Well, we have made it! What a busy, but quick half-term it has been. This week has involved some writing, some measuring and some amazing Glockenspiel playing. Read on to find out more…
In English, we have finished our Diary Entries. The children created some very detailed descriptions of lovely Saturday’s they have had. They thought very carefully about the features of a diary entry and used them with great effect. Well done Puffins.
Within our Maths we have carried on with our Length and Perimeter unit. We have this week concentrated on adding and subtracting lengths. This has involved converting from mm to cm and cm to m, as well as the other way around. We will carry on after half-term thinking about what perimeter is and how to calculate it. All of the children have a game of times table battle-ships in their book bags. It would be lovely if they could play this over half-term to continue helping them with their times tables.
We carried on our Musical Glockenspiel unit this week by learning a song using the D,E and F notes. The children hugely impressed me with how quickly they picked up the song and were very confident in their performance. Amazing work Puffins.
Our Topic lesson this week involved us learning about traditional Swedish homes. We thought about their features, the classic red exterior painting of them, how some can have thatched rooves and how some people even have a holiday home. We also talked about the fact that lots of Swedish homes have a Sauna. After learning all of this information the children created an advert for a traditional Swedish home. They thought about all of the features that make them individual and these as unique selling points.
I hope you all have a lovely, well-deserved half term and I look forward to seeing you all back for the second half of our Spring Term. Which will involve lots more Sweden, book week, Newspaper articles and many more exciting things.
Thank you for all of your continued support throughout this half term.
