It's been a very busy week here. We've been full swing into rehearsal for the upcoming KS2 performance of Cinderella and Rockerfella! We're learning lots of songs and dances, and getting used to listening for cues and when to go on stage and off stage again. It's looking great.
In English, we went for our own 'walk around London' (see the photos) and made comments at each location. We then used these comments to practise writing speech and punctuating it with inverted commas. We also learnt about the present perfect tense and when to use it. In Maths, we've finished learning about time. Last week's focus was on analogue clocks, but this week we learnt to read digital time in both the 12 and 24 hour format. We had an interesting science lesson learning about the skeleton and bones. In geography, we looked at how the use of natural resources has changed over time and we also did some atlas work. We located Chile and discovered the shape of the country (did you know it's over 4,000 miles long but only around 60 miles wide?) We learnt about the natural resources that Chile has, including the copper mining industry.
Next week will be another busy one as we have class photographs on Tuesday, Quad kids on Thursday and rainbow day on Friday. We'll be continuing with plenty of play practise for most of the week, but will also be planning our own version of 'A Walk in London' as well as starting a new unit of Maths learning about 2D shapes and angles.
Have a great weekend.
