This half term has been fun filled and action packed. We have explored all that is ‘Weird, Wacky and Wonderful’ through investigation and exploration.
During our English lessons, we explored the text of ‘The Bear and the Piano’ and learnt all about how the bear felt being so far away from home. We wrote a diary entry as if we were the bear exploring his wonderful adventure to the ‘big city’. Next, we read the follow-on story written by the same author, David Litchfield. This story is called ‘The Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the fiddle. From this story, we learnt all about the importance of friendship. We wrote letters from Hector (the main character in the story) to his friend, Hugo (the dog).
In maths, we learnt all about positional language using directions, half and quarter turns clockwise and anti-clockwise and began problem solving using the most efficient methods. We love finding the quickest, most efficient way to complete any challenge.
Within our RE lessons, we have looked at our gospel unit to explore our big question of- What is the good news that Jesus brings?
In our Computing lessons, we have created digital music using an online program called Chrome Music Lab. It was great fun exploring pitch and tempo to create music.
During our Art and design lessons we have completed a stick transformation unit in which we used everyday objects imaginative to make our very own worry doll and a coronation crown.
We successfully completed our secret agent training and enjoyed a special treat for working so hard to complete the quizzes to become secret agents.
