We read our school story. We thought it was strange at first because it didn't make a lot of sense. Then we read it again. And again. And again. The more we read it, the better we were able to understand it.
We have been learning all about magnets this half term. Yesterday, we were finding out about the two poles on a magnet.
Try to learn this song. It will help you remember!
Today, an orchestra visited school from Manchester University. They told us a little bit about each of the instruments and explained how instruments are grouped in an orchestra. We found out that there were brass, wood wind, percussion and string instruments. Their theme was Under the Sea and they played lots of music, such as the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean. We had to listen to one piece of music and try to draw what we imagined happening. Someone even got to have a go at conducting. It was a lovely treat!
In maths, over the last couple of weeks, we have been learning to tell the time.
Here we are learning the difference between am and pm times. Can you guess what the different coloured counters represent?
We have been busy learning about writing diaries over the past two weeks. Yesterday we wrote a diary and we imagined that we were Victorian chimney sweeps.
Today we edited our partner's work.
Our writing is so good we are going to put it on the wall!
It was a bit wet outside yesterday, when we normally do our Mile a Day run. We weren't going to be still, though! Here we are dancing to our favourite Go Noodle songs! We look pretty funny!
Have a go at home....just hit the button and work on those moves!
Julia brought some raw cotton for us to look at. She said it came from plants and it was what the Victorians worked on in the mills. They would spin the cotton with huge machines.
Today we had a very tricky puzzle. We had to work out the number on Lilly's card. Lilly gave us some clues. She said her number was between 40 and 50. She also said that if she divided her number by 3, she would have one left over, and if she divided by 4, she would also have 1 left over. We used our counters to help us solve this.
Do you know what Lilly's number is?
I think all of the running for our mile-a-day initiative has tired 3W out this week. We had a quiet, calm Golden Time. What a lovely end to the week.
it was wonderful to see so many parents this morning. We all had lots of fun making Christmas cards, ornaments, doing puzzles , colouring and even minecraft building. The children looked wonderful in their party clothes; we even had some parents infestive hats and jumpers.
Here are the photographs of the morning.
