Art – Moving Monsters
In art we turned cardboard boxes into a moving monster. We used coloured paper to decorate and create features such as tails, spikes, wings and body parts. The children made the mouth move using plastic tubes with a balloon attached and selotape.
Dance Workshop – Alice in Wonderland
This week we took part in a dance workshop. The facilitator taught us the dance step by step and showed us how to use our bodies to tell the story of Alice in Wonderland. We had so much fun practising the steps and interpreting the moves in our own way. At the end of the workshop we put all of the steps together and performed the whole routine together.
Maths - Money
This week we have been exploring and learning about money. We have been learning about the value of the different coins and notes and then ordering them from smallest value to greatest value. Once we learnt the value of the coins and notes we practiced counting and adding different amounts. We also learnt how to write amounts in pounds and pence.
WORLD BOOK DAY!
We celebrated World Book Day by having a Mad Hatter tea party. We had some special visitors in the morning who shared the story Alice in Wonderland with us and then enjoyed a tea party where we shared lots more stories. We spent the whole day celebrating reading and sharing our favourite books.
Geography - The United Kingdom
We used atlas' and iPads to research key information about the four countries of the United Kingdom. We used the maps and atlas' to look for capital cities and flags. We used the iPads to find out the population and language spoken in each country. We worked in pairs and practiced taking turns and working together.
Maths - Volume
This week we have been learning about volume and capacity in maths. We learnt the we measure volume in litres and millilitres and that capacity is how much liquid a container can hold.
