Our morning began identifying different units of time through seasons, months and days of the week. Closely followed by making, drawing and reading analogue clocks to the hour. Take a look at the afternoon time challenge, involving a famous landmark in London.
As part of Sports Week, we have been thinking about eating a healthy balanced diet and not eating too many sugars. Some of us thought that this could be tricky because we have a sweet tooth so we decided that we could eat natural sugars like those found in fruits. We used our bridge technique to cut pieces of fruit and make our own fruit kebabs which were eaten in seconds!
As part of Sports week, we have been learning about healthy eating and the different food groups. We then made our own fruit kebabs this morning, practising careful cutting with a knife. The children were very sensible and said the fruit kebabs were delicious!
As part of our Holidays topic, we have been learning about different countries where we might go on holiday. Today we are learning about Spain and Italy and we have made our own pizzas! Our spreading skills with a knife are fantastic and we can’t wait to eat them later!
Today as part of our ‘Holidays’ topic, we have been learning about camping and the places in the U.K. we might go. The children have loved our camping role play area and what better way to bring it to life than actually toasting marshmallows on a real camp fire! We sang songs and our marshmallows tasted delicious! Well done to all the children who were so sensible, we’ve all had such a lovely day!
This afternoon, Year 2/1 have completed their fantastic seaside scenes and I’m sure you’ll agree, they look fantastic! They have worked extremely hard with every step from painting their boxes, creating their lighthouses, cutting out and decorating their shells to making their own origami whales! Well done Year 2, you worked brilliantly together and your seaside scenes have made us all excited about our upcoming trip to the beach!
Year Three have been learning how to add fractions. We have used this to plan our very own fractions picnic! We had a given amount of food that we were allowed and we made this using different foods. We worked out what fraction of our whole each food was and then found different addition problems for these fractions.
