Welcome back to our classroom blog, where we'll take you on a journey through our exciting week of learning. This week has been packed with thrilling activities, from honing our football skills in PE to exploring a captivating new book in English, diving into place value and ordering numbers in maths, and even making beautiful music with glocks. Let's dive right in!
On Monday, the classroom welcomed an array of scarecrows, farmers, vegetables and animals as we celebrated the Harvest festival. This of course included singing about the brilliant Dingle Dangle Scarecrow! We kicked off our English lessons with the introduction of a captivating new book, 'The First Drawing' by Mordicai Gerstein. The story whisked us away to ancient times and ignited our imaginations. We can't wait to uncover the mysteries of this enchanting tale as we read together throughout the week.
In Mathematics, we have further explored place value, especially ordering and counting in 50s. With colourful manipulatives and engaging activities, we tackled challenging problems and strengthened our understanding of this essential math concept. The children are challenging themselves through tackling mathematical reasoning and problem solving questions in our Dive Deeper questions. Keep up the amazing work guys!
On Thursday, we laced up our sneakers and headed to the school playground for our PE session. It was all about football skills! We dribbled, passed, and even practiced some fantastic goals. Teamwork was key, and we cheered each other on as we improved our ball-handling abilities. The skills were then tested through playing an array of matches where those beautiful skills were showcased!
Our music class was an absolute blast today. We explored the enchanting world of glockenspiels, creating melodious tunes that filled the room. Each note felt like a piece of a musical puzzle, and together, we composed a beautiful piece that showcased our newfound skills. Music truly has the power to unite and uplift!
As the week drew to a close, we reflected on our journey of learning and growth. From our football games to our literary adventures, mathematical discoveries, and musical harmonies, it has been a week filled with laughter, camaraderie, and a thirst for knowledge. We're excited to carry this enthusiasm into the next week and continue our educational odyssey.
Don’t forget to get reading!! We look forward to hearing all about your favourite books on Monday!! This will be important in shaping our new reading display in the corridor.
Thank you for joining us on this wonderful journey through our classroom activities. Stay tuned for more adventures in the coming weeks as we continue to explore, learn, and grow together. Until next time!
