Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand


Class Blog Week Ending 30.09.2022

We named some things or places that are dark to help us to understand that darkness is the absence of light. We need light to see things. We have also been learning how to count up to 10 in Spanish as part of International Week and we learnt some Spanish greetings too. Elliot's mum comes from Spain and she told us about Spanish food and we made fans. We used our knowledge of place value to compare and to order 3-digit  numbers and to place them on a number line to 1000. We used a map of the UK to locate and name some major rivers of the UK. Last Friday,  we started recording who is a 5 star reader and the raffle; both of which we look forward to! Mrs Boden is reading the second Winklesea book at the end of each day. We look forward to that too!

We have been busy growing our brains this week! We have used 'Flotsam' to practise our inference skills. We used the clues in the book to describe the main character. We have thought about the journey of a river and found out that a river has three courses and that it changes as it flows to the sea. We have learnt about the differences between digital and non-digital devices. In maths, we have talked about place value and made 2-digit numbers with the diennes. Mrs Boden gets cross when we drop the diennes on the floor! Today, we counted in hundreds and learnt that 10 tens are the same as one hundred. We have learnt lots of new words to do with light, such as transparent, translucent, and opaque. We learnt that the moon is a reflector and it shines at night because is it reflecting light from the sun; it does not make it own light. In RE, we have been learning about Christians and what happens in a church during the week as well as on Sundays. Last week, we celebrated the Queen's life by learning about her and watching a video from the 2012 Olympics when she parachuted out of a plane!
