Weekly Review – In D.T. we planned the design of the car that we will make next week. The children chose from a range of resources e.g. boxes cardboard tubes, straws, dowel etc. and then drew a diagram of their design. In Science we looked at the sense of sound and the children went on a sound walk around the school. We used clipboards and tally charts to note down the different things we heard. In Geography we also went on a learning walk around the school and used the iPads to take photos of examples of human and physical features in our playgrounds.
English - In English, we looked at aliens. The children made their own alien, named it, wrote about his/her character and then created a poem about their aliens through shared writing. It was a lot of fun! In Phonics our new phoneme was the split digraph i-e (as in the words nice and smile).
Maths - In Maths we have been doing Maths Meetings daily. These cover a range of objectives and we have been focusing on subitising and number bonds to 10 and 20 as well as place value for one and two digit numbers.
PSHE - This week’s lesson was about healthy bodies and like last week we focused on personal hygiene routines. We looked in detail about how to brush your teeth.
Vocabulary – Words introduced this week include: hygiene, design, feature, alien and character.
