Our first full week back has been full of fun.
On Monday we had our first of five squash lessons
On Tuesday we started our poetry unit, listening to readings via the internet and then performing ‘Escape at Bedtime’ and ‘My Shadow’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. We worked in pairs to read ‘Escape before Bedtime’ and then all read our parts together on the carpet, the effect was lovely.
We have looked at rhymes, metaphors and similes, alliteration and onomatopoeia. Ask us to sing the Alliteration or Onomatopoeia song to you.
In the afternoon we discovered how to program a Scratch sprite to make it dance, drum and say something using a speech bubble.
On Wednesday had our first look at multiplying 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.
We know that multiplication is repeated addition so we can use the Base Ten or place value counters to help our written methods …
We had to think very carefully about exchanging and carrying. We are going to keep practising next week and then look at division.
In the afternoon we conducted our first light experiment.
We found out that dark is the absence of light, that light travels in straight lines and that we need to have a good light source to see anything in a dark box. At the end of the lesson we also looked at white light and 🌈. Ned has bought a prism in so we can investigate this further next week.
On Thursday we had our first recorder lesson of the year and we are practising for our class assembly. Ms Taylor was very impressed by how much we had remembered from last term.
On Friday we had our first Tag Rugby lesson. Some of us are experts and play at the weekend, others had their first try at passing a 🏉 rugby ball. It’s not as easy as it looks!
Well done everyone.
