Apologies and many thanks.
As requested by the children, here is a copy of our class text for the next three weeks. Can you find the alliteration, the 'ly' words, any questions, character names? The children are using a story map to chant and put actions to the text this week.
We had a visitor in school today and she taught us some traditional Chinese dance moves and then our visitor gave us dragon heads, umbrellas and a huge dragon tail to use our new moves in a dragon dance. Here are some photos of us but you can also find some short clips in the video section.
As part of our topic on Land Ahoy we came across a problem where someone had spilled a liquid on the captain's deck. We had to work out which material would best absorb the liquid.
To measure this fairly we made a fair test with equal amount of liquid and the same size piece of material. Look how we measured how much liquid was absorbed and how much remained!
To start our topic on Shape we had to work in a team, using an envelope of lollipop sticks and make as many different 2D shapes as possible. We had to consider the number and length of sides and corners. Each shape had to be the same colour of sticks. We had fun and talked about 2D shape properties.
