In Art this week we continued working on our collaging skills. We created a rain cloud and used tissue paper to roll up and form into a cloud. For the rain we tried some blow painting. We used some really watery paint and blue through a straw to make the paint run down our page. This created the effect of rain, we loved doing this!
In Maths this week we have been working on subtraction. We challenged our partner with some subtraction number sentences and they had to use beads or multi-link to work out the answer.
Our Autumn Walk
As part of our topic 'Whatever the Weather', we went outside onto the school field to see if we could find Autumn objects. We had a checklist that told us what to look for. We didn't manage to find everything on our checklist but we managed to find brown leaves, orange leaves, berries, pine cones and many other objects.
In English today, we started reading our new book 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We loved the story so much that we decided to go on our very own bear hunt. We searched the bushed in the playground and found lots of bears hiding. We also did some drama where we swam through the water, walking through the mud, walked through the swishy swashy grass and tried to walk in the heavy snow blizzard!
Basketball WOW Day
Today we were visited by a Professional Basketball player, Paul Sturgess. He worked with us to develop our basketball skills. We had a fantastic day meeting Paul and Mark and we loved our PE session. He is even the tallest man in Britain and the World's tallest basketball player. We were very excited!
Today we have been creating holiday brochures. We used all of our skills that we have learnt in English such as labelling a map, creating a list of activities and writing captions for pictures. We chose some very interesting holiday destinations like Australia, Morocco, Ibiza, Wales, London and Portugal.
As our topic this half term is 'Whatever the Weather', we have been researching different seasons and types of weather. We have researched a lot about rainbows, so we created a rainbow collage in Art. We had to be very careful with the tissue paper and roll it into small balls. We had to remember to order of the colours correctly so they looked like real rainbows.
Our Class Promise
During the first day back after the summer holidays, we discussed what were the right and wrong things to do whilst at school. After discussing lots of ideas, we created our very own class promise. Everyone created their face, which is now displayed in the classroom around our promise, to show that we agree and will try our very best to not break our promise.
