We have had a fantastic couple of weeks learning all about the dark and reading and comparing story books on the topic. Lots of brilliant Home Learning has also been coming in recently. Remember these are collected in on a Monday and given back throughout the week.
In Literacy we have been reading 'Orion and the Dark', 'The Dark' and 'Sulwe'. They are all similar because they all have a character called 'The Dark'. This week we thought about how we would describe each character, which then helped us compare them to see how similar or different they are. Next week we will continue reading 'Sulwe', a class favourite due to the beautiful illustrations and important message.
In Maths we have been investigating 2D and 3D shape. Some of us have even had a go at making our own 3D shapes at home out of cocktail sticks and marshmallows! We have been counting the number of vertices and sides on 2D shapes, and the number of faces, edges and vertices on 3D shape. Any practise of remembering the names would be great!
To help our topic of 'Turn on the Lights', we have been finding out about Thomas Edison and his invention of the electric lightbulb in History. We created our own fact files and thought about what life would be like without them. We have also been making shadow puppets in D&T, making sure they all had at least one moving part and testing them out with torches.
