This afternoon Cherry Class looked at healthy eating and how important a healthy balanced diet is. We learnt about different food groups and categorised foods into the five food groups of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, dairy and fruit and vegetables.
We completed a topic grid for the animals including humans element of our topic. We have lots of interesting questions that we would like to answer which include;
We had a brilliant time this afternoon on our whole school trip to the Wyvern Theatre to watch Gangsta Granny. We all thought it was very funny when Ben’s mum and dad sat next to Mrs Johanson but the best bit was getting to dance at the end of the show!
This morning we learnt three more words from Year 3 and 4 word list. They are: appear, reappear and disappear. We did rainbow writing for our activity and then in our spelling lessons we looked at different sounds/ spelling rules.
This afternoon we did art linked to harvest. We painted blue skies because that is what Cherry Class will be doing for Harvest service this Friday.
After that we learnt a G in recorders and Mrs Taylor is amazed that we can play Hot Cross Buns so well this early in the year!
Today we have worked really hard in English identifying some key features of information texts and then ‘boxing up’ our Talk 4 Writing text. This will help us to plan and write our own engaging information texts which we will start next week. We spent some time looking at and writing some topic sentences as well.
This afternoon some of us went to Warminster School to take part in their primary cross country festival. It was lots of fun and we looked very smart in our school kit.
The rest of us had an equally fun afternoon and made scientific predictions for a comparative experiment that we will carry out next week…
This week has been so busy we’ve hardly had time to blog! We are still working hard on our Talk 4 Writing and have finished learning our information text and writing our text maps. These will be seesawed home tomorrow!
In maths we are becoming more confident everyday with our mental addition and subtraction. Some of us have even shown our work to Mrs Brewis and Mrs Chapman while Mrs Johanson has been giving out success stamps left, right and centre.
On Tuesday we went to the woods and used digital cameras to photograph different plants so we can identify their different parts. We spent some time looking at the natural materials and thinking about how we could use them in everyday life – just like Wesley did in Weslandia!
This morning we started to orally retell an information text about Weslandia to help us learn the language patterns and internalise the vocabulary for writing our own. It was lots of fun and we are looking forward to Seesawing our finished text maps tomorrow.
This afternoon was very exciting because we wore our Judo kits for the first time and learnt how to tie our belts. Mrs Johanson will Seesaw an instruction video of this so we can practise. We learnt a new throw and had two new Judo words: uki and tori.
Our word of the week is ‘foliage’ which is a noun and this means lots of leaves. We wrote sentences using this word. Later in English we recapped using inverted commas for speech and used Kung Fu punctuation to help us remember where the inverted commas should go.
In maths we were learning how to mentally add 1-digit numbers to 3-digit numbers. This sounded easy but it got a bit tricky when the 1s made more than 10. For example 8 + 5 = 13 so we had to remember to change the 10s digit when we did 238 + 5.
