Rhyming, Shapes, Money and Fire!
This week we have had a very busy week of learning new things.
In English we have begun to learn what a poem is and have enjoyed some poems. We have discussed rhyming and non-rhyming words and repeition as well as the layout of different poems. This week children will be bringing home a poem related to Bright Lights Big City, and we are asking that children practise these ready for a recital next week. Children are welcome to recite them with actions if they wish! Here is an example of Merlins' class practising in school. As you can see, we are having lots of fun!
In Maths we have been learning to identify 3D shapes, including cubes, cuboids, pyramids and spheres. Can we spot 3D shapes in our environment? We have also begun to look at money and the value of different English coins. When we next go shopping, can I tell you the coins that you have?
In Topic we have started to learn about the Great Fire of London. Our teachers were impressed by how much we have remember so far! Can we tell you any facts about the Great Fire? We have planned to bring this event to life in the form of a Great Fire of Gravesend (on the school playground). We will be thinking about which materials are best to build a house from. Can we find materials that are strong, transparent or flammable at home? We are very excited for this.
In RE we learnt the parable of The Prodigal Son. Here we are freeze-framing where the younger brother returns to his family and this picture represents when everyone forgives each other.
