This morning we were learning how to read analogue time. We had to read some clock faces and write down the time (we are confident with this) and after this we had to read a time and draw it on the clock face, which was much trickier.
In topic we learnt about the history of LEGO and we recorded key events on a timeline. We should be able to tell you lots about this including the meaning of LEGO in Latin. At the end of the day we had great fun playing with our LEGO.
This morning we did some drama in English. We were acting out a Sea Shanty called ‘Blow the Man Down’. Our performances became more dramatic each time and we need to keep practising fitting all the words into the fast paced melody.
In recorders we worked in pairs to think of more sequences of notes to add into our class tune. Hopefully we’ll get to play them and choose which ones we would like to add in next week.
This afternoon we played some games of rounders and had lots of fun. We were good at quickly learning the rules and our batting skills are quite impressive! Next week we’ll be practising bowling before we play some more games (photos will follow once I’ve resolved the technical hitch).
This morning we’ve been continuing building our dioramas of Harry’s house. We’ve used the glue gun, paint and lots of other artistic materials and it’s been lots of fun.
In other news, we’ve been working really hard on writing a setting description of a storm on Bottlenose Bay and we’re trying very hard to master calculating fractions of amounts.
