We have had a wonderful, busy week this week! One more week until the Hedgehogs become Owls! Look below to see what we have been doing this week.
In our Maths learning, we have been learning how to tell the time to o'clock and half past. We have been using hand-held clocks to understand how the minute hand and the hour hand work together to tell the time. We remembered that o'clock means the minute hand is always on 12, and that for half past, the minute hand goes halfway around the clock to land on 6. Here are some games below that you can play to practise telling the time!
Can you work out the times shown on the clocks below?
In our English learning, we have been planning and creating our own invented stories, based on the book of the Storm Whale! The children created their own characters, build-up, problems and endings to the story. The children produced amazing stories which the children were so proud of. The children will be bringing their English books home at the end of next week so you can see all their fantastic work. Can you remember what your story was about? Who was your main character? What did your main character find?
Other Curriculum Areas
In our Art this week, we were continuing our work by experimenting with wool. This week, we learnt about skills to do with wool weaving, such as knotting, threading and plaiting. The children chose some colours and they practised making a bracelet/necklace using these different strategies. Here are some of their fantastic creations!
We have also been creative in our DT lessons as well! Last week, the children designed "Moving Pictures" for a friend in their class. The children designed a picture that would include levers and sliders. This week, the children made their creations. The children used cards and different materials to create their stories. We found the split pins especially very tricky! The children then gave their products to the person they designed it for and then gave feedback to their partner. The children loved rating their creations out of 10 stars! Here are some of their creations below!
There are no spellings to learn for the final week of school so please feel free to keep your child's spelling record book at home.
All the reports have been sent out as of Friday 14th July at 3:40 pm. If you have any questions about your child's end-of-year report, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or meet me in person after school.
Have a lovely weekend!
