Katie Morag Clay Models - 2nd October 2018
Today we made our own clay models of different parts of the Isle of Struay. We made models of the Redburn Bridge, The Post Office, Castle McColl and the supply boat among other things.
Measurement - 26th September 2018
This week we have been learning how to use the rulers to measure different objects. Today we measured different parts of our body. We used border rolls to measure different parts, such as our arm span, and then we used a metre stick to see how long they are. Once we had all measured the different parts we compared them using <, > and =.
Topic - Old Fashioned Games - 13.9.18
Today we were learning about games that were played in the olden days. We played the clapping game 'A sailor Went to Sea, Sea, Sea' and the running games Foxy-Chicken-Hen and The Shepherdess and Her Sheep. In Foxy-Chicken-Hen is similar to 'What's the Time Mr Wolf?' and The Shepherdess and Her Sheep is very similar to 'British Bulldog'. We had lots of fun playing these and we definitely want to play these again!
Science - Lego
This half term we are looking at famous scientists and inventors. This week we have learned about Ole Kirk Christiansen. He invented lego nearly 70 years ago, we discussed the different properties of Lego and talked about why it was good for building models. We then built some models to demonstrate it's properties.
Monet - September 2018
This half term we are learning about landscapes and cityscapes with Mrs Sherwood. This week we looked at Monet's 'Water Lily Pond' and then we created our own versions of this. We used our fingers and cotton buds instead of paintbrushes.
Place Value - September 2018
This week we have been practising our counting and looking at how numbers are made. We have been looking at hundreds, tens and ones and comparing numbers. To apply our knowledge we have been picking numbers at random, saying what they are and then getting the correct number of cubes or ten sticks and ones. Also, we have made models using the tens and ones and got our friends to work out what our model was worth.
