What we have been up to…

In English, we have been looking at poetry, and discussing and writing sentences to tell people our opinions on a few different poems. At home you could have a listen to our favourite poem we listened to - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imMVL56j9JQ.
In maths, we have looked at recognising the difference between equal to, greater than and less than, also learning the symbols for these, and we even introduced number lines towards the end of our week. We have been super mathematicians throughout the half term, but this week especially!
In science, we consolidated our learning all about animals with some fun quizzes!
Friday has been a particularly exciting day at Moss Park, as it has been our Diwali day! We have made our own clay divas, created some Rangoli patterns and even learnt how to do Diwali dancing! I
