In our maths this week, we have been learning all about 2D shapes. We loved making them with friends in a game and sorting them according to their properties. This will help us as we move onto learning about 3D shapes. We also enjoyed learning about symmetry.
This week we have been learning about symmetry. We have found symmetry in 2D shapes and we have created symmetrical patterns.
We have loved World book day in Woodpeckers Class. We learnt a lot about the author Julia Donaldson because we love to share her stories together. Using a variety of her stories, we made paper dolls, wrote a postcard from Snail whilst he was off travelling with Whale and created our own terrible creature who lives in the woods just like the Gruffalo did.
Usain Bolt can run 100m in 9.58 seconds. Swallows went to the bottom playground to measure how far they could run in around 10 seconds. They measured accurately and recorded their distance in metres and centimetres.
This week we have been learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. In our music lesson we created our own musical scores altering the tempo of the music as we played it. Next week we will develop this further by considering the dynamics for each part.
We have been learning about The Great Fire of London and Chinese New Year. We made houses to demonstrate how the flames spread quickly from house to house in the wind. We also made Chinese fans and dragons.
We have been studying materials and their properties in science. We have designed, made and tested swords and shields. We had to think about which materials would be suitable to make these items and why.
