What’s wrong with eating lots of sugar?
Why do I need to eat fruits and vegetables?
In MP1 we continued our learning about monarch butterflies. We learnt all about the butterfly life cycle and made our own examples. We also learnt about the how monarch butterflies have adapted to survive. They are very resilient!
In Society we learnt all about Pchum Ben and why we celebrate it here in Cambodia. We practised different customs and traditions, including: folding the petals of a lotus flower, making a traditional dish Num Ansom Chek with sticky rice and banana (yummy!) and taking turns following the traditions and rituals in a pagoda.
In LITERACY we continued our learning about The Hungry Caterpillar. As we are writing our own stories this week, we thought about how we could use adjectives to describe the delicious fruit the hungry caterpillar eats! To help us with this learning task we got to eat lots of tasty foods and then used our senses to describe the sensations we were tasting and smelling! This activity really helped us to understand that an adjective is a describing word. Maybe you can describe the dinner you are eating tonight? Is it delicious, sweet, sour or crunchy or something else?
In MATHS we designed a variety of symmetrical patterns for butterflies using different colours, paint and fabric. We also showed our understanding by creating our own symmetrical pattern using lego. Symmetrical patterns are everywhere! Can you spot some anywhere?
In LITERACY we wrote our own version of the story Oliver's Vegetables. We created our own character who hated trying new things and NEVER ate their fruit. Throughout the story our characters became more adaptable and took some big risks, trying lots of new fruit. We made our writing interesting by using lots of adventurous and specific vocabulary e.g. exotic, succulent, zesty. Some of us even included speech marks in our writing. I wonder what you will be eating for dinner. Could it be ...pineapple pizza, mango mash or maybe banana pancakes?
In MATHS we have been carrying on with halving but looking at halving shapes rather than numbers. We have been practising using and writing fractions 1/2, 1/4 and 3/4. To investigate fractions further we tried to find as many different ways as we could to make these fractions within shapes.
