We have made a great start to our topic of 'Turn on the Lights!'. So far we have read two stories about the dark: 'Orion and the Dark' and 'The Dark'. They both include characters who are scared of the dark to begin with, but find ways of overcoming their fear. We have thought about our own opinions of the dark and discussed ways to feel less scared or worried about it. We have used the two books to practise writing letters and to predict what might happen next. We were also lucky enough to listen to an assembly about 'Threats to Wildlife' by Be Free. It taught us many amazing facts about elephants, tigers and orcas and we were able to produce some fascinating pieces of factual writing.
In Maths we have finished our learning on shape. We have learnt about 2D and 3D shape and their properties, as well as lines of symmetry, sorting shapes and patterns with shape. It would be great to practise making either a repeating pattern or a symmetrical pattern with shapes at home!
We will be going back to multiplication and division next so any revisiting of the 2s, 5s and 10s would be beneficial.
In Science we have been learning about life cycles. We began by discussing the human life cycle and then moved onto creating a life cycle for either a ladybird, a sea turtle or a penguin.
We also completed some Maths learning on the computers this week. We each had a go at a quiz on sorting 3D shapes on PurpleMash
