
