How many bees are on each flower? How many is that altogether? Can you say that as a number sentence? Eg Four and three equals seven. Reveal the sum to see if you were right. Do you know the symbols for add (+) and equals (=)?
Problem solving. This is a great game to develop the Maths problem solving we have been doing this week
We will be designing our carnival masks, first step is to decide on our favourite colours, textures and materials.
Week beginning 30.1.17
In phonics we will be reading and spelling words with the alternative 'u' and 'ow'
it makes a 'yoooo' sound in - unicorn uniform music
it makes an 'uh' sound in - umbrella full push
In numeracy we will be solving word problems involving adding and taking away.
In the Rio carnival there were 14 samba bands playing and 3 had a rest. How many were left playing?
Don't forget to write the number sentence and show how you worked it out?
Kung Hey Fat Choi
Next week (23.1.17)
The children working in the continuous provision during topic time decided to make the Amazon Rainforest. They included a waterfall and the Amazon River, they used the books to look up what they might need, they chose the grass, twigs, trees and leaves. Next they put some of the Amazon animals in and decided that they fish to be swimming down the river. We all thought they did an AMAZING job and worked so well independently and as a team just like which Super Learners?
We have all made musical shakers like the ones the Samba schools might use in the Carnival parades. We had to choose from dried peas, pasta or rice for the inside to make the shakers sound different.
Look at our fantastic models we made. Can you guess what they are?
Thomas made the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Jaya made the flag of Brazil and Lucas made Sugar Loaf Mountain.
We have made such a fantastic improvement in our writing, just compare the first writing we did at the beginning of this term and just a week and half later after lots of teaching and learning it now looks like this. Here are just some children's before and after. (remember it has only been a week and a half )
We used the internet and books to search for new facts about the amazing country of Brazil. Hijaab found out that Rio de Vida means .. River of Life.
This has been our favourite activity this week, we loved learning this dance/martial art. It comes from Brazil, and helps us to learn about our Rights to an Education , our Rights to play and have fun and our Rights to be safe. To be good at Capoeira we must think about our Super learners, we need to a Ravi Respecter, a Healthy Henry, a Safe spike and a Lindi Listener. Capoeira is LOTS of fun. We can't wait for next week.
WE are going to work as hard as the Brazilian football team. First we have to learn to be agile (do you know what that means?). Alexander found out that Brazil have won the World Cup 5 times. Do you think they are the best team in the world?
In maths we have been comparing the weight of objects we found out which are the heaviest / lightest using the balance scales. We then used the scales to find objects that are heavier, lighter or weigh the same as 1kg.
