We’ve been busy again this week in RR class. Our maths focus has been on time. We have been measuring time and discussing the language that we use when talk about time.

We have been making really big clocks! We have worked together to find where the numbers go and we have even pretended to be the big hand and the little hand. Do you know what time it is?

We have been using timers to race and see how many beads we can thread in a  set time! how many beads do you think you could thread in one minute? It’s trickier than you think!

We have been playing in our very own Travel agents! We been booking holidays, using the globe to fond out where we would like to go, and looking through our travel magazines to explore what different places have to offer. Some of the places even have football pitches! When can we go?

Where would you like to go on holiday?
Are you going on any holidays this year?

We had a lot of fun trying to make life sized cut outs too! We were really inspired by some of Miss Roberts resources and so tried to make our own. Here you can see us really working together to try and roll the paper out and draw around each other. We even tried to cut them out!

We were even lucky enough to see a show this week all about being late! Now we know just how important it is to be on time every day! We really enjoyed it! There was even a quiz!

Can you remember why it is important to be on time?

This week we’ve also been focussing on Africa. We have been talking about African animals and have read the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. We have even been learning an African Nursery Rhyme called ‘Kye Kye Kule’. Can you remember the actions?

Wow we’ve been so busy! I wonder what next week will bring?

Last Week of Term!

Everything has been going so fast! It’s the last week of the Autumn term and looking back on our Blog, we can see how busy we have all been!

This week we got the privilege of seeing the Key-Stage 2 production which we really enjoyed!

This week we have been working hard as Santa’s little helpers, designing, wrapping and fixing the presents for Christmas day!
We have even been giving gifts to each other and  talking about how gifts make us feel when we give and receive them.

Here we are sporting our PE kits and headbands that we made especially for our class production. We were so proud to sing to our parents on the big stage!

This week we have also been exploring ice. We have been talking about how ice freezes, and why it melts. We have been using our senses to describe how it feels and talking about the ice might be melting when we hold it in our hands.

Why do you think ice melts when you hold it?

What is ice made from?

This week we have also been creating a variety of different decorations, from snow-cone men, to glittery Christmas trees! We have even been making bead decorations that look like candy canes!

We have also spent a lot of time this week making and writing out Christmas cards for our family and friends. Here a few of the designs we have made.

Have you been given any Christmas cards? Who were they from?
