Boat Adventures

Over the next few weeks in literacy we will be looking at recount texts.  I have loaded a link to a really interesting film called Little Boat by Nelson Boles.  We will be watching this film and seeing if can recount the adventures that the boat has.

How do you think the Little Boat was repaired?

Toy game

Here is the toy website we have been using in topic lessons this week.  Have a go at sorting old and new toys and describing them using their properties.

Map reading

Last week we did another exciting activity with year 5.  As part of their geography lessons they had drawn maps of the playground and then some of the class had hidden numbered flags in the playground.  Working in teams we had to search the playground to find the numbered flags and then plot them onto a playground map.  This was a real test of our ability to read a map.

Reverend Heather visits

Last week in RE we were lucky enough to have Reverend Heather visit us and share with us what she does in her role as a Reverend and the clothes that she wears.  You all asked very thoughtful questions and took the opportunity to recap the Easter story with Reverend Heather.

Thank you Reverend Heather.

Maths - telling the time and sharing

Take a look at our maths work from last week.  We did a great job in our first lessons on sharing well done year 1.

Our science topic this half term is forces.  We all had fun exploring push and pull forces using play dough, sorting toys and investigating how a water wheel / toy car / paper aeroplane moves.

Check out our photos and then test your knowledge about forces by playing the game and taking the quiz.
