We have had a fantastic week this week. We were treated to an extra PE session this week where a cricket coach came and taught us some throwing and batting skills on Monday, and we had some rounders coaching on Thursday as well! Look below to find out what we have been doing in our other areas of our learning.



In our Maths learning, we have been learning about grouping this week. We have been learning about how we can group in groups of 2, 5 and 10. We then have been commenting on how many groups there and how many there are in total. Can you have a go at completing the sentences for each of the groups? Maybe see if you can write an addition sentence or a bar model for each grouping!



In our English learning, we have been boxing up the recount of Mr Armishaw's Amazing Easter Day. Then we innovated one of the events of his day. We worked in pairs to come up with some ideas. We then practised writing up the innovation in our own words. Here are some of the pictures taken from our story map. Can you tell your grown-up about that part of the recount? Make sure to use "I" instead of "Mr Armishaw" as a recount is written in the first person!



In our Topic learning, we have moved on from looking at the senses and now we are focusing on looking at animals. We looked at animals with a fantastic sense. Can you match the animal below to its best sense?

We then looked at how animals can be grouped by their features. The groups are mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and fish. We watched a fun video to learn all about the different types of animals. If you want to watch the video, follow the link here.


Have a go at this task below to test your knowledge of the animal groups!


We also looked at the diets of certain animals and we learnt about three different diets; carnivores, herbivores and omnivoresWe sorted animals into groups based on what they eat. Then we were treated to a very special activity. "The Major Zoo Society" asked the children to research 5 different animals to see if they were carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. To do this, we had to look at their "droppings". You can see a picture below! The children had to use sticks to press on the specimen to work out what that animal had eaten. We looked at owl, tortoise, frog, shark and bear droppings. Can you work out which specimen matched with what animal and what each animal ate? Maybe you can tell your grown up what type of diet it has, whether it is a carnivore, omnivore or a herbivore?
