MATHS - at the beginning of the week, the children all learned the skill of using a ruler accurately to draw rectangles to given heights and lengths. This proved to be very tricky for lots of them but all the children demonstrated great resilience and were very proud of themselves!
English - this week the children have continued to get to know the story of The Queen's Knickers. They drew some brilliant story maps, and created a boxing-up grid (plan) and at the end of the week they re-told the story, using their own words, thinking about adjectives and the correct sequence of the book.
Quest - for our topic The Best of British - the children were comparing old (The Tower of London) and new (The Gherkin) buildings. They looked at the purpose of these buildings, what they were built from and why and who designed them.
In Maths, We have started our unit on position and direction by exploring positional and directional language practically. We took part in a carousel of activities which included programming the Beebots to get them from a starting point to a finishing point, using the Beebot programming game on iPads and creating an obstacle course, blindfolding our partner and then guiding them through the course by using the correct directions. We have been specifically looking at the language forwards, backwards, left, right, quarter turn and half turn.
We enjoyed obstacle races on the field today for P.E.
