In our English learning, we have been looking at diaries and recounts. We wrote our own recount of our trip to Hyde Hall and are now working hard on recreating the diary of Samuel Pepys!
We also celebrated World Book Day earlier this term - look at our super costumes!
In maths, we are working on shape. We are looking at 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We are also continuing to work hard on our arithmetic skills and improving our adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.
In our science learning this half term, we are looking at plants. We have planted our own seeds and bulbs and have looked at the life cycle of plants. We are trying our own experiments to find out what plants need to survive. Last week we took a trip to Hyde Hall to see what else we could learn!
Our History topic this half term is all about The Great Fire of London. We have enjoyed learning about when in history the fire happened and retelling the story. We have also enjoyed learning about what life was like in 1666 and how different it was to now!
We had a Great Fire of London Day where we (under Mr Emmet’s supervision!}) recreated the fire to show how it spread so quickly. We also made our own fire collage pictures!
In English we have been looking at stories from other cultures. We read The Leopard's Drum and have been looking at some Tinga Tinga Tales. Soon, we will be writing our own!
In Maths we are learning about multiplication and division. We are working hard to learn our times tables but for now, we are drawing our equal groups and counting in groups to help!
In Science we are learning about living things and their habitats.
We went on a minibeast hunt to look at microhabitats and find out what creatures lived there. We got a little bit muddy but had lots of fun!
Our Geography topic for this half term is all about Kenya. We have been learning about Kenyan culture and looked at the Maasai tribe and compared their culture to our own. We then made some of our own Kenyan jewellery!
We have also been working hard to learn the countries and continents. We used these songs to help!
