# Fantastic Maths

In maths we looked at the 3-D shapes on Bottlenose Bay harbour and discussed their properties.  After this we made 3-D shapes out of straws.  It was great fun.

Word of the Day was ‘forlorn’ and here are some of our sentences.

# The amazing day of work

In the morning, we did guided reading but it was different because we did it in the library.  We looked at atlases and other books that are related to our geography topic and when we found an interesting fact we had to write it down for our display.

In mathematics we used Harry and the Jaggedy Daggers to learn about 3-D shapes and we played a game where we had to hide our shape from our partner and they asked questions about the shape to see if they could guess what it was.  After this we played the post-it note game to guess the 3-D shape which was great fun but very hard to not give the answer away!

In the afternoon we started hockey in P.E. and Mrs Johanson was extremely impressed with our ball control skills so we started passing the ball to each other and we’ll continue with this next week.

Word of the Day was ‘disobedient’ and here are some of our sentences.

# Welcome to Bottlenose Bay

This morning we returned to school and things were a bit different.  We were collected from the playground and Mrs Johanson read Harry and the Jaggedy Dagger to us before we came into Cherry Class, sorry, Bottlenose Bay!  Over Easter our classroom has been transformed and it looks brilliant.

We spent some time exploring our new classroom and all of the fantastic props that have been made by our parents.

We even got to use the compass in our maths lesson when we had to describe directions on the map of Bottlenose Bay.  We had to make sure our directions were accurate and we realised that there is often more than one way to get somewhere.  We are becoming experts at using the language of direction and learnt about the 8 points on a compass.

In the afternoon we started putting our class tune for recorders together and in topic we learnt about the continents of the world.  We had to find and locate these on a world map and some of us even labelled the different oceans in the world.  A great first day back and tomorrow we’ll be looking at Harry in more detail in our English lesson.

# Handball and Easter Cards

Yesterday we took part in our inter-house handball competition with Year 4.  Each house played a 6 minute game of handball against each other and it was lots of fun.   In the afternoon we had our last swimming lesson and we were all very quiet when we returned to school.  Thank you to Mrs Hayat for treating us to a Capri Sun and biscuits!

After handball we made some Easter cards for our families.  They look great and we enjoyed using water colours for our background.

# Never Eat Shredded Wheat

This morning in maths we learnt about angles as a turn.  We know that there are 4 quarter turns on a four point compass and we were quite good at describing turns using a compass.  After this we tried it with a clock which was a bit trickier but we will keep practicing.
