This morning we were busy practising our assembly. Please to continue to help us with our words at home, so we are really confident next week.
This afternoon we were using our computing skills to play maths games logging on and off the computer, starting programmes and using the mouse and keyword to play games. The website we used is www.mathplayground.com
We used the addition and subtraction games to increase our quick recall of number facts.
We had a great session this afternoon looking at and discussing garden plants. We used magnifiers to look closely at Gerbera flowers and then we sketched them. We mixed colours create a colour for our flower picture and then carefully painted them.
They really did look beautiful.
We started our day thinking of the presents we would have given the Queen for her birthday and writing why we choose them for her.
In RE we are learning about Shabbat and today we have sung a song to help us remember some of what we have been learning. Maybe we can sing it for you at home. Here are the words
Two candles burn
A glass of Kiddish wine
It’s Friday night
And everything is fine.
The Challas cut
A piece for everyone
This Shabbat night
Boruch atah ha shem
It’s the end of the working week
And now it’s time to rest
It’s the start of the nice weekend
And that’s what we like best
We have been looking at traditional tales and comparing Jack and the Beanstalk to different stories. We enjoyed joining in with the repetitive parts from these well known tales.
We were great giants and big bad wolves.
We started our new topic today all about plants. We are using Jack and the Beanstalk as the basis for our topic.
We read a few versions of this story today and planted our own magic beans this afternoon – I wonder what will grow overnight !!
