We have had a lovely first week back after the half-term break. 


In maths, we started our new unit of work: Position & Direction. We have been using the vocabulary, 'forwards', 'down', 'left', 'right', 'quarter turn', 'half turn', 'clockwise' and 'anticlockwise' to describe movements. Show someone at home what you can do: 



In English, we have been learning our new model text: The Magical Kingdom Adventure Park. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be learning how to write a persuasive advert. Can you tell someone at home what our model text is all about? What does 'persuasive' mean? To begin our unit of work, in small groups we created a poster all about why we think the summer or winter is the best time of the year. We then shared these with the rest of the class to try and convince them to agree with us! Can you remember what your arguments were?


In science, we started our new unit of work: Plants. At the beginning of the week, we explored different plants that we eat. Can you name some? We explored the differences between fruits and vegetables. Can you tell someone at home how we can differentiate between a fruit and a vegetable? We then explored different fruit seeds. We used a magnifying glass to look up close to the different seeds and compared them. Which fruits did we look inspect? What did they look like? Later in the week, we explored what plants need in order to grow into healthy plants. Can you remember what they need?


Well done Owls on a great week back. Have a lovely weekend!
