What a busy week we have had Robinson class.
In English, we have been learning to retell the story Duck in the Truck. The children have thoroughly enjoyed using signs to support retelling the story. The children became news reporters and retold the events in the style of a non fiction text. I was very impressed when the children wrote their own news paper articles including information in chronological order from the story and eyewitness quotes.
In Maths, we have been developing our understanding on place value. The children have enjoyed using a range of resources to group objects into tens and ones before identifying and writing the numeral. For some children we moved into place value of numbers above 100.
In Science, we have been learning about what animals need to survive. We discussed things we need to survive and things we enjoy having. It was a very enjoyable debate when we discussed whether we could survive without our Ipads and technology.
In forest school we used natural resources to create our own woodland art. The children had to hunt for different coloured leaves and shapes twigs to create their own elves.
In Art, we have been learning to create different tones and lines using our pencil. I was so impressed as all of the children fully engaged in creating a variety of different lines whilst listening to calming music. It was a wonderful lesson that we all enjoyed.
In RE, we have been learning about the different Gurus. The children learnt what the 10 gurus taught and related it to their own experiences.
The Year 6s have begun learning to play the Ukulele. We had a great time learning a song that helped us remember the features of the Ukulele and even playing a short tune.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
