I cannot quite believe another half-term has flown by!
During our topic work this week the children found out about transport around the world such as gondolas, tuk-tuks and sea planes. Afterwards, they chose a mode of transport to research on the iPad.
In RE we began our new topic on ‘Being Sorry’. The children used role-play to act out situations where their behaviour could affect others. This gave them the opportunity to talk about their choices and the consequences of their actions on others.
In English the children have been listening to a story about Sammy and his trip in a hot air balloon. This inspired them to plan and create a story of their own. The children really enjoyed you visiting the class on Friday as it gave them the opportunity to share their work with you, especially their hot air balloons and the song that they enjoyed singing.
In Science the children enjoyed exploring their five senses and learning about how our senses can help us and other animals to keep safe, for example, hearing someone shout, seeing danger, feeling if something is hot and how taste buds react to certain foods.
For homework the children have been given a number square and word activity to complete. I have allocated a Maths game on the Abacus website for them to complete as well. The children also enjoy the games on www.phonicsplay.co.uk during our phonics lessons which they may like to play at home.
There is lots happening next half-term and the children are looking forward to our new topic on ‘Famous People’. As we have a lovely celebration on Friday 10th June to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday I thought it only fitting that we begin with Queen Elizabeth.
Enjoy the holidays!
