This week we have been weighing objects and reading scales. We worked together to solve mass problems using vocabulary like heaviest, lightest, balanced.
Maybe you could use your scales at home to weigh some small objects.
In literacy we had a go at writing our own stories. We tried hard to join our handwriting and spell the common exception words. The grown ups were all very impressed!
In topic we have been talking about our feelings and what makes us feel happy and sad. We talked about how we feel inside when we are happy or sad. It was lovely to hear all about our happy feelings, my favourite was "I feel happy when mummy and daddy tuck me in bed at night and read a story."
Group 1 had their final forest school session yesterday. Mrs Richardson is very pleased with the learning that has taken place and she can't wait to take them back to the forest in Year 2. Group 2 will be having forest schools sessions when we return after Easter.
We hope everyone has a lovely Easter and we will see you in two weeks time!
This week in Literacy we have been retelling the story of ‘Dinosaurs Love Underpants.’ We had to think carefully about the different parts of the story - beginning, middle and end.
We have also been trying to join our handwriting! We are getting much better.
In Numeracy we have been finding the answers to missing number problems. See if you can do these at home.
5 + £ = 12
6 + £ = 20
12 - £ = 3
7 = £ - 9
In Topic we have had fun creating collage environments for dinosaurs. We scrunched up different coloured tissue paper to do this.
We have also enjoyed playing maths games, such as ‘Hit the Button’ on the Topmarks website.
Maybe you could play these games at home.
This week we were visited by Alex from Bolton Museum. He talked to us about dinosaurs and we pretended to be paleontologists and took part in a dinosaur dig. We came across teeth, claws and spines. It was amazing to see the size of the teeth and claws. We also learned about fossils and we sang a song naming lots of different dinosaurs.
