We created beautiful art work out of nature.
During Science we investigated whether paper would be a good material to make a bridge. In teams, we tried to make a bridge which would hold the weight of a toy car. As a class, we found that paper is not a good material to make a bridge because it’s too weak!
This week in English we are learning about non-fiction texts. We have learned some features of non-fiction writing including a contents page, bold text, glossary, photographs and captions. We enjoyed looking through non-fiction texts in our classroom to label some of the features that we could see.
During Geography we enjoyed learning about directional language including North, South, East and West. We used treasure maps to give our partners directions to get to the treasure. We tried to use directional language such as ‘take two steps East and one step North’. We did a superb job!
During art, we applied our learning from Geography by drawing physical and human features of London. We used felt tips, paint and oil pastels. It was so much fun!
This week in Geography we are learning all about physical and human features. We went for a walk down Church Lane to search for physical and human features. We saw physical features such as empty fields, green grass and tall trees. We saw human features such as a tall church, St Andrews school and a big house.
We have had so much fun in our Lego workshop. As a class, we worked together to build London. We built Big Ben, the Tower of London, Hyde Park, the River Thames, the London Underground, Tower Bridge, London Zoo, Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street.
In maths we have been learning all about place value. We have been learning to partition numbers to 100 into tens and ones.
