Madame. Pooley is our class teacher.
(We have been learning about France in Class 2...can you tell?!)
In English, we have been working hard on retelling and writing traditional tales. We used Talk for Writing to read and learn a story using a text map so we could learn all about the types of words we should use and how a story builds up. This was really helpful because then we wrote some FANTASTIC stories of our own!
In Maths, we have been practising using equipment and numberlines to add two 2-digit numbers.
In Art, we have painted our own masterpieces based on Monet's Garden:
We also used pastels to draw landscapes after looking at our local area:
We visited St Leonard's church and Reverand Sandra gave us the grand tour! The church is part of our academy logo as it just across the road from school! Beautiful features of the church, like its spire, helped to influence parts of our landscapes.
None of us included the Eiffel Tower in our landscapes, but we did make models of it using Lego and other building resources! (Ooh la la!)
In Science, we are now learning about animals and their habitats - that means where they live. We need to be very careful around school - a polar bear left its paw prints all over school! Maybe it's here because the weather is getting colder and polar bears are suited to the cold...
We have been linking our Science to our English by writing non-fiction reports about the animals and where they live.
Throughout the year, we would love to share news and pictures of what we're getting up to in our learning so come back soon!
This term our topic is 'Let's Explore!'. Last week we had a mysterious visitor in Class 2. Luckily, Mrs Pooley discovered that it was Bob who had visited us from space. We have read about Bob and his job on the moon. We are looking forward to writing our own fantasy stories later in the term.
In maths we are busy learning how to multiply and divide. We are using these skills to learn our times tables and work through our Super Hero challenges!
