To conclude our learning about Greta Thunberg the children made placards and had a mini Climate Change Protest on the playground. The children planned what they were going to write and remembered to use exclamation marks for emphasis.
For Black History Week the children have been learning about the artist Faith Ringgold. She was inspired by the quilts made by slaves and loved the way the quilts told a story. Faith Ringgold wrote a story called Tar Beach where she imagines flying across the city to her favourite bridge. The children thought about where they would like to fly to and create a collage using pastels and fabric.
The children have been showing their amazing Quest Homework. We have had such a variety from toys made from recycled materials, to food diaries and even a powerpoint on Greta Thunberg. I am so impressed with how confidently the children presented their work and how much effort has been put in at home. Here are just a few examples...
This week in Maths we have been learning to subtract - the children used diennes and number lines to support them. The big challenge was setting out the subtractions in columns in their books.
We have been continuing to look at addition and subtraction in maths and in our lesson today, we were adding three 1-digit numbers together. The children had to write their calculations on the table, which they were most excited about!
