Spring Term Science
We have started looking at materials and the properties of common materials in Science. We have found objects made of metal, plastic, glass, wood (and paper) and fabric. We learned a new word - rigid - as the opposite of bendy. Please help your children at home identify the material(s) that objects are made from, and talk about their properties - hard, soft, smooth, rough, bendy, rigid, waterproof, absorbent, transparent (or see through) and so on. Thank you.
Here are some of the children's comments about, 'The boy who climbed into the moon':
Dylan G enjoyed the part when they were in the taxi driving around.
Emilia liked the part when Fortuna was fired from the cannon into the moon.
Kenzie really liked the way the stage changed and the buildings became the moon.
Rihanna loved the music being played on the accordian and the hang drum.
Give your children some help at home with their maths. Oct 2016
We have been learning the days of the week and the words yesterday and tomorrow linked to the order of the days. We are still working hard on writing the numbers from 0 to 20 - trying to get them the correct way round and in the correct order. You can use the word doc found at the bottom of this page to help them practise writing the numbers at home.
We are also working on number bonds to 5 and 10 - and have been using counters to show the adding of two numbers. We are learning to write number sentences ( 3 + 7 = 10 ). Look at the recent work below using counters and Numicon. We have been comparing using the words 'more' and 'less' as you will see below.
We had a great time at the park exploring the different play equipment and looking at the different materials used to make them.
