After a great class assembly from Oak we revised our 3D shapes learning and then described positions of 3D shapes using mathematical words. Some of us worked as a group and Mrs Blacker wrote our position sentences.
To finish our RE topic looking at Shabbat today we made the special Jewish bread, Challah. In groups with Mrs McC we mixed all the ingredients and kneaded the bread. Then we left it to rise before rolling out the dough and plaiting our bread. After more time to rise the bread went to be cooked. All that was left was to eat some fresh bread (and do the washing up!). Alfie said the bread was yum, yum!
We recited the first verse of Daffodils by William Wordsworth in school meeting today, and showed some of our fantastic daffodil paintings. It was very hard to draw and paint the daffodil shape accurately.
This week we have continued our plants topic by looking at trees. We explored the trees on the school grounds and did some bark rubbings and tree hugging ! We then discussed the different types of tree and chose one to sketch.
We have also been learning poetry and have tried hard to recite the first verse of William Wordsworth’s -Daffodils poem. Ask us for a recital we are really good 😉
Our painting of daffodils are beautiful too – a real ‘host of golden daffodils’
Another busy afternoon in Sycamore class. We were learning about how Jewish people celebrate Shabbat in their families. Alfie thinks the bread they eat looks very tasty. We hope we can manage to fit in a baking session this term and have a go at making our own Challah bread.
Then we moved on to maths and 3D shapes, sorting shapes, playing lotto and pairs matching examples of 3D shapes to their names. Described shapes using mathematical words. I wonder if we can use these words to describe objects to you at home?
“It was so much fun” said Mollie.
The children were confident speakers, singers and performers this morning. We are so proud of them all. Thank you children and parents for all your hard work learning the songs and words.
