In English we have been using the notes we made last week to write information texts about bears. We had to work hard to turn our notes into full sentences, joining our ides with conjunctions and starting our sentences in different ways. We wrote about the eight different species of bears, where bears live, what they eat and what they look like.
At the beginning of the week, in maths, we continued our work on fractions, counting in halves and quarters using number lines. Later in the week we brushed up on our adding and subtracting skills. We had to use our reasoning skills to help us solve different problems and challenges. For example, ‘The total of 3 odd numbers will always be odd, true or false?’ Each time we solved a problem we had to prove our answers and explain our thinking.
At the end of last week we carried out a really interesting investigation involving bread, dirty hands and clean hands! We’ve started to see the results this week – ask us to tell you all about it.
On Tuesday we were fortunate enough to have a visit from Mr Wilkes to talk about bees. He showed us some of his bee keeping equipment, photos of his hives and explained how bees make honey. We also got to taste some of the honey. It was delicious! We asked lots of interesting questions and listened really carefully to the answers.
This morning we spent the morning in our new classroom with Miss Smith. We had a great time. Ask us to tell you what we got up to.
Have a lovely weekend
Mrs Marsh, Mrs Lucas, Mrs Scott and Class 2
