Hope you all had a lovely half term! The children have certainly all come back refreshed and eager to learn.
As part of our PHSE unit the children designed their own garden gadget. The children had to work in groups to design and annotate the gadget. They had to also look at target audience, unique selling point and price. We then had a 'Dragons Den' style presentation where the groups had to come and pitch their gadget.
We have started a new non fiction topic in Literacy called 'The Incredible Sport' We have looked at Disc Golf and the children all participated in a fun quiz to see how much they could remember. In the upcoming weeks we will be looking at bossaball and joggling.
In Maths this week we have been looking at decimals. The children have been comparing and ordering decimals and had a go at rounding them to the nearest whole number. Next week, we begin to look at adding amounts of money.
Our new science topic is 'sound' and the children enjoyed playing sound bingo. They had to listen very carefully to various sound clips and then tick them off on their bingo grids when they heard them. The children also had a go at exploring different sound stations around the classroom. They had lots of objects to explore and they had to think about how the sound was being made.
Our Class Mass takes place this Friday (26th February). We would love it if you could join us.
