Welcome to Daisy Class!
What a busy couple of weeks we have had! We are thoroughly enjoying looking at and discussing the stories of Roald Dahl. We have been particularly focusing on The BFG and the children have written some very detailed descriptions of some of the characters from the book. We have also had a great time making our own dream jar pictures and writing about them.
In maths we have continued to learn to tell the time to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We have also been working on arithmetic including addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, halving, quartering and missing number problems.
In science we have looked the progress of our bread investigation. We found that the tin foil was the best wrapping material as the bread did not go mouldy. The bread in the plastic bag went mouldy and the bread in the paper bag went very hard, as did the piece of bread that was left uncovered. We are hoping to have another exciting investigation to get stuck in to next week.
In art we followed a Quentin Blake tutorial to draw our own Willy Wonkas. Everybody did a great job and clearly had a real sense of achievement as they could see that their drawings looked like Quentin Blake's.
Dolly was given the Star Award last week and Savannah and Alder have been awarded it this week! Well done! Daisy has returned from a great weekend with Zaina and has now gone home with Olivia L.
