Our work this week has been based on the book called Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus. It is written in rhyme and the children have been learning the repeated rhyme and then changing some of the words to make their own rhyme. They have been identifying alliteration in the text too and writing their own alliterative phrases.
In maths we have been continuing our work on fractions finding halves, quarters and three quarters of shapes and amounts.
In art the children have learnt how to make a colour lighter by adding white and have been exploring how to make different shades of one colour.
The children really enjoyed working with Darcy Turner to create a dinosaur. They cooperated with each other to roll the paper and attach it to the dinosaur sculpture.
The children have begun their work on poetry by learning to recite rhymes. They worked in groups to learn their poem and then performed it to the rest of the class with actions.
This week the children have been finishing their work based on The Dinosaur Who Lost His Roar. They thought about how they could make Sid's sore throat better and they have planned their own story about a dinosaur who lost his voice.
In science the childern have been finding out about different types of animals.
In maths the children have been comparing numbers using words such as greater, more, less and the same. Some children have begun to use the symbols that mean greater than, less than and equal to in their work.
The childern have had another busy week and enjoyed Roald Dahl Day on Tuesday.
They listened to the story of The Enormous Crocodile and found out that his Clever Tricks were not so clever after all. The children used the powder paints to mix shades of green which they then used to paint their own crocodile. Some children had a go at making crocodiles with snapping jaws using spit pins to join them together.
In our maths work this week we have been looking at the order of numbers. The children have been busy making numbers to go up in the classroom.
The children have had a lovely start to the new school year. They have been busy exploring the new learning environment and are getting to know each other.
They have painted a self portarit to go on our welcome board.
We will have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has a named PE kit inn school. Thank you.
We are looking forward to beginning our work on dinosaurs and we will be sharing lots of dinosaur stories. If your child has a story about dinsaurs at home that they would like to share with the class please send it in to school in their book bag.
