It was lovely to see the children back feeling refreshed after their half–term holidays.
In English, we started our Poetry unit which focused on our senses. The children began by using their own senses to describe how the wind moves things and the sounds it makes. They listened to a poem called, When the Wind Blows and worked together in small groups to recite a verse each. They had fun using instruments and objects to create sound effects and then perform to each other.
In Maths, the children have been learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. They have been able to sort shapes in a variety of ways using the vocabulary – flat, solid, faces, edges, vertices, straight sides and curved sides. Next week, we will continue to explore the properties of shapes.
In RE, we used role-play to gain an understanding of the sacrament of Baptism and discussed the symbols used during a Baptism.
During PE, the children have been using the small apparatus. They have been thinking about different ways of travelling on the apparatus and moving safely with the correct technique.
Enjoy the weekend!
