For Geography we looked at an aerial photograph of the local area and a map of the same area. We discussed differences and similarities between the two. We tried to find the school and find our homes. As an extra challenge, we even tried to retrace our way back home.
For Maths, we looked at more than to find numbers and to compare numbers using the more than symbol.
We each had a go at drawing monsters with different amounts of features, for example - the monster had one more than 6 arms. It was great seeing the different types of monsters that were drawn up and we were able to share it with each other.
We also had a chance to use the more than symbol to compare two different numbers and as a challenge we had to explain how we knew the answer.
Black History Month
As part of Black History Month, we looked at a globe to find Africa and talked about it being a continent made out of lots of countries. We watched some videos of traditional African dancing and learned about a Harvest Dance called Dinhe which is from Zimbabwe.
We all had a go at doing it ourselves.
Jessica – It was fun putting your foot across and back and then jumping
Preciuos – It was easy
Sudais – I liked jumping
Mardoche – I liked dancing
Juliet – I thought the music was fancy
Below is the link to the dance lesson that we followed:
Have a go!
For science we have been learning about our 5 senses and our challenge have tried be able to name them all.
We focused on the sense of smell and managed to try and identify smells of certain foods and describe them.
Jessica - It was hard to guess the onion. I remembered the smell but I didn't know what it was.
Arthur - I liked almost all of the smells. The only one I didn't like was the honey because it was too sweet.
Barnaby - Some of the smells were disgusting, I didn't even like the smell of honey.
Yasir - The honey was nice
Precious - It was fun
Today we went for an Autumn walk and talked about all things autumnal. We had a chat about seasons and what occurs over the autumn season such as weather change, celebrations and how animals prepare themselves for winter. We talked about what deciduous and evergreen trees and looked out for them from the school.
