SNOW DAY WORK - Fri 2nd March 2018
For English can the children please find out some facts about Factory Farming and then Organic Farming to support their learning in our work about the scarecrow. The children should aim to find a least 5 for each.
For maths please can the children use a ruler and measure the following objects accurately using cm and mm.
* The length of their reading book
*The length of the hand controller for the TV
*The length of the pencil that they are using right now
*The width of their glove from little finger to thumb
*The width of a photo frame
* The depth of the deepest part of the snow in the garden
* The length of their pencil case
* The length of an icicle
* The height of a glass
* The width of the letterbox on the front door
Thank you and make sure that you all take care in the snow.
Maths: In Maths, we looked at place value and tried to gain a better understanding of what each digit stood for in a number and can now write numbers as words and numerals up to three digits! We touched upon two methods of mental addition and subtraction and were allowed to choose which one we preferred to answer some really tricky maths questions.
English: In English we used The Window by Jeannie Baker to build on our descriptive writing and learning new ways to make our writing really interesting to read. We ended up writing our own descriptive piece about a beautiful countryside using lots of adjectives. We then read about Claude Monet 'The Painter who Stopped the Train' and wrote our own biography using the notes we took about his life.
Science: During science week, we all got involved with lots of fun experiments to do with the functions of plants. A plant was even murdered in our classroom! This helped us discuss whether the plant was murdered or just ripped apart and what makes a plat grow and survive.
Geography: In geography we have been looking at the world around us and identifying the different countries, continents and capital cities. We also had a look at the different rivers and mountains around the world and had to try and guess where each one was!
