In maths this week we have been investigating related calculations using multiplication and division (e.g. if 3 x 5 = 15 we know that 3 x 50 = 150). This should help us as we move onto multiplying and dividing bigger numbers. We have also spent some time on Times Table Rock Stars practising our times tables. The children have their log in stuck in the front of their homework book and should can play at home.
The children have been writing their stories this week based on our book ‘Leon and the Place Between’. They imaged Leon climbing into the box at the circus and decided where he went and what adventure he had. We had some fabulous stories and Leon ended up in some amazing places!
We were lucky enough to have Anna come in to spend time with us this week and she made bird boxes and seed feeders which the children really enjoyed.
In Science we are moving onto looking at flowers and the part they play in the attraction of bees and insects and the reproduction cycle.
In RE we continued to learn about Shabbat and how it effects Jewish Children.
Finally, in Art, we used chalk pastels to blend colours to create Georgia O’Keefe themed pictures of flowers. This links our Art lesson to Science.
