Spring Term

Parent Share as part of World Book day.

What we've been reading:

We're working really hard at being authors again this term, adding to our writing toolkits.

Our first book was 'I Don't Believe It Archie', we used this to write funny stories about something going wrong!

Next we looked at 'Did Romans really eat Flamingos?', to investigate the tools used for writing an information text.

We're now investigating dictionaries, using 'The dictionary of difficult words' to check the tools used to write a good definition.

Weather forecasts

This term we are studying weather and climate. To start this unit we learnt about types of weather, watched weather forecasts, and made our own weather reports!

Measuring length

We have been learning about measuring perimeter, and working out missing side lengths. We applied this to making rainbows!

Iron Age Roundhouses

We made Iron Age roundhouses in the garden and got very muddy! We made these as part of our work to understand what life was like in Britain, before the Romans invaded. We collected lots of mud, sticks, grass and leaves to use, and we worked in 'clans' to make our roundhouses. Some clans formed alliances, and others built walls around their villages. In the Iron Age we know they had walls around their settlements to protect them from attackers. Next week we are going to investigate what life looked like in Britain after the Romans invaded, thinking about what stayed the same and what changed.  

Get into shape day!

We had lots of fun on 'get into shape' day. We took part in many different shape related activities, including: 

- using coordinates to find letters that would reveal a secret message,

- racing to shapes, using vertices, edges, and faces, to work out what 3D shape was being described,

- working as a team to make a 2D shape, using everyone's bodies,

- estimating how many multi-link cubes were in the glass cabinet (there were over 1000!).
